The Red Krayola's music is complex and restless, mixing modes and addressing where entertainment meets theory — formal, political, social, existential, etc. They trade, in their words, in “genre […] festooned with emergency conditionals. ‘It’s a pop song, just in case it might be an avant-garde performance’; ‘It’s a contribution to a conversation, just in case it’s rock ’n’ roll.’” Their Biennial project includes an index of more than four hundred entries covering their diverse membership, affiliations, and concerns. With their cohorts, "The Familiar Ugly," the band will perform an evening comprising new songs, old songs, and free-form freakouts.
