Trombonist Dave Nelson plays the Goat Farm Wed., Dec. 18

Posted By on Tue, Dec 17, 2013 at 1:54 PM

Dave Nelson, Brooklyn-based composer and experimental trombonist, will take his hypnotic brass loops to the Goat Farm tomorrow (Wed., Dec. 18) with local drummer Marlon Patton.

Last year, Nelson released the improvisational In This Day, which features only first-take performances and layers syncopated trombone riffs to create an innovative, textured sound.

For tomorrow's show, Nelson will be accompanied by Patton on drums and bass pedals, intertwining to form a mezmerizing groove. The performance will also showcase a conceptual video installation from Atlanta artist Lana Vogestad.

A native Georgian, Nelson draws from diverse genres, influenced by his experience performing with popular acts like the National, David Byrne & St. Vincent, and Vampire Weekend, as well as with classical ensembles (the Knights Orchestra, Talea) and for film scores ("Beasts of the Southern Wild").

$5-$10 (pay what you can). Wed., Dec. 18. 8 p.m. The Goat Farm. 1200 Foster St.
