Terminology of Music Groups, part 3

On December 3rd covering ,

This just in from Kansas City: chamber music is the new punk rock, the Chiara String Quartet is the new Black Flag, which makes violinist Julie Yoon the new Henry Rollins.

Also, Eighth Blackbird flutist Tim Munro shows that modern chamber music is not for the faint of heart, enduring an onstage injury you’d expect to see on Sid Vicious.

All of which makes me feel somewhat better about speaking of small music groups generically as “bands”.

Don’t forget that Jethro Tull won a Grammy in 1989 for best hard rock/metal performance.
