Saw Why? last night for the first time in Berkeley. My bandmates and I all went together, it was beautiful. Early anticon ish has been a big influence on our development throughout the years so it was really great to experience it together. I visibly creeped out Josiah Wolf. Also Open Mike Eagle opened the show and I have been sleeping on him, his set was tight.

Was here last week. Just getting over the huge number of concerts. Seemed like a nice progressive city where you could bump into musicians at various places (Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Andy Sheppard at a single table by themselves in a Japanese restaurant or sitting with Bley and Swallow the next morning over breakfast or visiting with Philip Jeck at dinner another night, and so on). Musicians/artists seemed to be delighted and a bit surprised by the reception in a place like Knoxville, but two-thirds of the audience were from out-of-town. Good music, good food, good weather, and easy access to both the venues and the musicians made it a memorable event. Ready for next year.

Did you see the Gavin Bryant's performance of the Sinking of the Titanic/Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet?

"Bryars"

Just two of a whole slew of concerts and talks we went to - absolutely exhausting number of things to do and see.
"Jesus' Blood..." was Sunday afternoon and "...Titanic" was later that night (right after Henry Threadgill's Zooid).

Also, at the launch party on Thursday, Bryars said that his ensemble has never played in North America (!)
I was shocked by this (even tho, I think he has some kind of professorship in Canada these days).

Very jealous, sounds like a great experience.

It's pretty incredible each year.
Here's a PBS Newshour segment about the 2015 one
(Kronos, Terry Riley, et al.) - and you can see
highlights and street scenes of others on YT too.
Still a bit early for more '17 highlights, I think.

Spoiler for PBS Newshour 2015:


Spoiler for Xiu Xiu Twin Peaks:


Spoiler for Beiser Zepp Black Dog:

the guy on the left is Terry Riley's son Gyan and the drummer is Glenn Kotche from Wilco.


...and a short vid of Henry Grimes who had Nicole Mitchell (!), Tomeka Reid (!!), and Warren Smith (!!!) with him.

Spoiler for Henry Grimes:

I'm sure there'll be more as the days pass...

Rostasi, do you know of anything worthwhile going on in Dallas within the next month or two?

I'm so busy with my own projects that I really see very little in this city.
Most of what I experience is usually out of the country (Denmark this summer/fall).
I'm tempted to go see The Damned 40th Anniversary tour coming up in mid-May
at House of Blues, but other than that I can't really say. Also, I used to be a regular
member of the two local Indian music organizations that have their occasional great
concerts here, but I just haven't had the time lately.

I'm going to see The Damned in the beginning of May. Saw them a couple of years ago and they still sounded as good as ever.
