A new music series has begun at the fashionable Rye Restaurant in Williamsburg. The AE Randolph Series is happening every Wednesday curated by bassist Will McEvoy, and will feature his group Curriculum on a pretty regular basis. I caught the first concert last week, it's a very nice sounding room and there's good food and beer as well. Curriculum played a set of Ornette Coleman compositions, and then Kenny Warren and Tony Malaby played a mind-bending improvised duo set.
You can keep up with the schedule at Rye Restaurant here.
I also saw the band Paris Monster play at Rockwood Stage 2 last week, I had been meaning to check them out for a while and they did not disappoint!
