But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Saturday, August 20 – 7:30pm
Tim Daisy Quartet – Chicago avant garde drummer with local heavyweights

Chicago percussionist and composer Tim Daisy has assembled a new quartet made up of some of the Bay Area’s finest musicians: Phillip Greenleaf on tenor saxophone,Kyle Bruckmann on electronics and double reeds;  and Lisa Mezzacappa on bass. The music consists of original compositions composed by both Tim and Kyle (who collaborated frequently when Kyle lived in Chicago in the early 2000s) and is inspired by many areas of experimental sound making including but not limited to free jazz, contemporary classical and noise.

The new quartet will make its performance debut on Saturday August 20th at Bird & Beckett Books, on the eve of a recording session which is slated for release on Tim’s label Relay Recordings in 2023.

$20 cover charge (cash please).
Doors open at 7:20 for the 7:30 show. BYOB.

You can find the live stream on Bird & Beckett’s
YouTube channel or Facebook page.
