So Percussion

April 7

Sometimes, the most interesting art revisits our childhood behaviors, whether it's scribbling on walls or banging loudly on the nearest or weirdest surface possible. The Brooklyn-based percussion quartet So Percussion takes childlike curiosity and volume to a highly calculated level, playing complex and experimental compositions on traditional percussion instruments as well as toy pianos, pipes, flower pots, tea cups, and even an amplified cactus. The group has collaborated and appeared with the likes of Dan Deacon, The Dirty Projectors, Matmos, and Wilco's Glenn Kotche. So Percussion will perform pieces by contemporary composers Oscar Bettison, Bryce Dessner, and Steve Reich. Catch a pre-concert talk with the performers at 7, and for an extra five bucks you can listen to a bonus track and hang with the So Percussion dudes at The Bun Shop. 8 p.m., An Die Musik Live, 409 N. Charles St., (410) 385-2638,, $10-$15. (Maura Callahan)
