Austin City Hall Pavilion Stage
301 W. Second Street

Join us for an evening of live performative democracy in musical form.
The Lovers
Najeeb Sabour
The Noise Revival Orchestra Experience

Friday’s event will be a live performance and taping of three Austin-based musical acts that have participated in a lyrical and tonal experiment initiated by artists Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere. Sets will include the bands own material along with an arrangement of music to lyrics written by Nevarez & Tevere.

In October, excerpted video documentation of the performances will premiere in the exhibition “The Activist Impulse” curated by Regine Basha at Women and Their Work in Austin. For more information:

Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere are the founders of neuroTransmitter, a collaboration that, since 2001, has fused conceptual practices with transmission, sound production, and mobile broadcast design. The Austin performance evening is part of their continuing investigation of contemporary music, dissent, and public fora.

The Lovers, born from a freaky family of friends deep within the oasis of the Texas Hill Country, are a new, retro-original folk-rock band with a conscience and lotsa love. The band, made up of three singers, electric and acoustic guitars, a lilting flute, imaginative percussion and steady bass, makes for a vibrant, ever changing sound that is both folk and rock and borders on psychedelic.

Najeeb Sabour is a cellist/singer/songwriter from New Orleans that has recently relocated to Austin. He has performed many concerts in the Czech Republic and toured Spain with the Brit pop band, “Capture the Flag”. Now after two years he’s finally back armed with the experiences of different cultures that you’re sure to hear in his unique style of composing and performing.

The Noise Revival Orchestra Experience, a unity of 13, is the latest loose knit line that connects unique styles of chamber music with orchestral compositions like John Corgliano’s, Circus Maximus, and John Mackey’s, Red Line Tango. The Noise Revival Orchestra Experience is currently featured on MTVu Ahead of the Curve and is currently mixing new songs for an upcoming album that builds upon the success of their 5 song E.P. released on USB drive.
