Syrinx Effect and Bad Luck will both perform at Rolling Bay Hall on Saturday, March 25 as part of a Space Craft doubleheader concertt.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets, $12 in advance and $15 at the door, are available at

An acoustic/electric duo with endless possibilities, Seattle-based Syrinx Effect plays their own blend of folk punk jazz. They easily switch between dreamy ambient loops, catchy pop riffs and found sounds, all the while paying homage to their free improv roots.

Naomi Siegel plays trombone with guitar pedals, and Kate Olson plays soprano saxophone with a laptop and other toys often thrown in.

In 2016, Syrinx Effect received funding from 4Culture to release their first full length album, “A Sky You Could Strike A Match On,” set to be released later this year.

The duo got its start curating the Racer Sessions in Seattle, and has gone on to perform prolifically around the country, collaborating with many of the mainstays of the improvised music scene such as Wayne Horvitz, Robin Holcomb, Elliott Sharp, Bobby Previte, Stuart Dempster, Allison Miller and Rene Hart.

For more than a decade, the Seattle-based duo Bad Luck (Neil Welch, saxophone/electronics and Chris Icasiano, drums) have pushed the boundaries of what it means to perform, create and move forward in the genre of modern jazz.

With four albums under their belt, Bad Luck has created an incredibly diverse array of music — no small feat in the heavily trodden world of drum/saxophone duos. They have developed a unique performative language together, sculpting compositions that use complex mnemonic techniques, and create “fearless, raw improvisations,” according to the Seattle Times.
