CANCELED: July 30, 7:00 pm: Tom Baker Quartet, plus Leanna Keith (bass flute) solo set

Apologies from TBQ and Leanna, but the likelihood of uncomfortably warm Gallery space because of the ongoing heatwave along with renewed concerns about a faster=spreading Covid variant brought us to make the decision to postpone this show; more details will be posted here (and on the Facebook link below) when we find a good time to try this event again. Stay tuned! TBQ brings new tunes and improvisations for the dog days of summer. With our friend, the amazing Leanna Keith, performing an opening set on solo bass flute. Hope you can come out! $5 – 15 sliding scale donation — but no one will be turned away.

July 9th – Matthew Ryals (NYC)

Matthew Ryals (Brooklyn) / Chari ( Seattle) / Dark Sparkler (Bothell)

July 9th

Suggested donation 10-20

An evening of electronic music curated by Matthew Ryals with support from some local musicians.

On tour from Brooklyn, NY, Matthew Ryals is a modular synthesist known for his work merging generative/algorithmic techniques with free improvisation. He is currently touring in support of his newest album, impromptus in isolation, “a bold, joyous tear through visceral free jazz, bucolic ambience, head-scratching sound design, and more.” – Mike Nigro, Oxtail Recordings.

For the tour, Matthew has developed a set of “Performance Patches” centered around various generative processes. In lieu of a lead sheet, each patch serves as a jumping off point for deep, improvisational exploration resulting in a unique and entirely unpredictable performance each night. 
impromptus in isolation releases June 17th on Sound As Language on cassette and digital. It was recorded live at home without overdubs.

Arrington de Dionyso + Noel Kennon, Pink Void, Sarah Pyle > May 14th 8pm

10 – 20 dollar suggested donation

doors at 8 music soon after ->

Arrington de Dionyso + Noel Kennon

Arrington de Dionyso conjures Utopic Spaces with multiphonic vocal work & minimalist instrumentation. It’s shamanic seance meets rock and roll ecstasy; “TRANCE PUNK” combining traditional ritual trance, electrified experimental approaches, dancehall rhythms, gamelan scales and mystically inspired Indonesian incantations. Shocking and hallucinatory, MALAIKAT DAN SINGA always aims to channel Spirit.

Noel Kennon is a musician living and listening in Seattle, WA.


Pink Void

“Noise queen Crystal Perez will take the stage as Pink Void to provide “sensual nightmare soundtracks for the whole family”.” – The Stranger

” (aka guitarist/keyboardist Crystal Perez) operates in the hazy zone where meditative drone and unsettling cacophony converge.” Dave Segal


Sarah Pyle presents a new work for solo flute

Four Ways of Moving through Penrose Point is a 20-minute electroacoustic work played from a limited run of linoleum print graphic scores. Each score represents a notable feature of Penrose Point State Park, located in South Puget Sound, and invites the performer to explore movement through the lush yet harsh winter landscape of the Point.

5- 15 suggested donation

halfbird (pdx) – punk free jazz

“No Gods, No Masters, No Songs.”

the social stomach (pdx) – spoken word exorcism

“As cyborg-like TJ Thompson splits his body and mind between drums and electronics, vocalist Diana Oropeza conducts an exorcism of language, her torrent of words crashing into and arcing above the legible chaos summoned by her bandmate. It’s not noise. It’s not punk. It’s not poetry. It’s not rock n roll. It’s all of those things. It’s none of those things. It’s something else entirely.” -C. Stamm  

the impressionists – dissociative scrap collage

“content and expression”
