See one third of Medeski Martin & Wood at John Zorn’s National Sawdust series

23


High on the list of important music venues in NYC that have come and gone is John Zorn’s The Stone, which carved out a dependable niche for the city’s best experimental, electronic and avant-garde musicians. The composer’s venue hasn’t necessarily closed, though—it’s just moved from its physical location to a series of residencies around New York, including National Sawdust, where he programs one evening a month. On Wednesday, Jan. 30, he’s presenting John Medeski, the keyboardist of the mega-popular Medeski Martin & Wood, and tickets are just $25. If that doesn’t strike a chord, take a minute to check out how diverse the programming is at this Williamsburg arts center. This week alone, you can hear Jorie Graham, Colm Tóibín, and Laurie Anderson read and perform; see drag collective Switch ‘n’ Play; enjoy a liquid light show; hear singer Queen Esther, a BB contributor; or catch a dance/opera about a coal miner whose eyes become lasers when he strikes a magic meteor.  Did that last one intrigue you? The first show of the night already sold out, so act fast.
