so fucking pumped up for this.


Friday, May 4th
Turf Club

DAMO SUZUKI!

Damo's backing band, which I guess he always culls from local talent, will be fucking SUPERB, trust me...couldn't think of better people..

So far the line up is:

Freddy Votel (ex Cows drummer, also ex-TVBC, sometimes in Seawhores, main project is Skoal Kodiak these days)

Brady Lenzen - also in Skoal Kodiak, Noise Quean Ant, and sometime Seawhore

Issac Rotto - Gay Beast

this is going to be so great!

Other possible cool things:

1/20 - Afrika Bambaataa

1/25 - Funkdoobiest (!!), Thirsten Howl III, Evil E

Turf Club:

2/9 - The Hidden Hand (ex St Vitus SST dudes), Kylesa


he board on modern radio is good for twin cities centric stuff. do you post there matt?

haha yeah i'm m@gm@90210 on that board i hang out there a lot.


wrt Faggot:

I, personally, find them to be more interesting to read about than actually listen to/see live. It's pretty much just sloppyish punk/metal to me, I understand there's a lot of "interesting" personal politics/sexual identity type stuff that was cool to read abt in the City Pages thing on them, but it doesn't do much for me musically....but I know people that love them...

yeah it's sort of strange in that almost everyone knows each other in "real life"

foundation is a really nice place, and it sounds great.

yeah i'm so skittish about putting down big $$ on hip hop shows though, my friends were just complaining abt. paying $25 at escape ultra lounge to see 3 hrs of local rap dudes then 30 minutes of Clipse (who didn't even go on until 1:30)

Rhys Chatham's Guitar Trio with special guests: Fog
Written in 1977, "Guitar Trio" is Rhys Chatham's signature composition, and with good reason. The word "seminal" was invented to describe it. With a single, repeated chord, Chatham permanently altered the DNA of rock by splicing the gritty, overtone-drenched minimalism of John Cale and Tony Conrad with the elemental fury of The Ramones. The amalgamation was inspired. It energized the downtown New York scene throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, and made Chatham a founding father of the notorious No Wave movement. The influence of "Guitar Trio" spread even farther as former students and ensemble members carried its shimmering swagger into the rock mainstream. When Sonic Youth are inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame (in, yes, Cleveland -- and you know it's gonna happen), listen for some G3. It's there.

In 2007 Chatham returns (he expatriated to Paris in 1987) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Guitar Trio" by performing it on tour throughout the US and Canada. And we don't mean it's on the set list; it is the set list. These will be no ordinary concerts, and the ensemble -- pumped up to a formidable six guitars at most shows -- will be no ordinary ensemble. Chatham will lead a band of all-stars at the Whole. The concerts will also feature the original visual projections created for the piece in 1977 by famed visual artist and feature-film director Robert Longo.

Together, Rhys Chatham and company will demonstrate to a new generation of fans the amazing feats that can be accomplished with one chord, six guitars, a rollicking rhythm section and amplifiers set to "Liquefy." The show will also be recorded, to be released on a G3-only CD. The title? It's obvious: Guitar Trio Is My Life.

Rhys will perform with:
Guitar: Erik Fratzke, (HAPPY APPLE, ZEBULON PIKE)
Guitar: Andrew Broder, (FOG)
Guitar: Todd Rittman, (US MAPLE)
Guitar: Ben Vida, (BIRDSHOW, TOWN AND COUNTRY)
Guitar: Rob Lowe, (90 DAY MEN, LICHENS)
Guitar: DAVID DANIELL (JONATHAN KANE, SAN AGUSTIN)
Bass: Greg Norton, (ex-HUSKER DÜ, GANGFONT FEATURING INTERLOPER)
Drums: Tim Glenn, (FOG, BATLORD)

A new, slim, trim, and vigorous Fog opens the show.

Get here early to see this once-in-a-lifetime event!

I saw a bit of them, thought it was good...I'm pretty much pro-anything w/Shaun Walker on drums, he's great....although..i would say that more members wouldn't hurt, i'm getting a little tired of the 2 man thing.

no, i've been really lazy w/new stuff lately, outside of emusic. also, i just got my vinyl back from the dude who had it on loan, so i've been sifting through that, which is taking up much listening time.

whoa what's up with this?

goole, Friday, 11 October 2013 15:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah i was actually at the turf last night and heard that.

not totally surprised, first avenue has been promoting shows at other venues like the turf, fine line, and cabooze pretty intensively for awhile now.

i think they've coveted a venue in between the entry and the main room. entry is zoned for about 200 i think but they've packed more in but it's miserable. but there's definitley shows where they could maybe sell like 350 tickets but that would be a miserable main room show, too packed for the entry, and good for the turf or fine line.

frankly, i've been getting worried about the turf...sc@l0n is a fucking crazy person and recently came in a threw a fit and canceled a bunch of booked shows and closed the club sunday - tues. my fear was that when light rail started next year some condo developer was gonna come through and offer him a few million to knock it down.

first ave will fix is up w/kitchen and new bathrooms, etc

all this said....it's bittersweet for me. for nearly 20 years it's been as close to a home bar as i've ever had, through the current regime and before that rob and leah rule....it's been a pretty free space to do whatever the fuck you wanted, stay until 3 am after a show if you knew the folks, hang out, do weird DJ nights, whatever....

was definitely an era that was gonna come to an end eventually.

the memory i will take is of my first band playing "shots" by neil young & crazy horse at about 45 minutes past bar time with my friend pretending to fellate me and shooting a fake kid's laser gun in the microphone

I think I missed the last Man Sized show but I saw the Entry gig ten (or more) yrs back during the holidays when Brian Paulson played with them, I seem to recall he had arrived striaght from the airport to get onstage with them (or maybe that's just how I want to remember it) and it was a great show on a perfect, snowy Mpls night.

I cracked a Man Sized Action joke in front a packed First Ave crowd at Replacements "tribute" thing, didn't get very many laughs.
