Land of Tomorrow (The LOT)
233 W. Broadway
Free (donations encouraged); 7 p.m.
Completed in 1964, Terry Riley’s “In C” was a watershed moment for composers who cherished minimalism. Many of them credit Riley’s piece for ushering the genre toward the prominence it enjoys today. The bearded wonder from Colfax, Calif., recommended the piece be played with as many as 35 people, and Wednesday night, musicians will try to do just that, recreating Riley’s most famous work. The NovemberGroup features members of The Commonwealth, Ut Gret, Softcheque, Lucky Pineapple and Another 7 Astronauts. Thomas A. Minor & The Picket Line opens, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, there will be a sit-down potluck starting before the show and continuing throughout the performance. —Mat Herron
