Doors 6:30pm/Show 7:30pm
Join us on Sat, July 9 for a 2022 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! concert featuring Crumb with an opening performance by Slauson Malone 1.
Brooklyn native Lila Ramani fronts Crumb, whose seductive sound hovers somewhere between the hazy worlds of psych rock, lo-fi dream pop, and spaced-out free jazz. Slauson Malone 1, of the experimental underground collective Standing On The Corner, adds an intriguing combination of hip-hop and performance art.
*Please Note: Chairs will not be available at this show but you are permitted to bring your own.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Crumb’s second album, Ice Melt, takes its name from the coarse blend of salts that you can buy from your local hardware store for $9.99. When sprinkled on your wintry steps, this mixture absorbs water and gives off heat, transforming the ice into a viscous, briney slush and, eventually, nothing at all. Beginning with the dynamic chaos of “Up & Down,” and ending with Crumb’s closest thing to a lullaby, Ice Melt’s ten tracks combine, like ice sculptures melting into a glistening puddle. From the start, the group knew that cohesion was best achieved through plumbing their individual strengths — frontwoman Lila Ramani’s earliest songwriting, which catalyzed the group’s first two EPs; Bri Aronow’s knack for building (dis)affecting soundscapes; the hypnotic grounding of Jonathan Gilad’s drums, a Crumb mainstay; and Jesse Brotter’s distinctive bassplaying, which subtly traces Ramani’s vocal melodies while providing an unrelenting pulse. These collective skills make Crumb a project of independent self-discovery, four creative minds converging around an idea that is always shifting and reforming.
Slauson Malone 1 is a performance piece created by artist and musician Jasper Marsalis, exploring the possible intersections of popular music and performance art. His past releases include A Quiet Farewell (2016-2018), Vergangenheitsbewältigung, and for Star (Crater Speak). Slauson Malone 1 is accompanied by cellist Nicky Wetherell.
