A black and white image of five people taken from the waist up, three men and two women, standing next to each other in a row. The man on the left has dark hair and a beard and mustache. He is wearing a buttoned-up sweater over a buttoned-up shirt. The man next to him has dark hair, a mustache and goatee. He is wearing glasses and a dark t-shirt. The woman next to him has dark hair that goes to her shoulders. She is wearing glasses, a necklace and a dark, long-sleeved shirt. The woman next to her has long, dark, straight hair. She is wearing a long-sleeve, dark sweater. The man next to her has salt and pepper colored hair, mustache and goatee. He is wearing a dark, long-sleeved t-shirt.

We welcome Code Girl, the latest project of guitarist and composer Mary Halvorson, and her first project for which she has composed both lyrics and music. The band has been described as “…a bold experiment in song form” by the New York Times. Deftly interpreted by Amirtha Kidambi (vocals), Ambrose Akinmusire (trumpet), Michael Formanek (bass) and Tomas Fujiwara (drums), the music synthesizes influences of jazz, folk and improvisation to create an original take on songwriting.

Free parking will be available in The Warhol lot.

Co-presented with City of Asylum.
