Lost Civilizations, Sunwolf and Utenzil July 20 in DC

From July 20 at the Black Squirrel:

On July 20, 2014, Sunwolf will be joining the Lost Civilizations experimental music project and Utenzil in the Indie Adams Morgan (http://www.indieadamsmorgan.com/) series at the Black Squirrel (http://www.blacksquirreldc.com/).

Sunwolf is a trio comprised of Rob Tifford, Tom Bunnell and Jerry Busher. Sunwolf will be presenting an acoustic set at this performance.

The Lost Civilizations experimental music project (http://lost-civilizations.tumblr.com/; http://goo.gl/WfSs5) is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (tenor sax, saxello and bass clarinet) and T. A. Zook (basscello and misc. instruments). Although essentially a duo, when schedules permit, it is joined by Jerry Busher (drums); Amanda Huron (percussion); Doug Kallmeyer (bass and electronics), Nate Scheible (percussion), Mark Pry (drums), Larry Gomez (percussion) and Emily Chimiak (violin). At its July 20 performance, the Lost Civilizations experimental music project will be joined by Nate Scheible on drums.

Utenzil (http://www.utenzil.com/) is the solo project of Michael McMorris, which brings together fitful decades of musical experience/experiments plus software, laptops, mixer and instruments which include various controllers, a DIY double neck midi guitar, live guitar and voice.

This event is no cover/no minimum and all ages.

Anthony Braxton: An American Visionary

From Jazz Times:

In early April, Anthony Braxton stood in a seventh-floor rehearsal studio blocks from Times Square conducting his latest opera, Trillium J (The Non-Unconfessionables). A group of avant-garde luminaries buried their heads in the complex score. “Sellout, sellout, sellout,” sang Taylor Ho Bynum in a haunting ostinato. For Braxton, an avant-garde multireedist and composer who has never compromised his creative vision over a five-decade career, the pejorative was in no way autobiographical. “Suddenly, it might be possible to get on network television after all,” Ho Bynum recited in a sprechgesang reminiscent of Schoenberg, concluding the scene.
