Sam Cohen, Cochema at The Sultan Room, 8:30 p.m.

Producer and musician Sam Cohen released his second solo LP, The Future’s Still Ringing In My Ears, back in May of this year. Now the record, which showcases his skillful guitar work and penchant for the psychedelic, is getting a proper vinyl release. To commemorate the release, Cohen will be performing in The Sultan Room at Turk’s Inn.

Opening the show is multi-instrumentalist and Dap-King’s saxophonist, Cochemea Gastelum. Gastelum recently released his first album in nearly a decade, All My Relations, a transcendent collection of jazz that explores South Central Mexican culture and spirituality.
