Virtual Balboa – Big Ears Festival 2018
“An explosion of found-sound percussion and free-jazz noise, the trio descended onto a packed house at the Pilot Light that was full of Big Ears ticket-holders, locals and Old City regulars. With one of its members perpetually sprawled on the floor searching for a singular metallic piece to create just the right clang, the visual element of this performance was jarringly awkward yet stunningly engrossing. The fact that the cacophony somehow approached musical transcendence was an even more curious surprise.” –Matt Rankin, Blank Newspaper (www.blanknews.com)
“Hot off their recent engagement at The Clown Motel, VIRTUAL BALBOA is the bringer of pain to your face… Lick the flame of desire and prepare to go LIVE.”
VIRTUAL BALBOA is comprised of three of the most formidable and uncompromising musicians in today’s American underground: guitarist Zach Darrup, bassist Evan Lipson, and percussionist Ben Bennett.
