Ahleuchatistas perform Dec. 7
The Ahleuchatistas are coming to Espresso News, and they’re not
The Asheville-based improvisational fusion outfit will perform Dec. 7, along with Bubbly Mommy Gun and Meridian.
According to the band’s official bio, Ahleuchatistas is guitarist Shane Perlowin and drummer Ryan Oslance “on a musical odyssey of pure imagination, limitless in influences, combining tight-knit composition with improvisation, and delivering powerful live shows.”
The project was founded in 2002, with its name the marriage of two words that “give an identity and conceptual continuity to a musical enterprise without limits,” the bio reads.
“Ah-Leu-Cha” is the title of a Charlie Parker song, while “Zapatistas” refers to the 1994 revolutionary movement in Chiapas, Mexico.
“Movement and the constant outstripping of itself are what unifies all the sounds under this single name,” the bio reads.
Also performing are Athens, Ga.-based Bubbly Mommy Gun, which specializes in “dreamy, off-kilter pop that is willfully obtuse in its experimentation,” according to the band’s promoter, and Meridian, a new-wave, synth-pop project from Sean Bos and Brennan Zerbe.
The concert starts at 10 p.m., and cover costs $5.
Espresso News is located at 267 Howard St. in downtown Boone. For more information, call (828) 264-8850.
