9pm - Predicate Trio with Josh Sinton, Chris Hoffman & Tom Rainey
“Josh Sinton has been kicking (and screaming) around Brooklyn since 2004. Last year he realized that playing with cellist Chris Hoffman and drummer Tom Rainey is the most consistently fun thing he’s thought to do in a while. So he’s sticking with it and writing a few more things for the trio to play. He’s got a new record coming out with another of his trios (musicianer) and you can find that also on planet internet (or on Iluso Records). If you come to this show, Sinton promises that it won’t be boring. Definitely not. Ever.”
