February 2015: The Return of Eugene Chadbourne & New Directions in Appalachian Music

 

The good Dr. Chadbourne returns with a band of kranks & kooks to finish what we started last summer. Every Monday in February New Directions in Appalachian Music returns to Neptunes Parlour. In change from last summer, the show starts at 9pm and there will be one 90 minute set.  According to the Doc “this is to try to make sense of the audience attendance patterns we experienced in the past and of course eliminates the hassle of fetching musicians from the bar at breaktime.

You can check out videos from last summer’s residency here. Click on the photo above or here to read IndyWeek’s article on the Doc from last summer.

January 13: Polyorchard opens for Ken Vandermark and Nate Wooley

Polyorchard will be opening for Ken Vandermark and Nate Wooley at Neptunes Parlour on Tuesday January 13. Polyorchard will be Jeb Bishop, Chris Eubank, Dan Ruccia, and me.

9pm show, suggested donation of $8-12. Read more here.

 

IndyWeek preview:

Nate Wooley and Ken Vandermark, both giants of current American free jazz and experimental scenes, convened as a duo in the summer of 2013. The pair issued the resulting live recordings last month as East by Northwest, a nine-track set that finds Vandermark’s saxophones and clarinet and Wooley’s trumpet to be wonderfully expressive partners. They both have the ability to be plaintive and brooding or spastic and restless, qualities that make their navigations of even very familiar pieces feel invigorated. A weekend dance club, Neptune’s is becoming one of the Triangle’s better weeknight listening rooms thanks to engagements just like this. —Grayson Haver Currin

January 12: EMSG & Polyorchard

Monday January 12 marks the beginning of a new group “for the exploration and performance of experimental music in Chapel Hill and Durham.” The Experimental Music Study Group meets at 7:30 at the Nightlight in Chapel Hill for a discussion followed by a performance of this month’s scores at 9pm after which Polyorchard will perform. This line up of Polyorchard will be Jeb Bishop, Jil Christiansen, Laurent Estoppey, and me.

Merely Chadmas

merely-chadmas-2014

From the Doctor:

Saturday, December 27th

Mack and Mack’s
Downtown Greensboro, North Carolina

Eugene, Molly and Lizzie Chadbourne star in the first annual MERELY CHADMAS, which we guarantee has absolutely nothing do with Christmas but plenty to do with Doc Chad’s ever evolving musical relationship with his daughters.

The evening will be an overview of their past hits i.e. The Early Years but will also include highlights of Eugene and Molly’s recent appearances together onstage in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Guern and a selection of surprising cover
versions selected by Lizzie.

The evening will also celebrate the publication of Dreamory, Eugene’s autobiographical collection of dreams and diaries, finally available after decades of preparation. Copies of the book will be available for sale.

also featuring
David Doyle, Mandolin, French Horn and insanity

Jimmy Gilmore, Electric Guitar

David Menestres, Acoustic Bass
