Volcano Insurance in Madison


From Surrounded by Reality Music:

7:30 (doors)
$7 at the door

Luke Polipnick – guitar/compositions
Chris Bates – double/electric basses
Joey Van Phillips – drums/percussion

Avant rock-jazz trio Volcano Insurance makes their return to Madison this Friday, bringing with them a new set of music composed by SBR veteran Luke Polipnick. This band has become the stuff of legend in the Twin Cities, performing infrequently enough to garner serious attention from the jazz cognoscenti at their rare live appearances. This year marks their fifth year as a working band, and their sound has distilled down from an “everything goes” compositional approach, to an ear-bending punk jazz aesthetic.

A bottle of champagne to be given away to the best dressed beast.

A few descriptions to whet your palate:

Dream Zoo is a transposition of a dream, an absurd spoof on Classical Lieder of the early 20th century. Composer and frontwoman Valerie Kuehne pioneers a genre best described as Avant Storytelling, wherein genre playfully and impressively breaks down. Rock, jazz, and folk… idioms are evoked and laced with conceptualized improvisation, fed with the energy of a… late night punk show. Dark and childish emotions are conjured. Ms. Kuehne’s style has been compared to Harry Partch, PDQ Bach, Diamanda Galas, although she prefers to describe experience in general as uncategorizable. Joining Ms. Kuehne on this tour are Jeffrey Young on violin, Lucio Menegon on electric guitar, and Jason Anastasoff on upright bass.

http://dreamzoo.bandcamp.com/

Little Band of Sailors is the ensemble of theatrical rock collaborations crafted by Rachel Mason, whose lineup for this tour includes classically trained bass clarinetist Mara Meyer and punk drummer Vanessa Alvarez. Mason has been described as “Alice Cooper meets Carole King in another dimension” and “Mason is the real deal. She writes songs that are truly works of genius. Very few people invent reality like she does. Her songs are supremely, supremely powerful.” Mason’s work has been championed by Josephine Foster, with whom she has toured in the U.S. and Europe. In 2010, she self-released Code Flight, which was called “one of the greatest albums of all time.” Her upcoming album Woman with a Suitcase will feature a cover image by the historic conceptual artist John Baldessari, who recently exhibited his retrospective at the LACMA and the Met Museum. The album will be released digitally and on 12” vinyl in February 2012 on Shatter Your Leaves with production by Stu Watson.

“If Salvador Dali had done music he would have paled in comparison to the truly eclectic Borts Minorts. One part performance art, one part manic techno musical extravaganza, all around fantastically mesmerizing. In his trademark unitard, and flanked by his accompanying backup dancers, Borts manages to blend more action into 45 minutes than a full week at the circus. Borts Minorts is Cirque du Soleil on acid, no chaser.”
Mike and Jenny Cash – SF WEEKLY

Yva Las Vegass -
Venezuelan born Seattle native dangerously outspoken woman. Spontaneity broker and a shit talker. Can love anyone and will do it. Seeking truth without fear of being wrong cuz then I can be right. Have sang my way thru life and will do it till I die. I have learn to love all my faces and one day I’ll love yours too. Dream of being very old sitting on the beach eating fried fish on a dixie plate and dread the fear of loosing my life to someone else’s rage. Love soft girls lips and knock knock jokes. Have come all this way…might as well keep on going.

Upsilon Acrux /Afuche (double header! two bands for one admission!)

AFUCHE: Rueben Sindo Acosta (keyboard, drum, vocals) Zach Ryalls (guitar) Andrew Carrico (baritone sax) Denny Tek (bass) Ian Chang (drums)
Upsilon Acrux is an instrumental quintet (dual guitars, dual drums). Their music is generally very intense, loud, hard-hitting and unbelivably virtuosic. Upsilon Acrux’s music is demanding on many levels, but mostly it demands that you listen to it a number of times because only after you’ve gotten familiar with it can you get past the sheer complexity and onslaught of it all and hear the amazing musicality of what they are doing. This combination of blazingly fast, interwoven musical lines delivered at blinding speed mixed with their unique melodic sense makes Upsilon’s music instantly recognizable. They are one of the most creative and original of the shockingly large number of great, post-punk, avant-garde rock bands today.

Based out of Brooklyn, NY and creating a group sound that is truly their own, Afuche is a band that needs to be heard by lovers of adventurous, modern progressive music! Formed in 2008, they have been evolving their sound by writing, performing, and touring non-stop – it was at one of their many shows where we found them and watched their continued development with keen interest. The fearless intensity and the strong group dynamic in the playing — extremely notable in such a young band — pours through the speakers; their sound is catchy and mesmerizing and will have you moving in ways you never thought possible.

The band was formed by Gregg to perpetuate the spirit of live performance in which this music was created by performing this great music live. FIFTEEN DOLLARS

11/23 Wednesday (CWL)
8 pm
Cellular Chaos
Weasel Walter (guitar) Ceci Moss (bass guitar) Marc Edwards (drums)
Cellular Chaos is an iconoclastic new union of veteran experimentalists. Former Flying Luttenbachers leader Weasel Walter deploys cacophonous lead guitar in a post-Keiji Haino/Arto Lindsay/Greg Ginn/Sonny Sharrock vein over the morbid fuzz bass of Ceci Moss and the assaultive drum pounding of Cecil Taylor/David S. Ware alumni Marc Edwards. The touchstones for Cellular Chaos’ sound are old school No Wave, Post-Punk and hi-energy electronic free improvisation. You may rejoice, you may vomit, but you will not forget this wild performance.

