An evening of jazz with Adam Hopkins and company they celebrate the release of their latest album, Crickets!
Adam Hopkins’ Crickets is a head-on collision of the various musical worlds he has been a part of since becoming a bassist as a teenager. Now in his 30’s, Hopkins is an improviser and composer influenced by Tim Berne, Henry Threadgill, Michael Formanek, and Igor Stravinsky. Crickets takes those more recent musical influences and smashes them together with the bands of his youth like Nirvana, Pavement, and Fugazi. The forthcoming album may be at home in a record collection somewhere between the Nels Cline Singers and John Zorn’s Naked City, but the result is something uniquely Hopkins’ own. Set for release in October 2018, Crickets will be the first album produced by Out Of Your Head Records, a brand new Brooklyn-based record label dedicated to presenting adventurous music heavily complimented by original visual art.
