Brooklyn, NY 11215
Celebrate the launch of My Little Book of Exiles, poems by Dan Alter. With music by Gaby Alter, an award winning songwriter and composer who performs folk pop as Yes Gabriel: Steve Espinola, whose songs combine a Piedmont-rag-trance approach to piano improv and a surrealist-romantic approach to words (performing/recording most recently in the Deposit Returners with Jeffrey Lewis and Peter Stampfel); and the Freethiopiques.
The Freethiopiques return to Barbes with their melodic groove, funk, and experimental jazz and blues. They combine the talents of a fiery horn section of Jessica Lurie (sax/flute, Tiptons Sax Quartet, Living Daylights) and Greg Glassman (trumpet, Taylor Mac), with a solid rhythm section of Brian Marsella (piano & organ, John Zorn), Jon Madof (guitar, Zion80), Yoshie Fruchter (bass, Sandcatchers, Zion80) and Chris Stromquist (drums, Slavic Soul Party, Kultur Shock).
7 to 9:30pm
