Geo & David Mitsuo Nixon: Residents’ World Premieres/Finale

Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $5.

Arts & Culture, In-Residence

Nixon Film Strip

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 Geo credit Canh Solobaby), 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.
Advance tickets are $5 at or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
