Gutbucket Chamber Orchestra at REDCAT

From the Los Angeles Times:

Over two aggressively category-defying sets at REDCAT Monday night, Gutbucket worked a jagged yet fertile seam between jazz and rock highlighted by on-a-dime twists in tempo, time signatures and mood — often within the same song. With deep roots in the downtown New York City avant-jazz scene of the early ’00s, Gutbucket bears hints of the klezmer-dusted fireworks of John Zorn in saxophonist-ringleader Ken Thomson’s excursions along with the bent effects-pedal workouts of Sonic Youth that can be traced in guitarist Ty Citerman. But the band’s unpredictable sound is harder to pigeonhole.
