The San Francisco based performance group foreignfire creates aesthetically powerful events in the overlapping area of performance art and Jewish ritual.
Their latest album "unsolicited" squeezes out gastric confessions from the nowtime of Jewish American experience.

Eight Durations is the second album released by M-KAT Ensemble, a San Francisco Bay Area improvising quartet. The group takes its inspiration from Sun Ra, world music, dark-ambient drone, and avant-rock. This band builds its real-time compositions into structures that resemble the termite towers of Namibia or chemical clocks on the far side of the Moon.


Cost: $8-15 sliding
