Pausa Art House’s Unusually Different Halloween / Day of the Dead Celebration

For those looking for something a little bit more cozy and unusual sounding on Halloween, Pausa Art House has got something for you.

The gang has put together something out of the ordinary… actually, ordinary for the group of musicians who are coming together with instruments that range from chain saws to didgeridoos. “Pausa will host its first Halloween concert on Thursday evening with the free jazz group Unusually Different,” said Jon Nelson, co-owner/director of Pausa. “Unusually Different blends composed music with improvisation like no other group on the planet. Led by Su Ra alumnus Reynold Scott, the ensemble is comprised of some of Buffalo’s finest wind instrumentalists: Steve Baczkowski – saxophones and flutes, Dave DeWitt – trombone, horn, tuba, Michael Colqhoun – flutes, chain saw, Ellen Barnum – bassoon, Kenny Foster – clarinets. Audience members are invited to attend in costume. The winner of the costume contest will receive a Pausa Omar-Tamez-Buffalo-NYSampler Basket , with wine and beer featured on Pausa’s menu. On Friday evening, Pausa will continue its series of Lively Music / Silent film with a screening of the classic French film J’accuse! In celebration of Day of the Dead and French Week, a new live musical score will be created by visiting guitarist and composer Omar Tamez (see inset image – Mexico), in collaboration with local musicians Steve Baczkowski and John Bacon Jr.”

Both performances begin at 8pm. Admission for Halloween (10/31) is $5. Admission for Day of the Dead (11/1) is $10.
