Mengelberg/Lewis near Princeton: May 5

Dutch pianist Misha Mengelberg will be playing at John Zorn's new space The Stone in New York (Ave. C and 2nd St.) this Thursday, May 5, with trombonist George Lewis and bassist Brad Jones. There are two shows, 8 and 10. Tickets are $15 (at the door only).

Why do I describe this as "near Princeton"? I'm coming in for the Rutgers Epistemology Conference and for a commenter's birthday, and I'm staying with that commenter in Princeton. I'll probably be able to make the 10 pm show. But I won't have a car, and if anyone is planning to drive in from Princeton for this show--and you should, it'll likely be absolutely fantastic--a ride back would be super.

(Or, if anyone reading this is going to be at Rutgers, see you there. Or if you're going to be at the show but don't live in Princeton. Be at the show. Really.)

Just to be clear, the commenter is a commenter on the blog, not on the epistemology papers.

Mengelberg is curating this month's shows at the Stone, inne?

Yes, although the shows end May 15 or so b/c the place is closing for renovations. George Lewis looks like he might be the best guest. (I'm going to have to make sure I can actually get to this show--it involves an arbitrarily large number of trains.)

Happy Birthday to Matt's Mom? :)
