Coming to Detroit

Thursday, May 31: Eugene Chadbourne
One of America’s musical treasures, Eugene Chadbourne is a human-repository of song, the greatest living protest-song writer and a singular musician who has explored nearly every corner of music from the last 100 years of so- most often as a guitarist and banjo-player. From Nashville to noise to Biker Rock to free improvisation, “Eugenuis” has been doing it all- and since the early 70’s. He’s performed and recorded with Don Helms (Hank William’s pedal steel player), John Zorn, The Violent Femmes, Han Bennink. Charles Tyler, Fred Frith, Jimmy Carl Black and hundreds of others- all while putting out dozens of his own recordings as a leader. His newest release reunites him in a duo with the man who first encouraged to become a full-time musician over 40 years ago: Anthony Braxton.
