Double-header of new/experimental classical music by Atlanta locals Bent Frequency hosting New York-based Amp.

Bent Frequency

Bent Frequency brings the avant-garde music tradition to life in Atlanta through adventurous programming, the promotion of New Music, and a creative synthesis of music and media. Our vision is to redefine the traditional music experience - ushering it from the strict formality of the concert hall into the fresh air of contemporary artistic expression and experimentation.


Amp is a new music group based in New York City that grapples with experimental, electroacoustic, gestural, or situational compositional trends in the context (for the perspective) of a broader musical modernism. Without fixed ensemble, we draw from the rich new music scene in New York to organically develop a few concerts each year, each usually featuring a particular composer or nexus of compositions.

Smoking Spore / The Subliminator November 9, 2010
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $5
"Thick psychedelia, sweet solos, and awesome guitar sounds" - Decibel Magazine
"These guys are tight like spandex." - Planet Fuzz
"A strong whiff of Hendrix and Satriani" - Houston Press
"Goes way farther than most so-called exploratory bands would!" - Psychatrone Rhonedakk
"Smoking Spore score very high on the psychedelic rock meter" - Concrete Web

Smoking Spore is completely improvisational, which draws focus to the live act. It is a different performance every night. Psychedelic videos edited by one of the band members are aired during the performance via projector. The members are DIY electronics wizards, using unique effects developed by the band themselves. It is a four-piece act featuring a drummer, bassist, and two guitar players, one of whom switches back and forth between guitar and a restored 1968 Wurlitzer organ.

Future Islands

Future Islands are actually from the future.

J Gerrit Welmers, William Cashion and Samuel T Herring have been making music together since 2003, and as Future Islands since 2006, putting in the work. Formed as college friends in Greenville, NC, Future Islands relocated to Baltimore after becoming friends with Dan Deacon, an early and avid supporter of the band. They’ve released a handful of CD-Rs, tapes and limited vinyl releases, and their debut album "Wave Like Home" came out on UK label Upset the Rhythm in 2008. They’ve toured extensively in the US and Europe, including the Baltimore Round Robin tours and opening for and performing in Dan Deacon’s large ensemble.

For their effort, Future Islands have mastered their style, which Rolling Stone describes as, “adding punishing heft to simple pop melodies, making blippy electropop sound oddly confrontational.” Future Islands calls is “Post-Wave,” taking in part from the emotional fragility of New Wave and coupling it with the power and drive of Post-Punk.

Lonnie Walker

Lonnie Walker

Originally a one-man band, Lonnie Walker evolved from the solo spirit of Brian Corum into a collection of friends bound by their shared passion for music and visual art. Through the additions of Eric Hill, Justin Flythe, Raymond Finn, and Josh Bridgers; Lonnie Walker's music has evolved through their many ever-sharpening performances. Their chemistry resonates through their most recent recorded works unlike anything the band has turned in to date. Their blend of rootsy americana and dance-party punk-rock has only just started to find traction outside of their home
