Bill Laswell’s output is sprawling and exceedingly tough to classify. One reason is that his bass work—stretching from ’80s gigs with avant-funk collective Material and punk-jazz brutalists Last Exit to more recent projects such as prog-fusion trio Blixt—is just a fraction of his sonic saga. What other figure would’ve produced both Mick Jagger and Motörhead, teamed Yoko Ono with reggae rhythm kings Sly and Robbie, or ushered Herbie Hancock into the hip-hop era? Catch him here with a variety of heavy collaborators. See thestonenyc.com for the full schedule.
