Concert: Alexander/Zof-E iDk/Austin Vaughn/Moses & Ogg Duo


Alexander (CT) -
Alexander is the solo guitar music made by New Haven, CT native David Shapiro. Drawing from a wide range of guitar traditions, Alexander live sets vary from fingerstyle acoustic guitar music to psychedelic feedback-oriented improvised electric guitar excursions. Equally influenced by the melodic stylings of Robbie Basho and John Fahey, the guitar-damage of Alvarius B, and the avant garde blues of hometown hero Loren Connors, Alexander offers a unique synthesis of guitar vocabulary imbued with a deep emotionality.

Austin Vaughn (NY) -
Austin Vaughn is a New York-based drummer and percussionist. He performs solo music for drumset as acoustic celebration: an exploration of overtones, sympathetic vibration, and interference beating. He studied music at Oberlin Conservatory, learning old-fashioned and new-fangled stylings with Billy Hart, Mike Rosen, Paul Samuels and Jamey Haddad. Ongoing projects include Here We Go Magic, Sam Evian, Luke Temple, Ashcan Orchestra, Ron Shalom, Luke Temple, and Will Mason’s Happy Place.
