One of the coolest events in the Red Bull Music Academy's stacked month of programming, this fascinating gig convenes stellar talent from all across the jazz, hip-hop, indie-rock and electronica spectra for an evening of musical speed dating. The eye-popping list of performers includes Andrew Bird, Andrew W.K., James Chance, Joe Lovano, Julia Holter, Kim Gordon, Matana Roberts, Vijay Iyer, Robert Glasper and the mighty Questlove. Want to know who'll end up onstage with whom? You'll just have to ask one of the lucky ticket holders.
