Gerry Fialka, right, leads a musical exploration

Saturday, Dec. 27 — 7 to 10 p.m.
Urban cultural anthropologist Gerry Fialka and his bohemian cohorts continue the jazz-funk tradition started at the now-defunct Sponto Gallery in Venice. The musical event features the avant-funk jazz fusionists Black Shoe Polish, the live poetry/improv collective Rag ‘N’ Bones, and Eric Ahlberg’s jazz workshop featuring Sam Clay, Freddie Ginns and Merritt Evan Raff. Jazz Funk Fest resumes explorations reminiscent of Gil Scott-Heron, Public Enemy, Hank Williams, George Carlin, John Coltrane and The Art Ensemble of Chicago.
