UB Radio Salon 323; 3/23/14

I had a great time at the Chakra Chimp Research Kitchens last night with Sheila, Brian, Ninah, and Das. I felt like the improvised music we made was STONY. On mentioning that feeling to Das, he opined that,  with the bass, it was the closest to Metal that he wanted to get. Fine with me! After we were done, my teetotaling mind felt ALTERED. Yeeah! I mostly stuck to frenetic percussion on the first set; second set, I rocked my Synth Pedals. Fuuuuuuuuuun.

Failure Cock-Godwaffle Noise Pancakes, 3/22/14; Noisebridge Hacker Space SF

Scarp and I had a blast, getting our Failure Cock on in SF's Mission District today. We stuck to our rehearsed script, which included lots of loops: didgeridoo, Plug Ugly contact mic on drum, synth pedals, vocals, and bleats from some of Scarp's home made horns.
I was stoked to be reading poetry (the "vocals") that I wrote over ten years ago, after a particularly annoying interaction with someone on WAY too much coke. Take that, Ruby!
Noisebridge is a fucking RAD space. We were happy to participate. Thanks, Grux!

Ruminations-Totally Intense Fractal Mindgaze Hut; Oakland, CA 3/14/14

I have to say that the phrase "Instrumental Orgone", from the mural that decorates a main wall with the Totally Intense Fractal Mindgaze Hut, sums up how I feel about the music that Ruminations created there, last night.
Much like our first gig, earlier this year, we stuck to the adage of "let's not be afraid to stop a jam", and, in doing so, played about six separate pieces. Much fire ensued, along with some cooler moments. I really enjoyed the addition of a bass drum to the Cloud Kit: it makes the whole thing meatier. At the end of our set, I was coated with a nice, healing layer of sweat. Such a pleasure to play with some great improvising musicians, as Rent, Christina, Markus, and Bob are.
Additionally, major props to Jordan Glenn and Jason Hoopes, whose duo played some stunningly gorgeous sounds.

OK, now to prepare for the reemergence of Failure Cock next weekend!

Crow Crash Radio live at the Convent, SF, CA; 3/7/14

Crow Crash Radio were stoked to see that spaces such as the groovy Convent are still able to function in San Francisco! The place functioned for decades as the living space for nuns, right next to a Cathedral on Fell St. Currently, it is filled with extremely creative young people: the walls were covered with great paintings, poetry, etc. Inspiring!
Crow Crash Radio played for about forty minutes, and I felt like our set went pretty well. Due to the excellent acoustics of the room, I felt it was very important to play with sensitivity. It seemed as if there were more than a few points where we achieved near silence, dramatic pauses that I love so much.
At the end of the set, I did an impromptu a capella version of We Bid You Goodnight. It seemed like a song that mentioned Jesus was appropriate for a gig in a convent.
