Percussionist Tim Daisy and clarinetist/saxophonist Ken Vandermark will be putting on a show at AAK on July 28 at 7:00. The Chicago-based duo is going to put on a hell of a show with their avant-garde jazz improv, and we hope to see you there! Suggested donation is $5-10.
From their press release:

“Performing as a duo they concentrate on investigating the possibilities of free improvisation through their combined experiences working within a wide variety of improvised and composed musical settings over the years. Drawing on numerous influences including: American and European free jazz, experimental rock, free improvisation, soul and funk as well as 20th century contemporary music and visual art, they combine their creative energies to further explore and assemble sound in an improvised context. Tim and Ken aim to make each performance unique by tirelessly searching for new ways to keep the music fresh and encouraging each other to play beyond their potential.”
