All of the music that night was last minute. I left the Vanguard and walked over to BPC. I found out they do this every month with different artists. Awesome!
That was my first time seeing any of Matana Roberts Coin Coin. I had the idea it was way out there, but I didn’t think so. I am probably a little jaded, though. It was solo sax and very well done. She was already on when I got there, but I got over a half hour.
Then, I stayed for about 20-30 minutes of the Okkyung Lee trio. That was good avant-noise. I was really enjoying it, but I had to leave at 11:40 so I could still get some good sleep. That strategy worked well. I was only a little tired the next day.
