Jessica Pavone + Curhachestra + Scopa Trio at Zebulon Nov 12th

A free(?) show coming to New York’s Zebulon:

November 12th
8:30 pm (free)
Zebulon
258 Wythe Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11211-3914
(718) 218-6934

Jessica Pavone presents:
Wordless songs inspired by life’s cast of characters
Jessica Pavone – violin, viola
Brandon Seabrook – guitar
Jonti Siman – eletric bass
Harris Eisenstadt – drums

Curha-chestra
Brian Drye (farfisa organ, synth)
Timothy Monaghan (drums, guitar)
Brandon Seabrook (electric guitar and banjo)
Christopher Tordini (bass)
Curha (alto trombone, guitar and other odd items).

The Curha-chestra is a group that strives to combine electronic music concepts with an acoustic mindset. Somehow, the music creates a thin line between new wave and old time with the ever-shifting orchestral possibilities keeping the sound fresh and interesting. Curtis Hasselbring is the creative voice behind the Curha-chestra. Under the moniker Curha, he has created a large body of works that are a combination of lo-fi electronics, sample-based technology and his own skills as a multi-instrumentalist/composer. Curha has also remixed the music of Slavic Soul Party, Golem and Frank London in addition to his self-made releases.

Brian Drye Presents:
Scopa Trio
Brian Drye – Trombone / Compositions
Vinnie Sperrazza – Drums
Geoff Kraly – Electric Bass

Brian Drye (Slavic Soul Party, Frank London, Firewater) has formed a new power trio with new compositions. These days, trombone is the new guitar.

Improvised Silence Amid the Sounds at the Stone

Tyshawn Sorey at Stain Bar, Brooklyn

NYTimes.com reviews Tyshawn Sorey at the Stone.

The drummer Tyshawn Sorey confounds easy assumptions, including the assumption that because he is a drummer, his own music should favor the drums, or the assumption that because he plays jazz, all of his music should sound like jazz. His new band is a trio with guitar and bass, but it’s pretty far from any standard model with that setup.
