What A Week, NYC
As if seeing Little Joy at The Virgin Store and then Zomes, Fursaxa and Brightblack Morning Light (all of whom rocked my world) at Le Poisson Rouge tonight wasn't enough; this is one fucking great week for live music! Tomorrow, well I guess tonight, you can catch Zach Hill (Hella/Marnie Stern/Team Sleep/The Ladies), Subtle and recent FMLY favs Pattern Is Movement at The Knitting Factory. If you're already planning on going and want to know about the mentioned 'Peer Pressure' is that is listed to play with Zach, you may want to read his explanation.
"HELLO ! TO THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN INQUIRING ABOUT WHAT AND WHO "PEER PRESSURE" MAY BE IT'S ACTUALLY MY DRUM SET! HAHA THATS STRAIGHT TALK! IN THE FUTURE THIS MONIKER WILL MOST LIKELY DEFINE A COLLECTIVE OF HUMAN BEINGS PLAYING SONGS AND MY DRUM SET, BUT FOR THIS TOUR ITS A METAPHOR FOR THE DRUMS AND THATS ABOUT ALL I'M BRINGING AND ALL IM PLAYING. TO MAKE IT CLEAR SO THERES NO CONFUSION ABOUT MY UPCOMING PERFORMANCES I AM PERFORMING A 45 MINUTE NON STOP HEAVILY IMPROVISED RENDITION OF THE TRACK "NECROMANCER" OFF OF MY NEWEST SOLO RELEASE. THIS WILL BE ME ON DRUMS AND THE LAPTOP ON LAPTOP OR THE IPOD ON IPOD. I PLAN ON PERFORMING THE MORE SONG ORIENTED MATERIAL OFF THE ALBUM WITH A FULL BAND IN THE THE FUTURE BUT FOR MANY REASONS IT WAS UNREALISTIC AT THIS JUNCTURE. SO THIS IS HOW I WILL BE EXPRESSING MYSELF IN THE NOW ASIDE FROM THE SHOWS WERE ITS NOTED THAT I'LL HAVE SOMEONE AWESOME SITTING IN WITH ME!" [zach hill]
Tomorrow night's awesome guest chillin' with Zach on stage will be Marco Benevento who is a brilliant keyboardist whether you want to hear some circuit bending, post-jazz or anything in between. If not for the already guaranteed night of incredible music, come to say bye to Subtle as the collective have announced that they're going on hiatus from this project.
For further anticon happenings, the collective has just released the flyer for their Third Annual Ten Year Anniversary. This year's party will bring you Themselves (doseone & jel), Yoni Wolf aka Why?, Odd Nosdam + Jel, Sole, Alias, Buck 65, pedestrian + DJ Thanksgiving Brown. This incredible night is December 18 at The Knitting Factory and you can buy tickets here.
On Thursday PopGun Booking has a great event at Glasslands. DJ Kid Color will be on deck with music supplied by Anamanaguchi, The French Horn Rebellion and Savoir Adore.
Friday brings us the best way to end the week - Stars of the Lid, Hammock and Jocelyn Bonadio at Le Poisson Rouge. Purchase tickets here.
If you're in the mood for a much cheaper week then you can see Peter & the Wolf multiple times. Tonight Red will be at The Studio at Webster Hall, Wednesday he'll be at Union Hall and Saturday he'll be at The Silent Barn. Chances are he'll be playing house parties in Brooklyn each night which will lead into next week perfectly with a Brooklyn house show by none other than Pat the Bunny aka Wingnut Dishwasher's Union. Head over to the Peter and the Wolf MySpace for ALL NEW MUSIC from his new record including a completely redone version of "Safe Travels." You can also purchase the record [pictured above] once you're there.
MoveOn.org is being gracious and giving away Shepard Fairey designed Obama victory stickers [pictured above]. Head over here and get yours.
Now I couldn't send you off to bed or work or school without some jammin' tunes to listen to for the day so here's a little somthing special. Odd Nosdam recently posted some beats to download for free, he made them 2002-2003 and has attached the title CIRCUS faux PREZ beats!. He also posted a sweet mixtape, get 'em both below.
