Charlottesville Bike Ensemble Supports Petrol-Free Gypsy Carnival Tour

GFX coordinated the second installment of the Charlottesville Bike Ensemble performance at Random Row Books on May 13, 2010. This performance supported the Petrol-Free Gypsy Carnival Tour, “a bicycle-powered music and art tour to promote peace, social justice, and a healthy planet. On the tour, musicians carry only the essential instruments from city to city on their bicycles.” Part of our set is recorded as a part of the documentary video of the entire Petrol-Free tour.

After our Matmos-inspired beat-oriented bike noise set, we sang and dance with everyone involved in the tour. It was a beautiful night. We’re happy and honored to have participated in this collective experience.
