A LOT OF NIGHT MUSIC

"Silent Night" is so last Christmas. Instead, celebrate "Unsilent Night," the second annual boombox Christmas parade in Baltimore tomorrow. Participants are invited to bring their own boombox, and CDs and tapes with parts of New York composer Phil Kline's "outdoor ambient music piece for an infinite number of boomboxes" will be distributed. On the signal, the gathered crowd will press "play" and follow saxophonist Brian Sacawa through the city. The parade is followed by an after-party at Joe Squared Pizza and Bar featuring performances by Hybrid Groove Project and DJ Dubble8.

......................

Gather at the south side of the Washington Monument by the Peabody Conservatory by 7:45 p.m. The parade starts at 8 p.m. Joe Squared Pizza and Bar is at 133 W. North Ave. The after-party starts about 9 p.m. The family-friendly event will be held in all weather. Contact brian@brian sacawa.com.
