Mu live at Hive 13, Cincinnati, OH, 2011

Douglas Lucas live at Hive 13, Cincinnati, OH, 2011


I’ve been letting a few great shows slip through the cracks, not as intentional slights but because I’m finding it difficult to keep up with everything under my current day job. Most notably, Mike Kluge hosted another successful Future Night at Queen Arts Collective. Stephen Trageser attended and has a review over at the Nashville Scene.

Tonight, Louisvillian Douglas Lucas (of Mu and the founder of Louisville Experimental Festival) will be back in town to deinstall his amazing art exhibition at Fort Houston. While here, he’s performing again at Betty’s, this time with Brady Sharp, Spirit Iron Knife, and Satan Pubes. If you missed him at the beginning of this month, don’t miss him tonight!

More info on the Facebook event page.

Cher Von live at Free Form Friday

Cher Von live at Free Form Friday


My day job has prevented me from going into detail about upcoming shows, but I’m trying to at least keep up with announcing them. On Thursday, January 15th, Louisville’s Champion Zoz and Cher Von join Nashville’s Brady Sharp, No Milk, and Satan Pubes.

Chris Davis writes of Champion Zoz on the Facebook event page:

Very much looking forward to Champion ZOZ…a collaborative repertory plumbing the songbooks of State Champion‘s Ryan Davis and the mercurial and reliably strange Mikey Turner of ZOZ, Cross, Ma Turner and Warmer Milks.

Former Nashvillian Cher Von is one of my favorite musicians. Hear her on this Theatre Intangible improv. She’ll be accompanied by local keyboardist Matt Endahl.

Check out the artist streams below.

State Champion’s songs can’t be embedded, but you can check them out here.

There’s a great lineup at Betty’s this Saturday, featuring Philippe Petit, XAMBUCA, Robert Bond, and trans*.

French sound artist Phillippe Petit, not to be confused with the high-wire artist of the same name, creates music with bizarre instruments like the Electric Psalterion, Hackbrett Cymbalum, and Yuri Landman’s Caterpillar Drum Guitar. He also employs turntables, synthesizers, and unconventional percussive objects. He’s worked with artists such as Lydia Lunch, Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), and Murcof.

Asheville’s XAMBUCA is Chandra Shukla’s sound art project. Chandra has worked with artists such as Genesis P-Orridge and Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster).

Robert Bond is a Nashville percussionist, electronic artist, producer and composer. He was featured on Theatre Intangible episode 105. For this show, he’ll be performing a very special solo set.

trans* is a Murfreesboro sound artist utilizing minimalist, vocal-heavy harsh noise.

Phillipe Petit will not likely pass through Nashville again for a very long time, so don’t miss your chance to see some of the best sound artists around!

More info on the Facebook event page.
