No Longer Showing.

This double bill brings together Roland P. Young and L’Rain. A classically trained jazz clarinetist, Young has been at the vanguard of American experimental music for decades, from his early days as a radio host on the famed San Francisco radio station KSAN in the 1960s–1970s to his more recent experiments with electronic, jazz, and world genres. Young performs a set of spiritual electronic world jazz music with acoustic instrumentation guiding synthesized rhythms. Brooklyn songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Taja Cheek performs under the mononym L’Rain. Together with her band, she plays a set of spiritual music equally rooted in RnB, jazz, noise, and pop. Organized by Matthew Lyons. Co-presented with Public Records, with additional support from Palto Flats.
