Sunday, June 2 • White Rabbit • 513 N 36th St. in Fremont, Seattle • 8 p.m. • no cover • 21+
Please join the Zero-G organizers as we welcome a new member to our ranks. John Seman has joined the Zero-G collective as we re-launch the concert series at The White Rabbit in the Fremont neighborhood.
The bill for the evening includes:
GRIDHOPPER (8 p.m.)
Grid Hopper is a fully instrumental progressive rock band. Hailing from the vibrant Pacific Northwest music scene, Grid Hopper fuses classic progressive rock elements with newer mathematical and experimental aspects to create a completely original musical style. They have been compared to notable groups such as King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Jethro Tull, Dream Theater, Opeth, and many more, but always “with a twist”.
BIG CRINKLY TRIO (9 p.m.)
Big Crinkly Trio was formed in 2010 by Jim Knodle, Doug Lilla and Pete Turner, three musicians who have a long history, but hadn’t played together for some time. The band consists of the slightly unusual trio instrumentation of trumpet, bass and drums with each member trying to maintain balance with the other two. The material they present consists of original music by all three members in addition to pieces by Monk, Steve Swallow, Carla Bley, Bill Frisell, Dave Holland and others. Mixing written material with improvisation in old and new ways the band strives for a continuing expansion of ideas and vocabulary…really just a humble attempt to make music live and breathe.
ASK THE AGES TRIO (10 p.m.)
Ask the Ages is a Seattle based avant-jazz band. Formed in 2010, the group includes: Greg Campbell (drums and percussion), Brian Heaney (guitar), and John Seman (bass). Influences are Sonny Sharrock, Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. And Black Sabbath.
