Tonight's Racer Sessions—the weekly out-jazz/improv night held every Sunday at Cafe Racer—should pique the interest of non-jazz heads and music-school nerds alike. New Orleans-based Hines/Zemanovic Duo will be hosting the night, performing their mesmerizing jazz-rock that sometimes verges on math-rock twinkly-ness and even prog-metal-like grandiosity. With heavy use of looping effects, guitarist Cliff Hines builds densely musical structures, weaving different sounds and rhythms together with drummer G Maxwell Zemanovic to create the "illusion of composition." The night is interactive (and free!), as are all Racer Sessions, so bring an instrument. Audience-only participation is welcome, too, so either way, come prepared to nerd out to some sublime out-jazz. BRITTNIE FULLER
