Local Motion: The Art School Boys / Instrumental Quarter

8 p.m. Tuesday, November 14. Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center (3301 Lemp Avenue).


Tony Renner's known for his many groups — shoegazing noiseniks Ne Plus Ultra (, Tiger Mountain and now the Art School Boys. With abstract acoustic picking and hints of free jazz and psych-folk humming alongside richly textured percussion, Renner's new group should satisfy those who like their music to be soothing and experimental. Listen to 'em at Italy's ambient keyboard gurus Instrumental Quarter, whose latest release is called Traffic Jam, also play.
