It’s been exciting lately for Glacier—we’ve started a weekly residency at the coolest new venue in town, the Dragonfly Lounge.
Every Wednesday, Glacier curates a night of spontaneous composition, featuring some of the Madison area’s finest improvisors.
TONIGHT, Feb 29th, will feature a quartet of Luke Polipnick, guitar and Ben Willis, bass, w/ special guests Kyle Traska, drums, and Pat Reinholz, electric cello.
This happens every Wednesday! We’ve got some really exciting stuff planned, including a Klezmer/free freakout featuring members on Yid Vicious on March 20th.
We played the Ratchet Series at the Skylark in Chicago this Monday.
We’re playing Dec. 16th at Audio for the Arts in Madison with Chicago’s Friction Brothers.
Last week we played at a new place in Madison, Redamte. The place is great—local food, great coffee, and supportive of the local Musickers.
We have some stuff that we’re really excited coming up in Madison:
TOMORROW, Sept. 16th, we’re opening for A Hawk and a Hacksaw at the Sett in the new Union South on the UW campus. 9pm
Saturday, Oct. 8th, we’ll be playing at the Frequency, opening for Todd Clouser’s A Love Electric
Saturday, Oct. 22nd, we’re sharing a bill with the awesome Arp of the Covenant at Buraka on State St. 9pm.
See you there!
We have the rough mixes from the recordings we made at Audio for the Arts last month, and they’re pretty exciting. (HOT VENOM) They will be available in the near future as an album. Before that, though, here’s a recording from a living room session:
