One of Sockets first releases happens to be the uncompromising Little Women from Brooklyn. They'll be returning to DC this Saturday, December 3rd to perform at Goldleaf (443 Eye St. NW DC).
Here's all the info you'll need:
Little Women (Brooklyn Extreme Jazz Quartet, AUM Fidelity, Features rising star alto saxophonist Darius Jones)
Brooklyn quartet Little Women create music that blurs the line between structure and spontaneity. The group’s sound distilled from a broad range of influences that stretch from classic Chicago free jazz thru pop music, punk rock, math metal, and harsh noise. Little Women never stop pushing into new sonic territory: splitting overtones to create ghost notes, violently disassembling their instruments onstage, and attacking written and improvised material with equal ferocity.
Featuring an opening set from:
SCUO (Scott Clark and Scott Burton duo, Guitar and drums from Richmond, VA, Glows in the Dark)
The "Scott duo" of Scott Clark (drums) and Scott Burton (guitar) have said that they challenge themselves to write music that's simply too difficult for them to play. The effect is intriguingly precise, robotic and proggy.
