Coming to the Redfern: Todd Rundgren and ETHEL

From Jackie Hooper, Redfern Arts Center:

Multi-platinum recording artist Todd Rundgren will rock to the tunes of the 1970s with ETHEL, an unconventional post-classical string quartet on Tuesday, October 23, at 7:30 p.m. at the Redfern. The Keene performance is part of a multi-city U.S. “Tell Me Something Good” tour that will reunite these two innovative artists.

“Tell Me Something Good” brings ETHEL and Rundgren together as they draw material and inspiration from the sounds and scenes of the 1970s, the era of funk, glam rock, early minimalism, Watergate, and the Vietnam War. It was a restless, intelligent, dissatisfied decade of contradictions, loss, and discovery that was dubbed “The ‘Me’ Decade.” This vibrant program celebrates the decade that birthed the best known music of rock icon Rundgren, who has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music as a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and, most recently, interactive artist.

Both artists will remain after the performance to answer questions and sign CDs in the lobby. ETHEL and Rundgren also will lead a Creating Rock Arrangements for Strings open workshop on Monday, October 22, at 6 p.m. in the Alumni Recital Hall. The workshop is free and open to the public. Tickets are required to attend the Tuesday night performance, which is sponsored by Markem-Imaje. Tickets range from $35 to $20, and $5 for Keene State students.
