Television were one of the most creative bands to emerge from New York’s punk scene of the mid-’70s, creating an influential new guitar vocabulary. While guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd liked to jam, they didn’t follow the accepted rock structures for improvisation — they removed the blues while retaining the raw energy of garage rock, adding complex, lyrical solo lines that recalled both jazz and rock. With its angular rhythms and fluid leads, Television‘s music always went in unconventional directions, laying the groundwork for many of the guitar-based post-punk, pop and alternative rock groups of the late ’70s and ’80s. Telvision will perform the masterpiece album Marquee Moon in its entirety at Bukta and becomes the frosting on this years proverbial Bukta cake. What a program we have in store for you, if we can allow ourselves to be so bold to say so. And we just did. Great success!
