Above the Law: Dustin Wong
On September 20th, 2011 at 6pm, the Clocktower presents Dustin Wong, an exceptionally skilled guitarist experimenting with layers of intricately finger-picked improvisations built through a battery of effects and loop pedals. A founding member two groundbreaking groups out of Baltimore, Ponytail, Dustin has recently left the arms of Maryland to join the DIY community in Brooklyn. At this Above The Law performance, he showcases some of the new solo work he has been developing during this transition.
Organized by the Clocktower's Curator of Performance and Installation Joe Ahearn, Above The Law is a performance and installation series highlighting young and emerging artists and musicians. Titled in reference to the various legal offices and agencies that occupy the floors in the Clocktower’s City-owned building, Above The Law challenges preconceived notions about pop and avant garde art and music by featuring artists, bands, and performers that draw from both traditions.
