Downtown Music Gallery Performance (Sunday, January 15, 2017)

I'll be performing solo this Sunday, January 15, 2017, at the Downtown Music Gallery. It will be a  double-bill with Finnish alto saxist Mikko Innanen (shown in picture) who will also be performing solo. Showtime is at 6:00 PM. Here are the address and phone number: 13 Monrow Street, New York, NY 10002 (212) 473 -0043

If you're not familiar with the DMG, here's a little background information from Wikipedia about this fascinating experimental music oasis:

"Downtown Music Gallery is a long-running internationally known record store, mail-order, and performance space, inNew York City, specializing in "Downtown Music", a recognized catchphrase for avant-garde jazz and contemporary composition, experimental, and improvisational music from around the world. It was founded in 1991, originally at 211 East 5th street for the first ten years of its existence, followed by seven years at 342 Bowery. It is currently located in Two Bridge, Manhattan at 13 Monroe St. Bruce Lee Gallanter, the founder, and Emanuel 'MannyLunch' Maris, formerly the owner of Lunch For Your Ears, run the shop. The store also devotes an entire 700-CD display to John Zorn'sTzadik label, as it also operates the mail-fulfillment for the label. DMG features in-store live performances for free every Sunday night, and on other nights for special occasions. DMG also provides the telephone information service for The Stone performance space, founded 2005."
