Lucky for us, this show will be Bad Luck’s album release for their fourth LP, Four. Lucky for us again, saxophonist Neil Welch and drummer Chris Icasiano received funding from the Office of Arts & Culture for this record to be made, so that we can enjoy its mellifluous immensity. The avant-jazz duo proficiently constructs their numbers with cymbal splashes of Zen and sax-looped echoes (Colin Stetson status) while seamlessly being able to combust into tirades of clustered cacophony. Briana Marela will bring ambient pop, and somesurprises a whimsical palate cleanser to the dirgeful Diminished Men and Spooky Action’s musings.
