    OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS 3/2/07 link

    TOUR:
    Cenozoic Fossils Hall - Dr. John Harris, Head of Vertebrate Studies at NHM

    DISCUSSION:
    Geerat J. Vermeij, Prof. of Marine Ecology and Paleoecology at UC Davis
    Margaret Wertheim, host and series curator
    Hope Schneider, moderator

    MUSIC:
    GHOSTLAND OBSERVATORY
    MATMOS and MARSHALL ALLEN (of the Sun Ra Arkestra)
    with special guest Walter Kitundu
    DJ sets by Allen (dublab/Plug Research)

    PLUS live screen printing by Hit+Run

    Both biological and cultural life are dynamic systems that give rise to great bursts of innovation. Tonight's First Friday explores how innovation and competition for resources can shape new ecologies in both realms. Join us for an evening of discussion, music, and video inspired by this theme. READ MORE

    5:30pm - 6:00pm, TOUR:
    Step back in time with Dr. John Harris, chief curator of the Page Museum at the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits and head of Vertebrate Studies at the Natural History Museum, as he excavates signs of innovation and evolution in the hall of Cenozoic Fossils.

    6:30pm - 7:30pm, DISCUSSION:
    Imagine eavesdropping on a conversation between Charles Darwin and Steve Jobs. They might find fascinating similarities between biological evolution and the innovations of society, commerce and culture. Join Professor of Marine Ecology and Paleoecology at UC Davis Geerat J. Vermeij, science writer Margaret Wertheim, and strategic planner Hope Schneider for a discussion exploring the connections between the systems that underlie the amazing biodiversity in natural organisms and the possible parallels in our own cultural realm. Afterwards, watch the premier of the Natural History Museum's original film exploring evolution as innovation.

    8:00pm - 10:00pm, MUSIC:
    2 generations of audio innovators converge as electronic magicians Matmos are joined by tone scientist Marshall Allen for an onstage sonic spectacular. Amplified crayfish nerve tissue, the pages of bibles turning, a bowed five string banjo, and water hitting copper plates are just a few patches in the quilt of sound created by Matmos, who will be joined by Marshall Allen, current leader of the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra with whom he has spent over 40 years. He is considered one of the most revered saxophonists of our time. Come enjoy the aural alchemy of this most logical union of sounds.

    Finally, end the evening with a new generation of innovators culminating past influence and present inspiration. Austin, Texas duo Ghostland Observatory is not so much a band as a revelation. Frontman Aaron Behrens' performance style is the love child of Freddie Mercury and Elvis Presley. Producer/drummer Thomas Turner's keyboard lacerations and beats are known to inspire gleeful dancing. Buckle up.

    Throughout the night DJ Allen Avanessian of Dublab (who provide infinite streams of commercial free music) and LA's progressive Plug Research record label, will be spinning the wide sonic spectrum that inspires his search for new genres and hybrids that keep music moving forward.

    PLUS live screen printing by Hit+Run: choose your own combination and placement of designs inspired by First Fridays to create a one-of-a-kind T-shirt!

    The Smell sounds awesome; a good place to see Lightening Bolt.

    I don't think I'm gonna go to that Lucinda Williams show; tickets are supposed to be $33-$40 and that's before fees. If I wanted to spend that much I'd rather figure out a way to go to Stagecoach for Saturday where there aren't assigned seats. But, most likely, I'll do neither.

    Also since I didn't go to Oh No! Oh My! on Tuesday and Jesu aren't playing tonight and I'm not gonna see Isis for themselves I may end up at Midlake next Wednesday. We'll see.

    Those are just the ones I know about that I'm thinkin about goin to. Yes, I know there's more and a better selection in LA but we do alright here.

    I'd say I wish people knew that but then shows'd sellout here too. Then again enough of that and we'd be able to support more venues and we'd get more tour stops and suchlike.

    Phoenix does get it's share. That's cool to see. I have to kind of mix and match between Baltimore and Philly to get the good shows. D.C. usually has better shows than both of them, but that's a bitch of a drive, especially on weeknights.

    My next shows (which I've probably mentioned before) are: The Hold Steady in Baltimore on March 6th and The Broken West/The Walkmen in Baltimore on March 9th. Rodrigo y Gabriela are playing Philly in April, and The Arcade Fire are playing Philly in May. Will make both of those (work permitting).

    Finally! I've been wanting to see Matmos for years, but they're always conflicting with other things when they've been around. I'll be there, and I'll enjoy the museum as well. I wish I would have gone to the exhibit that Autolux played at last year.

    My upcomers:
    Matmos-3/2-Natural History Museum
    Menomena-3/9-The Echo
    Sebadoh-3/10-Spaceland
    Fujiya and Miyagi-3/14-Spaceland
    OOIOO-3/27-Echo
    TV on the Radio-3/30-Henry Fonda
    TV on the Radio-3/31-Henry Fonda
    Dean and Britta-4/6-Getty
    Lightning Bolt-4/11-???
    Lightning Bolt-4/12-??? (They don't list the smell any longer)
    Deerhunter, The Ponys-4/14-The Echo
    Coachella-4/27-4/29

    The Shins are coming back to Phoenix on April 11 for their first show in 5 years. Celebrity Theatre. GA but seated. Tickets should come to about $30 after fees. And they go on sale on Saturday. Hmm.

    Henri I wanna hear about Midlake.

    I'm disappointed you didn't go see Midlake, John. i have to live vicariously through you guys for the bands that don't come to St. Louis.

    I wish Snow Patrol would come here. I hear their goddamn songs everywhere I go, but they don't have a Phoenix area date. I heard "Chasing Cars" in IHOP the other day for pete's sake. They usually play the best of the 70's music in there.

    For those of you going tot eh Ted Leo show in San Francisco this weekend, one of the bands on the bill, So Many Dynamos, is from St. Louis. So you know. They are pretty good, but if you don't like keyboard heavy, jerky, jagged, dance punk that all the kids were playing two years ago, you might not like them. they're good people. they play like 200 shows a year.

    And of course Earl fucking Greyhound play the Troub a weekend I'll be home. And Redd Kross are playing the Fonda over Spring Break. And Albert Hammond Jr. is playing the El Rey during Spring Break. If I leave town, I miss all sorts of good shows.

    I'm considering that Clipse show. It seems like it'd be fun to watch all the hipsters try to act gangsta.

    I forgot that we post pictures of shows we've seen in here, not in random pics. So, see the random pics thread for my Ben Kweller pics over there.

    review: He was great. He was short, too. When he sat down at the piano, you couldn't even see the top of his head (the stage is only about three feet high). I was really surprised by how funny he was in his stage banter. I won't try to re-create it. They played everything you'd want to hear, including some more rarely-played song, like "Down".

    Could be. But though I go to a good number of shows downtown and whereever and all I don't know how many people I would say I know. I'm not real good at randomly introducing myself to people. It might could be more like we'd recognize each other and say oh I've seen that guy before.
