Renowned local cellist Dan Kassel will bring his virtuosic musicianship to the World Cafe Live stage tonight. Kassel released his new album Tribes Forgotten in February which he says “is meant to take the listener to great heights and over vast expanse.” He certainly does capture atmospheric unity and tensions throughout the record all centered around his somber cello. Listen to “Ascension” below and get tickets here.
Delicate Steve aka multi-instrumentalist Steve Marion will present his eclectic instrumental R&B to the crowd at Tellus 360 tonight.

Listen to “Ramona Reborn” below and get tickets here.

Watch them play at Red Poppy Art House below and get tickets here.
