Weekly Feature: Being Experimental in NYC

Weekly Feature: Being Experimental in NYC

A few days before I started writing this article, I learned of a serious fight involving NYC drummer Kevin Shea and the son of the owner/talent buyer of an East Village venue, iconic for its historical interest in avant jazz and experimental music. The owner wanted the musicians to pay her $50 bucks since no one came to hear them. The owner’s son punched Kevin in his left eye when he refused. The musicians chased him into Tompkins Square Park. Read Valerie Kuhne's essay 'The Sporting Life: Being Experimental in NYC' here.
