Thanks to all who made it out to the Cedar on Thursday evening. City Pages offered up a great synopsis of the event in print and photo form: http://blogs.citypages.com/gimmenoise/2011/08/coloring_time_debut.php
Some of the conspirators responsible for 318 Cafe and the Aster Cafe recently opened a new joint named Republic in the space that used to house Sgt. Prestons on seven corners. They are attempting to have live music that focuses on two-or-three member ensembles that perform in different configurations than is typical of each individual musician. For example, on Saturday 8/20, Casey O’Brien, Graham O’Brien, and I will be putting together a few new songs from a project called Proofreader that involves some sampling, drumming, bassing, and singing. We’ll be doing some Adam Svec tunes as well. Here’s the FB invite for more info: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=259584764071205
The show starts around 10:00PM and ends at 11:00PM. Make sure you hit up the West Bank Music Festival (https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=202324906484523) and then head down to Republic afterwards. Summer’s measures are ending… don’t miss the last chorus.
