John Nowicki (The Holy Terror, Poetry ‘n Lotion) is at it again, this time hosting a monthly musical improvisation night where “hand-selected luminaries” from Tampa Bay area’s music scene are picked to perform. The night consists of two sets: the first has musicians performing original works; the second brings “all gathered musicians for a one-of-a-kind, completely improvised full-band performance.”

Every month will bring new musicians and for Wednesday night’s inaugural run Nowicki is joined by Tribal Style guitarist and "I Saw A Tiger" singer Blake Yeager and jack-of-all-musical-trades Jake Tremper.

Tightrope Improv: John Nowicki feat. Blake Yeager w/Jake Tremper. Wednesday, July 28, 7:30 p.m. Free. Hooch and Hive, Tampa. INFO
