The Music Gallery presents
Music Gallery At Home – Summer Reruns
Friday June 5, 7PM
Friday August 7, 7PM
Music Gallery At Home rides again with a pair of Facebook “watch parties” in support of Bandcamp Day, wherein the platform will waive their revenue share for all sales to support artists impacted by Covid-19. Kicking off June 5, MGAH Summer Reruns spotlights a couple of our Bandcamp releases which document some peak MG experiences of recent years. At a time we can’t get together in person, here is a chance for us all to relive events which brought people together in unique and unusual ways: Tatsuya Nakatani’s Gong Orchestra (June 2018) and Slowpitchsound’s set from the epic “MG Remixed” season finale in 2016. Both watch parties will feature many of the original artists joining in the commentary with memories of the events and additional thoughts.
We are also very happy to announce the Music Gallery will now bring you a re-watch of some of the most fascinating dialogues put forward at the Music Gallery from past editions of the X Avant Festival!
