Further Sounds comes back with
Further Sounds comes back with its fall instalment. This series celebrates those explorers that wander beyond the edges of melody. In case you didn’t know by now, Dallas has a very active and rich –yet not always visible enough– experimental scene; we’ve invited some of its most talented artists to showcase what’s going on in the local outskirts of sound. Don’t miss the opportunity to be fascinated by the sound explorations of Jacob Wick, Quartet Fandatan, and Blendways.
Austin poet Derrick C. Brown will open the show with a performance of his sassy poems at 7.30p. More info here.
First music set to start at 8.30p.
