Arrington de Dionyso will be roaring back into Sacramento on Jan. 15 at Luna’s Cafe with Philadelphia-based percussionist Ben Bennett. I’ll be opening the show with a San(s) Kazakgascar Solo set. Dionyso and Bennett plan on doing solo sets and a collaboration set. Arrington will be joining in on my set. There will also be a short “This Saxophone Kills Fascists” set at the end with local saxy folks joining in. Got all that? More crumbs of show info can be had at Facebook. The show starts at 7:30.
I’m excited to play a show with Arrington again and I’m sure I’ve told you about the Tired Minds Improvised recording we did together. You can read about it HERE. I’m always interested to see which ways he is going to push things. I’ve never seen Ben Bennett play before, but know that he has some unique approaches to percussion. He also has some notoriety for logging hundreds of hours of sitting and smiling in four hour increments.
San Kazakgascar has kept a low profile this last year, but I’m looking forward to trying some ideas I’ve been chewing on, solo style. Most of my focus lately has been on Swimming in Bengal, but this is a chance for me to run through the fields buck naked.
