Here’s Theatre Intangible podcast #108: Savage Knights artist showcase, recorded in the basement of Noa Noa on April 5th, 2013.

Savage Knights are an avant-jazz and rock n’ roll instrumental band from Raleigh, North Carolina. The band features Mike Isenberg on drums, Joey Chorley on bass, Chris Eubank on cello and Crowmeat Bob on guitar, alto sax, and bass clarinet. On this podcast, they start things out with an experimental improvisation featuring Mike on my Hammond student-model organ and then they perform some of their prepared material. Enjoy!

We at Noa Noa house are extremely proud and lucky to be hosting Simon Joyner for the Nashville stop on his winter living room tour.  The event takes place Friday, December 13th at 8 p.m. Tickets are ADVANCE SALES ONLY. Purchase yours at this link. Update: I just heard from Simon that they will also accept cash at the door! $15, exact change preferred.

Who is Simon Joyner? Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes and the Desaparecidos called him, “probably my favorite songwriter in the world.”  He’s also one of my favorites. More from Simon’s wiki:

Considered by some to be the forefather of the burgeoning Omaha music scene, he has profoundly influenced the music of Bright Eyes. Joyner also collaborated with John Darnielle, of The Mountain Goats, and Beck listed Joyner in his top 10 albums when asked by Rolling Stone. He is also famous for the so called “Peel Incident,” when famous British DJ John Peel played his album The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll from beginning to end on air.

Don’t miss your chance to see a true music pioneer in an intimate setting.

Simon’s new album Ghosts is available on vinyl and mp3 at his website, Amazon.com, and your favorite independent record shop.

Chris Davis organized an incredible lineup here at Theatre Intangible h.q. aka Noa Noa for Saturday, November 9th.

  • Nathan Bowles & Scott Verrastro
  • Joseph Allred
  • Noa (with Chris Davis)

Blacksburg, Virginia’s Nathan Bowles and Philadelphia’s Scott Verrastro lead very busy lives with their bands and solo projects. Bowles is a member of Pigeons, Pelt and Black Twig Pickers among others. Verrastro performs in Kohoutek, Kuschty Rye ErgoInsect Factory (leader Jeff Barsky played Noa Noa earlier this year) and many more projects.

For this tour, they’re combining forces as an experimental improv percussion duo. If the songs from their new album Polar Satellites are any measure, the show at Noa Noa is a can’t-miss evening of music.


The wonderful Joseph Allred plays fingerstyle instrumental music on an acoustic guitar.


Noa is an improvising musician and multi-instrumentalist, performing on woodwinds, various percussion instruments, hurdy gurdy and other instruments. She will improvise with Chris Davis (The Cherry Blossoms).

More info on the Facebook event page. I hope to see you at the show!
