The outstanding, open minded, and forward thinking curators of the Glass Museum give you a reason for one of those imperative New England road trips you’ll be taking this summer. Each spring in Peterborough, N.H., they organize one of the best music festivals in New England each and every year, an event called THE THING IN SPRING. It brings together a decidedly epic swath of experimental, straight entertaining, and thoroughly thought-provoking performers from all over New England and well beyond. A phenomenally amazing duo of drummer archangel/ phantom Chris Corsano and guitar mugger/melter Bill Orcutt? The otherworldly folk rock tidings of Sub Pop’s now Icelandic based Death Vessel? The joy dousing circuitous-rock of Bostonian that makes up Bad History Month? Most experimental folk half-brought to you by mighty New England sound artist & outsider folkster Dredd Foole (the other strange half of this duo is brought to you by another stellar Boston underground sound alum, Ed Yazijian)? They will all be on hand, and there will be many more beyond that, at this wondrous multi-day collection of performances, art fairs, and otherwise.
The Weekends performers also include MV & EE, PILE, MAJOR STARS, PAPER CASTLES, and many many more. Find the
full schedule here.
