Rempis Percussion Quartet 

When: Tue., Oct. 27, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $8-$12




At least at first glance, the name "The Rempis Percussion Quartet" feels misleading: Only two of the four members, Frank Rosaly and Tim Daisy, are drummers, and as throne-sitting leaders in Chicago's fertile improvisational scene, they don't exactly sit back in the groove to play percussion, as though pattering incessantly inside some sort of eternal drum circle. Norwegian-born, Texas-based upright bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten doesn't rest within a mere rhythm, either; he digs into each string to pull out big notes or against them with a bow to elicit rich, shocking tones. And Dave Rempis, the act's namesake, is a real saxophone heavyweight, known equally for leaning into fluid melodic lines and ripping them apart into careful, thoughtful disarray. But the drums-based half of this ensemble does carry the majority of the momentum and activity, as Rosaly and Daisy roil in movements that intersect, counteract and argue with each other. Rempis and Flaten work within or on top of that very busy surface, using the core percussion duo as their own interactive platform for warping time, tone and theme. This show shouldn't have a still or stale moment. 9 p.m., $8–$12, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, —Grayson Haver Currin
