  • 7:30 PMIn-person! Alash Tuvan Throat-singers
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

    Bowerbird is pleased to present Philadelphia favorites Alash at The Rotunda for a FREE concert. Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing (xöömei), a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. At the same time, they are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage.

  • 8:00 PMIn-person! Bowerbird pres. Ensemble Terrain (Theo Bleckmann, Jodie Landau, Ashley Bathgate, and Jacob Cooper) performing selections from Jacob Cooper’s acclaimed album “Terrain”
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM Bowerbird is pleased to present Ensemble Terrain (Theo Bleckmann, Jodie Landau, Ashley Bathgate, and Jacob Cooper) performing selections from Jacob Cooper’s acclaimed album “Terrain” (Amsterdam Records, 2020).  “Terrain” displays Cooper’s passion for kinetic collaboration. He worked intensively with three poets who created original text for each work, and developed the music alongside vocalists Theo Bleckmann and Jodie Landau, as well as cellist Ashley Bathgate, who each bring electric energy and a penchant for defying musical boundaries to the project.  This concert will feature works from this album, as well as arrangements of works by Meredith Monk, David Lang, Supertramp, and others.ABOUT THE ENSEMBLEEnsemble Terrain was formed as a touring outfit following the release of Cooper’s album “Terrain” (New Amsterdam Records, 2020). Pitchfork characterizes the album as “surprisingly magnetic meditations on time . . . vital and compulsive . . . firmly rooted both in the distant past and music much closer to the present” while San Francisco Classical Voice describes it as “a beautiful way to look at sky when sky is not available.” In their individual careers, GRAMMY-nominated vocalist Theo Bleckmann’s work has been hailed as “from another planet” (New York Times) and “transcendent” (Village Voice), and cellist Ashley Bathgate has been praised as an “eloquent new music interpreter” (New York Times) and “a glorious cellist” (The Washington Post). “Stunning” vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jodie Landau (Pitchfork) is a member of the acclaimed vocal octet Roomful of Teeth, while Jacob Cooper has been lauded as “richly talented” (New York Times) and a “maverick electronic song composer” (New Yorker).

    This is an “in person” event.   In consideration of the ongoing pandemic and the safety of those in our community, Bowerbird is requiring all audience members, staff, and performers to wear a mask while inside the venue (please note that musicians will have the option to perform without masks once on stage).

    Admission is FREE/pay-what-you-can. More info: https://www.bowerbird.org/event/ensemble-terrain/

  • 8:30 PMNEW DATE! Online! Sylvia Platypus Live from ElectricLattéLand!
  • 8:30 PM - 10:00 PM Rescheduled from December 28. Sylvia Platypus Live from ElectricLattéLand!You can catch the livestream here: https://youtu.be/_vG6u91NOiEAbout the band:If Edith Piaf partied with the Yardbirds on a windswept moor, the result might sound something like Sylvia Platypus. Sylvia Platypus is Philadelphia's (and possibly the world's) only psycho-celtic glam-blues band. Take the distinctive vocals and unusual poetic sensibility of Janet Bressler, add the soul-searing lead guitar work of Bill Barone (formerly of the 1970's era German symphonic rock band Wallenstein), the solid rhythmic foundation of Ruchama Bilenky (bass) and Quirky Tom Theurer (drums) and throw in some wailing highland and uilleann piping from Charlie Rutan ("the Eddie Van Halen of bagpipes"*) and you have an original sonic signature that rattles the cage of "genre".This event is FREE but tips are MORE THAN WELCOME for the band. Just Paypal @Sylvia platypus during the performance [or any time, really!].You can catch the livestream here: https://youtu.be/_vG6u91NOiE
