* Irreversible Entanglements / Fargo Nissim Tbakhi

Rhizome DC
6950 Maple St NW
Washington D.C. 20012
$20 (Plus $2.45 Fee)

The free jazz and poetry ensemble Irreversible Entanglements performs charged, enthralling, flayed-nerve endings raw, collectively improvised music. Fronted by poet Camae Ayewa, better known as Moor Mother, the group delivers gut punching music aimed to liberate the mind and soul [Disclosure: CapitalBop’s Director of Presenting Luke Stewart plays bass in Irreversible Entanglements]. Ayewa rides the pulses and roar of the band to deliver searing rhymes and spoken word that speaks to centuries and generations of Black trauma and experience.

They headline a powerful night of performance at Rhizome D.C. – or just outside the building in an outdoor setting – with queer Palestinian-American performance artist and writer Fargo Nissim Tbakhi.

Advanced tickets required.
