It turns out Fred Frith’s Gravity show on Aug. 25 (which I just recently mentioned) is part of a small run of Bay Area prog-rock (or Rock in Opposition) shows:
I don’t closely follow the RIO scene, but it seems like an unusually rich few days for that kind of music. Rejoice!
And finally, even though I just mentioned it… I’m doing a special about Fred Frith’s Gravity and that Slim’s show. It’ll air Monday, Aug. 20, at 7:00 p.m. Pacific on KZSU-FM, and yes you can listen via the Web.
