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), Thøger 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.
