What a weekend!

I'll talk about Electronic Music Midwest (which was last weekend) in a future post. This coming weekend, though, has many Batzner-oriented activities. Feel free to mix and match based on your geography.

Friday, Oct 24, the Kansas City Electronic Music Alliance is presenting Carnival Daring-Do at la Esquina in Kansas City, MO.

Sunday, Oct 26, the Cadillac Moon Ensemble is playing Goodnight, Nobody at the Jan Hus Church (351 E. 74th Street) in NYC as part of the Vox Novus Composer's Voice Series.

Sorry about the shameless self-promotion, but this getting performances thing is pretty cool. I'm all for it. Tune in next time when I talk about other people's music.
