Kamasi Washington

Brainfeeder-signed jazz musician and Kendrick Lamar/Thundercat collaborator Kamasi Washington is on tour now, and begins his two-night stay in NYC tonight (8/24) with 8 PM and 10:30 sets at the Blue Note and does it again on Tuesday (8/25). Tables for all four are sold out, but you can still reserve a spot at the bar.

His tour continues into the fall, and includes a return to NYC for a CMJ on October 15 at BRIC House. It's the first night of the venue's JazzFest Marathon, and also features Dessy Di Lauro's Neo-Ragtime, Dawn of Midi, Nir Felder, Kris Bowers, Brandee Younger, Takuya Kuroda, Ben Williams & Sound Effect, Donny McCaslin, and DJ Rich Medina. Tickets are on sale now, and the first 25 CMJ badge-holders will be admitted.
