Olympia Jazz Central presents Dmitri Matheny Group at Rhythm & Rye

Event: 
Mon, 08/31/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Renowned jazz artist Dmitri Matheny will celebrate the international release of Sagebrush Rebellion, his tenth album as a leader, on Monday, August 31 at 8:00 pm at Rhythm & Rye in Olympia Washington.

The Olympia Jazz Central-sponsored appearance, part of a 100-city tour of the United States, will showcase selections from the new album, balancing fresh, original works with familiar jazz classics, hard bop, west coast cool and beloved standards from the Great American Songbook.

The Dmitri Matheny Group, directed by flugelhornist and composer Matheny, features Brian Kinsella on keyboard, Jeff Johnson on bass and Greg Williamson on drums.

“The Dmitri Matheny Group is a cohesive and seamless unit,” writes All About Jazz, “serving up equal parts soulful expression, caressing phrases, imaginative asides, and dedicated lyricism.”

Sister Spit at Evergreen - Artists' Lecture Series

Event: 
Wed, 04/15/2015 - 11:00am - 1:00pm

From today's inbox:

Sister Spit: Wednesday, April 15th,
11:00-1:00 pm, Lecture Hall 1

Sister Spit began in San Francisco in the 1990s as a weekly, girls-only open mic that was an alternative to the misogyny-soaked poetry open mics popular around the city (and the nation) at that time. Inspired by two-bit punk bands who managed to go on the road without hardly knowing how to play their instruments, Sister Spit became the first all-girl poetry roadshow at the end of the 90s, and toured regularly with such folks as Eileen Myles, Marci Blackman, Beth Lisick, and Nomy Lamm. The tour was revived as Sister Spit: The Next Generation in 2007, and has toured the United States annually since, with authors and performers such as Chinaka Hodge, Dorothy Allison, Lenelle Moise, Justin Vivian Bond, and many others. In this next incarnation, out of respect to the changing gender landscape of our queer and literary communities, Sister Spit welcomes artists of all genders, so long as they mesh with the tour’s historic vibe of feminism, queerness, humor, and provocation.
