Concert: 7 Door Sedan, Celestial Pincushion, Anteloper


7 Door Sedan (DC) is hook-driven rock and roll with a dash of glam and punk attitude. Harmony and tight guitar interplay bring out the best in songs that have been compared to T-Rex, Television and Big Star. Front man Glenn Kowalski (previously known as Jake Whipp) was a primary member of White Boy, one of Washington DC’s earliest punk bands. White Boy’s first release, “I Could Puke” was called “America’s fastest selling new wave disc” by New Musical Express. White Boy continued with several successful releases including “I Hate,” released on the compilation “30 Seconds Over DC” on Limp, then later re-released by Henry Rollins.

In 2008, Glenn released the album “Killer Good” as 7 Door Sedan. He wrote, recorded, performed and produced almost everything himself. Then after a 20+ year hiatus from the stage, he recruited veteran DC area musicians to go live and further develop the band. The lineup: Glenn on guitar and vocals, Ken Moss (Acrilix) on guitar and vocals, Josh Singer
(Vampyre Bunnies) on bass, and Norman van der Sluys (Madhouse) on drums.

Celestial Pincushion (formerly Cigarbox Planetarium) is Washington DC-based duo Andy Charneco and Deanna Pineda: writers of challenging chord changes, mysterious melodies, harmful harmonies and contorted counterpoints; players of twangy echo guitars, moody organs and pianos; proponents of an old '70s drum machine named Carl Palmer. Seemingly retro elements that combine into a future-looking original instrumental music.

Anteloper (Jamie Branch & Jason Nazary) {NYC}  Anteloper is the electric brain child of Jaimie Branch (fly or die, high life) and Jason Nazary (little women, helado negro, bear in heaven). Branch and Nazary have been playing together as trumpeter and drummer for years, since meeting at the New England Conservatory of Music in 2002, but in this duo both musicians include synthesizers to push further into the spectral space ship ether. With deep rhythmic passages, telepathic improvisations and effortless melodic negotiations, Anteloper pushes forward, swinging it's horns all the while.
