Post-Gig Roundup

So the Rzewski shindig went like gangbusters last night out in Inman Square. We had some technical difficulties with the bass amp cord on Coming Together, which caused a little confusion. Our response? Go back to the head and slam through the piece properly. This band can play.

Attica went alright...I think it's a better piece when we get to hear more variety in the instrumentation/orchestration. People seemed to be more interested in playing more continually.

Les Moutons went great...In fact, Rzewski got up from the audience and joined us at the piano mid-performance. Awesome. We even did a little improv at the end, per the piece's original instructions.

Of course, we had wings at the S&S afterwards. Yum...Gotta hit 'em if you haven't.

Sooner or later I'll drop my review of the Eighth Blackbird concert. I'm still trying to formulate a coherent response.

Yes, you are right. I gave them more credit than they deserve. One day they'll graduate to caps. Probably when they stop wandering around stage. Or when they start playing good music.
