Nascent 002 — San Soda, Nooka Jones & Evan Michael

Last month, local luminary Evan Michael kicked off his new series, Nascent, at his second home and beloved stomping grounds, Cameo Gallery. By definition, "Nascent" means "just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential."
The aim, Evan says, is to bring in seasoned talent while also providing local and/or up-and-coming talent a slot on the lineup. After kicking off last month with Berlin-based John Roberts and Turrbotax's Contakt, Nascent is back tonight with Berlin's San Soda (of We Play House and FCL fame) and Brooklyn resident/Percussion Lab's Nooka Jones for support. As always, Evan will also be on deck.
Ahead of the show, San Soda recently stopped by Tim Sweeney's Beats in Space show earlier this week. "It was a smooth mix of eclectic house and R&B jams and I can't wait to hear what he's got in store for this Friday," says Evan. He and Nooka also took to Nascent's FM to deliver a special 2-hour mix.
Next up on the Nascent calendar is Other People's Valentin Slip and local hero Justin Miller on June 21. Stay tuned for more news on Nascent. In the meantime, keep up with the series on Facebook, Tumblr and Mixcloud.
Tickets available here or at the door ($10).
