Bhob Rainey digs at the secret corners of your brain, wielding a soprano saxophone to invoke aural anomalies. Rainey is sure to peel the paint off the walls with the unconventional means he uses to create otherworldly sound. For fans of experimental composition, his name recalls short days and cold weather, as Rainey usually descends upon the Lemp Arts Center (3301 Lemp Avenue, 314-771-1096) during the brisk days leading up to Christmas. His honest style of free playing provides a unique performance, making every concert a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
What to Expect: A quiet evening of free improvisation with a stacked line up of openers. Relax on the couches and (just in case it gets loud) bring your ear plugs.
8:00 p.m. Friday, December 23. Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center, 3301 Lemp Avenue, Saint Louis, Missouri. $5. All Ages.
