Tonight's Housing Works show features dreamy violinist Kaoru Ishibashi, a.k.a. Kishi Bashi—who has played with Of Montreal, Sondre Lerche and Regina Spektor—teaming up with poet and author Brian Omni Dillon for a one-off collaboration. It's a chance to see the Seattle-born string guru in an intimate setting, in advance of his headlining show at Bowery Ballroom on February 8.
