anticon. anniversary TONIGHT, NYE News From KF
The day is finally upon us, anticon.'s third annual ten year anniversary is TONIGHT. You already know who is playing and you already know where and what time it is, but if you don't then check the flyer at the bottom of the post. I don't want to start any rumors about tonight, but the recipe for cLOUDDEAD will be there and so will the motive to stir the ingredients. Lets groove tonight!
"Oakland musician Why? (aka Yoni Wolf), performed a haunting solo set at the Independent last night. He did a few songs acapella and played his Rhodes for the rest of the set.
The set was great, but nowhere near as long as I would have hoped. Probably around 25 minutes long. Then again, I just really wanted to hear him do a minimal version of Broken Crow again. This was the first Why? show I had seen in quite some time... maybe since the original Hymie's Basement show in Minneapolis (5 or 6 years ago)." [photo and writeup via doc pop]
