Xander Naylor: Highlight House Party NYE webcast

Brooklyn based experimental guitarist and composer Xander Naylor is one of the performers on Highlight House Party live stream on New Year's Eve, "a celebration [that] will welcome hundreds of Vermont-grown performers" He will set up shop in Future Fields in Burlington, with Ethan Snyder (drums) and Pat Markley (bass). Naylor will play music from his albms. as well as some Bill Frisell and even a bit of No Doubt. Thye are on @ 10:45-11:45pm (Eastern Time). The promo-code PXE3 ensures that a measly $10.00 for a ticket is enough to watch it.

His latest album is called Continuum: "A working knowledge of what is going on in the world of avant-garde and world music is helpful. Naylor's use of dissonants, free-flowing chord changes and rhythmic risk taking are a joy for anyone who wants to be surprised and taken down roads that they did not even know were there. Woodwinds, brass and eerie vocals sit next to the "rock" instruments, not as competitors but as true collaborators. He has a vision and he is lucky to have a band that is able to play what he is hearing in his head."
