Billy Martin to Celebrate 50th Birthday with John Medeski, Marc Ribot and More

Billy Martin will celebrate his 50th birthday with a bunch of friends tomorrow night at Roulette in Brooklyn. The Medeski, Martin and Wood drummer will be joined by Marc Ribot, John Medeski, Fang Percussion, Trevor Dunn, Ned Rothebnerg, Sirius Quartet, Sam Bennet, Anthony Coleman, Shelley Hirsch, Daniel Jodocy, Falu, Min Xiao-Fen and Marcus Rojas.

Martin and his friends—many of whom are staples of the downtown New York scene—-will collaborate and improvise throughout the night and, at times, they will be backed by some of Martin’s experimental films.

General admission tickets to the show are now on sale for $20, though students and seniors will be able to purchase them for $15.

Happy 5-0 to the slinkiest, illest drummer in all the land! Thanks for sharing your art. Would love to celebrate illyB at this gig but distance makes it unlikely… Also dmuth, Chris Wood is on the road with the Wood Bros – doubt he was uninvited or anything.
