The Autumn Weather Turns the Leaves to Flame

74_ArthurLee_L1104061.jpg

First draft of the September concert calendar is up in the gig guide. (See link to your left.) There's going to be a ridiculous amount going on - the X-Avant festival at the Music Gallery with among others Tony Conrad, an AIMT Interface with free-jazz sax titan Joe McPhee, live Jandek (backed by local AIMT improvimentalists Nick Fraser, Nilan Perrera and Rob Clutton, by the way), Mountain Goats, Richard Buckner, and the overnight Nuit Blanches art festival at the end of the month, for starters. As always, your corrections, additions, comments and questions are invited.

RIP to Love's Arthur Lee. He was 61. Like the late Syd Barrett, his productive time was all too brief, although Lee never disappeared from the scene quite so completely, but his music remains remarkably fullblooded and fresh.

And to annoy the Final Fantasy averse - The Anchor Centre has put up the best live video of Owen I've ever seen, which should really convey the alchemy of his performances for those who've not been able to see a show.
