Show experimental shows coming to Detroit:
Wednesday, Nov. 4th: Marble Sheep, Plastic Crime Wave Sound, Kat Hernandez/Eve Risser Duo, Dark Red at CAID
This night of psyche rock and related musics features Japan’s Marble Sheep, which is making its US debut after years of recording. Marble Sheeps is being lead through America by Chicago’s own champions of psyche, acid rock and folkloric exotica, Plastic Crime Wave Sound. Former Ann Arbor native Katt Hernandez (violin) has been an important part of the creative music scenes in Boston and Philadelphia for years now. Her duo with Paris based pianist Eve Risser features prepared piano and extended technique in a free improvisational setting. Somewhat newer Detroit duo Dark Red (featuring Rob Smith of Paik and Chris Turner) opens the show and scene stalwarts The Frustrations close it. Doors at 8 pm; $7.
Friday Nov. 6th: night one of Lac La Belle’s CD release weekend, with The Raincoats and Technical Drawings at MOCAD
Our group formerly known as Jennie and The Sure Shots has changed its name to Lac La Belle and is playing two shows to support the Detroit release of our new, eponymous CD. Our urban hipster show will be at The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Lac La Belle will open with a medium length set, followed by Technical Drawings- the latest project of pianist and Table of the Elements artist Melissa St. Pierre. Her interests range from Cage-ian and Partch piano works to Japanese acid rock clamor and many points between. Detroit’s Sugar Coats, featuring members of Lee Marvin Computer Arm and Detroit Cobras, close the show with some Flying Burrito Brothers style country rock. Doors at 8 pm; $6. Mocad is located at 4454 Woodward, Detroit.
Saturday, Nov. 7th: night two of Lac La Belle’s CD release weekend at The Yes Farm
The second night of our CD release weekend takes place at a favorite newer venue The Yes Farm (located at 3410 Farnsworth, Detroit- at the corner of Farnsworth and Moran). Agrarian hipsters can enjoy two sets of music by Lac La Belle following the Harvest Festival in the heart of Detroit’s longest running urban farm. Doors at 10:30, first set at 11 pm; $5.
