Tuesday May 25th @ the Make It Up Club

Some volatile free jazz explosions at MIUC this week. Local tenor firebrand, Brett Evans, makes his debut with some veterans of Australia's fire-music scene. Lots of powerful horns, and a totally tough rhythm section, promises some robust and ecstatic music. And, a quartet of young, avant jazz vurtuosi, expanding their palates as Dudes with Trowels. With 2 kits, lots of toys, and a playful, fluxus performance aesthetic, replete with costumes, expect some daring extrapolations.

Brett Evans (tenor saxophone), Andy Sugg (saxophones), Kris Wanders (tenor saxophone), Tom Fryer (guitar), Rory Brown (double bass), Damien Ellis (drumkit) and Adrian Sheriff (bass trombone)

Dudes With Trowels featuring: James Bowers (dressed as a chicken, melodica, synth, sound wizard keyboard), Ben Harrison (dressed as a banana, pocket trumpet, harmonica, whistle, hand bells), Gareth Thomson (dressed as a shaman, drums and toys), James McLean (dressed as a freak, drums and toys)
