Man Forever is the ambient percussion-based project of Kid Millions, the drummer of Oneida.
ďWhen Kid Millions plays the drums, itís all about stamina.
He has built a career on percussive longevity, bashing away at his instrument
for hours on end with fury and expert precision. For 13 years he has been the
anchor of the Brooklyn band Oneida,
whose songs mix hypnotic Minimalism with skull-rattling metal and tend to hit
their pulsating stride only around the 15-minute mark," writes Ben Sissario of The New York Times.
Also performing will be:
a possible stripped-down performance by Valleyboys."Man Forever is inherently awesome because it is a non-improvised
performance involving musicians that have likely never worked together,
collaborating on a piece that was put together by an excellent composer, said Chris Lute. "I
also think it's important to note the emphasis on texture and timbre in Man
Forever over melody, and the freedom that gives the piece."
Lute plays with Valleyboys and was one of the integral players in bringing Man Forever to Athens and ARTS/West.
Come see the Brooklyn-based Man Forever and other performers at 5 p.m.
The show is free but donations will be taken and records will be available for purchase!
