Moe Staiano (sticks, skins, metal and wood) & Jon Raskin (electrified bari) are performing the first set at the bi-monthly SIMM Music Series.
Come and hear the duo that will leave you wondering what will happen next and have you pondering such vital questions as: Is it _ _ _ _, or _ _ _ _, it combines _ _ _ _, reminds me of _ _ _ _ , It’s post _ _ _ _ or proto _ _ _ _. Whatever it is it’s not boring.


"Romus' fiery romp is a no-holds barred exposition. He slices through steel with accuracy and ease, equating to a jovial soundscape, scraped with intensifying solos and Everett's colorific cymbals hits. They galvanize your neural system from start to finish, while projecting a take no prisoners approach throughout." - Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
Saxophonist, composer Rent Romus started the Lords of Outland in 1994 a collective of like-minded musicians focusing on exploring improvisation, melody, noise, and sound art while acknowledging their jazz, rock, and blues roots. The group has developed original music ranging from unhinged free improvisation to thematic compositional suites inspired by abstract and socio-political poetry, science fiction, horror, and fantasy.

Cost: $10-$15 sliding scale
