John Zorn's Stone Commissioning Series presents: Dan Weiss and Miles Okazaki

6pm doors • 7pm show


John Zorn’s Stone Commissioning Series celebrates The Stone, Zorn’s revolutionary venue “dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde,” which served as a vital spot for new music in the East Village for over a decade and now continues in the Glass Box Theatre at the New School. Held on the last Wednesday of every month, National Sawdust honors the spirit of The Stone, hosting artists selected by John Zorn presenting world premieres of new works.

This month’s installment of the Stone Commissioning Series features drummer and composer Dan Weiss, whose music has a “simmering intensity” and “gets more beautiful the more carefully you listen” (Stereogum), with guitarist Miles Okazaki. They premiere a new piece by Weiss, to be recorded for a collaborative album later this year.
