Fred Lonberg-Holm's Lightbox Orchestra - At The Hideout album FLAC
lightbox orchestra - the drummers. by Fred Lonberg-Holm. supported by. John Cratchley .
Lonberg-Holm stood on a small platform before the stage, lightbox and stack of cardboard signs at the ready. Among the musicians onstage were Kinsella (wearing a Suicidal Tendencies hoodie) front and center on guitar, longtime Joan of Arc’ers Bobby Burg, Theo Katsaounis, Jeremy Boyle, and Victor Villareal, Chicago jazz improvisers Rosaly and bassist Josh Abrams, Zurick, Mattei, and Out Like Lambs’ Robert Ryan on guitar and Andrew Murphy on mandolin, among others. The music began with a 13-person noise blast, before all the lights were switched off except for Rosaly and Abrams, presumably because they were most experienced in the setup, having performed with Lonberg-Holm for years.
