Winter Season at Entropy

January 7 - The Heavy Users, Cosmic Light Shapes, The Confessions

On January 7, 2017, you can celebrate that you made it through the first week of the new year with The Confessions, Cosmic Light Shapes and The Heavy Users.  The Confessions got their start in the 1980s and have been garage punk warriors ever since. Originally hailing from Mt. Pleasant, they followed in the footsteps of bands like Bark of the Paper Mulberry and watched the Colors perform countless times.  Includes former members of Grout, Urban Farmers, Murrow's Boys, and dog-swing.

 

Cosmic Light Shapes is the brainchild of Detroit musician-around-town Eugene Strobe (The Witches, The Sights, Gore Gore Girls, The Sirens, The Alphabet) who has compiled these songs over many years of early solo works and demos, as well as co-writing some newer songs with drummer Zenas Jackson (You People, Siddhartha, High-Speed Dubbing, Big Pink Black) & advised by spiritual conduit and dog wizard extraordinaire, bass guitarist, Adam James Fuller (the Phantom Cats, The Dead Wings, You People).  Cosmic Light Shapes channel the galactic sonic-sound vibrations from lost extraterrestrial satellites near & far. Imagine an AM radio traveling through outer space powered by a combination of solar flare explosions & 9volt alkaline batteries.

The Heavy Users return to Entropy after a triumphant summer performance.  The Heavy Users play consumer grade Detroit rock for the thinking man and woman.  With Marco Delicato (Rocket 455) on guitar and vocals, Chris Masek on bass and vocals, and Redford's own Erin Pittman on drums.  The Heavy Users will psych you out.

 

February 25 - Rela Percussion and Ben Miller

Entropy returns to its experimental roots on February 25. Detroit-based new music group Rela Percussion is unlike any quartet working in music today. The group is dedicated to exploring the styles and textures of all percussion instruments through the performance of contemporary percussion literature, indigenous music, jazz, electronic and original music. By utilizing the marimba, vibraphone, steel pan, congas, drum set, tabla, and many other instruments in original compositions and standard repertoire, Rela has cultivated a new concept of what it means to be a percussion quartet.  

 

Michigan native Ben Miller has a long and storied career in new and experimental music.  Originally hailing from Ann Arbor, Ben formed Sproton Layer with brothers Roger (Mission of Burma) and Laurence (Larynx Zillions).  Workshoping with Anthony Braxton proved to be a key milestone.  Ben later joined Destroy All Monsters which included chanteuse Niagara, Stooges guitarist Ron Ashton and Michael Davis of the MC5.  Ben is an accomplished composer having studied at several institutions and saxophone lessons with Ari Brown and Ken Vandermark.  More recently, Ben has worked with dancers and in the ensembles of Glen Branca  On this night, Ben performs on saxophone and tapes.
