Seattle Scene: March 13-30, 2018

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: Darius Jones solo
Tue. Mar. 13, 8 PM; $15, $13, $10 advance

This is not a Wayward show, but definitely of interest to our regulars. Earshot Jazz presents a solo concert by Darius Jones at the Chapel. One of the strongest and deepest improvisers on the New York scene, Jones is an alto saxophonist who follows a thread from Johnny Hodges to today’s avant garde. Got anything better to do on a Tuesday night?
