Bang On A Can Marathon

Sunday, June 27, 2010

12:00 PM

Bang On A Can notes its marathon as "Lollapalooza advised by the ghost of John Cage". It's a mass of musicians, composers, and listeners collaborating on uninterrupted live ear-bending border-crossing music from around the corner and around the globe. The performace is from noon til midnight (in 2007 it lasted 27 hours and 10 minutes!) and this year, its 23rd year, the World Financial Center Winter Garden plays host.
