Man Forever (photo by Joshua Bright)

Saturday at Noa Noa (house), we have a very special treat for drum fans: MAN FOREVER, the solo project of Oneida drummer John Colpitts (AKA Kid Millions), will perform on the back porch! If you don’t know Colpitt’s unique style of drumming, check out the clip below. Man Forever just released a new album on Thrill Jockey. Buy it here.

Rick Moody of therumpus.net says of the project:

Kid Millions, who, as drummer, is unsurpassed in his generation, finds an opportunity with slippery polyrhythmical approaches here, as if to say that the human drummer is the thing that is most controversial in the age of the click track, so there‚Äôs no pulse, no melodic home, no melody at all, really, just the thunderous ebbing and flowing of multiple rolls and fills…

Also on the bill are the always amazing SQUARE PEOPLE and Knoxville’s WHITE GREGG, described by Eric Dawson as, “postpunk, no wave, Beefheart and whatever U.S. Maple and Storm and Stress were (sort-of-but-not-really math rock) are all reference points, sometimes all within one song.” Any band that draws comparisons to Captain Beefheart, U.S. Maple, and Storm & Stress are ok in my book.

More info on the Facebook event page.
