The Wild Detectives says
We are delighted to announce that Bill Nace (1/2 of Body/Head) and Jake Meginsky will stop at The Wild Detectives to perform their solo shows as part of their joint American tour.

Bill Nace is an artist and musician based in Western Massachusetts. He has collaborated with an extraordinary range of musicians, including, Joe McPhee, Thurston Moore, Jake Meginsky, or Kim Gordon -among others- with whom he regularly plays as one half of the duo Body/Head. Their critically acclaimed LP “Coming Apart” was released on Matador Records. He has been a featured musician in festivals such as ATP (curated by Jim Jarmusch and held in Monticello, NY), and has performed in a wide variety of venues, running the gamut from the Musee d’Art Contemporain (Strasbourg, France) to The Stone (NYC) to Bennington College (Vermont). Nace’s range has been described as “veering from sculptural, almost Remko-Scha-esque chime to Loren Connors-style elegance in only a few short moves.” (Mimaroglu Music, 2010). He runs his own label Open Mouth.

Electronic musician Jake Meginsky has collaborated and performed with such artists as Milford Graves, Thurston Moore, Body/Head, Bill Nace, and John Truscinski -among others. HUCK magazine describes his work as “constantly transgressing the boundaries between acoustic and electronic, analog and digital” and continues, “….invention is at the heart of Jake’s work even before he strikes a note.” Volcanic Tongue recently called Meginsky’s 2014 solo record, L’appel Du Vide,“a hallucinatory electro percussion masterpiece.” His sound
installations have been shown internationally including CONTEXT Art Miami, the Duolun Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai, Usdan Gallery @ Bennington College, the Beijing Today Museum, and the Jinse Gallery in Chongqing.

Courtney Marie and Lauren Belmore will join them with a Poetry and Music performance.
