The New York Times announces that Black February will screen at thisĀ  year’s Vision Festival

NubluBlack February will be screening at the 18th Vision Festival, in Brooklyn on June 16. The Vision Festival features a great lineup this year, including a lifetime achievement award for Milford Graves.

Butch played the festival several times, and it’s a special thing to be able to screen it for the community of improvisers and music lovers who come to the festival each year.

This year’s festival will be held at Roulette in Brooklyn, June 12-16. Black February screens on the last day of the festival at 4:30 pm.

I’ll post any more details as they become available. But, for now, mark your calendars!
