nada (but please tip!)


The Art of Skatch

Sherman Street Studios, 16 Sherman St., San Francisco

This will be the closing event of a few-week visual exhibit of the invented instruments of Tom Nunn. Reception at 7pm, and performances starting at 8pm. The performances will involve the duo, T.D. Skatchit (Tom Nunn + David Michalak, playing the aforementioned invented instruments!), and they will be joining forces with three different sets of collaborators: 1. Chris Brown (electronics), 2. Dean Santomieri (spoken word), and 3. the vocal "choir" of Ron Heglin, Kattt Atchley, and Lorin Benedict. I can't wait for this!! :)
