MonkeyClaus madness on Wednesday

August 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments · By

MonkeyClaus is having a show on Wednesday night; it’s been too long since I got out there, and even longer since I saw a show there.

Matthew Clark describes it thusly:

monkeyclaus will be hosting some traveling musicians from vermont who are on tour by bicycle on aug 27th, a wednesday.
the two performers are kurt weisman, formerly of the vermont folk collective “feathers” and currently of the stoner metal band “witch” and raub rob. kurt plays excellent acoustic guitar and sings in a beautiful high falsetto. he has a magical entrancing sound. raub roy uses dictaphones and tape loops, homemade speakers and balloons to create a very fun performance, heavy on performance elements which provokes some really amazing sounds in the process. these guys played in my backyard in brooklyn and it was awesome. they are friends of doofgoblin. maybe we can get him to play too. anyhow, please help to get the word out and some folks out to the studio for the show.

If you’ve never been to MonkeyClaus, it’s worth the trip. It’s an old barn and farmhouse down by Wintergreen; the barn has been converted into a recording studio and every now and then the Monkeys invite their friends over for a nice little show. Good folks and good music. I’m carpooling down there with John, if anyone wants a ride.
