Nick Millevoi: Philadelphia-based guitarist who explores and expands upon the sound of the electric guitar through frequent use of non-traditional tunings, feedback, and raw noise. On his most recent solo-guitar releases, Numbers on the Side (Ivory Antler, 2014) and In White Sky (Flenser Records), Millevoi combines his 6- and 12-string electric guitars with drones and extreme volume to create a startling new work. Nick is a member of the noise-rock-free jazz trio Many Arms, who have two releases on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Nick makes one half of the duo Archer Spade with trombonist Dan Blacksberg, who have performed music by composers Mick Barr, Gene Coleman, Dave Soldier, and Johnny DeBlase, as well as curating a performance series in Phladelphia.

Nick has toured extensively as a solo guitarist as well as with Many Arms, Deveykus (Tzadik), Haitian Rail, Make A Rising, Electric Simcha, and with Gene Coleman's Ensemble N_JP, and has performed across the US, Canada, and Europe and at festivals, such as Incubate (Netherlands), Gaffer Fest (France), Suoni Per Il Popolo (Canada), Montreal Jewish Music Festival, and the New Atlantis Festival (DC), and the Masada Book Three Premiere concert at New York's Town Hall. Nick has collaborated with many great improvisors, including Toshimaru Nakamura, Keir Neuringer, Thomas Buckner, Ken Ueno, Ches Smith, Travis LaPlante, Weasel Walter, Kevin Shea, Joe Lally, Dead Neanderthals, Balazs Pandi, and many others. Nick has releases on many great labels, including Tzadik, New Atlantis, The Flenser, and Public Eyesore.

TRIPPING LANDLOCKED INFIDELS (Kevin Shea, Fritz Welch, Tamio Shiraishi). TLI overtly tarnishes the placated landscape of drab bourgeois-core as lucky- number fever chafes the troubled bank accounts of life's antiheroes... skulls glued into gummy chum bubbles. Superstitious sound symbolically traps the anesthetized trolls of passé aural popularity contests behind erotic parapets until TLI's ugly pantheistic monster vibe scares the children and adults, stuffing a plop of matter-eating bungee sauce all over society's rabid trash hankerings. TLI resuscitates prehistoric yawps from unknown soundable creatures that would squish and eat and kill without remorse. TLI pokes out yer eye and makes you cry because you lie and it's high time to fry.

KEVIN SHEA An innovative and free-minded drummer, Kevin Shea has always imbued his playing with a humor and flexibility that few in the jazz world have been able to match. While perhaps best known for his work with the band Mostly Other People Do The Killing, Shea has played on a host of other projects in the Avant-Garde, Jazz, and other genres, including works by Rhys Chatham, People (with Mary Halvorson), Peter Evans Quartet, Alan Wilkinson, Talibam!, and storm&stress.

FRITZ WELCH Fritz Welch is a drummer, percussionist and vocalist determined to stretch the escalator of possibilities into the bloodshot eye of results. He currently plays with Asparagus Piss Raindrop, FvRTvR, The Final Five, Lambs Gamble and With Lumps. Welch was also a member of Peeesseye, Ki (with Tamio Shiraishi and Michiko) and Wi77!N6. He has played with Liene Rozite, Ilan Volkov, Blood Stereo, Evan Parker, Nicolas Field, Usurper and Tony Conrad among many other killer musicians. A longtime Brooklynite of Texas origins, he is now pleased to be based in Glasgow.

TAMIO SHIRAISHI: Saxophonist and vocalist. A founding member of Fushitsusha, he has performed and recorded as a member of Damenataashi, Ki, Machinegun Tango, Taco, Daikyofuroshiki as well as performing and recording under his own name. He has collaborated with Sean Meehan, Steve Baczkowski, Bill Nace, Jojo Hiroshige, Alan Licht and Keiji Haino among many others.

END RESULT: Southside Chicago experimental/punk band formed in 1979 when the members were still in high school. Many early shows were performed in front of indifferent or hostile "hardcore punk" audiences. Founding members were Alan Jones (guitar, vocals) Ronald Smith (trumpet, vocals) and Steven Smith (bass, guitar, vocals) with Dorian Tajbakhsh soon becoming a core member. In 1985, Steve Albini released a 12" EP on his short-lived Ruthless Records label. End Result appears in the recent feature- length documentary "You Weren't There" which details the early Chicago hardcore scene. The band is still semi-active, with small shows in Chicago once a year or so. This will be their first-ever NYC appearance.
