8pm: Konoko Nishi/Corey Fogel Duo
9pm: Nighttime (dreamy dark folk from Brooklyn - guitar/violin/voice/loops)

Corey Fogel is a drummer and artist currently living in Los Angeles, CA. His practice is based in spontaneous encounters, often involving the intersection of sounds, objects, textiles, foods and often include collaboration with other musicians and artists. Fogel engages the viewer to considering sound as a medium on par with paint and cellulose, a constant in our daily lives. Through his work he challenges us to consider the contexts in which we create, store and understand sound.

Kanoko Nishi-Smith is a performer currently based in SF/Bay Area. Though classically trained on piano, receiving a BA in Classical Music Performance from Mills College, her recent interest has primarily been in performing 20th century and contemporary musical compositions for piano as well as for koto (Japanese 13-string zither), and free-improvisation in various different contexts, with musicians, as well as dancers, poets,and visual artists

Nighttime is the haunting and melodic folk of Brooklyn-based artist Eva Louise Goodman. From ambient soundscapes and live string and vocal loops flowers a world lost between wakefulness and dreaming. Passing thoughts weave through churning instrumentals leaving behind a wake of nostalgia for a place neither familiar nor unknown.

Cost: $6-15 sliding scale
