[Preview: NXNE, Man Forever shows]

Tune in tonight to The Upstate Soundscape to hear a preview of Toronto’s North by Northeast festival and some of the artists that will be performing there this week.

While NXNE has always catered more to the indie crowd, there are plenty of challenging experimental artists slated to perform at this year’s festival. Tune in to find out who they are, what they sound like, and when they’ll be performing.

We’ll also take a listen to Man Forever, who will be rolling through Upstate for shows in Toronto (6/14), Buffalo (6/15),  Rochester (6/18), and Binghamton (6/20), and Hudson (6/24).

Show starts at 9pm on 91.3FM WBNY. Stream at WBNY.org.


[Visually Sound Sunday: Being Man Forever]

Man Forever, the solo project of Oneida drummer John Colpitts aka Kid Million, will stage a performance in Buffalo this Friday at the Polish Library.

This will not be a run-of-the-mill show, but rather a sound experience achieved through a collaborative drum performance.  Check the video of Colpitts explaining the concept and giving a run down of what to expect.

Also performing Friday night are Bone Vapor, Bear Flames and All of them Witches.
