It List: Wednesday


Eugene Chadbourne/Dennis Gonzalez Yells At Eels/Tid-bits Double Trio/DJ Wanz Dover (The Lounge): First, I want to let you know that the new Dennis Gonzalez album, "Renegade Spirits" is now available to order online, and at Yells At Eels and Akkolyte shows. Featuring the Gonzalez brothers on rhythm section duties, as well as Tim Green on sax and Famoudou Don Moye on percussion, you can order a copy here.

Eugene Chadbourne is one of those great, geeky figures in music that seem to be less and less commonplace: A category-defying virtuoso that has never turned his nose up at playing with a wide variety of people with less chops than he has, the results usually being far more interesting than what either party would attempt alone. Out of every artist on an oft-mentioned resume, the most impressive by far must be The Legendary Stardust Cowboy. A lot has been made of how weird he is, but Chadbourne's recent music is a little more straight-forward than some of his past work and collaborations, so those fearing a full-out free jazz/noise freakout probably shouldn't worry.

Art Show: "A Semester's Weight In Paper" and music by Doyen/Eyes And Ears/Magnets (Rubber Gloves): Gutterth sponsored event with prints and buttons for sale, as well as "live screen-printing." Dirty. Artists include Justin Jones, Mark Raymer, Adam Palmer, Julie Anderson, and many more.

Taxi Fare (Zubar)


Fishbone (The Door): Wait. What?

Out of all the people Chadbourne has played with, that's the most impressive to me personally. Sorry about the confusion.

that is a fucked up claim DL. You are allowed to have it obviously, but given the powerful laundry list of juggernauts and unique weirdos EC has played with, and not to mention based on the single LSC live set I've seen (though I'm not familiar w/ his recorded output), I'd have to disagree personally ...
