source:mirthkon.comI just got done playing miRthkon on the air — which, combined with this writing, makes me a liveblogger, I suppose. Taste the excitement.

They’re a local band that augments two-guitar prog rock with a saxophone and bass clarinet, and they make good use of all the pieces available to them. The horns bring in some credible free-jazz jamming and soloing, while the guitars shred forth with odd time signature melodies.

I played “Zhagunk” from an EP, The Illusion of Joy, that came out in 2006; they’re finally releasing a full-length CD and doing a show at the Starry Plough tomorrow night, May 30, to celebrate. I can’t make it to that show, but considering how I’ve been blown away by them two times previous, I’m thinking it’s going to be great.
