He is a curator at the weekly music series A.E. Randolph Presents at Bar Below Rye in S. Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

HOT DATE, Apocalypso, Mothguts, Mike Pride's Drummer's Corpse, his own quartet, and many others. As a composer, he has written extensively for his quartet and for various chamber ensembles.

Chris Welcome attended Rutgers University where he studied closely with Vic Juris, Stanley Cowell, and Ralph Bowen. He was born in 1980 in New York and grew up in the Chicago area where he studied guitar with Frank Portolese. He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Will McEvoy's Third Coast Quartet
Will McEvoy (doublebassist, composer)
A recent transplant to SE Michigan by way of many years in NYC, McEvoy is premiering his new group and a new set of compositions. Eschewing traditional forms these pieces are cartographic in scope. The music features moments of unison coordination as well as startling layers of improvisation and thematic material.
Marcus Elliot- soprano
Tim Haldeman- tenor
Jon Taylor- percussion
Will McEvoy- double bass/composer

A trio of strange and articulate musicians/composers/statesmen, Ben Willis, James Cornish & Yuri Popowycz search for the unknown on brass, bass and violin.

Music at 8pm sharp!
5-10$ requested.
