My Brightest Diamond @ Le Poisson Rouge (Dec 2008)

16th Feb 09 (Mon) 2 comments

I’m reusing this press photo of My Brightest Diamond, because I think it’s rad…

Baeble Music recently recorded My Brightest Diamond‘s entire concert at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC last year (12.13.08).  I’ve only watched the first few songs so far, but it is fantastic.  The setlist is very similar to the Eugene show that I went to in late November 2008, with a few songs swapped around in the order.

** Watch the full concert at baeblemusic.com **** Watch the full concert at baeblemusic.com **

** Check out the blog & photos from the show as well **

I can’t get the embedding to work (WordPress.com blogs are like that sometimes on non-YouTube/Google videos); so just click the link or picture above.  Baeble Music has tons of other live shows that they filmed on their site as well.  Check ’em out: http://www.baeblemusic.com/

And as an unrelated side-note…

…the February 1 [2009] interview with John Zorn on WNYC‘s Ear to Ear with David Garland is excellent.  It’s 76 minutes of new John Zorn music and insight into the overworked, overjoyed musical genius.  It is available in its entirety for download over at WYNC’s website:

It features some recent music [fall/winter ’08] and some as of now unreleased music.  Score!

astronome: a night at the opera

18th Oct 08 (Sat) Leave a comment

John Zorn’s Moonchild Trio (Mike Patton/Trevor Dunn/Joey Baron) is due out with a fourth recorded installment (The Crucible) later in 2008/early 2009.  Their second installment, 2006’s Astronome, is getting a revised treatment for the stage.  From the Downtown Music Gallery‘s newsletter this week:

ASTRONOME: A NIGHT AT THE OPERA!

Director Richard Foreman and musician John Zorn team up for Astronome: A Night at the Opera opening next year [2009] at Ontological-Hysteric Theater.

WATCH VIDEO FEED of rehearsals and see how Foreman develops this production… EVERY WEDNESDAY from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 26, 2008-Jan. 21, 2009 live from the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in Manhattan! [No rehearsals Dec. 24, 2008]

hmm… No word in the above weblinks if the Patton/Dunn/Baron Moonchild Trio (pictured below) will be in the production.  I don’t know how it would work without them, but you never know.  I mean, it could probably only be non-rad if they got Renee Zellweger to play Mike Patton’s parts. :)  .

NYC trip in 2009 for me?  Unlikely.  But I can dream…
