Vernissage Show Nears
Ran is gearing up for his show August 28 at Vernissage, a Russian restaurant at 1627 Beacon Street in Brookline.
For the group show, titled “Washington Square Noir: Ice Cream and Tears,” Ran will be joined by David “Knife” Fabris (guitar), Joel Yennior (trombone), and Jon Hazilla (percussion). This photo shows a slightly earlier version of the quartet — from left to right, Joel, guitarist Jonah Kraut (who recently moved to Chicago), Knife, and Ran. In addition, vocalist Dominique Eade will make a special guest appearance.
The Boston Globe did a feature on the burgeoning music scene in Washington Square that spotlighted the Vernissage and Ran’s impending appearance there.
The show starts at 8 p.m., and the cover charge is $20. Call (617) 566-3340 for more information.
