Avant-Jazz and Schoenberg’s Trio, Starting Tonight
Wanted to get this post up sooner, but my idealized image of blogging from the coffee shop where I was working ran afoul of phone lines damaged by last night’s storms rendering the shop free wi-fi-free. But here goes anyway. Lots of new music to be heard this weekend with some classics mixed in too.
Tonight (Thursday), 10 p.m. at Remedy: All-star avant-jazz trio Lisle Ellis, M.C. Schmidt, and Jason Willet, aka Instant Coffee, will play at Remedy, starting promptly at 10 p.m. and the group will be joined by local improv heroes Josh Beyer (micro-set on homebuilt guitar & electronics), David Bernabo Vocal Assembly (all vocal ensemble + laptop), Plainswalkers (Mike Kasunic, Ryan Emmett, Reeves Smith doing things), and Michael Johnsen + Margaret Cox (electronics, etc.) Cover charge is $5-$10 or whatever you can afford. All proceeds go to the Trio. (H/T to Edgar Um for heads-up on the local acts)
Saturday, 2 p.m. at Frick Fine Arts Auditorium: Eugene Phillips and friends play Schoenberg’s Trio, Haydn and Schubert, free.
Saturday, 8 p.m. (also) at Frick Fine Arts Auditorium: Dutch Jazz Trio Bram-DeJoode-Vatcher, $10 at the door.
