Shardik
This new instrumental trio project from the burning guitarist of Cleric and Simulacrum blends avant-garde classical, free jazz, dissonant math metal, ambient and world music into a powerful new mix. Originally from Philly and now living in Brooklyn, Matt Hollenberg has spent over a year composing these complex and exciting pieces and has chosen two of his oldest musical cohorts to perform them. This bold new take on the power trio will fry your mind!

Queen Elephantine
Formed in 2006 in Hong Kong by Indian musician Indrayudh Shome and currently based in Philadelphia, USA, QUEEN ELEPHANTINE is a nebulous worship of heavy mood and time — a pilgrimage through cosmic sludge.
The shapeshifting post-apocalyptic rock band draws from psychedelia, doom, drone, and noise as well as free jazz and sacred music from around the world.

Julius Masri x Matt Hollenberg
Julius Masri is a Philadelphia based multi instrumentalist, and performer/composer for the city’s dance community at large. His music focuses on improvisatory methods and syncretic / linguistic exchanges within various musical languages including Jazz, Metal, AfroCuban, Experimental Noise, and Arabic music. Born in Tripoli, Lebanon, he moved to the States in 1990 and picked up drumming a year later. He studied with Philadelphia instructors Carl Mottola, Elaine Hoffman-Watts, and as an undergraduate at Bard College, with AACM’s Thurman Barker, Richard Teitelbaum, and Joan Tower. Julius plays drums, circuit modified Casio keyboards, Oud, Kamancheh (aka Rabab, Spike Fiddle), and various other instruments. He currently performs in groups such as grind/crust metal band Night Raids, free jazz groups Sirius Juju and Dromedaries, trombone and synth duo Superlith, and more.
