LIVE STREAM - Bill Crandall (from Modest Proposal)
Add to Calendar
The Modest Proposal show was postponed until June 12, but guitarist Bill Crandall can't wait that long. Tune in for a solo acoustic set from MP's co-founder.
In his recent solo career, the DC music veteran (also ex-Dot Dash, Adam West) has developed an atmospheric and intriguing mix of indie, folk, psychedelia, pop, and rock.
Under the artist moniker Mistochord, Crandall’s 2016 solo debut album was the innovative music-photography hybrid New World Voyage. A sonic experience with a tapestry of electronic layers surrounding guitar and plaintive melodies, the “concept album” imagines the first humans to leave Earth forever for hostile, barren Mars - an implicit challenge to safeguard our home planet. A live-score projection and performance of the work capped the 2016 FotoweekDC festival closing party.
His in-progress followup, under his own name with the working title The Forest and the Trees, is a stripped-down, climate-themed suite of future-folk songs he calls ‘meanwhile back on Earth’ - humans navigating a changing world with love and solidarity.
Crandall will be live-streaming as a popup show from his Takoma Park garage (open to the street for passers-by to keep safe social distancing).
