Saintseneca

Columbus-based punk/folk ensemble Saintseneca returns to the Wex to activate one of Jason Moran’s STAGED installations—large-scale reproductions of storied jazz clubs—in this free performance open to the public. Please arrive early: space is limited for this standing-room only show!

One of the many instruments you may hear Saintseneca play—beyond the banjo, baglama, balalaika, bowed banjo, baritone ukulele, bass, and bouzouki—is a stomp box. Basically, it’s a roughly 2 x 2 foot plywood floorboard meant for pounding the beat. With fatalistic, ruminative rambles set to such driving, acoustically powered arrangements, the band’s sets sparkle and surprise. (Performance approx. 30 mins. long).
