Almost one year after local guitarist Craig Lieske passed away, and a year and a day removed from the band’s last show, experimental outfit Garbage Island will convene for a commemorative set of ecstatic free-noise. Founding member and former resident Mark Kaczmarek will fly in from France for the occasion, and the supporting acts will offer something special, too. Circulatory System, undercover as Terrarium, will perform a set of improvisational madness. The 19th Brood, a collaboration between Don Chambers and Lukas Cane, will experiment with guitars and tapes. And a revolving selection of local musicians will collaborate on a series of short improvisations. Those who knew Lieske will agree this show would have been exactly his style.
