The House Of Dosh
Local electronic multi-instrumentalist Martin Dosh is bringing his loves of improvisation and collaboration to the Turf Club every Tuesday in January, hosting a month-long residency/recording session with 20 of his closest musician pals. Dosh promises these shows will be "largely improvised," which isn't surprising from a guy whose most recent effort, 2013's Milk Money, features a 25-minute piece commissioned by the Walker Art Center. Only Dosh knows what will come of the recordings from this one-of-a-kind residency, but it's clear there's only one place for his fans to be the next few Tuesday nights. 8 p.m., $6-$8. -- Alex Rice
