Doors At 7. Music At 7:30pm
Versatile bassist and composer Matt Lux performs a set of solo music on the Option Stage. He’ll then join Tim Daisy for a discussion about his life and work. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the scenes most flexible and genre-blending musicians perform as well as talk about his decades-long career working with countless musicians and ensembles both here in Chicago and beyond.
Peter Margasak of the Chicago Reader recently dubbed Matt Lux the "Kevin Back on Chicago music, connected to just about every important living player in the city." If you don't recognize his name don't worry, chances are good you have heard his playing with groups such as Isotope 217, Exploding Star Orchestra and other various Rob Mazurek ensembles, or as sideman/bassist extraordinaire for Iron and Wine, Azita, Plush, Smog, Diverse, Tranquility Bass and so much more.
