Good day from the Hideout,
Come fight off this last bitter chill at tonight’s Soup and Bread. The theme for tonight is Tokyo vs. Paris.
Following that, the Immediate Sound Series presents Fred Lonberg-Holm’s Lightbox Orchestra
Friday we start off the night with the melodic songwriting of Bill MacKay.
Later in the evening we celebrate the Al Scorch and the Country Soul Ensemble‘s new full length “Tired Ghostly Town” along with performances by The Grisly Hand and Kathy Greenholdt who is celebrating the release of her new album “When You’re Dead”.
Saturday starts at 3:00 with The Adventure Sandwich Kickstarty Party. It should be a ridiculous good time with exclusive sneak peeks of Adventure Sandwich footage, delicious sandwiches, and delectable imbibe-ables. Free entry. Donations (and all-around celebration) encouraged. Bring the Kids! And the Grown Ups! Eat! Drink! Dance! Donate!
Also on Saturday, for our evening show we are thrilled to have The Chandeliers. Putting a danceable twist on art rock, Krautrock, and avant-garde influences, Chandeliers’ kaleidoscopic electronic jams are artful yet accessible. Opening up we have hazy art-rock sound of SHAPERS and some suggestive funk by Deep Sleep.
Sunday and Monday we take take a brief hibernation and are closed.
Tuesday is the last week of Bobby Conn and Monica Boubou’s month long residency. This time around the theme is: epics. It will feature John Ridenour (guitar), Josh Johannpeter (drums), Nick Macri (bass), Abraham Levitan (keyboards), Thymme Jones (horns), Allison Trumbo (strings and recorder), plus more TBA.
Bobby says, “Last year my old friend John Ridenour made an amazing record called “The Guilt & The Ambiguity” that I was lucky enough to help with. Since he lives in Urbana and raises chickens and children in his backyard I figured the only way anyone here would hear his great tunes live would be if I put a band together for him. Many of the band played on the record, and we’ll do a few cuts, plus some epic arrangements off of 2001’s “The Golden Age” and some groovy French orchestral pop by Michel Columbier. And much more. This is the big finale folks, don’t miss it!”’
See you soon,
