On Wednesday April 11, 2018, at 7:30PM, the Soundwaves new music series at the Santa Monica Public Library welcomes Philadelphia trio Roughhousing for a set of free improvisation at the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium at the Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

Roughhousing is saxophonist Jack Wright, guitarist Zach Darrup, and bassist Evan Lipson. Wright is a legend of underground music, touring constantly, connecting players across generations and communities, and recently publishing The Free Musics, a book of history and theory. His visits to Los Angeles are rare and much-anticipated.

Soundwaves is a concert series presenting artists who appear on the DRAM (Database of Recorded American Music) streaming service. The Santa Monica Public Library is the first public library to offer this service to its cardholders. Listings of past and upcoming Soundwaves shows as well as sound and video recordings are at SoundwavesNewMusic.com
