Julian Lage is thrilled to offer an exclusive Master Class at select cities on his “Squint” Fall Tour - including Axis Club! All Master Class tickets include admission for one to the evening’s concert. Where available, Master Class tickets will include early admission to the show. Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer ‘master class-only tickets’ at this time. Start time for the class is generally an hour before advertised doors but exact start time will be communicated with ticket buyers around one week before the show. During each class, 30 minutes will be spent teaching to a unique piece of curriculum before a 10-15 minute Q&A session. Tickets to these classes are limited to ensure everyone comes away with a unique and hands-on experience. Participants are not required to bring instruments - topics are not necessarily tied to instruction and technique. In addition to the class, participants will leave with a Julian Lage Essentials Kit from D’Addario (electric strings and pick) along with a Master Class-specific piece of curriculum to take home.

Hailed as one of the most prodigious guitarists of his generation and “highest categoryofimprovising musicians" (New Yorker),Julian Lagehas spent more than a decadesearching through the myriad strains of American musical history via impeccabletechnique, free association and a spirit of infinite possibility. The California-born NewYork-based musician boasts a prolific resume on his ownaccord in addition tocollaborating with Gary Burton and John Zorn, as well as duo projects with Nels Cline,Chris Eldridge and Fred Hersch, among others.As Lage set out to record his debut for Blue Note Records, the virtuoso guitaristreflected on the label’s storied history and the way his own music connected with it. Theresult is Squint, a striking new album that weds incisive, expressive songwriting withthe profound interplay Lage has honed over the past few years with his deft trio featuring bassistJ orge Roederand drummer Dave King.
