Latitude 49 at New Music Detroit

Latitude 49 will be performing on September 14th at 6:00 pm at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), as part of New Music Detroit.  John’s “Puzzle Lunch Tulips Cheezeborger (and other non sequiturs)” will be on the program. PLTC takes it name from random comments made on a facebook post.  The piece demonstrates our short attention span and constant distractions with today’s technology.
