The Cherry-Gilchrist-Makihara lineup is probably more well known, but the touchingGrace show is out of this world beautiful! Either way, this was a great night of jazz….

The best Needle Gun performance I’ve ever seen (and believe me…I’ve seen too many). Sounding unusually tight and orchestrated, my boys pull off a grand build and let the climax explode. The crowd wants more: the band play two encores. This will never be recreated. This is lightning in a bottle. This is Needle Gun.

Psychedelic rock from Charm City…I went to a show last month at The Talking Head, but arrived late and missed their set. I’m glad I came out and caught this show.

I’m not sure what genre these guys would pigeon-hole themselves in, but they sound like a progressive rock band to me. It was definitely worth driving down to DC for this thirty minute set. While the recording came out very well, I still feel compelled to let you know that the droning that begins around 1:11 of track 5 (Training Sequence, part III) is NOT caused by me. I noticed it right away when the band was playing, the bass was just an overwhelming drone for a minute or so. Beyond that, the show is a fantastic listen.

Last night was my first, and probably my last, time at The Red & The Black. I’d heard that the area was kind of iffy, but I didn’t get a sense of that at all and I found a parking spot relatively quickly. I made it to the club about thirty seconds before The Prisoner’s Dilemma hit the stage, but, thankfully, they held off for a couple of more minutes while I set up. Where to set up was a problem, and the sole reason why I may never go back to tape at The Red & The Black again: the venue is about the size of your average kitchen. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a club that was smaller than this place. Capacity couldn’t be more than 40 people, fifty tops. I had planned on staying for all the bands, especially wanting to see Imperial China, but the tight conditions, coupled with the fact that there was nothing to protect me and my gear from getting swallowed up by the audience, I decided to hit the road after this set.

Baltimore funky jazz trio…all three members of Oxter are former members of Mofofunka, a band I used to call my absolute favorite local band (now I have many absolutes!). This was only my second time taping at Joe Squared and I’m very surprised how much I enjoy taping there.

During July 2006, I made a short documentary piece on noise music, aptly titled Noise. The film features interviews with local Baltimore noise folks such as Jason Willett, Ian Nagoski (both proprietors of Hampden’s The True Vine record store), and John Berndt, as well as Max Eilbacher, William O’Brien, Jack Patterson, and Tony Rutka. I made a small run of 25 DVD-R copies earlier this year, and now that those are gone, I’ve decided to put the whole thing up on the internet. Come on, feel the NNNNNNNNNNN_ois_EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
