Blonde Redhead performs closing night of the Third Annual Celebrity Series Stave Sessions on Saturday, March 25th. Formed by Japanese lead singer and guitarist Kazu Makino and Italian twin brothers Amedeo (guitar/vocals) and Simone Pace (drums), Blonde Redhead have built their decades-long career as a driving creative force on the indie music scene. They will perform their seminal 2004 album Misery is a Butterfly in its entirety featuring ACME: American Contemporary Music Ensemble. NPR called ACME “contemporary music dynamos,” and The New York Times described their performances as “vital,” “brilliant,” and “electrifying.” Read more about the band here: http://www.blonde-redhead.com/barragan/
The Celebrity Series Stave Sessions is 5 nights of cross-pollinated music by brilliant contemporary musicians, with little use for labels or rules. Stave Sessions highlight contemporary musicians often early in their careers who take diverse approaches to their music, integrating musical training and non-conforming styles to deliver performances that defy standard labels. Shows take place at 160 Mass Ave., a unique and intimate venue located on the Berklee College of Music campus where floor-to-ceiling windows offer concertgoers an urban backdrop with views of the city and an upscale, cabaret vibe.
