VALERIE KUEHNE IS BACK AT THE SPOT. I WONDER IF SHE BROUGHT VINEGAR FOR US TO CONSUME THIS TIME??
THIS TIME SHE’S BRINGING The Wasps Nests WITH HER WHICH CONSISTS OF Jeffrey Young on violin (thingNY, The World/Inferno Friendship Society) and Alex Cohen on drums (Malignancy, Pyrrhon, Pak).
AS A FRIEND TO PERFORMANCE ART AND OUTWARD INTERACTIONS WITH THE CROWD, THERE’S A POSSIBILITY OF THIS ELEMENT BEING INCLUDED IN THE REPERTOIRE.
The trio plays a loving mix of grindcore, cabaret, performance art, punk, and neo-classical art song, with a dash of free improvisation for good measure. Valerie Kuehne is “part punk classical cellist, part performance artist, but her performance art isn’t the foofy, mannered kind – it’s oldschool 80s style and it has fangs. And it’s hilarious” (Lucid Culture).
