The avant-garde improvisational musical acts The Zero Dollar Trio and Parlay Droner play Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, June 4. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.
The Zero Dollar Trio performances are expressions of free improvisation. No two performances are ever the same. From jazz to post-punk to electronic to beyond. The Zero Dollar Trio features Nick Di Maria on trumpet, melodica and electronics; Jeff Cedrone on guitar, synth and electronics; and Mike Rasimas on drums and percussion.
Parlay Droner is a local modern renaissance man of the avant-garde: illustrator/improv noisemaker/poet/painter/soundbreaker; member of AMOD Records, Filthybroke Recordings, SPLNSHNTS, the rifles repeating, Light Upon Blight. He offers up a constellation of beats/tape loops/noise/live improv/ink&paint/unprose&nonpoem.

Sonic wizard Parlay Droner is neck deep in projects and releases right now, and the fruits of these labors are sure to break your ears hearts as well as your ears drums! Big ups to Quantum Wampum for putting this little gem out… …Parlay is the man to watch, as his catalog grows his grasp on his sound strengthens and becomes more realized.
