ing synopsis 1

ing is a super fantastically entertaining band co-headed by my dear brother John. To quickly describe them, the performances are part music and part performance art. Both members are very skilled musicians who allow themselves to improvise. Every show is completely different. What will happen at an ing performance can not be predicted. So I started thinking I need to document my experience of some of the events.
