KENDRA STEINER EDITIONS  6th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT

part of 2012 Fusebox Festival

presented by Church of the Friendly Ghost

Salvage Vanguard Theater, Austin, TX           29 April 2012

RICK REED (r) and BRENT FARISS (l)

SOUTHWESTERN FREE w/ Jonathan Horne (pictured, on sax and guitar) and Matt Armistead (percussion)

Daniel Hipolito (tapes, electronics), Eva Kelly (guitar, electronics), Bill Shute (poetry)

Ernesto Diaz-Infante, our featured guest artist who came in from San Francisco, did a solo set of material from his EMILIO album

for the final set, Ernesto was joined by Lee Dockery (l, bass) and Lisa Cameron (r, percussion w/ cookie tins) for a beautiful trio exploration, with the audience silent and attentive, on the edge of their chairs…

also a fine visual artist, Daniel Hipolito provided distinctive wall hangings (he’s putting them up here, before the show) that perfectly complemented the music…

L-R  Matt Armistead, Lee Dockery, Jonathan Horne, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, Lisa Cameron, Eva Kelly

Bill Shute and Lisa Cameron, before the show….Lisa has been featured at all three KSE concerts in 2011-2012, and we’d never think of doing one without asking her to be involved!

thanks also to Matt Burnett who did his usual fantastic job w/ sound and visuals and logistics! 

KSE will probably take a break from label/press-sponsored concerts for a while as we put our attention into other projects, but we had a great and responsive crowd at this one and it couldn’t have been better, IMHO…

Justin Boyle of Austin Culture Map did a nice review of the show a few days after…you can read it here:

also, the esteemed new-music/free-jazz writer Clifford Allen was kind enough to provide a nice advance piece on the concert at The Austinist, which also includes reviews of Ernesto Diaz-Infante’s EMILIO album and Alfred 23 Harth/Carl Stone’s GIFT FIG album:

again, thanks to all…and don’t let me forget COTFG’s Henna Chou, who was a pleasure to work with in organizing the evening!
