Fresh off his Morning Ritual project, local keyboardist/composer Ben Darwish has prepped another ambitious piece. From the description I've heard, The Lonely Night isn't really comparable to anything else, a multimedia work anchored by 10 new songs performed by Darwish, drummer Russ Kleiner, and guitarist William Seiji Marsh. There is filmed footage to go alongside the new music—which has been described as "nocturnes" with a down-tempo R&B slant—and there's set design and lighting cues to match. The project was funded by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Darwish & Co. will perform it five times over the course of the weekend. Most intriguing of all, Darwish will be seated behind a 60-year-old Hammond S6 organ that has accordion-style chord buttons. I can't tell you what to expect, exactly, but the intrigue factor is sky-high. NED LANNAMANN
