Glenn Branca featured in Riverfront Times

The Riverfront Times this week has several pieces related to composer Glenn Branca, whose symphony for 100 electric guitars "Hallucination City" was performed last night at The Pageant as part of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra's Guitar Festival.

There's a feature story about the event here; an extended interview with Branca by the RFT's Roy Kasten here; and a two-part account by guitarist and RFT scribe Ryan Wasoba of what it was like to prepare and play the Branca piece, found here and here.
