Archer Spade presents The Spectrum festival next month
Next month, Archer Spade will present its inaugural festival The Spectrum in South Philadelphia. The two days of workshops and performances focused on improvisational music will feature over a dozen musicians and several approaches to performing; Archer Spade’s Dan Blacksberg and Nick Millevoi will be joined by Eric Carbonara, Kyle Press and Ashley Tini, among others.
For five years local musicians Millevoi and Blacksberg have been recording and performing as Archer Spade. They’ve debuted both original and commissioned avant-garde pieces, while expanding the city’s niche of interpretative and improvisational music offerings with specially-curated concerts.
