Just the Facts: Soundbites Addendum

Posted By on Wed, Apr 22, 2009 at 2:14 PM

Man, it's a busy week 'round our cozy little music scene. And with my extended riff on soon to be dearly departed Tick Tick booking in today's column, there were a number of things I didn't have room to print. Such is life in 1200 words or less, I suppose. Anyway, here is the stuff I was forced to hold, nuts and bolts style.

Local alt-country supergroup The Lonestar Chain have a show this Friday at Muddy Waters. This is notable for a few reasons. One, it's at Muddy Waters, which is criminally underutilized as a performance space. Two, The Lonestar Chain rock. And three, this will be the band's second performance with pedal steel player Matt Hayes (ex-Chuch).

Thursday night goes to the dogs with a benefit show for Northern New England Dog Rescue at Club Metronome. The lineup features a trio of UVM bands: The Fred, Electric Mandala and Flavor Trio. And local reggae stalwarts Pulse Prophets close out the night.

Speaking of benefits, Olive Ridley's in Plattsburgh is hosting a Sunday matinee fundraiser for Rock Against Rape with Flip the Bus, Elephantbear, Lucid, The Natalie Ward Band and Shameless Strangers.

Greg Davis is at it again. This time around he's presenting a multimedia electronic ambient show at Firehouse Gallery on Thursday night. Slated to appear are Somerville-based sonic soothsayer Brendan Murray and NYC's Corridors, whom Davis describes thusly: Byron Westbrook (b. 1977) is an artist working with the dynamic quality of physical space using multi-channel sound and images. His audio/video performances under the name CORRIDORS involve the distribution of processed instrumental and environmental recordings through a multi-channel environment with a focus on energy distilled from sound and light. Giggity.

Guitarist John Kasiewicz has a couple of show this week (Friday at Black Door, Saturday at the Bean) with Giovanni Revetto and Gabe Jarrett. That's one serious jazz trio. He's also just released, count 'em, four "debut" albums with his new ambient duo, 5turns25. A couple of questions, though: can you really release four debuts? Aren't you really only allowed one? Isn't that why it's a debut? Anyway, you can download 'em all right here.

And last but not least, erstwhile disc jockey, and all-around nice fella, Mike Luoma is keeping busy, even though he's yet to find a new radio gig. He has a comic-related online column at CosmicBookNews.com and is releasing new epicodes of his own epic comic series Pantea Obscura every Wednesday and Saturday at DrunkDuck.com.

And that's all the news that's fit — or, I guess wouldn't fit — to print.
