From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center
4th Floor, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N, Seattle 98103 (corner N 50th St. in Wallingford)
Every month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded presenters and artists offer ten concerts of adventurous music in an informal yet respectful all-ages setting: contemporary classical, free improvisation, the outer limits of jazz, electronic music, microtonal/new instruments, sound art, and other extraordinary sonic experiences.

Earshot: Arsonists + OverPlay
Thu. July 14; 8 PM; $5 – $15 online/at the door

Earshot’s Jazz: The 2nd Century program invites Seattle musicians to consider the future of jazz. The Arsonists play an eclectic mix of sounds and styles, from neo-Caribbean dancehall beats and pseudo-Eurasian melodic exotica to passionate post-jazz wailing and down-home funk-metal grooves. OverPlay are an exploratory tenor sax/drum duo, joined by Sister Nader on clarinet.

Ensemble Audax

New Music for Old Souls is a collaborative concert between Ensemble Audax and Seattle composers Marguerite Brown and Sierra Klingele.
