Asphalt Orchestra is a radical new street band that brings ambitious processional music to the mobile masses. Created by the founders of the “relentlessly inventive” new music presenter Bang on a Can (New York Magazine), Asphalt Orchestra unleashes innovative music from concert halls, rock clubs, and jazz basements and takes it to the streets and beyond.
For this afternoon performance Asphalt Orchestra continues its West Coast debut, morphing into an outdoor flash force, springing jazz, prog-rock, and world music on the urban assemblage in Downtown Los Angeles.
Asphalt Orchestra will kick off the Valley Performing Arts Center 2012-13 season with an energetic performance of the stage show Unpack the Elephant on September 13. Visit ValleyPerformingArtsCenter.org for more information.
