A Light Sleeper
Ulrich Schleicher

Loom is a community of refugee women living in Chicago who weave together their creativity and cultural traditions to make and sell beautiful handmade products. These women have fled their country of origin because of a credible fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, political opinion, national origin, or social group. More information on refugee resettlement services here.

ExtraOcular is: Matthew Shelton’s mbira/kalimba songs, performed with cellist Nora Barton and guitarist Alexis Dionissopoulos. An odd assortment of instruments performing original tunes rooted in folk, pop and blues structures, with unpredictable bursts of spaced-out improvisation.

A Light Sleeper is an ever-evolving quartet exploring collaborative composition from the bottom up, featuring breezy intertwining melodies from saxophonist Maria Elena Hernandez and violist Traci Newhouse, D. Pennepalli’s idiosyncratic guitar lines, and drummer Matthew Jung’s graceful clockwork core.

Doors at 7pm. $10 suggested donation, RAFFLE prize of lovely Loom products
