Celebrating the release of Electric Bird Noise's new record: Live at the Basement, Electric Bird Noise invites you to be a part of the final recording by bringing a musical instrument or noisemaker to Fresh Brewed Coffee House on Saturday, June 9th.
Since 1997, Brian Lea McKenzie's Electric Bird Noise has been primarily driven by McKenzie’s guitar. Doing everything from darkwave to ambient noise with a backing band made up of lights and a ton of smoke and sometimes a loop pedal or a drum machine, Electric Bird Noise solidifies a spot as one of the south’s favorite post rock party one man acts.
In late 2009, McKenzie felt his live shows were getting less fulfilling as a performer, and he decided to do a series of concerts featuring local friends and family at a Myrtle Beach bar. With various themes in mind like an army of acoustic guitars or a choir of voices or asking several local experimental bands to perform simultaneously, the result of these orchestrated improvisations is the new record: Live at The Basement.
Bring anything that makes noise, pots and pans, or an acoustic instrument (but bring amplification if it's electric). Using your instrument or noisemaker, you'll be assigned a note and a strict rhythm. So, you contribute by playing one note and one rhythm for at least 15 minutes, and Electric Bird Noise is going to record it.
