Pocket Space 

Friday, February 21, at The Bottleneck.

When Chris Stringer left Lawrence, his Space Pocket bandmates Luke Stone and Chris Handley refused to let their dance contraption disappear. Rather, they added Brian Egan and Ken Lovern, changed the outfit's name to Pocket Space and continued to concoct primarily instrumental improv-inclined loose numbers that incorporate jazz's myriad disciplines, including space rock, funk and hip-hop. Meanwhile, down in his new home of Austin, Texas, Stringer's been getting his own global groove on with Darren Blais and Wayne Dalchau as the Doctor, so christened for Stringer's nickname during his Space Pocket (pictured) days. Drawing on world fusion by way of postrock electronics, the diagnosis now calls for the Doctor to make a house call in Stringer's hometown, where it'll open for Pocket Space.
