 “Man Forever” @ Dreamland

810 E. Market St.

8pm, $10

Event description provided by Leo Weekly Staffpicks: “Percussion is the end-all and be-all for New York’s John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) who, along with collaborators, has created and propelled Man Forever. Working with guest musicians, Colpitts looks to use drumming as an exploration of music, rather than just as ancillary musicianship to other instruments. His most recent album, Ryonen, is a collaboration of Colpitts and So Percussion, the highly acclaimed quartet of Yale alumni based in New York. Man Forever is known for being experimental, and Colpitts has also worked with other, similarly experimental artists; he’s performed with Yo La Tengo, Spiritualized, Akron/Family and William Basinski, and he was a founding member of Brooklyn psychedelic noise-rock band Oneida. Opening for Millions is Cincinnati improvisational saxophonist Jon Lorenz. —Ian Ording”
