@ Duet | 9pm | $7 | all ages
-Jamison Williams + Thomas Milovac (FL)
-Vernacular String Trio

On this tour, bassist Thomas Milovac backs up Jamison Williams as he tears apart and pieces back together compositions found in classic Disney films. The glue that binds these sounds is imbued with dissonance and frenetic playing.

-Brain Transplant
-Dave Stone Ensemble
-Eric Donte
-NNN Cook

Rapper Eric Dontè leads many of the usual suspects in Mr. Ben's NOiSE series, which features a video installation by Chad Eivins (Foveal Media aka Chizmo.TV) in the main floor at Blank Space. Mainstays such as Brain Transplant and NNN Cook fill out the all-local lineup which includes the revolving cast of the Dave Stone Ensemble.

@ Kismet | 9pm | $5 | all ages
-Ofir Klemperer (Cincinatti, OH)
-Chelsea Gray
-Alex Cunningham

Violinist Alex Cunningham (of Vernacular String Trio) pulls a hat-trick by performing his third show of the week, this time in support of Cincinnati-based synth artist Ofir Klemperer. Chelsea Gray builds a wall of droning sound through careful bow work on the guitar and subtle pedal manipulation.
