This Music Series, An Appetite for Adventure continues:

Brittany Karlson, bass, Forbes Graham, trumpet, Nick Neuburg, drums, 10:30pm start.


Dudes: it starts at 10:30PM, come and Friday "party" with great music into the weekend!

A growing creative musician deserving and being more and more in the spotlight, Brittany leads a Boston group of Jazz improvisers to bring her choice music and leadership to the forefront displaying her unique vocabulary of creativity!


Bassist (& vocalist) Brittany Karlson is an adventurous musician with roots in jazz, American old time and bluegrass, and other improvised music.

She has become a bassist in demand from especially the Free Jazz and New Music (aka “other” improvised music), not only in Boston but beyond into other New England opportunities.

She has performed across the USA, Canada, and Europe in a variety of ensemble settings, including improvised trio Letter Castle and American old-time/bluegrass/Swedish string band The Goodbye Girls. Karlson performs original songs under the moniker Karl, having released debut album “Feast Day” on Lungbasket Recordings and will release upcoming album “And the Green Grass Grows all Around” in 2020.

She also has a solo project involving a comedic sound puppet show from behind the bass. As a visual artist, she makes finger puppets as well as collaborates with composer Steven Long to create collage work under the name Vanitas. 

Karlson is an AmSAT certified Alexander Technique teacher and teaches private lessons in Jamaica Plain, Boston.

She received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in music from Berklee College of Music in 2015 in Performance on the double bass


Forbes Graham: more than Boston favorite, an internationally recognized improviser and conceptualist!

“There are hidden secrets in the horn and a host of musical linguists uncovering new languages…FORBES GRAHAM doesn’t ignore it. He embraces the blue note and turns it “magenta haze.” The Boston-area improviser sputters and attacks the trumpet with shark-attack notes before letting out a haunting whistled horn like a meditative Don Cherry, or a gruffled stutter like a duck being strangled. Essences…” (Miles Beyond: The New Sounds of Trumpet, NPR, August 2010)

Forbes Graham is a composer, musician, sound artist, and visual artist whose work explores themes of simultaneity, perceptibility, transformation and collage. His work "Encounters I" for trumpet, electronics, and voices premiered at Roulette in 2019. He performed with Michael Pisaro at (the) co-incidence festival in 2017 and has appeared at other music festivals including High Zero, Vision, and The Thing InThe Spring. He was commissioned to write a piece for the Festival of New Trumpet, and has created work for the avant-rock ensemble Normal Love. 

Graham is the creator and producer of "Beyond/Apex", a bi-weekly podcast dedicated to showcasing contemporary and experimental music. To date, this show has featured the works of over 100 composers and creatives, ranging from emerging artists such as Cecilia López and Claire Rousay to more established artists like George Lewis.


Nick Neuburg is is a drummer/percussionist, pianist and composer originally from the greater Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Nick began music studies at an early age and quickly became an in demand musician among the local community of Jazz musicians by his teens, performing often with Pianists Mike Gerber and Antonio Adolfo and Multi-Instrumentalist and jazz great Ira Sullivan. 

After graduating high school, Nick relocated to Boston to attend the New England Conservatory of Music, where he studied with the legendary drummers Rakalam Bob Moses and Billy Hart and studied composition and improvisation with pianist Anthony Coleman and Guitarist Joe Morris. Upon graduating the Conservatory in the spring of 2014 Nick remained in the greater Boston area until the summer of 2018, during which time he both remained active in the creative music scene as a performer and became busy working and teaching. Over those years, Nick was a part of the bands Aykroyd, Letter Castle, Particulars, Ryan Power, Los Greys, Every Kim Parcell, Listening Woman and Creative Healing, among others. 

Nick has been teaching private music lessons on both Drums and Piano consistently since 2015 and is excited to continue teaching in NY! As an educator, Nick strives to help students develop the fundamental skills and vocabulary as a musician that will allow them to play the music they most enjoy, making the learning and growing process as much fun as possible along the way. He aims to pass down the knowledge received to him by his many great teachers to the best of his abilities.
