Take the F train to 2nd Ave., use 1st Ave. exit, and walk east to Ave. C, or take the M-9 or M-21 bus to the corner of Houston St. and Ave. C. There are no reservations and no advance ticket sales, so please arrive early. NOTE: Ben Ratliff at "The New York Times" recommended this group for New Year's Eve: "Marc Ribot is a rough-magic guitar improviser whose sound and touch go perfectly with the songs of Albert Ayler, which are like hymns and marches set afire. And that is the brief of Spiritual Unity, a quartet convened for special occasions, with the trumpeter Roy Campbell, Ayler bassist Henry Grimes, and the drummer Chad Taylor." And as everyone probably already knows, Henry Grimes played, toured, and recorded with Albert Ayler (from 1964 to 1966).
