IEB November 2013 shows

Friday November 8, ~ 9pm
@ Starry Plough, Berkeley
IEB, Jack O’ The Clock, Chuck Johnson

Jack O’ The Clock rule. The last time I saw them they seriously owned the music and it blew me away, expect the same!… Chuck Johnson’s albums play well on loop, it’s that listenable, and it’s not easy listening, but not difficult either. Chuck plays in the solo acoustic guitar tradition which has been dubbed American primitive guitar music. It’s great recorded or live. I’ve actually played his album on loop for several hours and it can really transport you somewhere.


Wednesday, November 13 ~8:30 pm
@ Hotel Utah, San Francisco
One Ton Music
Cash Pony, Grex, IEB, and Mark Clifford Quartet

One Ton Music ::
-To paraphrase the great Rahsaan Roland Kirk, it don’t get no lighter–an evening of music both sonically and emotionally heavy, ranging from intense, apocalyptic psych rock (Cash Pony) to the noisy, free jazzy nether regions of chamber pop (Grex), careening through the valleys of inimitable Bay Area prog (Inner Ear Brigade) and casting a knowing glance at some extraordinary modern jazz composition (Mark Clifford Quartet). So to reiterate, heavy.
