Here Be Monsters w/ Invoke, Montopolis, Kraken Quartet, Density512, Golden Hornet, LOLA, One Ounce Opera, Convergence, Goliath Was Bigfoot, Tom Echols, Less Than <10 Music, Nathan Felix, VAMP, Studio A, Tetractys New Music

While several of its 15 featured artists sound like they’d be brash metal bands by name (Invoke, Convergence, VAMP), Here Be Monsters promises a mammoth showcase of Austin’s indie classical exports, hosted by contemporary sound highlighters Tetractys New Music. A deep appreciation for the Lone Star State is a common thread; alongside chamber collective Montopolis’ subtle twang and Golden Hornet’s Western big band stylings, they’ve both released projects dedicated to Texas nature (not to mention composer Nathan Felix’s rumbling piano ode to the state’s skies). Here, at a five-hour KMFA 89.5-sponsored patio display, be the monsters that lurk in the background of Austin’s music scene, quietly crafting visceral arrangements. – Laiken Neumann
