Jewelry Rash is Brian Mumford's (Dragging and Ox Through Water, Jackie-O-Motherfucker, Sunfoot) wildly divergent solo noise electronics set propelled primarily by his homemade oscillators. Ben Kates is a saxophonist originally from Massachusetts where he first started pla...ying saxophone in the 4th grade. Kates lived in New York City for ten years where he played in hardcore punk bands and the improvising duo Fire&Flux. He moved to Portland in 2006 where he has played in the groups Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly!, the Naked Future, Barges, Always Assuming Homo Sapiens Avoid Destruction, as well as in a longstanding collaboration with John Niekrasz and Brian Mumford called Thicket. He has played with John Gruntfest, Gino Robair, Tatsuya Nakatani, Wally Shoup, Urs Leimgruber, John Weise and Smegma among others. In addition to being a musician, Kates works with students with emotional and behavioral disorders and sits on the boards of the Creative Music Guild and the Independent Publishing Resource Center.

The Outset Series (a project co-produced by Revival and the Creative Music Guild) is Portland's only recurring event for creative, improvised music. This series at Revival Drum Shop actively presents experimental, avant-garde, and creative improvised music in a unique setting. We aim to provide musicians of diverse approaches within the genres of electronic, improvised, free jazz, and experimental new music with a regular performance opportunity while fostering a community in Portland that supports this music. This is the place to come to see the best Portland has to offer, to network and meet fellow fans and musicians, and support a critical element of the Portland music scene. 1/18, $5 (100% goes to the musicians), 8PM, Revival Drum Shop.
(Music ends by 10 - don't be late.)
