Land and Buildings is an up-and-coming NYC/Ann Arbor-based electronic duo. They have a new cassette on the Life Like label and helping them celebrate are some favorite like-minded solo and duo electronics practitioners from the Detroit region: The New Me (Matt Conzett and Claire Cirocco), Chris Koltay solo and the duo of Dominic Coppola and Fred Thomas. Expect doses of both the experimental and the catchy. Doors at 8 pm. FREE

Sunday, Feb. 17: Joel Peterson: Chamber Music Works with James Greer, Abby Alwin and Lisa Raschiatore.- plus Matt Smith solo
As a run-up to the larger-scale concert I’ll be doing in May at The Cube @ The Max, this concert will focus on pieces for trio and quartet. Featuring the outstanding talents of Lisa Raschiatore (clarinet), James Greer (viola) and Abby Alwin (cello)- with myself on guitar for some. These are through-composed pieces, so how better to start the evening off than with the “comprovising,” multi-instrumental solo set of Matthew Smith to kick things off. Doors at 7:30; $7.

For the past two decades multi-instrumentalist Marcia Bassett has been at the forefront of the underground noise and improv scene. Since her early days with the band Un she has amassed a prolific output with her bands Hototogisu, GHQ, and Double Leopards as well as collaborations with Samara Lubelski, Barry Weisblat and Andrew Lafkas. Under the name Zaïmph, her long-running solo project, she has just released the gorgeous and ambitious double LP “Rhizomatic Gaz” on Drawing Room Records. Marcia is a true underground hero and is a pleasure to speak with.

Minneapolis Festival Honors Henry Threadgill


A “zooid” is a cell that can move independently within a larger organism — making it the ideal moniker for Henry Threadgill’s fascinating quintet. Three years ago, Threadgill became only the third jazz composer to win the Pulitzer Prize for Zooid’s “In for a Penny, In for a Pound,” a 79-minute suite that includes a concerto-like piece for each of his bandmates. This weekend the group will provide the capstone performance for “Celebrating Henry,” a mini-festival at Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. It starts Friday, with two dozen local artists marking Threadgill’s 75th birthday by interpreting works from throughout his career. Zooid will perform Saturday along with the jazz power trio Harriet Tubman, comprising alumni from his previous bands.
