Gatto Pazzo will deliver a rare (only the third) performance at the October 10th B.L.U.R.T. show at SIP in Orlando. Gonna be a great show with other artists including Kevin Greenspon (from California), Electric Inertia (from Ohio), Hardon Collider (from Ohio), Whitey Alabastard (from outer space), Quantyzer, and our ol’ pal Trotsky’s Watercooler.
Available for the first time at this B.L.U.R.T. show will be the first two releases from the extremely limited edition art/CD projects by Gatto Pazzo. These items will be hand-made, unique, beautiful, will include lots of artwork by the trio, and will not last long, as they will be produced in very small numbers.
A very exciting event on October 19th: The Delusionaires will crawl out of the basement for a one-time special show, filling the honorable slot of warm up band for the amazing Tav Falco and Panther Burns!!!!! This will be a very special evening. Hangovers predicted.
And rounding out the month will be the latest installment of the improvised music showcase at Urban ReThink on October 28th beginning at 3pm. Details are still being worked out, but, as always, these showcases are not to be missed.
A quick group of shows happening the early part of September has kept me busy with rehearsals: Crater Tater will be sharing the stage with Gargamel on Friday, September 7th, Hal McGee will host a new Apartment Music afternoon on September 15th (I will be performing a duo with cellist John David Eriksen), and Son of CHANG will make it’s second and last (?) one-time-only performance at Uncle Lou’s on Wednesday, September 19th.
I pulled out the first of the cue card pieces from 2009 which was originally performed by CHANG and have reworked it for Son of CHANG and our show at Uncle Lou’s. We will be performing two pieces: VRRROOOM! and Zip-Zip-Tang. Also on the bill that night is SSLOTS, Free Dr*gs, and more.
On track from a fall release is the new vinyl offering from The Delusionaires, Flooze Party.
Some very creative and clever ideas for limited edition artwork/CD releases from Gatto Pazzo will be emerging over the next few months. This is very exciting to me, as the releases will be available in very limited quantities and all will be hand made, one-of-a-kind packaging incorporating our artwork with unique ideas.
