Mecha Sonic Sessions is taking place in Brooklyn Friday and Saturday night (May 19 and 20)

This weekend a unique performance is taking place in Brooklyn. A combination of professional musicians, amateurs and metal shop workers collaborate on something that has come to be known as the Mecha Sonic Sessions. There’s music coming from flame-spewing brass instruments and some unconventional percussion instruments.
