I may miss this one, the big performer lineup looks Mojo-ey, and there's just not enough I'm willing to travel to see. Not ever been a Zorn fan, really. What's the deal with having a Zorn minifestival two years in a row?

Zorn did a stint out here at the Chapel and I caught the Terry Riley/Zorn/Laurie Anderson combination -- and I mean, with that in my brain, any other performance might just seem secondary. (As it is the timing is always wrong for this for me so I'll have to ponder from afar.)

I think the back-to-back Zorn feature is just that he had a great time last year and really wanted to come back and do something as part of his 70th birthday plans.

Besides Zorn stuff I’m super psyched for the Vijay Iyer combos, William Parker, James Blood Ulmer, Kali Malone. And then some people like Los Lobos and Rickie Lee Jones, who are obviously on the Mojo end of things, sure, but I’ve never seen so I’ll be happy to.

If I lived closer to Knoxville I’d do it no doubt, I’d be interested in the Elaine Radigue and Annea Lockwood stuff for sure.

This awesome looking fest always takes place during our spring break, so I can never make it. Sigh.

I still think that this years + last years lineups is missing something more harsh.

Altered Beast, produced by Richard Dashut, is kind of his grunge Rumours – check out the bgd vic on “Time Capsule.” “Someone to Pull the Trigger” may be his most moving song.
