w/ TBA

Welcome to the July edition of our monthly experimental + improvisational music night, run by Jess Keyes and Patrick McMinn. Mid-Atlantic Wilderness is a monthly(ish) experimental music series that takes place on third Sundays at The Crown. Each month we feature a group of improvisers combined in various ways to present around 6 sets of delightful, strange, unexpected, and sublime sounds. Mid-Atlantic Wilderness is lovingly curated and hosted by Jessica Keyes and Patrick McMinn. We are committed to keeping the series free and inclusive, and we collect donations that go entirely to the performers. Thank you for your support!



A bunch of talented musicians and collaborators gather for a very special improvisation evening.




Jessica Keyes is a Baltimore-based performer and composer. Her compositions explore trickster characters, ecstatic energy, and communion with the audience. Under the name Mueo, her solo practice for saxophone and electronics explores the tensions and transportive nature of durational performance with slowly building complexity. Jessica leads an 11-piece punk brass band called Bedlam Brass and is a member of the experimental chamber group Trucker Talk. She co-organizes Mid-Atlantic Wilderness, a monthly series of improvised music, and she collaborates often with other performers.
