Brent’s doing two live film/music shows in April:
April 11th- Indie Grits Film Festival in Columbia, SC- It’ll be Jerry Busher (Fugazi, French Toast), Alan Scalpone and Mike McGinley (both of the Bitter Tears- and Califone’s normal horn section) playing with Brent. It’s going to be a fucking party- outdoor show closing Friday night of a pretty amazing festival focused on low budget films from southern artists. And the Bitter Tears are amazing- they’ll be hauling trumpet, trombone, violin, cello and accordian to beat on alongside drums, guitar, musical saw and some lovely cartoons.
April 18th- Media Archaeology– at Orange Show for Visionary Art (rain location is Aurora Picture Show). The band here is Howe Gelb!!!!! Howe Gelb (Giant Sand, Howe Gelb), ThÃ¸ger Lund, Brent and Jeremy Gara (the Arcade Fire). The last show with Howe was unreal- he’s a real-live silent film theatre pianist shimmying ragtime mess with extra ecstatic noise and wonder- and Jeremy Gara! Damn! This one’s going to be great. Somebody likes you.
