Last night Spin Cycle Presents produced one helluva jam session in Santa Monica, CA. It featured some of the community’s finest musicians in an intimate 80-100 person venue aptly named TRiP. Marcus Rezak called this project Cosmik Playground Superjam and it lived up to that billing. (Zappa), (), (Umphreys), (Stratosphere All-, FlightWave) and (FlightWave) traded ideas all night and somehow infused “Shakedown Street” some Zappa styled improv. This was impressive considering it was the first time they’ve played together as a unit.

Check out the and some media from what will hopefully be the first of many West Side events these musicians as the backbone.

Set I: Chunga’s Revenge, Food 1, Cirrus
Set II: Cosmik Debris, Glory, Treacherous Cretins, Improv
