The Tuesday Improvised Music Series at Madame of the Arts

The Tuesday Improvised Music Series serves as a catalyst for community building around improvised music by presenting emerging and established artists twice a month in a casual environment at Madame of Arts in Minneapolis. Funds from this project will go directly to the rental costs of The Tuesday Series. 

The Series strives to minimize the boundaries inherent to traditional concert settings, holding events in such venues as Gus Lucky's, Acadia Theatre, Art of This Gallery, Franklin Art Works, and Madame of the Arts. Beginning by presenting a dedicated core of local performers, the The Series has grown with the expanding Twin Cites improvised music community, and now programs national and international artists regularly. The Series will continue to present concerts at Madame of the Arts in 2012, centrally located at 3401 Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis.

Past performers from 2011 (not in any particular order) include:
Davu Seru, Bryce Beverlin ll, Elaine Evans, Rafael Toral, Andrew Broder, Timothy Glenn, George Cartwright, Isa Gagarin, Markus Lunkenheimer,
Lisa McGrath, Casey Deming, Matt Wacker, Dave Krejci, Chris Hontos, Chris Farstad, Naomi Joy, Jon Davis, Milo Fine, Adam Patterson, Jesse Peterson, Charles Gillett, Paul Metzger, Katelyn Farstad, Kevin Cosgrove, Scott Currie, Erkki Hoven, Edward Schnieder, Trevor Adams, John Marks, Spires That in Sunset Rise, Brambles Cinch, Jason Power, Mitchell Dose, Andrew Lange, Aaron Anderson, Eric Carlson, Fletcher Barnhill, John Zuma Saint-Pelvyn, Eric Lunde, Albert Elmore, Jacob Felix-Heule, Sudden Oak, Palmetto Moon, Daniel Furuta, John Niekrasz, Jason Millard, Matthew Himes, Montgomery Ward, Aerosol Pike, Jackie Beckey, Jonathan Kaiser, Jaron Childs, Ryan Wurst, Mike Hallenbeck, Justin Meyers, Ben Brockway, Beth Chekola, Rind, John Jerry, Richard Barlow, Tatsuya Nakatani
