Event details via Nick Moran of the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium:

Eight bands. Six hours of continuous live music. Four different venues on Madison’s ultra hip East Johnson Street. And no cover charges. These are the makings “Strollin’ East Johnson Street” presented this year by the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium and Prime Urban Properties. Now in its fourth year, this popular “jazz stroll” series features a staggered performance schedule that makes it easy for attendees to stroll from venue to venue and sample many different musical styles.

“Strollin’ East Johnson Street” is the tenth “jazz stroll” produced by the Jazz Consortium in a series that began three years ago at Schenk’s Corners on Madison’s East Side, and it’s been warmly embraced by each of its host communities. Once again, the Consortium’s Nick Moran has booked an intriguing mix of bands showcasing the wide range of instrumental and vocal jazz styles regularly available to Dane County audiences.

Strollin’ East Johnson is made possible by sponsorships from Prime Urban Properties as well as contributions from each host venue, free will contributions from Strollin’ attendees, grants from the John and Carolyn Peterson Charitable Foundation and Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission and promotional support from Isthmus, WORT-FM, and Wisconsin Public Radio.

EVIL GENIUS (LA) – tuba, guitar, drums

Brennan Connors & Stray Passage

Join us for an evening of Jazz Trios at Art In’s spacious gallery!

Evil Genius (Portland/Los Angeles) is a forward-marching experimental jazz trio formed in 2012. The band is made up of Max Kutner on guitars (Grandmothers of Invention, Magic Band, Alphonso Johnson), Stefan Kac on tuba (Milo Fine, Jon Armstong, Hammerstein) and Michael “Bonepocket” Lockwood on drums and percussion (Atomic Ape, Deradoorian, Matt Kivel). The band’s unique sound has drawn comparisons to groups as wide-ranging as the Minutemen, This Heat and Captain Beefheart to jazz figures like John McLaughlin, Steve Lacy, Henry Threadgill and many more. They have received acclaim from the New York City Jazz Record, Bad Alchemy, Los Angeles Jazz Station, Downtown Music Gallery, El Intruso and more. In the words of Larry Koonse, “this band can do it all–whether its in your face rock, free wheeling open improvisation, 20th century classical music, or jazz–they can pull it off and upend all of your expectations.” Their debut album, “Bitter Human” was released in late 2015 and available through Orenda Records in Los Angeles.

Welcome.

You have arrived at the spontaneous soundscapes of Evil Genius, just on the cusp of this dimension of sound and waiting to transcend to another. Sign in here.

Now you may enter. There’s no need to take off your jacket. Take a seat. Here, sip this iced tea. Or would you like a soda? No, there are no soy lattes. Don’t be ridiculous!

Now drink – it will calm your nerves.

You are now ready to begin.

You are now a participant in the experience. A series of experiments. Each experiment will uncover a new layer of understanding, a new level of intrigue.

It may vary for you depending on you – are you cautious? Are you adventurous?

Only time will tell.

We hope you enjoy your stay…
