Join us for a beautiful summer edition of the Ampersand series with Peals and Tuxis Giant!

Peals is a collaboration between William Cashion and Bruce Willen, bassists for Future Islands and Double Dagger - two of Baltimore’s most energetic live bands. With Peals, the duo creates intimate instrumental music, shifting inward the energy of their other groups towards immersive and introspective performances.

Tuxis Giant started as the solo recording project of Boston-based songwriter Matt O’Connor. Pairing open-tuned, fingerpicked guitars with hushed, lo-fi production, Tuxis Giant’s debut album is an intimate and engaging listen. Now, joined by bassist Tim Regan and drummer James Steinberg, O’Connor is pushing the project’s sound in newer, louder, and stranger directions.

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

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

Ampersand, a collaborative concert series presented by WMBR & List Visual Arts Center, showcases contemporary music in Bartos Theater on MIT’s campus. Performances blend art and music, and happen every other month. Audience members are encouraged to visit the current exhibitions at the List before experiencing each performance.
