EAST LANSING, Mich. — The City Of East Lansing’s alternative art and performance space (SCENE) Metrospace will host an evening showcase of music featuring Rochester, MI-based band The Novel Citizen, local post-rock instrumentalists Father Time, and Philadelphia-based experimental jazz artists Altamira.

The Novel Citizen plies a unique, trombone-augmented groove that falls between angular post-rock and funk, recalling The Pop Group on the one hand and Talking Heads on the other. This young band brings energy and chops to original compositions that suggest a midnight meeting between Joy Division and James Brown, steeped in indie-rock history and percolating with interlocking rhythms.

Father Time, a band that cut its teeth at (SCENE) Metrospace over a year ago, returns with a superb EP (the self-released “Married To The Sea”) and another one on the way. With hints of Explosions In The Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor, Father Time’s compositional approach balances intrigue and textural darkness with melodic, chiming guitar lines and saxophone textures.

Altamira, an experimental indie-jazz outfit led by drummer Ricardo Lagomasino, combines “a flurry of touches that reminds me of Denardo Coleman with the impact of late 80's speed metal." (Mike Long, Black Lodge Productions) Lagomasino holds a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. He is currently working with Joe Lally of Fugazi, when not helming Altamira or contributing to the like-minded combo Capillary Action.
