Search and Restore has been programming progressive jazz in New York for the past few years. No one is doing as much as Search and Restore to create a buzz about exactly the sort of innovative, genre-straddling music that will help snag the ears of those outside the jazz world, and continue to build a young jazz audience.
Now Search and Restore founder Adam Schatz is in the process of attaining 501c3 nonprofit status so that the organization can have the wherewithal to step up its game. The problem is, he has until October 30th to raise $450 for IRS filing fees, or they will drop the case. Schatz has created the following donation/reward scale:
a $30 donation gets you one free ticket to two Search and Restore concerts of your choosing. a $40 donation gets you two free tickets to two Search and Restore concerts of your choosing. Finally a $50 donation gets you 2 free tickets to the next THREE Search and Restore concerts of your choosing. A $200 donation gets you two free tickets to the next FIVE Search and Restore concerts, and at one of them I will personally feed you grapes and fan you with palm leaves.
Here are some upcoming shows brought to you by Search and Restore:
- November 17th: Andrew D'Angelo's Gay Disco Trio at DROM, with the Benefit Band (Jim Black, Trevor Dunn, Chris Speed, Oscar Noriega), at a lecture from Andrew on his recent healing trip to Tibet and the process of beating out brain cancer.
