Thor and Friends are an Austin-based band whose core members are Peggy Ghorbani, Sarah “Goat” Gautier, and Thor Harriss who's probably best for playing percussion on Devendra Banhart’s 2004 record Nino Rojoand and also serving as the percussionist for NYC no wave band Swans from 2010-2016.
Harriss and pals opened for Explosions In The Sky back in April and played about an hour of carefully crafted experimental music that utilized a mass of instruments including violin, cello, glockenspiel, vibraphone, theremin and clarinet.
The sound they create is rich and textured, and while they’re definitely weird as fuck, if you dig avant-garde tunes, this definitely is a show you want to see. Thursday, July 13, $10, 7pm, Period Modern, 347 McCullough Ave, (210) 902-1217, periodmodern.com
