good weekend for music in Cleveland...Richard Pinhas on Friday at a gallery, and Duane Pitre and Eleh on Saturday at MOCA.

whoa there...
  Thu. 9/26/13 3:25pm Davis:

good week for music in leeds this week too-- there were 30 drummers and drumkits outside the art gallery on sunday afternoon, and vibracathedral orchestra in an old cinema in bradford with films and some kind of performance artist last night-- great
  Thu. 9/26/13 3:26pm blee:

Andy Lives! ....... I hope, because that would be a grand practical joke. I am loving the mind warping audio Fabio.
Avatar Thu. 9/26/13 3:26pm Loren:

@DCE - Just saw Pinhas in a little boutique here in Sacramento. He played with a Bay Area guitarist named Barry Cleveland. The set was phenomenal and much needed, as there has been a drought of experimentalism in the area. Check out my buddy's channel, lots of great performances: tinyurl.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 3:27pm steve:

that sounds great DCE
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 3:28pm tim from champaign:

Sounds like good listening, DCE. I found out that William Parker Quartet is playing in town it late October. Stoked on that.
  Thu. 9/26/13 3:28pm nic:

wow i love all of this
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 3:29pm DCE:

yeah, sweet, Loren...I know he's collaborating with some of my friends that night too! I would think the Bay area would have lots of stuff going on.

Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:36pm Cecile:

they donated their prize to arts programs in Quebec prisons, which is good.
  Thu. 9/26/13 4:37pm ifny:

Godspeed You! Black Emperor was just awarded the Polaris Prize in Canada. This is an award that is given regardless of genre or sales history; it's artistic merit only. They weren't critical of the prize -- their statement was critical of having an awards gala in a time of austerity. http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/polaris-winner-critical-of-award-gala-in-a-time-of-austerity-1.1865716
  Thu. 9/26/13 4:37pm ifny:

They were also critical of allowing a car company to sponsor the gala while the polar ice caps are melting "live-streaming" this summer.

I'll also add, as if they weren't already my biggest band crush on the planet, that they are donating the $30,000 prize to setting up a music education program that will provide instruments to inmates in Quebec prisons.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:40pm Cecile:

you know, the ex are about as hardline as GYBE are, politically, but they seem like they would be so much more fun to hang out with.

"that's what mama said, mama said..." clap with me now!

Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:45pm DCE:

wouldn't you rather hang out with The Arcade Fire (hahaha!)
  Thu. 9/26/13 4:45pm ifny:

@Cecile Oh I don't know about that. They know how to have a good toss up, and they want to bring the crud back to the scene: "'Maybe the next celebration should happen in a cruddier hall, without the corporate banners and culture overlords. and maybe a party thusly is long overdue.'" -GYBE on the gala
  Thu. 9/26/13 4:46pm gasrainbow:

Wasn't there a movie where the prisoners used musical instruments to make a great escape? (wait, wasn't that the Husker Du?)
  Thu. 9/26/13 4:46pm ifny:

But then I think talking and sex go together, so maybe I'm biased.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 4:47pm Andrew Waterloo:

It's just in GY!BE character to release the occasional manifesto-like press release.

less talk, more grunt
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 4:48pm Andrew Waterloo:

I saw Esmerine a few weeks ago (side project of Godspeed) and they seemed like nice people.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:48pm Cecile:

Eh. I had my "band crush" on them a while back, but it just didn't last long. It kind of ended after I saw them live.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:48pm glenn:

i'd hang out with arcade fire, at least in montreal.
  Thu. 9/26/13 4:50pm Dean:

Not solicited, but my two cents about Godspeed. I saw them once, at Victoriaville, At the time, late '90s, maybe 2000, they didn't seem to be about "cruddier" anything. Sure, that was pre-this-particular-austerity, but I thought the backdrop projections of black-and-white movie clips were just a wee bit pretentious and overwrought. While I appreciate their nod to Russel Brand, I'm not sure they have earned their place to pontificate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 4:51pm tim from champaign:

Arcade Fire's music makes me want to start punching people out. Are they fun to party with?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 4:51pm Andrew Waterloo:

Godspeed is also opening for Nine Inch Nails.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:53pm Chris from DC:

Yes, love this Gravity Adjusters record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 4:53pm Andrew Waterloo:

I think Godspeed is more like Daft Punk or Burial where they're pretty hardcore about projecting a particular aesthetic that isn't necessarily who they are at home.
Avatar Thu. 9/26/13 4:55pm Loren:

I'd like to hang out with The Dead C. Hung out with Robbie after a gig once... he was gravely disappointed show attendees weren't dropping acid and smoking foot long blunts... I told him we did that last week. Only yoga and greek yogurt this week.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:55pm Cecile:

that makes sense, Andrew. it's just not an aesthetic that I'm into.

But what do I know? I own Ratt records.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:55pm Cecile:

that's great, Loren!
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:55pm common:

nothin' wrong with ratt, cecile.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:56pm Cecile:

Well, just the first EP and LP and the Round and Round single. I guess that counts as "records"
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:57pm Cecile:

I thought their songs were gooder than the average glam metal band.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:58pm glenn:

bad grammar alert; that's MORE gooder, cecile. sheeesh.
Avatar    Thu. 9/26/13 4:59pm Cecile:

@Chris... yeah, pretty much the same band, jumped the gun... so radically different than their early stuff. Wonder what these folks are up to these days?

Oh Fabio, please keep losing it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/26/13 5:12pm tim from champaign:

Well, here's how my friends described their resemblance observation after seeing Dead C a few years ago. "You totally look like Bruce Russell. You guys have the same hair, glasses and dorky button up shirts. Plus he was really drunk and kept hitting himself in the head with his guitar. It was weird how much you guys look alike."
Avatar Thu. 9/26/13 5:12pm Loren:

Love that song! Thank you, Cecile!

Was that a picture of Lando Calrissian in his Jabba the Hut disguise at the very beginning?

How can you go wrong with song titles like "Taliban! Our Hot Women Soldiers Will Turn Your Women Gay!"-- "I Sure Know A Lot About Afghanistan So Let's Invade It (Or Make A Record About It)" -- "I Wipe My Ass With Your Yellow Ribbon" -- "Take The Red Out Of The Canadian Flag And You Get Surrender (We Are Wolves Remix)" -- srsly.
