Live Music


When: Fri., Dec. 26, 8 p.m. 2014

Numerous talented musicians have made their mark on the local scene with their respective bands and styles, but tonight's Bandemonium! show is a chance to see those artists shake up their routines. Earlier in the month, Diabolical Records created 19 new "bands" by drawing names of local musicians out of a hat and grouping them together. Since then, the bands have had two weeks to practice and come up with new material (be it music, improv or whatever other creative something they invented), and tonight, they'll each debut their work and band name in 10- to 15-minute performances. Bandemonium is an experiment designed to bring together musicians who might not normally work together, as well as facilitate collaboration and creativity. The event should be full of surprises.
