Grale is a Bay Area-based ensemble comprised of legendary avant-rock band MX-80 Sound members Dale Sophiea and Bruce Anderson, and Gregory Hagan (Angel Archer, Thomas Carnacki).
Grale has performed around the Bay Area since 2007 at Berkeley Arts, ATA, The Oakland Underground Film Fest, and, on a number of occasions, at the Pacific Film Archive / Berkeley Art Museum with thematic riffings on the films of directors Ken Russell, Guy Maddin, and the 1972 anti-classic Beware! The Blob.
Graleʼs debut release, Eternity, represents where the evolution that started with MX-80 Sound’s Hard Attack has led, more than 40 years hence (not the path many expected it to take...).
Guitarist Bruce Anderson will start things off with a solo set, then Gregory Hagan and Dale Sophiea will join the fun for a Grale set.
