Cosmic Diaspora 930pm $8

"Cosmic Diaspora project features Jake Marmer (poetry), John Schott (guitars), and Joshua Horowitz (piano/accordion) who is the founding member/composer of Veretski Pass, which is hands down the greatest West Coast klezmer band around. He also is one of the organizers of KlezCalifornia festival. The project brings together experimental poetry, jazz, and klezmer in eclectic, fluid, and improvised manner. Science fiction, Jewish mysticism... 
....exilic and immigrant experience, myth and ritual all come together in heady and playful admixtures. Marmer's work was hailed as a “soulful narrative line in counterpoint to … language-drunk abstractions” (The Jewish Week), “experience of mystic pleasures … freshly contemporary” (Shofar), & a “thought provoking debut” (All About Jazz). John Schott is a Grammy-nominated, legendary Bay Area guitar player and composer. Joshua Horowitz is the co-founder of Bay Area's foremost klezmer collective Veretski Pass band, and has performed and recorded with Theodore Bikel, The Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Rubin and Horowitz, Brave Old World, Adrienne Cooper and Frank London, among others."
