Spring Revolution – L’Rain with Nancy Feast

Friday, March 2, 2018
at 7:00 PM

National Sawdust
80 North 6th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11249


Event Information

L’Rain is part of the Spring Revolution festival, National Sawdust’s annual two week festival celebrating the musical revolution created by Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Held from March 1st through March 11th, this year Spring Revolution celebrates the voice of women, with every night featuring female curators, artists and composers because the female perspective is the human perspective and the human perspective should be inclusive.

L’Rain, hailed by the New York Times as a “one-woman studio band” and by Tiny Mix Tape as “the best moments of Stereolab or Frank Ocean’s ‘Endless,’” performs a set of spiritual music exploring the complexity of grief and the audacity of joy.

Lead by composer and multi-instrumentalist Taja Cheek, L’Rain puts on a special performance as a quartet, with Ben Katz on saxophone + keyboards, Devin Starks on bass, and Buz Donald on drums + electronics.
