Bitchin Bajas

December 6 & 7, 2022

Ars Nova Workshop presents a two-night program of hypnotic performances by Chicago trio Bitchin Bajas at Solar Myth on December 6 and 7, 2022.

Formed in 2010 by guitarist and organist Cooper Crain as an outlet for mesmerizing and eclectic electro-acoustic music, Chicago trio Bitchin Bajas make hypnotic instrumental music with a delicate balance of synthesizer and non-electronic instruments.

After its start as a solo side project for Crain, and with the additions of Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye forming a trio, the group’s psychedelic sound and textural explorations evolved as their discography expanded to include both casual recordings and more ambitious studio creations. Frequently released cassettes and EPs evolved into full-lengths like the 2016 Bonnie “Prince” Billy collaboration Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties, the band’s 2021 tribute to Sun Ra, Switched on Ra, and the 2022 double album Bajascillators.
