Tavo Carbone

April 30th, 2009 · 3 Comments · By

There’s a great show at the Tea House tonight, but it’s not a name you’re likely to be familiar with. Tavo Carbone is an exceptional songwriter, somewhere loosely in the vein of Tom Waits and Frank Zappa and other oddball geniuses. His arrangements are lush and orchestral and sound as if they were filtered through a gramaphone. Anyway, […]

Wednesday at the Tea Bazaar, Film Society

April 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

Well, the WTJU marathon is now over, and life is returning to something resembling normal (unfortunately it’s also returning to cool & rainy, but I’m not too disheartened).

the End of the WTJU Marathon: Venetian Snares, Acid Mothers Temple

April 26th, 2009 · 3 Comments · By

The WTJU marathon ends tonight… or should I say, very early tomorrow morning. Monday 1-3am is my usual weekly time-slot, and I’m doing a show then —  and I had the bright idea of extending the marathon and staying up for another 3 hours so I could do a fourth show. It’s been really fun, […]

Tonight at IS, it’s Sarah White, Straight Punch to the Crotch, and someone named Billy Baritone; I have a lot of stuff to do, but I may try to make it out for that one.   At the Tea Bazaar, it’s Ben Arthur with Bobby St. Ours (who hasn’t played here in a while … […]

CAN, busted phone

April 24th, 2009 · Comments Off on CAN, busted phone · By

The Can show went excellently well; thanks so much to everyone who pledged to the station, and thanks to DJ Splinterfoot for kicking ass and answering phones. I managed to fit in every song I wanted to include, and we raised more money than I thought we would!  I have a high-quality recording of the […]
