Plume Giant (Brooklyn) & Poor Rich Boy (Pakistan)
Wednesday, June 11, 2014 | 7:00 pm
The members of Plume Giant describe their sound as “orchestral music in dream-pop clothes.” With backgrounds in baroque opera, music theory, and midwest vernacular, these three musicians play fifteen instruments between them.
Poor Rich Boy, the Pakistani sonic counterparts of Brooklyn’s Plume Giant, are known for their “energetic and pulsating live performances” (Pakistan Express Tribune). Poor Rich Boy appears at Music in the Gardens courtesy of Center Stage, a groundbreaking cultural diplomacy initiative that connects foreign artists with American communities through the performing arts.
**Music in the Gardens presentations are excluded from Pick-4 & Age-30-&-Under discounts.**
The presentation of Poor Rich Boy is part of Center Stage, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, produced by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with additional support from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation & the Asian Cultural Council.
