Tuesday, November 21st, 9pm - Midnight: Barbez
On their latest project, "For Those Who Came After: Songs of Resistance from the Spanish Civil War," the Chamber-Rock ensemble Barbez cover vintage Anti-Fascist anthems. Barbez liberally incorporates avant-rock, contemporary classical, cumbia and flamenco styles to refresh anthems like “L’Internationale” (The International) and “Viva la Quince Brigada” (Long Live the Fifteenth Brigade). Bandleader Dan Kaufman is also a journalist. who has written extensively on the Spanish Civil War for The New York Times, The Nation, and The New York Observer. Over the course of that reporting he got to know many veterans of the Lincoln Brigade, inspired by their story enough to come up with this musical tribute. Barbez plays some of these anthems live on WFMU.

Tuesday, November 28th, 9pm - Midnight: The World of Captain Beefheart
The World of Captain Beefheart - Giving a few new spins to the music of Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart is a natural move for Guitarist Gary Lucas, who was a part of that world for a time. And who better to breathe new life into the Captain's vocals than the Soul Diva Nona Hendryx, founding member of Labelle and a much in demand singer. On a new 12-song disc, Hendryx and Lucas energetically dive into tunes from throughout Beefheart's catalog, with helped along the way by Drummer Richard Dworkin (Microscopic Septet), Bassist (and former WFMU host) Jesse Krakow and Keyboardist Jordan Shapiro. Nona Hendrix and Gary Lucas, along with their bandmates, play live and discuss how this all came together.
