Spotlight on Presenter Partner Events in April
On April 9 at 8 pm, the Firehouse Space
presents Sarah Manning's Underworld Alchemy
: "Two silver altos with utterly distinct sounds. Electric bass to agitate and ignite. Drums and percussion to stir, rumble and clank like a furnace in a subterranean laboratory. The secret of alchemy is mastery of the illusion. We'll take you somewhere in the dark – and leave you to find the way out." More information at http://thefirehousespace.org
