Upcoming Concerts

“When Nels Cline and Fred Frith played their first public duet it didn’t always sound like guitar music. It sounded, at times, like a sanitation truck’s trash compactor, like a collapsing carillon, like a slowed down train wreck. That’s the beauty of the Alternative Guitar festival…which features guitarists who don’t just pick and strum.”

- Jon Pareles, The New York Times

Our annual concerts will take place in June, 2018. We're excited to announce that Bill Frisell will be hosting an "invitational." For the first time ever he will invite guitarists to play with him and his rhythm section for two sets at Le Poisson Rouge on Thursday, June 21st. Stay tuned for ticket info.


We're also planning a workshop with Bill for Saturday, June 23rd.  Bill rarely teaches, so this is a treat.

Our second concert will take place on Friday, June 22nd at Nublu on the lower east side. Lineup to be announced soon.