10 pm
Jason Robinson’s Janus Ensemble
Jason Robinson (tenor sax) Marty Ehrlich (alto sax and bass clarinet) Nir Felder (guitar) Drew Gress (bass) George Schuller (drums)
Accomplished reedist and composer Jason Robinson leads a stellar band, all of whom are distinguished figures in jazz and improvised music as well as all being top-drawer bandleaders in their own right.

Carlo De Rosa’s Cross-Fade
Carlo De Rosa (bass) Mark Shim (sax) Vijay Iyer (piano) Justin Brown (drums)
Proficient, creative, a first-call, in-demand bassist, Carlo De Rosa has earned a reputation of very high standards. As a composer and band-leader of the quartet Cross-Fade, he also has very high standards, but outside of New York City clubs, this work has not been widely recognized. Brain Dance is set to remedy that situation! The compositions give the players malleable material with which to work with; there’s plenty of thematic material, but also plenty of room for them to add their individuality. The end result is greater than even the sum of their musical talents and the compositions. The music constantly moves between the modern, avant-garde and electric jazz worlds, never standing still, but taking the most interesting and attractive elements of these worlds and combining them into a new whole.

10 pm
Dead Cat Bounce
Matt Steckler (woodwinds) Jared Sims (woodwinds) Terry Goss (woodwinds) Charlie Kohlhase (woodwinds) Dave Ambrosio (bass) Bill Carbone (drums)
A marvelous sax quartet plus bass and drums that is modern with its own strong voice, but swings like Mingus!

11/26 Saturday
8 pm
Birdsongs of the Mesozoic
Erik Lindgren (piano) Rick Scott (keyboards) Ken Field (reeds) Michael Bierylo (guitar, computer)
In existence for over 30 years, Boston’s acclaimed Birdsongs of the Mesozoic play a unique mix of rock, punk, classical, minimalism, and free-form music, with occasional forays into even more unexpected directions. They have remained fresh and always changing, while retaining their distinctive style.

10 pm
Rattlemouth
Roger Carroll, Danny Finney (saxes) Robbie Kinter (drums) Marc S. Langelier (bass) George M. Lowe (guitar)
Rattlemouth emerged from the ashes of Richmond’s legendary Orthotonics in 1989. Their sound has gradually morphed from their art-punk/art-rock roots towards a Ethio-Jazz powerhouse. They blaze through spirited instrumental updates of classic tunes from around the world (Mali, Ethiopia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Cuba, Jamaica, Lebanon, etc.), plus similarly flavored originals.

11/27 Sunday
8 pm
Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores
Alec K. Redfearn (accordion, vocals) Frank Difficult (objects) Orion Rigel Dommisse (organ, vocals) Matt McLaren (percussion) Christopher Sadlers (contrabass) Ann Schattle (horn)
This unique and marvelous ensemble from Providence, Rhode Island has been in existence for a 15 years, bringing their very original music to audiences in the US and Europe. Alec’s songs are very dark and delivered with just the right parts of dread and humor and The Eyesores are a dream backing ensemble to anyone’s songs!

10 pm
Ergo
Brett Sroka (trombone, laptop) Shawn Baltazor (drums) Jason Moran (piano, rhodes electric piano)
Ergo is a trio using Rhodes electric piano and analog synth, drums and trombone and laptop. Their music is one of stark melodic beauty, enveloping electro-acoustic texture and empathic imagination. They have been playing together since 2003, combining the modern sound of electronica and beyond with jazz and ambient music. The basic building blocks of their sound are beats and electronics, trombone, the Fender Rhodes and drums. The music here generally develops slowly but it’s also very accessible while remaining something that holds active interest.

11/28 Monday
7:15 and 9 pm

11/29 Tuesday
8 pm
Forever Einstein
Kevin Gerety (bass), Charles O’Meara (guitar), John Roulat (drums)
Forever Einstein explores the possibilities of the simplest of rock line-ups; the guitar/bass/drums trio. They produce energized music that you can feel and think about by taking the power and aggression of rock and applying more adventurous compositional techniques than most rock music gets treated to. Einstein’s CDs and immediately identifiable “power trio with smarts” sound has won them a broad range of acclaim. All three players are really superlative musicians, & there is a ton of great ideas percolating around here.

10 pm
Doctor Nerve
Leo Ciesa (drums) Nick Didkovsky (guitars) Yves Duboin (soprano sax) Rob Henke (trumpet) Ben Herrington (trombone) Jesse Krakow (bass) Michael Lytle (bass clarinet) Kathleen Supove (keyboards)
Emerging in the early 80s out of the Creative Music Studio and finding fertile ground in the early ’80s “downtown/punk jazz” scene, NYC’s own Doctor Nerve have been dazzling and amazing audiences for nearly 30 years! Keeping a surprisingly stable personnel throughout the years, the group have always been known for their screamingly high-energy performances that combine elements of metal, artrock, punk jazz and improvisation.

11/30 Wednesday (JM)
8 pm
Zevious
Mike Eber (guitar) Johnny DeBlase (bass) Jeff Eber (drums)
Zevious are a unique electric jazz band for the modern era. This instrumental power trio are equally influenced by the sound of early John McLaughlin/Tony Williams Lifetime, Meshuggah, the “downtown punk-jazz-harmolodic” school (James Blood Ulmer/Music Revelation Ensemble, Decoding Society, Curlew), Magma, Vijay Iyer and Ben Monder among others. This is not your father’s jazz band.

10 pm
Gutbucket
Ken Thompson (sax) Ty Citerman (guitar) Eric Rockwin (bass) Adam D. Gold (drums)
The twelve year-old Brooklyn-based quartet continuously push their composer-driven, art-rock-tainted chamber jazz into new terrain. The group attacks their jazz with the ferocity usually reserved for punk. Their music is filled with layers of mature arrangements and a full-throttle blend of energy, chops, melody, intricacy and noise.
