Bang on a Can at the Noguchi: 75 Dollar Bill Long Island City New York

As 75 Dollar Bill, plywood crate percussionist Rick Brown and guitarist Che Chen make electric, richly patterned music that can shape shift from joyful dance tunes to slowly changing trance minimalism – an uncategorizable hybrid which draws on early electric blues, the modal traditions of West Africa, India and the Middle East, Sun Ra’s space chords and the minimalist and No Wave histories of their home town. New album I Was Real coming June 28 on Thin Wrist/Black Editions Group (and tak:til/Glitterbeat Records in Europe).

While Brown and Chen are the core of 75 Dollar Bill, the duo are at the center of an organic extended family of friends and players that often appear with them live and on record. For this event the group will present a special set of material conceived with the unique environs of the Noguchi Museum in mind.
