Tuxedomoon at Festsaal Kreuzberg / Thursday, 10.08.2017
Tuxedomoon is an experimental avant-garde post-punk New Wave group formed in San Francisco, California in 1977 consisting of core members Blaine L. Reininger, Steven Brown and Peter Principle, Luc van Lieshout and video artist Bruce Geduldig.
Pioneers in performance-oriented synthesizer music, Tuxedomoon started out in San Francisco at the very beginning of that city’s punk upsurge. The mercurial aggregate of musicians and artists later relocated to Belgium and became a leading light in the international post-rock avant-garde. Sidestepping the mistakes of many early synthesizer bands, Tuxedomoon leavened their attack with sax and violin and were quick to integrate electronic percussion as a true substitute for real drums.
On July 20, 2004 a reborn Tuxedomoon, released a new studio album, Cabin in the Sky. They continue to work and tour together and have since released Bardo Hotel Soundtrack in 2006, with upcoming projects coinciding with the group’s 30th year anniversary, the Vapour Trails album and the boxed set 7707.
