Ampersand Concert Series Landing & Dyr Faser

November 17, 2016, 8:00PM

Bartos Theater
20 Ames St. Bldg. E-15-070

Doors open at 7:30 pm. Concert begins at 8 pm.

Connecticut’s Landing have specialized in a mild and rural kind of psychedelia over the course of nearly two decades. They’ve released 9 albums and a slew of singles and EPs on labels including K Records, El Paraiso, Geographic North, These Are Not Records, and Strange Attractors Audio House. “The whipper snappers these days, trafficking in similar sounds, have NOTHING on their sonic elders. Dreamy, droney, poppy, psychedelic, electronic perfection!” - Aquarius Records

Dyr Faser is composed of 3 Boston music veterans: Eric Boomhower, Thalia Zedek, and Kate Murray. “Dyr Faser’s criss-crossing spurts of crushing melody and Suicide-ish iron-clad rhythms are a rare thing to behold… The songs on Trio, one of the best releases of 2016, sound like a single entity giving birth, a moment both magical and at once gone forever. Their sound is anywhere from a New York basement, to a peyote plantation in New Mexico to a sparsely attended knackered bar in Berlin.” - Daz Lawrence, reprobatemagazine.uk

Tickets are available for purhase at the door or in advance online at the link above.

Cost: $3 with MIT ID, $5 General admission.
