Brooklyn, NY: Roulette, celebrating 35 years of new and adventurous performance, is excited to present an evening with Mary Halvorson & Brandon Seabrook. The meeting these two guitarists is an intense and high-energy affair filled with noise and beautiful melodies, tech-metallic squealching converging with post mettaloid Gretsch shredding and a flurry of post plectrum electric exactitude.

Guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson has been called "NYC's least-predictable improviser" (Howard Mandel, City Arts), "the most forward-thinking guitarist working right now" (Lars Gotrich, NPR.org) and "one of today's most formidable bandleaders" (Francis Davis, Village Voice). In addition to her longstanding trio, featuring bassist John Hébert and drummer Ches Smith, and her quintet and septet, Ms. Halvorson also co-leads a chamber-jazz duo with violist Jessica Pavone, the avant-rock band People and the collective ensembles Thumbscrew, Reverse Blue and Secret Keeper.

Guitarist/Banjoist Brandon Seabrook was named him "NYC's Best Guitarist of 2012" by the Village Voice and he has been profiled in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fret Board Journal, NPR, and the UK music journal Wire. The New York Times called him "...a man apparently hellbent on earning the title of World's Least Rustic Banjo Player". His group's two self-titled albums, Seabrook Power Plant I (2009) and Seabrook Power Plant II (2011), were released on Brooklyn's Loyal Label. Time Out NY called their debut album "not only one of the most baffling experimental releases of the year, it's also one of the best.
