This just in: Saxophonist Bhob Rainey (pictured) will return to St. Louis for a performance at 8:30 p.m. this Thursday, December 23 at the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center. According to Rainey's website, this will be the eighth year in a row that the Boston-based improvisor has done a pre-Christmas show at LNAC.
Working with extended techniques, multiphonics and standing resonant frequencies, Rainey 'plays the room' more literally than any performer you will ever see," says the news release from LNAC. Billed as a special holiday show of experimental music," the evening also will feature sets from St. Louis composer/performer Jack Callahan and epicycle, the project headed by LNAC's Mark Sarich. Admission is $5 at the door.
