Heart of Darkness @ Sycamore

Usually don't plug gigs on here, but I'm playing at Sycamore in Brooklyn Thurs March 8th 9-10. Really trying hard to bring people out to the show, wrote a lot of great new music and made some fliers too. This may be my last show in a while(which I'll explain in my next blog)

Here's the Description:

I hope you'll join me for "Jon Crowley presents: Heart of Darkness @ Sycamore" on Thurs March 8th.

Very excited to be presenting this night of original music with this great band. 'Heart of Darkness' features all original music of mine that conjures the influences of Classical music from the Romantic Period(Chopin, Scriabin) and sets it in a Quintet format with 2 horns with improvisation against an Indie-Rock backdrop. Much of the music is written, including most of the piano left-hand parts, bass figures and horn harmonies. All the songs are through-composed, so they unfold like stories with definitive beginning, middle and ends, instead of the antiquated 'melody-solo-melody' format. For this reason, The music has been described as 'Aurally cinemagraphic".

You can hear some samples from our last show here:

I want to make sure we bring a lot of people out for this event, our first at Sycamore, so I've set the cover low at just $5(!)

Come join us,
