Jordan Sand // Emily Beisel & Brandon Quarles @ HB
July 24, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
9pm // $8 // 21+
Weaving vocals into the organ-like resonances of the bowed double bass, Jordan Sand’s solo performances have been called “impressive” (New York Times) and described as “ninja bass-playing” (Obsolete Media Objects). Ranging from “dynamic pop-inflected solo pieces” (The Strad) to long meditations on ringing dissonance, her music deals with sex, innocence, anxiety, ancient and anthropocene myth, the decay of monotheism, and the brainstem hymn.

This is her Chicago debut, ahead of a performance at the 2019 Omaha Under the Radar Festival.
