8:30 pm
Abraxas — Masada: Book of Angels Vol. 19
Aram Bajakian (guitar) Eyal Maoz (guitar) Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (gimbri) Kenny Grohowski (drums)
Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz steps out on his own to make one of the most primal and tribal installments in the “Book of Angels”’ series. Drawing on his Sephardic roots, Shanir plays gimbri throughout, giving the music a primeval Moroccan edge. Featuring the intense guitar pyrotechnics of Eyal Maoz and Aram Bajakian (who recently has been tearing it up in Lou Reed’s new band) and the atavistic drumming of Kenny Grohowski, this is Ritualistic Jewish Rock for the 21st century by a brilliant young lion from the East Village via Brooklyn/Israel!


8/20 Sunday (NH)
8:30 pm
Abraxas — Psychomagia
Aram Bajakian (guitar) Eyal Maoz (guitar) Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (electric bass) Kenny Grohowski (drums)
Psychomagia is a complex new suite of music written expressly for ABRAXAS by Downtown alchemist John Zorn. Drawing inspiration from the magical writings of Giordano Bruno and Alejandro Jodorowski and others, Zorn has written a bold collection of compositions that challenge the musicians to the breaking point. With a program ranging from some of the most intense ritualistic sounds you are likely to hear to tender minimalistic odes, this is a surprising new volume in Zorn’s mystic series that matches the intensity and power of Moonchild, PainKiller and Naked City. MAJORI FORSAN CUM TIMORE SENTENTIAM IN ME FERTIS QUAM EGO ACCIPIAM—your fear in pronouncing this sentence over me is probably greater than mine who is receiving it.
