The Outpost Performance Space, one of this town's most important outlets for jazz, art and world music as well as the avant-garde, is having its fifth annual fundraiser on Friday, May 26. The event features Lisa Fischer And Grand Baton. Fischer is emerging as one of the nation's most inventive and heartfelt interpreters of classic rock songs. Her band, Grand Baton, is an organic gumbo of progressive rock, psychedelic soul, and African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean rhythms and classical influences. They'll be performing in the Albuquerque Museum’s amphitheater at 8:30pm, preceded by a dinner (catered by Slate Street Café), silent auction and raffle for the 220 patrons in the Museum at 6:30pm. Pre-dinner entertainment will be provided by Hillary Smith, Jim Ahrend, Glenn Kostur and the Artha Meadors Quartet. Gala Fundraiser tickets are $150 per person (no member discounts or passes). Concert-only Tickets are $30-$50 ($5 discount for Outpost Members & Students. No Member Passes). $50 VIP tickets guarantee a chair. There will be many seating options (chairs, stadium, grass) in the $30 section, but a chair cannot be guaranteed. Pretty cool, eh? (August March)

Now in its fifth year, Outpost’s Annual Gala Fundraiser at the Albuquerque Museum has become one of the most anticipated events of the spring season. The evening features a concert in the Museum’s Amphitheater at 8:30pm preceded by a dinner (catered by Slate Street Café), silent auction and raffle for 220 patrons in the Museum at 6:30pm.

After four decades bringing raw soul to the stage for The Rolling Stones, Sting, Tina Turner and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa Fischer (featured in the Oscar winning 2013 film, Twenty Feet From Stardom) is emerging as the most inventive and heartfelt interpreter of classic rock songs working today. She has received glowing testimonials from colleagues like Sting, Patti Austin, and Chris Botti, and Keith Richards praised her, “amazing power, energy, and projection.” Last heard in a stunning, heart-warming concert at the Lensic in Santa Fe as part of the 2016 New Mexico Jazz Festival, she returns with her band, Grand Baton for Outpost’s Gala! An organic gumbo of progressive rock, psychedelic soul, and African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean rhythms and classical influences Grand Baton, along with Fischer continue to bring audiences to their feet. Other members of Grand Baton include Aidan Carroll, bass; and Thierry Arpino, drums.
