Technically he’s no longer a Seattleite. If you really want to be specific, composer and Bainbridge Island native Jherek Bischoff’s not much of a permanent resident anywhere these days, splitting his time among L.A., New York, and, in September, here, when he’ll take the Moore stage supported by a string quartet and other musicians like Zac Pennington of Parenthetical Girls. This one-off show (performed in two sets) is tucked in among projects with David Byrne (who contributed to his latest record, Composed), playing bass and writing songs for the Kronos Quartet, touring with Amanda Palmer, etc. In the music business, some people are just good to work with—and Bischoff’s clearly one. jherekbischoff.com
