Influential songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Kristin Hersh, leader of the indie rock band, Throwing Muses and the noise rock power trio, 50 Foot Wave, is on the road with her highly acclaimed Fire Records release, “Possible Dust Clouds.” The touring trio is a hard hitting super group: Fred Abong, bass player from Throwing Muses (who opens solo, promoting his new ep, “Pulsing”) and Rob Ahlers, drummer of 50 Foot Wave. These electric trio shows are loud, tight and intense, featuring material from across Kristin’s thirty year career.
FRED ABONG is a singer/songwriter and one time bass player for the influential art-punk band Throwing Muses and the Grammy nominated alt-rock band Belly.
Prior to that, Fred was active as a drummer and bass player in numerous bands centered on the Newport RI hardcore punk scene.
In addition to playing music, Fred earned his Ph.D in Humanities in 2016.
