It’s probably a pretty rare occurrence that New York City residents turn to D.C. for help, advice, or anything else when it comes to cutting-edge culture. But lo and behold, I just got word that Silver Spring’s Cuneiform Records has been asked by John Zorn to curate two weeks of concerts at that nonprofit haven for experimental music in NYC, The Stone.
The really shocking part is this: Cuneiform’s stint as curator will be from November 15-30, 2011. That’s right… Zorn and The Stone are planning two and a half years in advance. Hopefully the ridiculously long lead time will let some of Cuneiform’s overseas artists secure funding for travel so they can make a stateside appearance.
Congrats to Cuneiform for scoring what seems to be a pretty prestigious gig.
