Curator Ben Tinker has announced plans for the next three months of programming in his adventurous series of live music at Adobe Books. Each of these will be three-set evenings with very little background information about any of the performers other than hyperlinks. However, if details are in short supply, experience has shown that these events can be very rewarding listening opportunities (and, for those who take the trouble to browse the shelves, they may be just as rewarding in offering reading opportunities).
