PW3 is an experimental music project featuring current members of, and past contributors to, seminal indie rock outfits such as The Apples in Stereo and Neutral Milk Hotel. Formed in the mid 90s out of a shared interest to perform jazz standards, they have gone on to pay homage to influences like James Brown, Sun Ra, Sonic Youth and Stereolab in original compositions.
Two local musicians, Jeff Hooton and Rex Spease, have come together to channel music that evokes a Paris street, wet with December rain, chilly yet happy with the bustle of shoppers; cafes full of beautiful people watching the world go by; and 1930s night clubs celebrating the time before the war. Jeff and Rex specialize in being multi-instrumental, so their concert includes music on accordion, flute, clarinet and saxophone. Vive la France!
