From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:


Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center

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.

Lucas Winter Quintet
Thu. Jan. 23, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Guitarist-composer Lucas Winter will lead a quintet of new original music featuring a host of the city’s top jazz improvisors, in a setting ripe with rhythmic exploration and a collective desire to communicate freely through new musical space.

Lori Goldston
Fri. Jan. 24, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door
