Fresh off a long road trip touring the right half of America with Jessica Pavone last week, guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson is on the move again, this time in a big jet plane, for two gigs in California with her acclaimed trio featuring bassist John H├ębert and drummer Ches Smith.

But don’t fret New York, your favorite lady guitarist will be back by the weekend so she can perform with Matana Roberts at The Stone on Sunday.

Later in the month, after a few weeks of relative quiet, she’ll be back on stage in Gotham with Tom Rainey, The Thirteenth Assembly and Marc Ribot’s Sun Ship, the latter of which will also head off to more neutral digs in Willisau, Switzerland on August 30th.
