CHRIS CORSANO 

When: Sat., April 14 2012
Chris Corsano has established himself as one of the avant-garde’s most prolific artists over the past decade. His list of achievements reads like a who’s-who of underground cool. There’s Björk and Thurston Moore, but also Jim O'Rourke and Jandek. The percussionist is all over the map, as comfortable exploring free jazz as he is psychedelic rock. His collaborations with saxophonist Paul Flaherty are uncompromisingly raw and electrifying. If you’re a fan of groove exploration, Corsano's work with guitarist Heather Leigh Murray under the Jailbreak moniker produced a noise-rock beast in The Rocker. And every now and then, Corsano flies solo. This might seem like a peculiar configuration for a drummer, but he boasts the uncanny ability to transform his flailing into what sounds like a full-blown ensemble. He's a real octopus behind the kit. What’s more, his liberal definition of percussion – he plays everything from butter knives to plastic funnels -- produces a dizzying breadth of textures and timbres. With Drake, Henry, Scheible Trio and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. 9 p.m. Tickets: $5. – Justin Farrar
