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

Every First Saturday at Temescal Art Center, Oakland

Every first Saturday, starting in 2019, 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.  More...

The monthly series of improvisation research at Temescal Arts Center continues. Bring your instrument or come to listen. No advance notice needed — just show up. Small groups will be randomly assembled from submitted names immediately before each group plays. We try to keep transition time between groups at a minimum. Over by 10pm. It's free. If you want to contribute, bring snacks and drinks.
