Tues. Nov. 27 - Pauline Oliveros and her TINTINNABULATE HARMONICA BAND!!

On Tuesday night, Nov. 27, follow your Thanksgiving weekend with an amazing night of music presented by ASAC. Three sets of music for a mere $5 suggested donation. More is always appreciated if you can afford it. All of the money will go to Pauline and her band. If for some reason you're not familiar with Pauline's reputation and/or body of work, please consider attending this show! She is truly one of the world's most esteemed and accomplished improvisors and experimental musicians. At age 80, She rec
ently had a 10CD retrospective box set released on Important Records. To say that she is a legend and inspiration to all experimental musicians would be an incredible understatement. On this special night, she will bring a brand new ensemble out for their debut live performance!!
