ROULETTE Benefit Concert
ALL TICKETS $20
Written and premiered in 1984, "Cobra" is a classic in the circles of new music, having been performed innumerable times. In fact, composer and "prompter" John Zorn says in the liners that it his most-often-performed composition -- no mean feat considering his prolific output. It is no wonder, though: There is a mischievous, cartoonish quality to it that epitomizes Zorn's style but also makes for continually fascinating listening. Based on the composer's secretive "game pieces," "Cobra" is a fun-filled, mystical, blindfolded ride down a dark alley that circles back every few yards. (Steven Loewy, All Music Guide). Come support Roulette for this rare performance with John Zorn, Ikue Mori, Jim Staley, and more!
