This June, drummer/producer/International Anthem artist Makaya McCraven will settle into a weekly residency at legendary Chicago music outpost The Hideout. Over the course of four Tuesdays (6, 13, 20 & 27) Makaya will roll out four unique ensembles featuring local friends and a few out-of-town guests, all together endeavoring on two sets of in-the-moment improvisation each week. IARC tape will be rolling.
In the tradition of the way we've been doing things since Junius Paul's residency in December, Makaya's two ensemble sets on stage will be buffered (before and between) with hardware sets in The Hideout's front bar, curated by King Hippo, featuring a different beatmaker each week. Lineup for those as follows:
