Alex Cunningham (Tape Release Show)
Lobster (Kevin Harris and NNN Cook collaboration)
@ The Luminary / 2701 Cherokee Street
8:30 p.m. / $5 (tape and download code included)
Violinist Alex Cunningham has been creeping around St. Louis for three or so years, but in the past eighteen months he has become a scene regular with a singular, caustic style of violin shredding. He tends to burn straight through the strings with rapid bowing and rough plucking in a style that unravels years of classic training in real time. This show is one of two Ghost Ice performances in the next week, but Lobster is the rare collaboration between Kevin Harris and NNN Cook.
