In the culminating performance of Town Hall’s second three-month In Residency program, Artist in Residence Geo and Scholar in Residence David Mitsuo Nixon present the creative results of their terms—so creative, in one case, you could become a permanent part of music history! For his part, Nixon, who has taught classes at UW including Music & Philosophy and Philosophical Explorations of Science Fiction, presents a philosophical talk called “Thoughts About the Meaning of Life (and Death) from a Philosopher Who Just Became a Dad,” based on his forthcoming book (and his new baby), with music from his alt-bluegrass trio The Half Brothers. And Geo plans a listening session featuring brand-new music from his frequent collaboration with LA rapper Bambu—and an audience-participation segment he’ll record for a new album. Presented by Town Hall as part of its Artist/Scholar in Residence series. Media sponsorship provided by The Stranger’s A&P.
