Blessing Moon concert this Thursday in SF

My Full Moon Concert Series which I'm curating for Outsound Presents and the Luggage Store Gallery moves on to the Blessing Moon concert this Thursday night.

At 8 pm we have Free Rein, focused on "earth music for space people". It's a new all-improv trio melding reeds/flutes, Danelectro 6 string bass, percussion, voice, cymbal, keyboard, and Theremin.

Brian Lucas from Free Rein says, "The surface area of the Moon is equal to that of Africa. The Moon is a spherical continent hanging in the sky. The Moon is the missing content of the Earth. Through the medium of gravity waves, the rocks of the Moon sing to the rocks of the Earth. Free Rein will spontaneously collaborate with the Moon in this endeavor, sculpting a sound that reflects back to Earth, playing tones that wax and wane through vibration, harmonic bodies phase shifting."

At 9 pm we'll have Valka, a battle of strings. Cellist Agnes Szelag & violinist Marielle Jakobsons say they'll unleash graphic scores and mood swings. With Noah Phillips on guitar, the trio's Blessing Moon rituals are inspired by ripe dreams and the balance between dark and light.

The Blessing Moon concert will happen at the Luggage Store Gallery, 1007 Market Street at 6th Street, San Francisco. Admission is $6.00 - $10.00 sliding scale, with no one turned away for lack of funds.
