DO-OVER Music Series
A music composition/improvisation lab co-curated by Jordan Glenn and Lisa Mezzacappa

Every First Saturday (EXCEPT THIS ONE) at Temescal Art Center, Oakland

East Bay musicians Jordan Glenn and Lisa Mezzacappa host a performance series featuring exploratory music for large(r) ensembles, alternating each month between two featured groups: Glenn’s The Jordan Glenn Party and Mezzacappa’s collaboration with drummer Jason Levis, the new duo B. Experimental Band. Each night also features a series of solo and duo sets by local and visiting artists, focusing on works-in-progress, new collaborations, and first forays into intermedia, installation and durational works. DO-OVER is a place for experimentation, impracticality, and glorious failure—not necessarily a series for pre-existing bands or established projects—that encourages members of the Bay Area music community to embrace discomfort and explore new practices in a supportive environment, holding on to the artistic values that have always made this scene so special.
