Operation ID have been working on a brand new set of music, and after performances at IMPFest and a brief tour of Oregon they are back in Seattle ready to play.  Op ID’s special brand of genre-defying freeimprovjazzrockpop takes a new turn with the release of their latest single “Trapped.” (Listen here)  Their new live set is sure to be obnoxiously fun and offensively well-played (in the best possible way).  DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!

Ryan Keebaugh – Premiere of Suffering Servant.  Bridgewater College Alumni Choir, Bridgewater Church of the Brethren, Bridgewater, VA.  August 19, 2012, 3:00 p.m..
