New Weekly Series! – Glacial Wednesdays @ Dragonfly Lounge
Dragonfly Lounge (401 E Washington, under Bellini) – doors 8:30 – suggested donation $3
Improvised music trio GLACIER is starting a weekly residency at the Dragonfly Lounge, Madison’s newest music venue. While there are several excellent weekly residencies in town (particularly the New Breed jam session every Tuesday at the Cardinal), this will be the first weekly series in town in over ten years to focus primarily on improvised music. Each week will feature a special guest to round out the ensemble for the second set, beginning this week with Trevor Saint on extended range glockenspiel; next week violist Jen Clare Paulson will join the band. The Dragonfly is offering some pretty incredible drink specials, like half off house wine and rail drinks, so in addition to being a great hang, it will be the best spot in town for cocktails on a Wednesday night. Scott Gordon of the Isthmus wrote a great article about it here.
