Wednesday August 26th Perry Robinson/ Stochastic Mettle Union local #35
8:00pm
Perry Robinson, world-renowned jazz clarinetist, is joined with Seattle musical colleagues in the Jump Ensemble (www.jumpensemble.com) to explore some of his new and classic compositions.

Stochastic Mettle Union local #35 progressed from a want to perform in a setting where wanderlust is a valued commodity. Starting with an informed sensibility of “play for the song”, without the framework of convention.

Stochastic 1: random; specifically: involving a random variable
2: involving chance or probability

Mettle 1 a: vigor and strength of spirit or temperament
b: staying quality : stamina
2: quality of temperament or disposition

“If you absolutely needed to shove the members of Stochastic Mettle Union into a genre box, the closest you could find is the one marked "jazz." But even though the group plays tunes like "Ornette's Cage"—a reference to avant-bop icon Ornette Coleman—and exhibit a penchant for double bass and wind instruments, the tag still seems limiting. This ever-evolving project encompasses some free jazz ideals (amorphous rhythms, dissonance) and rends them asunder by way of laptop manipulations and scratchy post-punk guitars. And since they improvise every performance, they could zig into pure noise or play with delicate restraint. That's a recipe for avant-greatness in my book. ROBERT HAM”

Beth Fleenor celebrates 35 laps around the Sun and 10 years of the Frank Agency, with Crystal Beth & the Boom Boom Band, Amy Denio, Trimtab, Tarik Abouzied Duo and Angela Sheik.

8:00pm: Amy Denio/ Tarik Abouzied Duo
The Denio/Abouzied duo features internationally renowned multi-instrumentalist Amy Denio improvising and playing her compositions on bass, alto saxophone, clarinet and singing, accompanied by phenomenal musician Tarik Abouzied on drums.
Denio was recently voted into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame. Abouzied is a composer, and well known for his excellent drumming skills in organ trio McTuff with Joe Doria and Andy Coe.

9:00pm: Angela Sheik
A truly groundbreaking musical force of nature, soulful music innovator Angela Sheik opens up a world of sonic, rhythmic and compositional possibilities that have driven her success as a multi-faceted, trip-hop and electronic-infused folk-pop indie artist. Based in Wilmington, Delaware, Sheik is a crafty multi-instrumentalist (autoharp, theremin, flute) who uses a loop pedal to create a richly textured exploration of deep grooves, infectious melodies, dynamic vocal harmonies, and soulful ambiences. Angela has been brilliantly fusing her traditional singer/songwriter leanings with electronic innovations since the release of her aptly titled 2011 debut EP “Songs from the Red Box” as the Grand Prize winner of the BOSS Loop Station 2011 U.S. National Finals, winner of the Philadelphia Songwriter Project Competition and twice voted Female Artist of the Year (93.7 WSTW Hometown Heroes). Wowing audiences with her fearless creative experimentation, mischievous smile and self-generated swirl of rhythmic harmonies, the multi-talented artist has toured the U.S. and Europe; and opened for The Neon Trees, Julia Holter, Joseph Arthur, and renowned bassist and pop singer Meshell Ndegeocello. She has just released her second full length album, "Home Before Dark," to critical acclaim. www.angelasheik.com

10:00pm: Led to Sea
Led to Sea is the unusual and magnetic solo project from the Seattle-based violinist, violist and singer Alex Guy, who fuses classical, pop and experimental music. Her live show as a string player and vocalist has captivated audiences all over the U.S. and Europe, and draws comparisons to St. Vincent and Andrew Byrd. She has opened for and shared the stage with a host of renowned artists, including Laura Veirs, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Mirah and Jherek Bischoff. She has also contributed to albums from Amanda Palmer, Xiu Xiu, Laura Veirs, Mirah and Parenthetical Girls.

11:00pm: Trimtab
Led by guitarist/composer Jason Goessl. The unpredictability and complexity of their compositions is magnetic, generating a seemingly new listening experience with each performance. Varied meters create hypnotic tensions. Abrasive chordal and percussive expression mixed with gentler melodies and intense dynamic changes creates a unique gravitational pull. Whether listening to the arc of a Trimtab album or just a single composition, a development from compression, to tension, to visual, to abstract, to the electrical is evidenced.

12:00am: Crystal Beth & The Boom Boom Band
With the reflexes of a mongoose and the swagger of a leftist John Wayne, Crystal Beth* (aka: Beth Fleenor) spins her own brand of posicore purge-pop-punk-hop: a sweaty trance psychedelic ritual. Expect intense currents of bethnic chanting, propelled by the ferocious beating of the Boom Boom…
The Boom Boom Band features Tristan Gianola (guitar), Michael Owcharuk (keys), Paul Kemmish (bass) & Adam Kozie (drums).

*Crystal Beth is a psychoactive stimulant that increases alertness, concentration, and energy, and in high doses, can induce euphoria, enhance self-esteem, and increase libido.
