Handbill calendar for “A’s 3 Wednesday’s in January,” the famous shows hosted by Arleen Schloss in her loft in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Notably, the first show in the bill on January 14th featured Kalaparusha, the renowned free jazz musician, playing alongside the new wave Zoid Boiz, action poet Bern Porter, guitarist Paul Cebar, performer Rolf Brand, and a film by Angela Scheirl. A remarkable appearance of the storied jazz musician in a space crucial to the budding downtown scene of New York in the 1980s. The later show on January 21 featured the notorious noise musician Von LMO’s band Information, and the final show on January 28, 1981 featured the avant-garde jazz musician Frank Lowe. A striking document of the avant-garde scene overlap.
Over the coming years, Arleen Schloss would continue to host a striking array of artists and musicians performed including Jean-Michel Basquiat and his band Gray, Thurston Moore, Glenn Branca, Phoebe Legere and Eric Bogosian, Richard Hambleton, Elliott Sharp, Suicide, and more.
