This week in the Little William Theater:

Derde Verde

Dylan McKenzie, guitar and voice

Jonathan Schwartz, bass and voice

Derde Verde is a group steeped in Americana as well as the avant-garde. Their unique pop perspective will be explored in two great venues at the Hammer Museum.

In the Little William Theater, Dylan and Jon will present intimate, acoustic originals for an audience of two. In the Hammer Courtyard, the duo will create improvised ambient sound pieces based on space, texture, and their own sense of folk experimentalism. The Little William Theater is located in a coat-room in the lobby under the stairs at the Hammer Museum. It is one of the world’s newest and smallest theaters, with seating for two people, and different performers every week. Curated by Chris Kallmyer.
