Parties, Polyorchard, Remora 

When: Sun., Nov. 24, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Parties is a band name that comes with a wink: Though most might not associate slowly shifting half-hour hums of guitar sustain and amplifier phosphorescence as much of a soiree, this trio is an improvisational outlet for three musicians with other interests. (Former North Carolina musician Andrew Weathers, for instance, is now a modern composition student at California's vaunted Mills College.) Their amoeboid motion gradually fills whatever space it's given, single notes drifting outward from a steady base to take up residence in corners and cracks. A guitar militia of sorts, Parties suggests ascendance through endless drone, not unlike La Monte Young. Very active, relatively new improvisational collective Polyorchard opens, along with Remora, the ever-evolving guise of Silber Records head and drone/noise/industrial explorer Brian John Mitchell. —Grayson Haver Currin
