Electric Junkyard Gamelan will light up Roxbury venue

Prepare for a night of music that is as visually stimulating as it is melodic, funky, rocking and guaranteed to keep you grooving in the aisles. On Saturday, July 26 at 8 p.m. The Electric Junkyard Gamelan comes to The Roxbury Arts Group.
The group plays original groove driven music played on self-invented instruments fashioned from coat hangers and rubber bands, bed frames, old farm equipment, turntable platters, clay pots, saw blades and truck springs. Its four musicians play haunting modal melodies that float over funky bass lines and layers of danceable interlocking rhythms.
