The Return of Slow Boys
(from Michael Lowenstern and earspasm.com)
Saturday, May 10, 2008 — 8pm & 10pm (THIS Saturday!)
at The Stone
(Corner of Ave C and 2nd St, NYC)
Slow Boys was formed by Todd Reynolds and Michael Lowenstern (me) in 1990, in the heyday of Eastern Long Island’s fertile hip-hop music production vanguard. Yep, a hip-hop group it was.
Very (very) soon it mutated into an all-out electronica funk techno house avant classical jazz quartet called Portable Electronic Coffee House. That was a hard band to classify, much less book.
Well, fast-forward nearly 20 years, and during the intervening time as Todd and I followed our separate — but always intersecting — paths, we often talked about getting the band back together.
So, we’re getting the band back together. Now.
This show, in two sets, will feature some of the new work Todd and I have been writing together, including the new commission from Meet the Composer that Todd premiered back in March. It’ll also feature some never-performed duo works from my CD Fade and Todd’s new CD-EP.
8pm set – Mike with Todd; electro funk and jazz
10pm set – Todd with Mike: down-tempo and ambient
The cover is $10 for each set, or $25 for both shows which includes a CD from each of us.
Please come down and check it out! We’d love to see you.
