ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
The Vortex is a concert series that brings new and improvised music every first Friday of the month to Outpost 186. The shows span diverse musical styles and artistic disciplines, but the common factors remain experimentation and spontaneity. While most performers have a strong affinity for improvisation, this is not required. They may have a background in jazz, or classical training, or be completely self-taught. We actively seek performers from as diverse backgrounds as possible.
