If you ever wondered what some of the finest indie rock instrumentalists sounded like solo, now you have your chance. Arcade Fire’s violinist, Sarah Neufield, will start her Alone Together Tour this week in Brooklyn and will be joined at different stops along the road by Colin Stetson (of Bon Iver), Billy Martin (of Medeski, Martin & Wood), and Gregory Rogove (Devandra Banhart). If this press releases’ description, “Neufeld will present her unique and vibrant solo violin pieces, Martin will perform his impressive array of spontaneous percussion/drum set compositions, Stetson will perform his spell-binding solo bass saxophone work, and Rogove will play his minimalist, solo piano pieces,” get you in a tizzy, than this might be the show for you.
