Upcoming: Many Arms - April 8th

That's right! After two and a half years in the making, Phily/Queens trio MANY ARMS return to Ithaca, NY this Sunday for an all ages romp with locals Phorke and The Invisible Hand (who will be performing a special semi-acoustic set).

What have the MA three been up to since we last left them? Well, they've been some busy beavers to say the least, releasing "Ocean Of Snakes" and "Missing Time" in 2010.

Towards the end of 2011 the fruits of their touring and recording labors paid off with a thumbs up from John Zorn's Tzadik imprint and subsequent release of their latest, a self-titled effort, which just saw the first light of day in March of this fine year of 2012.  The reviews? It's a scorcher! Check out the 13 minute preview track here.

So, get ready for a solid set of loud, aggressive blend of punk and free jazz, tied together with compositions that twist and turn through angular unison melodies and complex rhythmic vamps. Yeah!

Many Arms (Tzadik : Philadelphia/NYC)
