Terry Riley’s “In C” played by the Social Music Workgroup

Thursday Feb 14 @ Music Gallery, 8pm

In 1964, the San Francisco Tape Music Center hosted the world premiere of “In C” by California composer Terry Riley, the work that launched American minimalism as we know it. This revolutionary piece can be played by any number of musicians (at a variety of skill levels) and consists of 53 “modules” that can be repeated and then moved on from at each player’s own decided pace. Organized by Steve Kado, the Social Music Workgroup been playing “In C” in various configurations around Toronto since 2003, as well as performing at the Wordless Music Series in New York in 2007. This Valentine’s Day edition may include members of the Creeping Nobodies, Singing Saw Shadow Show, Jon-Rae & the River and Rosazia. — Jonny Dovercourt

 

Huckleberry Friends

Thursday Feb 14 @ Music Gallery, 9pm

Disarming and charming, lilting and stilting, favourites of the local community for fey harmonies and earnest, beautiful, haunting songs that seem to be all written and played for the ghosts in attendance. The term was coined by Henry Mancini in Moon River, and Urban Dictionary.com says this: “There are your good friends: people who love you. And then there are your huckleberry friends: people who’ve known you for years and have stuck by you and love you no matter what.” They’ve just completed a little five song recording at Dale Morningstar’s Gas Station and promise to be your closest friends. — Doc Pickles

 

Bruce Peninsula

Thursday Feb 14 @ Music Gallery, 10pm

Bruce Peninsula have the gift. You never really know what it takes for a band to blow up huge, but when you see the magic you can’t deny it. Their sound relies heavily on the percussion and heavily on the choir, sounding like post-rock gospel blues with a touch of something tribal. With an album on the way, you really need to see them now before they’re selling out three straight nights in 20 minutes. If indie rock was a stock market, these guys would be Google about to announce their IPO. — Ryan McLaren
