Pluto's Lawyer + The Choir Invisible

Pluto's Lawyer + The Choir Invisible

Pluto's Lawyer - 8:30
Davy Lazar (trumpets, compositions) and Kate Gentile (drums) seek and destroy within dense monophonic thresholds. Davy's composing and improvising deliberately take a wide berth around typical trumpet material, instead embracing the instrument's percussive, intervallic, and catastrophic potential. Kate's long-stewing relationship with intricate and complex music amasses in an immediately identifiable voice equally yolked in both focused nuance and complete abandon. Together they forge knotty alloys of abstraction and realization, only to be reassembled in the hot bubbly cauldron of your brainmeat.

The Choir Invisible - 9:30
A compositionally collective trio comprised of Charlotte Greve (alto sax), Chris Tordini (bass), Vinnie Sperrazza (drums). 

Both bands are guaranteed to knock your wool socks right off. Don't get cold feet beforehand, though - come out! $10 for the night!

Mara Rosenbloom presents FLYWAYS 

Anais Maviel - Voice & Surdo Drum
Adam Lane - Bass
Mara Rosenbloom - Piano & Composition

Flyways are the migratory patterns of birds – navigating them takes a strong connection to one’s own center of gravity, and also an unwavering sensitivity to the movement of the flock. Tonight, Flyways will perform a piece entitled, “I know what I dreamed,” expanding the text from one of Adrienne Rich’s 21 love poems into a set length work, balancing a composed narrative with a dynamic level of improvisation. Adrienne Rich had a vision of a society where no human dominates another, and also a rich and complex awareness of what it means to inhabit, express, and sustain love; in expression of this work – FLYWAYS.
