Come and join us for our monthly celebration of live music and film. This will be a special and wonderful experimental event with Inner Ear Brigade & Faust. No cover.

Faust ~ 1994 film directed by Jan Švankmajer. It merges live-action footage with stop-motion footage, puppetry and claymation. It borrows and blends elements from the story as told by Goethe and Christopher Marlowe with traditional folk renditions. It has a distinctly Modernist, Absurdist, Kafkaesque feel, especially with the setting in Prague. The tone is dark but humorous.

Inner Ear Brigade ~ IEB is an ensemble of musicians based in the San Francisco Bay Area who play a unique mix of progressive rock, jazz, and experimental pop, all delivered through their originally detailed compositions and arrangements. The music is “fun, happy, accessible, and proggy.” Steeped with a vintage analog sensibility, effects processing, and synthesizers, IEB crafts their sounds from “ RIO elements (Rock In Opposition), Canterbury (Sound), and Zappa”.
IEB is Bill Wolter (guitar and compositions), Ivor Holloway (sax), Andrew Jamieson (keyboards), Stephen Wright (bass), Alison Niedbalski (vocals) and Christopher Lauf (drums).
