The Rush Hour Concert Series, a summer-long program of classical music, opens today at Saint James Cathedral with Fulcrum Point New Music Project performing the score to Igor Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat. Other highlights on the schedule include performances by artists at the Lyric's Ryan Opera Center and Fifth House Ensemble's rendition of Bela Bartók's Contrasts.
Artists, activists, musicians, architects, politicians, chefs, and more gather tonight at Martyrs' to share 20 images for 20 seconds each, resulting in a night of short presentations and idea sharing. It's all part of the 30th installment of Pecha Kucha.
New York-based singer-songwriter Yonatan Gat stops by Schubas tonight. In Soundboard Leor Galil writes, "His new EP, Iberian Passage (Joyful Noise), is a stew of Brazilian psych, pan-African rock, explosive punk, and outre lo-fi indie. Gat leads you through his music's many changes with guitar playing so wildly inventive and freewheeling that it sounds like he's making it up as he goes the whole time."
