The influences of Todo Es range from the Latin Jazz of Cal Tjader and Charlie Byrd to Brazilian Samba and Bossa Nova, interpreted through unique instrumentation. A large repertoire of original material combines Afro-Cuban, Caribbean and Brazilian sounds with contemporary improvisation.

Tonight we have an exciting three-band bill featuring Diagram(s)-CEOs Inc-Wind Swept Planes!

Diagram(s): free-improvised, decontructed rock/noise with Kole Gralbraith (bass), Chris Gantt (drums) and Patrick Neill Gundran (guitar).

CEOs Inc: From the powerful spinx ashes, like warriors without borders. They started "Citizens on patrol" but soon decided they were executives, through and through. Pull out of the air a group of silence, Tuerk, cry, fragments, tears of the purest of emotions.

Wind Swept Planes: One person's attempt to express the ineffable. Acid drenched fever dreams and aural incantations.

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm. Cover charge by donation.
