YESOD  (9 p.m.)

Yesod dissect, digest, and reshape their individual influences and experiences into a uniquely familiar musical sum. Assembled in Seattle by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Bill Wolford and Kurdish percussionist Ahmad Yousefbeigi in 2010 and later joined by songwriter/bassist Jerry Schroeder, Yesod are intent on creating improvisational music that conveys their thoughts, emotions, and heritage through a sincere and honest musical vocabulary. [Yesod played a bang-up show as part of our TransLucid series a few months ago and we’re delighted to welcome them back!]


Fundamental Forces is an instrumental quartet that dances a balance between the dark and the light. The ensemble is fronted by electric guitarist Rik Wright and longtime co-conspirator James DeJoie, who utilizes an impressive variety of wind instruments with great facility. The two are joined by the adept and adventurous backline of esteemed double-bassist Geoff Harper and celebrated drummer/percussionist Greg Campbell. The group’s collective musical presence is hauntingly beautiful, thoughtful, and evocative, and their performances effectively pull together the two extremes of acoustic and electric jazz without sacrificing the crystalline character of either.


With haunting vocals, penetrating lyrics, and angular musical backing, Bone Cave Ballet submerge their audiences in the tidal force of tense and eruptive waters that Joseph Conrad could write sharks into.
