The Cell Theater
This Thursday, May 24, the New York Composers Meetup and the Tribeca New Music Festival will combine forces for a workshop/concert at the beautiful Cell Theater in Chelsea.
Here’s what TimeOut NY has to say about it.
“Guitarist and composer Nick Didkovsky is best known for the gnarly complexity and rocking rhythms he plies in his main band, Doctor Nerve. Here he leads Zinc Nine Psychedelic, a trio with trumpeter Dave Ballou and percussionist Kevin Norton, in a new version of Cortex, a 2009 work that expands the three instrumentalists' palettes through the use of active electronics.”
If you’re a guitarist, percussionist, brass player, or composer, or just into amazing improvisation, this meetup is for you!
The event is open to the public and tickets are $20 at the door. NY Composer Meetup members get in for half price—our regular $10 charge, and you get to drink for free.
We’ll start by discussing their instruments and approach. Then we’ll hear them perform, and then we’ll have a party/reception afterwards to network and discuss. It's going to be fun, and you just might learn something!
I hope you join me for what promises to be a way, way cool new meetup.
Party on, Garth!
