Willard Straight Theatre

Presented by the Cornell Cinema and the Cornell Department of Music
Cornell Cinema and the Cornell Department of Music present an evening of live, improvised rock by Powerdove. The creation of pianist and singer Annie Lewandowski, a lecturer in the Department of Music, Powerdove also features John Dieterich (Deerhoof) on guitars and Thomas Bonvalet (L'ocelle Mare) on banjo, small instruments, body percussion, and electronics. They will perform songs from their new album Do You Burn?, released in the US and Europe in March 2013 (Circle into Square and Murailles/Africantape). In The Wire magazine (UK), Clive Bell called Do You Burn? "an exhilarating album, zinging with empty space and surprises." The band will perform alongside the music videos of Neil Infalvi, Gaby Wolodarski, and Department of Art Professor Michael Ashkin, among others.
