April 19, 2017 Bonnie Barnett Group

Vocalist Barnett was joined by Dan Clucas (trumpet), Richard Wood (woodwinds), Hal Onserud (bass), and Garth Powell (drums) for an evening of improvised music.

Her performance incorporated texts by Los Angeles poet Dorothea Grossman and Dadaists Hans Arp, Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, and Richard Huelsenbeck.

The video of this show was low quality, so guitarist/video editor Scott Heustis used it as the foundation for a found-footage collage. Thanks to Scott, Bonnie, and her band for their contributions!

Barnett also co-hosts “Trilogy” on KXLU 88.9 Wednesday nights at 9pm, which is the perfect thing to listen to on your way home from Soundwaves.
