Maggi Payne
Too seldom on the stage, Maggi Payne's presence is nonetheless felt deeply, far and wide by any lucky enough to encounter her boundless, truly singular sensibility. An interdisciplinary builder of timbre, light, movement, and objects that entice play, Payne's acoustic and electro-acoustic works often include video, dance, transparencies, and film. She has recordings on more than a dozen different labels and serves as Co-Director of the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College. Don’t miss this amazing chance to join Maggi Payne in the small sound chamber at Second Act.

Tania Chen
Toy pianist, experimental musician, and free improviser, Tania Chen, brings her found objects, lo-fi electronics, and pianoworks to Second Act. Acclaimed as a foremost performer of compositions by John Cage, Michael Parsons, and Cornelius Cardew, tale of Chen's full range must also include her improvisational duos with Steve Beresford on an album called "Ointment", with Jon Raskin and Bruce Ackley of the Rova Saxophone Quartet. Basically, the best way to grasp this virtuoso's mastery of musical chance and moment is to step directly inside the time space continuum with her. Your portal opens Wed 6.17.15

Extra Soft Earthquake
Who's to say if it's love lorn knees about to swoon, or the solar system tugging at tectonics just enough to tousle your hair, only the bubbles in your brain are precise enough to register disaster of these proportions. The question becomes, who else feels it and for that, you need something extra: a resonant frequency for detecting others. With two masters of tectonic touslings, Jon Leidecker (wobbly) and Jake Rodriguez (bran(...)pos) spinning the top, few will be left standing at this, their debut performance.

Earth Jerks
Christian Dixon knows humans, not only has he played with them as with his famed trio Death Sentence Panda! he defies their spiritual death by running a record shop, and it's even rumored he created a real human inside his house. But if you separate him from other humans, something strange happens, it's as if he can summon the personhood of machines. As documented on the Computer Tapes label, his solo project, Earth Jerks, demonstrates how to use gaffer's tape effectively and how to abide by the adage; "3 chords good, 2 chords better, 1 chord best". The audience will be asked to keep a safe and silent distance during this demonstration.

Re: “The Tuttles

On Jan. 8th The Tuttles with AJ Lee will be reunited for an exciting show at the Freight & Salvage, Berkeley and AJ Lee will release her new, debut EP! Molly also has a new EP from earlier in 2014 to share and there will be lots of great old favorite songs in the concert along with new material.

What people are saying about the band…
"Dave [Stewart, of the Eurythmics,] shared the stage also in mid-show with another new discovery, guitarist-singer Molly Tuttle, a North California native who sings with the gentle authority of Gillian Welch, yet plays astoundingly fleet flat-picking guitar like Chet Atkins on superdrive . " - American Songwriter Magazine

"Can This Kid Be the Next Alison Krauss?" - Mother Jones Magazine, interview with AJ Lee

Catch the next generation of bluegrass masters when The Tuttles with AJ Lee take the stage at the Freight. The Northern California Bluegrass Society (NCBS) has twice named them Best Bluegrass Band, and named Molly Tuttle the Best Guitarist, Michael Tuttle the Best Mandolin Player, and Jack Tuttle the Best Fiddler. Oh, and Best Female Vocalist? That would be AJ in 2010, 2011, and 2013, Molly in 2012. The band is up for awards again as finalists with Northern California Bluegrass Society (Best Band, Best Female Vocalist, Best Mandolin, Best Fiddle)The point is, these folks can sing and play bluegrass with skill and spirit far beyond their years—except for Jack. His years are already up there with his spirit and skill. He’s the father of Molly, Michael, and Sullivan, the band’s bass player, and he gave the kids their first music lessons in their living room in Palo Alto, passing along what he learned as a member of the original Tuttle Family Band that his father Gerald started many decades ago on the family’s farm in Illinois. The NCBS gave Jack a Lifetime Achievement Award this past year.
