Jazz drummer extraordinaire Antonio Sánchez comes to Seattle’s Jazz Alley on Tuesday March 19th and Wednesday March 20th. The Mexican American musician and composer recently released the critically acclaimed political album Lines in the Sand, which tells the stories of migrants and the injustices at the U.S.–Mexico border. You might have recognized Sánchez as the composer of the award-winning soundtrack for Birdman, or heard his innovative improvised live performance along with the film at the Neptune Theatre last year. This time, Sánchez will be joined by his band Migration—keyboardist John Escreet, bassist Matt Brewer, vocalist Thana Alexa, and tenor saxophonist Chase Baird. Don’t miss these two evenings of stellar NYC modern jazz. Tickets are available at the Jazz Alley web site.

Cool Cover: Empancipator & 9 Theory‘s Cheeba Gold.
Details: West coast electronic artists Emancipator (Oregon) and 9 Theory (California) just collaborated to create EP, Cheeba Gold. The EP comes out on March 19th, with a Seattle show set for April 27th at the Crocodile. I love this cover of a cat having some Cheeba Gold hot sauce.
