Sonically speaking, tonight’s performance at the Peabody Institute’s Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall will be about as unconventional as you can find.
Horse Lords, a once-upon-a-time experimental, just-for-fun project that’s since toured Europe and drawn generally rave reviews for its innovative sound, will bring its hypnotic music to the formal stage in Mount Vernon. Its four members will be joined by Now Hear This, an ensemble of students who, from time to time, perform without a conductor and explore modernist and minimalist compositions and everything in between.
A listing says they’ll be playing the late Julius Eastman’s trippy, voluminous classic “Gay Guerrilla” and George Crumb’s impressively complicated “Black Angels” together, and Horse Lords will also be picking some songs from their own bag.
Starts at 7:30 p.m. 17 E. Mount Vernon Place, (667) 208-6620. Click here for tickets (login required), free
