We Interrupt This Album to Tell You About a Gig

We’re serving as the choir this Saturday for “Here Come the Warm Jets: LIVE!” which, as the title suggests, will be a live performance of Brian Eno’s great first album, Here Come the Warm Jets. Indie music stalwart and all-around good guy Rob Christiansen, from Eggs, and also from Grenadine, not to mention from East Ghost West Ghost, has put together an all-star band to play the album with a rotating cast of semi-famous indie singers. We’re not sure if we’re allowed to name any of the singers yet, but we can tell you WNYC’s John Schaefer will be emceeing the night. And, as we might have mentioned two or three sentences ago, we will be doing all the choir parts along with some percussion and quite possibly a dance move or two. Seriously.

The show is at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 21, at The Rock Shop, 249 4th Ave., Park Slope. $10 cover.

GIG: Hi, How Are You?

Daniel Johnston ranks as one of our favorite things in all of creation, and so we are honored, excited and probably a bit nervous to be performing three songs from his Hi, How Are You album in the next installment of Boog City’s awesome Classic Albums Live series. It’s happening Wednesday July 14 at the Sidewalk Cafe. Boog City (p.s. that link is actually a download of the most recent issue) has made the unusual pairing of Hi, How Are You (to be performed by Bob Kerr, Steve Espinola, Preston Spurlock, Christy Davis and yours trulies) and Paul Simon’s Graceland (to be performed by six other acts). Unexpect the expected.

On Thursday Nov. 6 we celebrate change with lots of new songs and one old new bass player named Pam.
