Hi. Join Little Levity at the WPI Lunchtime Summer Series, Weds, Aug 16 noon to 1. We'll play on the patio behind the Rubin Campus Center (unless it rains, then they'll move us inside the building). Open to the public. No cover. Hope to see you there!
The Glass Man (panel 7), A rock opera about a glass installer pushed to his financial brink who makes a monster of the lifetime of accumulated debris in his glass shop. When the monster is raised, the glass installer sees in the transparent and mirror fragments before him the richness of his life.
Tim Gunderman, John Hannum, Fran Reagan, Lawrence Strauss invite you to an evening of dinner, drinks and rock (opera) at the ground floor of Loft 266/Blue Jeans Bistro, Jan. 20 at 8. There is a in the words of Mad Magazine CHEAP $5 cover.
We'll be playing some selections from Little Levity's rock opera, the Glass Man, and lots of other tunes from the 1940s to today. Special guests, too. You won't want to miss this!
Actually Little Levity was born out of an earlier Worcester, Mass band, Acacia. Tim and Lawrence were founding members of Acacia; Fran played along on occasion.
And, I suppose those symbols are connected to the Led Zep idea (though my symbol was the 1st and originated as a way of signing my paintings ([it's Lawrence writing these words]). Tim's is an Enso, meaning spontanaeity, as he is always in pursuit of being fully invested playing in the moment which is the birthplace of improvisation (the symbol also kind of looks like a G). John's symbol is a nod to the original electric guitar hero. Fran's is an acoustic guitar body and f-hole-derived shape. Mine is my initials turned into a face.
