Second Sundays Streamcast March 2016
Clocktower Radio joins the monthly Pioneer Works open house festivities this March, with a full menu of online listening! Tune in to hear:
#trashDAY: Houston...We Have A Problem 3-5pm
In 1998 Disney Pictures released the animated feature, The Brave Little Toaster Goes To Mars, a return odyssey of talking appliances, planned obsolescence, a pet rat, enduring love and space travel. It is a terrible film, in a direct-to-video kind of way, but it poses a number of intriguing questions: What purpose does a toaster serve in outer space? Should toasters be militarized? Is there life on Maaaars? What is the Unified Field Theory? Did Albert Einstein wear a hearing aid? Is that your face I see, on my computer screen? k(Rob) and Doe Derek illicit the aural help of Mothership Afronaughts, "Intergalactic" Beastie Boys, Roger Troutman and Daft Punk with this month's episode of #trashDAY -- Houston...We Have a Problem. Kardashians as Cardassians, a homemade talkbox, a few tracks 'chopped & screwed', plus a celebration of Bolaji Badejo and Yaphet Kotto - the two black actors in the film ALIEN - will be featured. Plus lots of bloops, blips, zaps and pew-pews. Hold onto your space-panty-drawers, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Sameer Gupta DJ Set 5-6pm
Sameer Gupta is part of the Brooklyn Raga Massive artist collective that is currently holding a Wednesday evening residency at Pioneer Works through the end of April. He will be spinning vintage Indian classical music LPs that reflect the spectrum of Raga music which has been his calling as a professional musician for decades.
Los Hacheros 6-8pm
Los Hacheros, like many of their heroes, hail from New York City and play music with roots in Cuba and Puerto Rico. The group plays Son Montuno, Charanga, Salsa, and Bomba with a style that harks back to the early 70’s when groups such as Grupo Folklorico y Experimental Nuevayorkino were exploring the deep connection between the city and its Cuban and Puerto Rican roots.. Los Hacheros debut album, El Pilon, was released by Daptone records and made it on a number of the “best of the year” lists. Their follow up album, Banbulaye, was just released, also on Daptone, and was recorded live to vintage analog tape, giving the music a raw, but warm and open sound.. The five veteran musicians have played with Marc Anthony, Orquestra Broadway, Alfredo de la Fe and other latin legends. With Eddie Venegas – trombone, violin and chorus; Itai Kriss – flute, campana, guiro; Jimenez – lead vocals and congas; William Ash – baby bass and jacob Plasse plays the tres, a guitar-like instrument originating from the Oriente Province in Cuba.
