A special 2 hour bittersweet What’s This Called?
We say Goodbye to 2016, a year that was itself 365 days full of goodbyes.
Goodbye Joey Casio. Goodbye David Bowie. Alan Vega. Pauline Oliveros. Leonard Cohen. Gilli Smyth (Mother Gong). Bernie Worrell. Richard Lyons (Negativland). Goodbye to more great musicians than we can honor in one show…
