Doors at 8pm.
A little bit about Jesse Manley and His Band:
Jesse Manley's music has a unique sound, rooted in traditional folk music and verse, but seeking to re-invent a time-honored sound by blending a menagerie of historical genres with his own haunting voice.
Manley is driven by the creative process, and is bolstered and inspired by working with a variety of different artists most notably Garrett Ammon of Wonderbound (formerly Ballet Nouveau Colorado). With collaboration at the core of many of his projects, he is able to make his artwork a richer experience for his listeners. He has a passion for working with dance, film, literature, and many other forms of art.
A little bit about Nick Jaina:
Nick Jaina is a musician and writer from Portland, Oregon.
He is a co-founder and musical director of the Satellite Ballet and Collective in New York City. He has composed music for ballets and contemporary dances with that group, featuring dancers from the New York City Ballet and Juilliard. Their most recent performance was two sold-out shows at Brooklyn Academy of Music in May 2014. Of that show, the New York Times wrote, "[The} pure, pungent, earthy music for strings, piano, and percussion... was the most physically bracing part of the night."
Get It While You Can is his first book. A section of it will be featured in an upcoming issue of McSweeney's Quarterly.
