Bang On A Can Marathon

Steve Smith reviews what sounds like a wonderful event in honour of new music organisation Bang on a Can’s twenty-fifth anniversary season:

That breadth seemed even more impressive, given that this year’s marathon, the final New York event of Bang on a Can’s 25th-anniversary season, felt less rangy than its immediate predecessors. Art-rock bands, electronica auteurs, Kyrgyz jaw harp players and most of the artists associated with the New Amsterdam record label were in short supply. What I saw and what could be extrapolated from the remaining program had something of a friends-and-family air.
