The final instalment of MIUC for March 2013 sees us play host to a full night of guitar and guitarish duos with a frequent and much-loved visitor to our stage - improviser, historian, visual artist and Hawaiian shirt collector Mike Cooper. As the man himself is incredibly multi-faceted, transitioning effortlessly between trad jazz, noise, exotica, ambience and many places in between, four divergent Melbournian string-slingers will be making it up with him - Dean Roberts with his gorgeous post-folk delicacy, Rod Cooper with his textural post-blues (and surname congruence), Ian Wadley with his emotively shambolic melodiousness and Trevelyan Clay with his simultaneous dismissal and embrace of all things musical (and Hawaiian shirt congruence).
