- 7:30pm: Song & Dance Trio featuring Cory Wright, Jordan Glenn, Karl Evangelista, Myles Boisen
- 8:30pm: Mooncake featuring Motoko Honda, Biggi Vinkeloe
Karl Evangelista’s Song & Dance Trio is a longstanding collaboration with baritone saxophonist Cory Wright and drummer Jordan Glenn, a functional jazz trio that explores the nexus between free improvisation, rock elements, and noise music. The Song & Dance Trio synthesizes its influences into songs that are unique, surprising, and yes–fun and danceable. Tiny Mix Tapes calls Evangelista’s music “essential current and future listening,” and fans of Canterbury prog rock, 60’s Impulse! records, and Bay Area pop will find plenty to enjoy in Song & Dance’s special blend.
Hailing from 3 different continents, the female music trio “Mooncake” consists of Swedish-based saxophonist, flutist Biggi Vinkeloe; flutist, vocalist Emily Hay from Los Angeles; and Japanese born pianist, sound artist Motoko Honda who now lives in Oakland. Hay and Honda have collaborated for many years together as “Polarity Taskmasters” and at the the suggestion of bay area booker/promoter Rent Romus, first met Vinkeloe in San Francisco in 2014 to collaborate, scheme and explore unchartered sonic worlds through improvisation and immediate composition which endeavors span the scope of free jazz, electronic forays with complex classical inuendo and primal searching.
