The Bedroom Community Whale Watching 2016 Tour is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.
The adventurous and eclectic Icelandic Bedroom Community record label tour—its first-ever in the U.S.—stops at The Warhol theater. The 2016 Whale Watching tour artists include Nico Muhly, Ben Frost, Sam Amidon, and Valgeir Sigurðsson. Founded in 2006, a diverse array of like-minded artists from around the globe converged at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavík, Iceland, to record their music. This is the label’s third Whale Watching tour.
“The Whale Watching Tour is an opportunity to manifest what we, as a record label and a collective of disparate musical personalities, do behind the closed doors of the studio. To create something uniquely belonging to the live experience from source material that is very familiar to us. These shows are fueled by joyful energy and appreciation for each other but also tension, blood and sweat that makes it all the more rewarding at the end of the day.” — Valgeir Sigurðsson
The performance is co-presented with the Music on the Edge series of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Music.
