Boxdeserter Trio on Tour

Boxdeserter is playing tonight in Detroit as well as some coming dates:

Friday, April 17th: BoxDeserter Trio at Detroit Institute of Arts
Our favorite pianist, Thollem McDonas, returns to his favorite American city to kick off a tour by BoxDeserter Trio, with Skeeter Shelton and Joel Peterson. Speaking of favorites, Diego Rivera’s mural in the DIA is another of Thollem’s, which he didn’t realize was in Detroit until I took him to the museum. Now he gets to perform surrounded by it!

BoxDeserter mixes new chamber music, free improvisation and the broad repertoire of its members to create innovative, yet highly accessible music. Thollem has a new record coming out on ESP Disk and another release featuring his recent concert on Debussy’s piano in France! Skeeter Shelton is one of the great unsung saxophonists in Free Jazz and has performed with Fred Anderson, James Blood Ulmer, Dushun Mosley, Hakim Jami, Faruq Z. Bey and others. This will be the kick-off to BoxDeserter Trio’s midwest and east coast tour, so join us in The Rivera Court for two amazing sets- it’s free for city of Detroit residents and free with museum admission for everybody else!

Boxdeserter Trio tour dates:

4/17 Detroit Institute of Art Detroit, MI
4/18 Kerrytown Concert House Ann Arbor, MI
4/19 Hungry Brain Chicago, Il
4/20 Iron Post Urbana, Il
4/21 Charles and Limey’s Lounge Springfield, Il
4/23 Schlafy Tap Room St. Louis, MO
4/24 Schlafy Tap Room St. Louis, MO
4/24 (later) Mangia St. Louis, MO
4/25 Earthhouse Collective Indianapolis, IN
4/28 Exile Long Island, NY
