Brooklyn-based indie trio Hospitality Brooklyn-based indie trio Hospitality (Ground Control Touring)

On Jan. 31, Brooklyn-based indie trio Hospitality, teamed up with the new-music wunderkinds Face the Music, to kick off the 2014 Ecstatic Music Festival® in the Greene Space at WQXR. Q2 Music's Helga Davis hosted. 

Watch a video of the entire performance.

Hailed as a sophisticated new pop voice, the "irresistibly charming" Hospitality combines wistful, ethereal vocals with some weighty ideas about life in transition, and Face the Music has been called “a force in the New York new-music world” by The New York Times. The two groups will perform a new piece by Hospitality member Nathan Michel and arrangements of the band's songs, and Hospitality will perform a set from their ambitious new record, "Trouble." 

Presented by Kaufman Music Center and curated by composer Judd Greenstein, the Ecstatic Music Festival has garnered critical attention and praise for transcending musical boundaries and has served as a touchstone for the burgeoning indie-classical scene. For the fourth year in a row, Q2 Music is the festival's digital venue and will be the center for on-demand artist interviews and concert audio.
