Miracles of Modern Science w/ 808 MPH
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Doors 8pm / Show 9pm
FREE UCSD students / $10.00 general

Miracles of Modern Science are an unlikely rock band. Using just mandolin, violin, cello, standup bass, and drums, they create explosive pop that upends notions of what these instruments can do.

MOMS debut album Dog Year finds the band pushing the limits of their antique instruments and throwing aside conventions as readily as their genre-bending idols, Bowie and Bartok. Youll hear unhinged baritone vocals anchored by a looming upright bass, mandolin riffs that share more DNA with post-rock than bluegrass, and a two-man string section shredding as ferociously as the rock drummer behind them. The result is as daring as it is infectious.

FREE for UCSD Graduate and Undergraduate Students!

Hailed by All About Jazz as a giant in the making, guitar prodigy Julian Lage grew up in California and was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary, Jules at Eight. He gained pivotal early exposure as a protg of legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton, recording and touring with Burton on two projects. With his first recording, Sounding Point, Lage arrived at a unique approach to composition and ensemble craft, developing a searching yet accessible sound that earned him his 2009 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.
