In their return to the Ford, Angel City presents jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders with his band Spirits, featuring percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake. The night also features the world premiere of a new composition by composer José Gurria, performed by his 22-piece Gurrisonic Orchestra.
The Gurrisonic Orchestra brings together some of the most creative improvisers in Los Angeles such as Daniel Rosenboom, Alexander Noice, Justo Almario, Dave Tranchina and Gavin Templeton among many others. For this performance, the orchestra will feature guest soloist Don Byron on clarinet, a recipient of the first Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. Gurria's genre-bending compositions push the boundaries of instrumentation and style, creating orchestral landscapes tinged with avant-garde, jazz and classical contemporary music.

Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled scream riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says "please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns". In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?
Looking forward to collaborating with Droege, Urie says: “Los Angeles is already in love with Drew Droege and now he’s bringing his brilliant play back! The Celebration Theater is the perfect home for Bright Colors And Bold Patterns, I cannot wait for Drew to tear it up on their stage.”
