July 17, 1967), JCMC has scheduled a week-long series of events, combined with a month-long photo exhibit, providing insight into the many ways to really hear and view ‘Trane, who harbored such a strong belief that the power of his music could affect positive social change. It is a week to jump on board the ‘Trane phenomenon.

Max Eilbacher, Leila Bordreuil & Zach Rowden, and Heterodyne in Baltimore, August 12

August 12 at High Zero’s Red Room, adjacent to Normal’s Books & Records
425 E 31st St, Baltimore, Maryland 21218
Doors: 8:30
Music: 9
$5-$10

Leila Bordreuil and Zach Rowden met at a free jazz concert in 2015. Zach was wearing a Man is the Bastard bootleg T-shirt which acted as an icebreaker, and these two classically trained musicians started collaborating shortly after. Bordreuil and Rowden have diverse influences, ranging from improvised music, harsh noise, cold wave, existentialism and a common obsession for Spectral Music.
