EVENTS: Saturday, December 6th: MAX OCHS & GHOST SHIP


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6TH AT 8pm:

MAX OCHS



Maryland's Max Ochs recorded two influential guitar pieces on a long out-of-print Takoma LP, 'Contemporary Guitar Spring '67', alongside tracks by John Fahey, Bukka White, Robbie Basho and Harry Taussig. 'Hooray For Another Day' contains exciting new instrumental works from this American Primitive master, including a new take on Fahey's arrangement of "In Christ There Is No East or West". The disc also contains several spoken word poems, one entitled "Phil", for Max's cousin, the late folk legend Phil Ochs. Max's tune "Imaginational Anthem" inspired the guitar compilation series of the same name on Tompkins Square. The album is a stirring personal statement from an overlooked yet vital American artist." -Tompkins Square

GHOST SHIP

A trio consisting of Mary Lattimore, Rosali Middleman, and Charles Cohen, Ghost Ship play dark improvised string and synth tangles. For this show they will be working as a duo, with plucked harp sweeps and strands of electric guitar. -m.m.
