Prog/RIO Shows, All in a Row
August 14, 2012 at 3:13 pm
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:
Fri. Aug. 24 — Jack o’ the Clock and Reconnaissance Fly (who have a recently minted Web site!) and Vegan Butcher at the Starry Plough, Berkeley.
Sat. Aug. 25 — “Gravity Reimagined,” performed by Fred Frith, Dominique Leone‘s band, and Aaron Novik‘s Thorny Brocky, at Slim’s, San Francisco.
Tue. Aug. 28 — miRthkon — who did complete that DVD and have spent a couple of weeks on tour to support it — at the Elbo Room, San Francisco. Kayo Dot is headlining.
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.
