Boston Globe Quick Pick: BRUXISM and ALLAN CHASE/BRUNO RÅBERG DUO
By Max Pearl, May 2, 2008
The Greater Boston art gallery scene has a bit of a stagnant reputation, due in part to stuffy Newbury Street spots haunted by old, wealthy art patrons sipping little plastic cups of chardonnay. But there are pockets of life out there for a younger, more restless crowd.
Along with showing paintings, photography, sculpture, and sound art, Brookline's Gasp Gallery books touring musicians and talented Berklee kids for live music - from head-bobbing dance tracks to electroacoustic soundscapes - that draws a sizable crowd. Not only that, Gasp is only one block from the "D" train's Brookline Hills stop on the Green Line.
Tonight, Bruxism, a duo that makes use of experimental voice-work, woodwinds, and various electronics, plays alongside far-out free jazz duo Allan Chase and Bruno Raberg. All ages. Doors at 8 p.m. $10 suggested donation, $6 for students. 362-4 Boylston St., Brookline. 617-418-4308.
