DEFEAT! A performance by Academy Records

DEFEAT!

THUS THE MAGPIE, RIDER OF LEVIATHAN, HERALD OF SATURN — THE 9 CHOIRS
ACADEMY RECORDS
SATURDAY OCTOBER 8TH, DUSK

Riding Yggdrasil to bring down Leviathan and with only the Magpies standing in the way to dampen the blow and keep us from lowering Saturn’s gallows via Archimedean Screw, Academy Records brings it all together on October 8 at Grin. Performed for the first time since 2006, Academy Records brings together nine rock and roll drummers in an encore performance of Defeat! Thus the Magpie, Rider of Leviathan, Herald of Saturn – The 9 Choirs.  Originally performed at Chicago’s historic Hyde Park Art Center as part of a larger body of work entitled Le Conqueroo, the piece features a percussion performance, running 45 minutes.

Bring earplugs, you’ll need ‘em. 

Featuring Anthony Elms, Alexander Garzone, Alex Hamrick, Carl Hasse, Seth Manchester, Kyle Stump, James Toomey, Eddie Villanueva, and Chris Vorhees.
