Cellarman and Suburban Ambassador of the Sugar Maple. Though my favorite thing to drink is Mescal, I'm fine like wine when I start to rap.


I like walks in the woods and fires at night, add a splash of bourbon, and I'm feelin' alright.

I am continuing my medical eduation by bartending and this year I plan to use my bartending skills in the medical field. Oh, and I love my Joli!


The Scholar, Historian, and Beer Keeper. Say the Magic Word and the Beer Shall be Yours.




When I'm not bartending, I'm exploring the world or writing about travel!...Or working my 9-5 gig and dreaming of beer!

Dave Rempis - Saxophone
Brandon Lopez - Bass
Ryan Packard - Drums/Electronics

This new trio grouping features veteran Chicago saxophonist Dave Rempis alongside two bright lights from a younger generation of powerhouse improvisers. Bassist Brandon Lopez has become one of the most in-demand musicians in New York over the last few years, working with everyone from William Parker and Gerald Cleaver to Amirtha Kidambi and Weasal Walter. His unstoppable energy is palpable in every note he draws from the bass. Packard, another Chicagoan, brings an incredible breadth of interests to the table, at times unleashing a tornado of beats spread across the kit, and at times providing an electronic soundscape for the other members to float on top of. Although this is a new configuration, all three musicians have worked together in various combinations over the last two years, most notably the trio Gunwale that Packard and Rempis formed in 2015, which released a debut record and toured extensively in the U.S. in 2016.

Performances will be followed by films by Chris Marker

Marker is Ken Vandermark's newest ensemble as a leader and includes Andrew Clinkman and Steve Marquette on guitar, Macie Stewart on violin and keyboard, and Phil Sudderberg on drums. Continuing his interest in creating new compositional forms for improvised music, Ken has devised a system of music that not only employs variable order through collage, but has added the superimposition of pieces to create an added layer of possibility for the structure of the material. The band's music is is deeply inspired by Bernie Worrell's keyboard work with Parliament Funkadelic and Talking Heads, contemporary classical music, the guitar work of post-punk groups like Wire and The Ex, and groove methodologies from Brazil, Afro-Beat, and funk.

For this first time Option Milwaukee weekly residency, there will be a celebration of the cinema of Chris Marker, one of the most important filmmakers of the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. Following the music each Sunday there will be a screening of one of his movies at 7pm, with a short introduction by Ken Vandermark. The third concert of the series will feature a new long-form composition by Vandermark written specifically to accompany the legendary film, La Jetée. The concerts are all $10, with a pass for all three for $25, and the Chris Marker screenings are all free.
