Weekend jazz at Brewery Arts

The Brewery Arts Center will present the Industrial Jazz Group at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 at the BAC Performance Hall in Carson City. Tickets are $15 general and $12 BAC members, seniors, and students. For tickets and information call (775) 883-1976.

Formed by composer/pianist Andrew Durkin in the spring of 2000, the Industrial Jazz Group has frequently been accused of confounding innocent listeners. And no wonder. In addition to its perplexing name (the group could never be confused with, say, Nine Inch Nails,) the IJG seems to change shape – aesthetically and physically – every year or so. Sure the music is always fun (and it should be noted that many of the group’s fans aren’t exactly jazz fans per se). But can’t these guys keep a consistent stylistic vibe together for more than one record?

Of course, anyone who has heard the group lately (circa 2005) knows that it has significantly added to this early fascination with jazz and “high art” genres.
