Sarah Lipstate & Lee Ranaldo / Seven Teares / Kyle Bobby Dunn

Friday, March 11, 2011. 8:00 pm

Sarah Lipstate is a Brooklyn-based guitarist and filmmaker. She currently records and performs under the name Noveller. Handling the electric guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it’s housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer. She released her first two full-length albums on Brooklyn noise label No Fun Productions in 2009. Noveller’s latest full-length, ‘Desert Fires’, came out via Lipstate’s own imprint, Saffron Recordings, in July of 2010. Saffron Recordings also released a split LP between Noveller and unFact (David Wm. Sims of the Jesus Lizard) last year. Lipstate is currently working on ‘Glacial Glow’, the follow-up to ‘Desert Fires,’ to be released by Weird Forest in May. She has previously performed as a member of Cold Cave, Parts & Labor, and One Umbrella. Lipstate has also participated in Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Army, and Glenn Branca’s 100 guitar ensemble.

Singer, guitarist and producer Lee Ranaldo co-founded Sonic Youth in 1981 and has been active in lots of different projects including Text of Light with Alan Licht, Ulrich Krieger, Christian Marclay and William Hooker. He’s also a writer and visual artist.
