Fareed Haque Bringing MathGames to 2720 Cherokee on Friday, March 18

SOURCE: Published: 2011-03-08
Fareed Haque Guitarist Fareed Haque is returning to St. Louis later this month, bringing his new band MathGames to town for a performance at 8:30 p.m. Friday, March 18 at 2720 Cherokee.

In an interview earlier this year, Haque (pictured) told the blog Chicago Jam Scene that MathGames is now his “primary project" following his departure from Garaj Mahal, who have played here several times in recent years.

Described as an “electro-funktronic rave-up," MathGames made its debut last November in Chicago, and features Haque on Moog guitar synth along with Greg Fundis on drums and Alex Austin on upright bass. Both Fundis and Austin also have played with Haque in his group Flat Earth Ensemble, which works more in a “world music" vein. For more about MathGames, see this Jambands.com review of a show they did earlier this year in Chicago.

The show also will feature two opening acts: saxophonist Dave Stone's trio, and Hot House Sessions, which mixes live musicians with DJ grooves and will feature a guest appearance on this gig by guitarist Dave Black.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, and are on sale now via show promoters Loyal Family.
