Nov 18: Tom Carter, Andrew Barrett, 75 Dollar Bill

Tom Carter’s electric guitar work weaves strands of melody, drone, fuzz, and charged silence into intricately detailed instant compositions. Best known for his work with iconoclastic acid-folk improvisers Charalambides (which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991), Carter has focused on solo performances and recordings since 2012. His 2015 double LP on Three Lobed Records Long Time Underground is the final installment of a trilogy begun in 2009 with The Dance From Which All Dances Come and continued with 2014’s Numinal Entry.

Formed in New York City in 2012, 75 Dollar Bill is an instrumental duo drawing from various sources from around the world and across disciplines, everything from Mauritanian guitar to raw minimalism and blown-out urban blues.

Che Chen has recorded and toured playing violin, guitars and other instruments, with a diverse set of artists including True Primes, Jozef van Wissem, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Che-Shizu and Robbie Lee. His guitar work explores a variety of influences, including Mauritanian guitar, Indian music, North Mississippi guitar boogie, Sun Ra, Led Zeppelin, the Velvets, Henry Flynt, and DNA. Rick Brown has been playing drums and percussion on the downtown New York scene since the early ‘80s, and has recorded and toured with numerous bands, including V-Effect, Run On, Timber, Fish & Roses, and Chris Stamey, and has collaborated live or in the studio with Tortoise, Matmos, Yo La Tengo, Charles Hayward, Fred Frith, Malcolm Mooney, Elliott Sharp, Jean Smith, Mark Cunningham and many others.

Andrew Barrett (guitarist of Mountains and Rainbows) opens.

Saturday, Nov 21: Viands LP release show with Nate Young/John Olson/James Baljo Trio. Jonah Parzen-Johnson

Viands is a spontaneous collaboration between two auteurs of Detroit’s underground music scene: Joel Peterson (Chatoyant, Immigrant Suns, etc) and David Shettler (Moon Pool and Dead Band, etc). Temporal Relics, their debut album on Midwich, is a deep, reflective and fearless alternate-reality keyboard meditation that draws on the pair’s broad musical vision to explore new vistas. Temporal Relic #1 & #2 are carved out of the same continuous 40-minute session that marked the first time the pair sat down together and “just hit record.” Temporal Relics is a vast, expansive and moody inner-journey of epic proportion.

Opening the show is an electro-acoustic set with saxophone by NYC’s Jonah Parzen-Johnson, followed by a super-secret new trip-metal trio featuring Nate Young, John Olson and James Baljo.
Doors at 9 pm; $8
