An Evening with Philip Glass & Joanna Newsom

Minimalist composer Philip Glass will team up with Joanna Newsom and violinist Tim Fain for a collaborative performance set to take place on June 25 at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA. The performance, a benefit to cover a large upgrade to Big Sur, CA’s Henry Miller Memorial Library, comes as part of Glass’ Days and Nights Festival. Musical selections will feature solo performances by the musicians as well as new collaborations.

The performance is co-presented by local area promoter ((folkYEAH!)), who also co-present The Mother Hips annual Hipnic Festival as well as the Woodsist Festival at the Henry Miller Library.

The Henry Miller Library opened in 1981 and is currently seeking funding to meet federally-mandated health and safety requirements.

I’ve met many Glass-haters. 99% are complete assholes

I love almost all kinds of music, and my appreciation is usually emotional. Philip Glass’ music is very annoying — repetitive and anxiety provoking. I used to find his works fascinating, but I no longer listen.

Yeah, I was driven to googling ‘Philip Glass is annoying’ by trying to listen to “The Poet Acts” on Spotify today. Surprising number of hits. Glad I’m not alone and if we’re “assholes” then we’re my kind of assholes. I wanted to scream “stop repeting that inane riff!”
