2024-2025 Season Kick-Off Party with TEKE::TEKE and Special Guests at the Foundry Theater

2024-2025 Season Kick-Off Party with TEKE::TEKE and special guests

Join us to celebrate the launch of SEASON TWO at the Foundry Theater.  This multi-band program will be headlined by the Montreal-based Japanese psych-rock band TEKE::TEKE.   Featuring traditional Japanese instruments, flute and trombone alongside raging guitars and a pulsing rhythm section, TEKE::TEKE creates a sound reminiscent of 1960’s and 70’s era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks, with an experimental approach and a frenetic, modern twist.

Psychedelic rock group TEKE::TEKE are intimately familiar with duality, of splitting reality between past and present, complex melodies and hushed interludes, intense action and lingering response. After building their sound through careful assembly of countless splinters of Japanese folk, psychedelia, Brazilian surf rock, and other far-flung touchstones, the Montreal-based seven-piece indulged in and learned from stretching out in free-floating experimentation on the road. Now releasing their sophomore album, Hagata (due June 9th via Kill Rock Stars), TEKE::TEKE move fully in the space between, embracing the power of mythic pairings and identities lived at once. Matching muscly intensity with moments of cloudy meditation—like a world-class high jumper finding bliss at the apex of their leap—the group frame expressive compositions with regal flute, rich horns, ecstatic guitar, and a thumping rhythm section.

Also on the billing for this day of music and celebration are local talents Everybody Eats, Gran Gran and Kid Bigfoot. More info to follow.

Support for this project was provided by the Great Lakes Colleges Association through its Global Crossroads Initiative, made possible by a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
