The exciting new band Electric Beethoven makes their way throughout the East Coast in the latter part of 2016, kicking things off with an exciting set this weekend at Catskill Chill. With only a few live shows under their belt, not to mention the complex task of turning the music of Beethoven into live, improvised dance music, the band has announced a free show in the Bay Area tonight.
In an announcement, bandleader Reed Mathis says:
If you’re in the Bay Area, you’re invited to join us — for FREE!! — at an open rehearsal tonight in the East Bay. Make your way to the Ivy Room (minutes from Berkeley), by 8pm and watch as we lift the kimono and show you the process behind loading two complete Beethoven symphonies with improvisational CDM (“classical dance music”) jams. After this, we load up the Ludwig Van and head east for our maiden journey… come wish us Bon Voyage!
