Most of this week’s action will be taking place, as previously reported, at the Center for New Music (C4NM), culminating in special performances for Halloween weekend. There are only two items to add to the C4NM agenda. Specifics are as follows:
Thursday, October 27, 8 p.m., Luggage Store Gallery: This week’s installment of the Luggage Store Creative (LSC) Music Series will consist of two sets of small-group improvisations. The first set will be taken by saxophonists Ari Brown and Tom Weeks. They will be followed by the EGW Trio of Karl Evangelista on guitar, Jordan Glenn on drums, and Francis Wong on saxophone. The Luggage Store Gallery is at 1007 Market Street, directly across from the Golden Gate Theatre at the corner of Golden Gate Avenue and Taylor Street. As with all LSC concerts, admission will be on a sliding scale between $6 and $15.
Friday, October 28, 8 p.m., Turquoise Yantra Grotto (TYG): The next house concert at the Turquoise Yantra Grotto will combine piano solos in ensemble improvisations with a strong bias towards live electronic music. The performers will be the Tender Buttons trio, whose pianist in Tania Chen. For the electronic improvisations Chen will be joined by Gino Robair and Tom Djll. The title of the program will be Deconstructed/Reconstructed, reflecting back on “classic electronic musics in a swarm of devices and languages” and rethinking these sources for in-the-moment improvisation. TYG is located at 32 Turquoise Way. Admission is between $10 and $15.
