Roulette Opens in Brooklyn


From its founding in 1978, the performance space Roulette has served as a crucial home base for a vast, amorphous mass of activity that could collectively be lumped under the imprecise rubric of avant-garde music. Originally established in the TriBeCa loft space of Jim Staley, a trombonist and composer whose genius for improvisation has run parallel to his skill as an entrepreneurial impresario, Roulette survived the waning of the downtown loft scene during the early 1980s and outlasted storied nightclubs like the original Knitting Factory and Tonic.
