Knife Thrower's Assistance, Killer Killy Dwyer, The Knells to Play The Cutting Room, 2/7
Knife Thrower's Assistance is set for the Cutting Room, Friday, February 7th, doors at 9:30pm Show at 10pm. Tickets: $15 Advanced $20 Day of the show. The Cutting Room is located at 44 East 32nd Street.
Knife Thrower's Assistance is an experiment in merging creative forces. A project which began by combining the folk rock work of songstress Eve Blackwater and the experimental chamber folk songs of Heidi Harris. They pooledtogether musicians of different backgrounds to create a collective which would bring the music to new and dynamic platforms, creating an experience where the Assistant becomes the Thrower and the Thrower becomes the Assistant.
The group continued to expand its genre by including the powerful and bluesy voice of Deb Zep, a touch of Broadway with Wicked's own bass player Kevin Anderson and drummer Matthew Vander Ende, classical cello lines from Elizabeth Glushko, haunting opera lines from singer Bridget Rooney, Americana banjo licks from Christen Napier, and more to come...
Knife Thrower's Assistance will perform 3 full group shows in NYC. The grand finale show will be held at The Cutting Room NYC 2/7/14 @10pm. This is all a unique experience that will only be around for a short time (although there have been whispers that this group may stick around for longer, but that's another story.) A live album of the works performed will be released soon after the project run.
