April 30th, 2010, 1:27 pm by Greg

The Albany Sonic Arts Collective is presenting the next in its series of adventurous new music concerts at the Upstate Artists Guild in Albany at 8pm on Saturday.

It’s a triple-bill featuring the Ben Miller/Doug Van Nort Duo (on multiphonic guitar and laptop), the Holyoke-based trio Barn Owl (featuring guitarist Chris Cooper, bassist Andy Crespo and percussionist Matt Weston) and Saratoga Springs’ own soundscapers Shape Shifting Shepherds.

Ben Miller was a member of legendary Michigan anti-rock proto-punks Destroy All Monsters, which also featured ex-MC5 bassist Michael Davis and ex-Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton.

There is a $5.00 suggested donation for the performance.
