Cactus Truck

John Dikeman - sax / Ava Mendoza - guitar / Onno Govaert - drums

Amsterdam’s Cactus Truck creates startlingly intense music, not merely in terms of volume or velocity but through complete physical/psychological surrender. One can find hints of delta blues, early free jazz, Japanese noise, and no wave in the music. Cactus Truck will be joined by Brooklyn guitarist Ava Mendoza who was recently named one of Guitar World‘s “10 Female Guitarists You Should Know”

Henry Kaiser Quartet

Steve Parker - trombone / Henry Kaiser - guitar / Damon Smith - double bass / Chris Cogburn - percussion

Guitar innovator and master improviser Henry Kaiser will be joined by some of the finest improvising musicians from Houston and Austin.

Grammy winner Henry Kaiser is widely recognized as one of the most creative and innovative guitarists, improvisers, and producers in the fields of rock, jazz, world, and contemporary experimental musics. The California-based musician is one of the most extensively recorded as well, having appeared on more than 250 different albums and contributed to countless television and film soundtracks. A restless collaborator who constantly seeks the most diverse and personally challenging contexts for his music, Mr. Kaiser not only produces and contributes to a staggering number of recorded projects, he performs frequently throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and Japan, with several regular groupings as well as solo guitar concerts and concerts of freely improvised music with a host of diverse instrumentalists. Mr. Kaiser was, perhaps, the first recording artist to employ digital looping, on his 1978 albums ALOHA and OUTSIDE PLEASURE.
