Critic’s Pick – Matta Gawa

Matta Gawa

By Kyle Melton

For those looking to challenge their musical boundaries this weekend, DC duo Matta Gawa will provide an exceptional opportunity. With their self-described “cinematic chunks of post-hardcore improvised sound”, Matta Gawa takes cues from free jazz icons such as Sonny Sharrock and Ornette Coleman, as well as from the storied DC hardcore scene. The duo explore extreme dynamics, twisting traditional musical elements with brazen defiance. Their most recent album, bA, finds guitarist Edward Ricart and drummer Sam Lohman melding the boundaries of jazz, rock, and electronic music, creating a sonic landscape certain to provide a rich experience for those willing to take the trip to the fringe. Matta Gawa will perform on Friday, February 25 at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. Fifth St. Also on the bill are Kuan, Human Reunion, and Grenades?! Doors at 9 pm. Admission is $5 for 21 & up.
