Victoire
Victoire
VICTOIRE is a family of musical misfits living in New York City, helmed by composer/keyboardist Missy Mazzoli. This “all-star, all-female band” (Time Out New York) of strings, keyboards, clarinets and electronics performs Mazzoli’s hypnotic blend of dreamy chamber pop, minimalism and rich romanticism. Their debut album Cathedral City, released in 2010 on New Amsterdam Records, envelopes the listener in a tapestry of classical influences, distorted guitars, multi-layered vocals, vintage keyboard sounds and stuttering samples. Cathedral City was named one of 2010′s best classical albums by the New York Times, Time Out New York, the New Yorker and NPR, and Pitchfork praised the group for “condensing moments of focused beauty and quiet conviction from the pandemic distractions of modern life.“ In the past two years Victoire has performed all over the US at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Chicago’s Millennium Park, Le Poisson Rouge, Joe’s Pub, Roulette, the Whitney Museum, and the Bang on a Can Marathon. In 2011 they embarked on their first European tour with The National, Efterklang and Owen Pallett, and returned to Europe last Fall for a tour of Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands with My Brightest Diamond. They also recently performed in Sweden as part of the 2012 M.A.D.E. Festival and at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) as part of the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Festival, curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner of The National. Victoire is Missy Mazzoli (compositions, keyboards), Mellissa Hughes and Caroline Shaw (voice), Olivia De Prato (violin), Eileen Mack (clarinet), Lorna Krier (keyboards), and Eleonore Oppenheim (double bass).

Wild Up
Wild Up
Wild Up is an experimental classical band comprised of young professionals from the Los Angeles area, brought together around the collective understanding that the "Art Music" concert experience could do with a serious overhaul, and that above all else: quality breeds joy.

For our March 19th program at the Bootleg Theatre - we've asked a bunch of our friends to come make music. There will be antiphonal aerosol cans, Avant post-rock, voices, the award winning young violinist, Nigel Armstrong playing Ravel's gypsy masterpiece "Tzigane", and a piece about math and cows. We're calling it: le boeuf .

Expect something wonderful and something unexpected.
