Ian Carey Quintet Club

When: Sun., Nov. 4, 6 & 7:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $20
A fluent and often arresting improviser and a composer with a keen sense of form, Carey presents the world premiere of Fire in My Head (The Anxiety Suite), an extended, multi-movement work that straddles straight-ahead jazz and chamber music to explore America in an age of angst (on both a personal and community level). It might sound forbidding, but Carey possesses a broad streak of puckish, even absurdist humor that has surfaced in non-musical settings via his contributions to David Eggers’ literary journal McSweeney's.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
