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 music at Rhizome, whose intimate house-show setting should be packed to the gills. Brian Settles, the expansive saxophonist, joins drummer Warren “Trae” Crudup to play in a duo. Opening the night is the free duo of french horn player Abe Mamet and violinist Jamie Sandel [Disclosure: CapitalBop’s Managing Director].
