124 boundary st west end,
Another unbelievable night of music from Brisbane and around the world taking place AT NO CHARGE in the intimate surrounds of the concrete Forest, in chilled-out-but-not-completely-wasted, West End.
This week APSC hosts an ELISION preview session, featuring two of the worlds finest radical saxophonists, a special performance of the music of Maverick composer John Rodgers, plus two local artists at the opposite ends of the electro-acoustic improvisation spectrum.

accessible. One of the central figures in

and original saxophone players in the universe. A member of such groups as
Bucketrider, Elision and currently lecturer in
Richard Haynes performing John Rodgers 'Ciacco' (1999)
