Sunday, March 2, 2019, I’ll be playing at one of my favorite New York venues, the Sunview Luncheonette (sometimes called the Sunview Lunch-net)—a bona-fide Greek diner, mostly unchanged since the 1960s, and now an occasional venue for improvisatory, noise, and post-rock music..
The show features an interesting array of musicians, with an opening set by Robbie Lee (winds) and Lea Bertucci (live tape electronics), a set I’m doing with Norbert Rodenkirchen (Baroque recorders/flutes, a member of Sequentia) that’s deconstructing the music of Demetrius Cantemir (Kantemiroğlu), and the trio of Robbie, Norbert and James Ilgenfritz (bass).
Doors at 7:30 and music soon at 8, don’t miss it! It’s a small venue with limited seating (vinyl-covered diner booths, and 2 phone booths for those who want seating “out of the box,” or perhaps more accurately “in a different box.”
