Drink This Music

In a revolutionary new experience, Drink This Music, the flagship show of the Eat Drink Listen Festival, premieres at 4 Hands Brewery. In an effort to bridge the fine art of libations and improvised music, New York City based Trio TBD will perform hair-raising, jazz-tinged improvisations while local Barmen Joel Clark, Matt Obermark, and Brandon Cavanagh improvise cocktails influenced by the music in real time. Developed and led by ex-bartender/current concert trombonist David Whitwell, the show will constitute a one hour and fifteen minute ride of unbroken jazz and inebriation, allowing audience members to taste music and hear cocktails. Each ticket includes a specially brewed beer from 4 Hands, four cocktails, and light fare provided by Dave Bailey’s 5th Wheel.

Videre Sonus

San Francisco based sculptor Aran Jones and New York based trombonist David Whitwell have collaborated for the last year on a series of sonically reactive sculptures and graphic scores, entitled Videre Sonus. Sonically reactive sculptures are performed on by bass trombonist Felix Del Tredici, percussionist Joe Tucker, and Trio TBD. Musicians perform at, through and on sculptures, as well as “perform” paintings which were created with the intention of sonic realization. Room sized scores of music will be interpreted by these improvising musicians, providing an all-encompassing experience accompanied by a firkin collaboration between Sump Coffee and 4 Hands brewing Company – Coffee Chocolate Milk Stout – and light fare from Brennan’s.
