Studio 34’s ever-expanding Sunday Music Series sallies forth to include a bit more movement into the mix with a duo of duos on April 30th.

Formed in North Jersey in 2004, The Early span two decades, two coastlines, and an evolving lineup of multi-instrumentalists. In its current Philadelphia iteration (Alex Lewis on guitar/synths and Jake Nussbaum on drums/electronics) the two-piece metabolizes the textural grandeur of post-rock, the communicational intimacy of jazz improvisation, and the patient grooves of minimalism, refining a decades-long extrasensory correspondence. Hear more from The Early here.

The duo of Christina Gesualdi and Jesse Kudler explores the inter-dependence of movement and sound, with the boundaries between dancer and accompanist deliberately troubled; hierarchies between audio and visual constantly shift as byproducts of either medium become examined or picked up for elaboration in the other. The duo has been performing in art galleries, dance spaces, and concert venues since 2018.

Lounge opens at 8:00pm, music starts at 8:30pm. Suggested donation $10–$20 at the door, no one turned away. Complimentary tea on tap.
