JAZZ | Stick Men


From rhythmic tapping to classical bowing, Tony Levin gets extraordinary sounds out of his 12-string Chapman Stick. Markus Reuter coaxes a veritable symphony out of the touch-style guitar he designed himself. And Pat Mastelotto has expanded his percussion repertoire to encompass a wide array of loops and samples. Levin and Mastelotto serve as the rhythm section of the legendary progressive rock group King Crimson, and Reuter studied with Crimson founder Robert Fripp, so it's no surprise that together this power trio creates some of the most otherworldly music on the planet.

Stick Men perform Sunday, April 24, and Monday, April 25, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. 8 p.m. both nights. $25-$30. 292-9940;;
