Lawndale Art Center says

Lawndale Art Center is proud to present SPEAKEASY, a new program initiative that re-envisions Lawndale's "Speakeasy" series that took place from 1993-2002. This series will cast a reflexive eye on Lawndale's historical relationship to live music and performance, as well as the exploration of issues in contemporary art.

Our first event will take place over two consecutive evenings in late April and will feature David Dove/Jawwaad Taylor, Charalambides, Helen Money and Soldier Kane.

Cold beverages generously provided by The Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

David Dove/Jawwaad Taylor
For almost 10 years, trumpeter/rapper/producer Jawwaad Taylor and trombone player David Dove have crafted a music that seeks the plasticity and responsiveness of free improvisation, while maintaining the integrity of its influences. Trombone (pitched down, creeping slow from subwoofers), live electronics, and the free-est of freestyle MC-ing are among the many layers that construct long-form and widely dynamic spontaneous music.

For their first Houston appearance in nine years, Charalambides will stretch and explore compositions featured on recent releases by both the band and singer/ writer Christina Carter. Contemporary Charalambides performances oscillate between the poles of charged, pin-drop silence and layered guitar roar, often in the course of the same song.

Co-presented with Table of the Elements

**$18 General Admission for LAC Members
Helen Money
A cellist who emerged out of the 90s rock scene in Chicago, Helen Money (the nom de guerre of Alison Chesley) has been noted as a "classical-cellist-turned-avant-metal-virtuoso" and currently resides in her hometown of Los Angeles.

Soldier Kane, with a multi-media presentation of masterworks by photographer Art Kane
Downtown NY music legends Jonathan Kane (guitar, drums) and Dave Soldier (violin, banjo) as Soldier Kane harness their collective experiences into a singular sound encompassing minimalism, blues, noise, jazz, soul, country, and the great American songbook.
