1st set 8:00pm: Soldier Kane
2nd set 9:30pm: Ursel Schlicht/Ken Filiano/Lou Grassi


Jonathan Kane (February, Swans, La Monte Young) and Dave Soldier (Soldier String Quartet, John Cale, Thai Elephant Orchestra) perform a set of Uprooted Americana. With Soldier on violin and Kane on drums and guitar, they dismantle the Blues, the Great American Songbook, and R&B dance hits.

“Any self-respecting fan of downtown music could tell you that a project involving drummer Jonathan Kane and multi-instrumentalist David Soldier is bound to be both intensely eclectic and a whole lot of fun.”Time Out New York

“Somewhere between Sonic Youth and Steve Reich is the drummer Jonathan Kane – interested in the crossroads of new music iconoclasm and experimental rock. Virtuosic.”New York Times

“One thing about having an approach as idiosyncratic as Dave Soldier’s is that once listeners know your work at all, they realize that coming to new works with any expectations about style, form or language is fruitless.”New York Times

A piano trio that has been friends for many years: when Ursel Schlicht (Piano) first came to New York in the mid-late 1990s, she soon connected with Lou Grassi (Drums) and Ken Filiano (Bass), and they remain Ursel’s favorite rhythm section for spontaneous improvisation. This is the first trio performance after a long hiatus. Don’t miss it!
