Merge Recs Will Mount Bowie/Eno/Glass Tribute Show


Sons of the silent age, rejoice!

By Blurt Staff

It’s to be called “Heroes Tribute: A Celebration of the Music of Philip Glass, David Bowie, and Brian Eno.” And it’s a special concert slated for next Feb. 3 at UNC-Chapel Hill (our Editor’s own alma mater, no less) with the UNC Symphony Orchestra. It’s to mark Philip Glass’ 80th birthday, and the Symphony will do Glass’ adaptation of the Bowie-Eno collaborative LP Heroes, “Symphony No. 4, ‘Heroes’.”

Even better: selected Heroes songs will also be performed by Merge’s Mac McCaughan, Dan Bejar of Destroyer, and Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak. No doubt more members of the Merge stable will be on hand to perform as well.
