If you’re looking for something interesting to do on a free night in New York City, look no further than seeing a performance at the Stone. The not-for-profit music space, founded in 2005 by avant-garde musician John Zorn, is dedicated to bringing experimental and avant-garde music straight to your face, twice a night, every night.
Every month the Stone’s calendar is handpicked by different guest curators, ensuring the venue’s eclectic sensibility, simultaneously having something for everyone and catering only to listeners willing to get really, really out there. Among April’s guest curators was the avant-garde bassist Bill Laswell, who performed select shows with the likes of Zorn himself, Milford Graves (of New York Art Quartet fame) and Bernie Worrell (of Parliament-Funkadelic fame). May’s guest curators include Annie Gosfield, Susie Ibarra, and Okkyung Lee, among others.
See you there.
