Saturday, November 3, 6-10pm Thollem McDonas, Mark Southerland, Craig
Comstock - solos, duos and trios - Pass-the-Hat
Thollem McDonas is a classically trained pianist who has made quite a
name for himself working with lots of great artists... William Parker,
Pauline Oliveros, Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Mike Watt, Nels Cline,
Arrington deDionyso, pretty awesome stuff if you ask me...
Here's a snippet from his website www.thollem.com:
Thollem travels perpetually as a pianist, vocalist, collaborator
and facilitator. His musical experiences are extremely diverse
and his ever expanding variety of approaches to making music
result in dramatically new and different outcomes. He plays in
punk clubs, museums, concert halls and riots. He works regularly
with film makers, dancers, poets and painters as well as a wide
array of divergent musicians and communities. He is the founding
director of Estamos Ensemble, a Mexican-American cross-border
ensemble for musical exchange, as well as lead singer of Tsigoti,
a socio-politically charged avant-punk band among many other
groups and collaborations .
Thollem, Mark Southerland of Snuff Jazz and other fames and Craig
Comstock (This Is My Condition) will be playing solos, duets and trios
as the mood strikes us. Prepare for a Pass-the-Hat that's free as in
Beer and as in Spirit. Oh but we do appreciate it when you put some
money in the hat.
