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!

M@tt He1g3s0n: oh u mad cuz im stylin on u (Matt Helgeson), Friday, 19 January 2007 15:47 (thirteen years ago) link

m@tt, i admire your enthusiasm

say it with blood diamonds (a_p), Friday, 19 January 2007 16:25 (thirteen years ago) link

i love gay beast!

geoff (gcannon), Friday, 19 January 2007 16:37 (thirteen years ago) link

geoff do you have the new gay beast full length?

they are super great.

M@tt He1g3s0n: oh u mad cuz im stylin on u (Matt Helgeson), Friday, 19 January 2007 16:43 (thirteen years ago) link

no, but I've seen them a couple times

how are FAGGOT??

and where do you look this stuff up? i'm always lamely browsing the a-list the day i want to go out.

geoff (gcannon), Friday, 19 January 2007 16:46 (thirteen years ago) link

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

artdamages (artdamages), Friday, 19 January 2007 16:48 (thirteen years ago) link

geoff chk yr email.

Other possible cool things:

Foundation Nightclub:

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...

M@tt He1g3s0n: oh u mad cuz im stylin on u (Matt Helgeson), Friday, 19 January 2007 16:52 (thirteen years ago) link

i feel weird lurking on that board cuz everyone seems to know each other or are in bands and whatnot.

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!

for out of town peeps, i am asking about Gay Witch Abortion the band, not the political stance, which i am 100% behind.

John Justen, Wednesday, 23 January 2008 22:47 (twelve years ago) link

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.

Jordan, Wednesday, 23 January 2008 22:56 (twelve years ago) link

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.

John Justen, Wednesday, 23 January 2008 22:57 (twelve years ago) link

yeah sorry i didn't go jordan. nomad is nice. you guys seem to be doing okay in mpls though, at least enough to make it worth the trip?

gbx, Monday, 10 November 2014 17:47 (six years ago) link

Silverteens is Mark Engebretson from Whole Lotta Loves, Tippy from Man Sized, and some other scene stalwarts from that era. I posted a video above, kinda Fleshtones-like garage rock covers. I thought they were totes fun last year.

Deliciously hard yet very accessible (Dan Peterson), Monday, 10 November 2014 18:01 (six years ago) link

Silverteens are a lot of fun. I probably won't make it to this show, but maybe.

my brass band is throwing a New Orleans night at the Parkway Theater next month. i'm very much looking forward to playing somewhere other than the Nomad (nothing against the Nomad, i love the Nomad, but it's been years since we've played anywhere else. before that it was the Cabooze and that defunct jazz club whose name i can't remember.).

significant old school mpls post punk news! (rifle sport is todd trainer of shellac's old band if you are unfamiliar)

Rifle Sport
Yesterday at 9:54am ·
One year after we recorded Voice of Reason at Blackberry Way, we went back to the studio to record a second album. It was never released and the multitrack and master tapes are long gone as far as we know. No idea what happened to them.
But Terry Katzman had a cassette of roughs and possibly final mixes, which he handed off to me last night and I'm currently digitizing.
Hoping to do some sort of release of it if it all turns out well. Some very cool and uncharacteristic Rifle Sport tunes. So far the recording sounds excellent.

M@tt, actually X-Boys came after both had broken up, I believe. (Hence the "Ex" Boys I think, although they used to consume a ton of Special Export!)

It's all 60s/70s rawk covers. They used to play The Uptown regularly, and later The Eagles in Seward. And recently at a KFAI benefit at the Turf:

Saw them last night in a tiny club in Chicago. Between being featured on Twin Peaks and opening for Jenny Lewis, looks like they're getting bigger. Also getting more 60s garage/pop as they grow. Great live show.
