Tues, Aug 30 at 8pm $20

Dharma Boogie at Its Best

    Original Beat icon Michael McClure, who penned Janis Joplin's immortal "Mercedes Benz," and Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who created one of rock's most memorable instrumental lines (think "Light My Fire"), join forces with the phenomenal saxophonist George Brooks (Summit, Bombay Jazz, Etta James), legendary bassist Kai Eckhardt (John McLaughlin, Garaj Mahal), and drummer Jay Lane (Charlie Hunter, Bob Weir) for a evening of sophisticated anti-politics, elegant improvisation, American haiku, and jazz-drenched dharma boogie.
