Nomad Trio

Gordon Grdina has managed to place a finger in every corner of the jazz/world fusion room. —Pop Matters

Complex, intricate, idiosyncratic, and rockin’—those are the adjectives that best describe this cross-border collaboration between Vancouver guitarist Gordon Grdina, and New York’s Matt Mitchell piano, and Jim Black drums. Juno Award winner Grdina’s compositions give the nod to 20th century classical composition, rock, free jazz, and third stream, and this trio promises to explore those ideas at their highest levels.

Peacock Lounge, 552 Haight, SF

Burmese
If you haven't yet heard (and marvelled at the cover art) of their 2xLP on Fuck Yoga Records out of Macedonia, untwist yourself and figure it out fast. Consider it a metaphyical stretch before you're standing a few feet away from them inside the Peacock Lounge.

Pandiscordian Necrogenesis
The compelling contraint of lo-fi metal becomes far more stark when further constrained to the blinding blur of just two arms, two legs, and one forked tongue.
https://pandiscordiannecrogenesis.bandcamp.com/

Foreskin Sashimi in Paradise
Sewn together from ninety-three locally sourced foreskins then slow roasted to perfection in an imported Siberian outhouse, this fusion twist on an old fashioned delicacy is sure to make the driest mouth water.

Ormus
Sound synthesis with its roots in heavy percussion, Ormus is the solo sonic and visual offering from multi-instrumentalist Ashley Spungin, rummer, coder, visual artist and instrument builder based in Portland.
