OBEY presents Joe McPhee (NY) / Andre Fenton / Hosta

January 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$20

This show sits at several intersections of curiosity. Featuring legendary New York free jazz saxophonist Joe McPhee, beloved spoken word champ Andre Fenton and the foraged-sample dronescapes of Hosta (aka Kayla Stevens). The third instalment of OBEY Convention’s off-season will open yet another portal for curious ears to catch some new ideas.

+++ Joe McPhee +++

At an exuberant 78 years young, still performing, collaborating and blowing minds on the regular, Joe brings a wealth of spirit and depth of breath that surpasses players a quarter his age. Since his era-defining 1970 LP Nation Time, that fuses civil rights shout-outs with cosmic out-grooves, McPhee has been an essential player across genres, scenes and nations. Equally at home in jazz, soul, noise, punk, improv and more, McPhee’s soulful dedication and approach defies classification and transcends limitations.

+++ Andre Fenton +++

He was previously a member at large on Spoken Word Canada and currently on the board of directors within the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia. He has won awards in both filmmaking and spoken word poetry and an author of two books, Ode to Teen Angst and Worthy of Love.

+++ Hosta +++

Hosta is the solo noise/drone project of Kayla Stevens. Sounds like anti-music meets horror soundscapes. Improvisations using electronics and foraged samples.
