Show: Vox Arcana “On the second album from his trio with clarinetist James Falzone and cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, percussionist and composer Tim Daisy digs deeper into an ongoing exploration of the intersection of contemporary classical and improvised music,” writes Peter Margasak. “A musician whose productivity hinges on bold improvisation, he’s developed an interesting hybrid with this project, drawing on three distinct spheres of musical thought: the New York school of modern classical (Cage, Wolff, Feldman, et al), Chicago’s AACM, and early minimalists like LaMonte Young and Terry Riley.”

Dinner: Sai Cafe The fish served at Sai Cafe is so uniformly good that it’s hard to misstep. Pieces of sushi are lavishly cut, and even the fishiest fish — mackerel, for example — is firm and fresh.
