Maggie Nicols, Fred Frith and Susan Alcorn

Nameless Sound presents a trio of treasured avant-garde artists

Nameless Sound presents three experimental musicians, Maggie Nicols, Fred Frith and Susan Alcorn, in their first-ever collaborative work. Houston native Alcorn is celebrated by country music and experimental sound fans alike for her twisted twang. Frith has rocked avant-garde style with the likes of John Zorn and Brian Eno. Nicols is a Scottish improvisational vocalist who combined her talents for theater, music and humor to become a premiere performer on the European free improvisation scene in the 1960s. Given these musicians’ extreme — and, more important, eccentric and distinct talents — the performance should make for quite the sight (and sound). You won’t want to miss a beat, provided there are any. 8 p.m. DiverseWorks, 1117 East Freeway. For information, call 713-928-5653 or visit www.namelesssound.org. Free to $13.


Sun., Feb. 15, 8 p.m., 2009
