May 17: Jozef Van Wissem, Guy Blakeslee & Jeremy Rendina at the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles

This Sunday, May 17, Dutch lute-meister Jozef Van Wissem brings his own transcendental brand of Renaissance-meets-homegrown-folk-meets-electro-acoustic music to the Philosophical Research Society in Los Feliz, along with some electric guitar fireworks by Guy Blakeslee (The Entrance Band) and a slide show by filmmaker Jeremy Rendina. Should be a pretty magical night, especially if you’ve never seen Van Wissem in action before:
