Concert, Performance


Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


8:00 p.m.


As part of a cross-Canada tour, Nihilist Spasm Band performed two sets in the Grand Luxe Hall. Their improvised jam session was a blend of homemade whimsy, interactive-improvised artistry, and jury-rigged instruments. The performers were John Boyle (kazo/kalimba/percussion), John Clement (bass/guitar/percussion), Bill Exley (vocals), Murray Favro (guitar), Tim Glasgow (guitar/percussion), Aya Ohnishi (kazoo/percussion), and Art Pratten (“pratt-a-various”/water pipe).

Presented in conjunction with LIVE Biennale.

Video documentation available upon request.
