Don Berman / Stephen Fandrich Duo (10 p.m.)
Don Berman is a ubiquitous, eclectic, and indefatigable character in the Seattle music world. A conservatory trained Midwestern percussionist turned longtime Seattle resident, and participant in what he calls the Seattle NOKUM (Northwest Outside Kreative Underground Musicians) scene, for this Zero-G show Don will be playing a freely improvised set with his esteemed colleague Stephen Fandrich on keyboards. Part of a family of piano innovators, Stephen Fandrich’s pianism is renowned throughout the Northwest in both classical and jazz circles. He has performed all around the Northwest and in Alaska, New York, Hawaii, Canada, Central Java, and Bali and has long been a key member of the Monktail Creative Music Concern.
