Brooklyn Rider + Greg Saunier

Brooklyn Rider

You know, genres are getting really complicated these days. Take the talented foursome Brooklyn Rider, for example: The strings players have most recently been described as post-classical and new classical, since they play traditional chamber instruments in not necessarily traditional ways. Anyway. Regardless of classification, Brooklyn Rider’s music has a depth and engagement that has grown their youthful following over the years, even over-funding their recent kickstarter for The Brooklyn Rider Almanac project. They’ve played MPLS + STPL a few times in recent years, but this time they’re at Aria, and we can’t think of a better place to see these future classics—and opener Greg Saunier from Deerhoof—than Aria? Sunday, 7 PM. $30. —Tracy Oxford
