On June 8 and 9, Medeski, Martin and Wood will play host to a special two-night webcast event that will take place at the Nevessa Soundstage near Woodstock, NY, which will see the band playing a two-set show and sharing insights on the art of improvisation through an interactive Master Class. While a limited number of tickets are available for $100 for one night, and $160 for both – with access to the webcast running you $24.95, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to both nights of the intimate event, as well as one free access code for those of you who are unable to make the trip for what’s sure to be a unique and memorable event.

The first night will feature two 60 minute sets from the Brooklyn-based act, performing music from their Radiolarians series in addition to a fully improvised set. The second night will see the avant-jazz-groovers hosting a Master Class, where the band will illustrate the different ways they use composition to lend structure to interactive group improvisation. The web audience will be able to interact directly with the band by submitting questions and comments live via Facebook and Twitter.
We’ve teamed up with Medeski, Martin & Wood to offer our readers a pair of tickets to the two-night event, as well as one access code to the webcast as part of our Everybody Wins When We Plug Something And In Return They Offer Us Free Shit To Give Away program. To enter for the show tickets or webcast code, simply leave a comment below telling us what your favorite MMW album is and why. Whether it’s something like the old-school Friday Afternoon In The Universe, or maybe you dig the sounds of 2002’s Uninvisible, just give us a brief description of your favorite MMW album. Also, let us know if you’d like to enter for the webcast code or the tickets to the event near Woodstock. We’ll randomly select one of the entries for the event tickets and one of the entries for the webcast code.
Only one entry per person is allowed and the contest ends on June 5. We’ll pick the winners at random and announce them on the 6th.
