last minute warning: 3 = 4!



thursday october 14th (tonight)
Arthouse Cinema and critic theatre Lantaren/Venster organised a double
concert for us humble Rotterdammers on location in:

1. Paradijskerk (near Rotown)
2. Nighttown Theatre
reservations go thru the Theater Lantaren/Venster box office
Costs: 9,95 or 7,95 euros (I guess depends on you having an L/V pass
or not) which might seem a lot of money, but in fact is certainly not
expensive at all.)

in Church:
Frederic Rzewski (U.S.A.)
playing recent parts from “The Road” (solo piano piece)
Paradijskerk, Nieuwe Binnenweg 25, Rotterdam
Starts at: 8.30

in Club:
Chicago Underground Trio (U.S.A.)
Tortoise members do what they do best, namely play electronic jazz
Nighttown Theatre, Westkruiskade 28, Rotterdam
Starts at: 10.00

MIND YOU, the Chicago Underground Trio are are really more of a
quartet type band now, they just didn’t feel like changing their name,
I guess. They also have nothing to do with Lester Bowie’s Chicago Art
Ensemble, apart from the fact that they’re all hailing from Chicago.

Rob Mazurek (cornet, electronics), Chad Taylor (drums, vibes, percussion),
Noel Kupfersmith (bass, electronics), Jeff Parker (guitar).

I’m there, dude!


Meanwhile in the U.S.

For those of you who watched the ‘debate’ last night (like myself, yaaawn),
Hang in there brothers and sisters! I feel somehow we just might be saved
from the war maker after all… I didn’t really have high hopes for senator
Kerry, but I guess it was real obvious to see (even for Americans) which is
the horse to put your money on these days. I agree, there isn’t much to
choose. ‘you want the puppet on the left, or the puppet on the right’ (what
quote is that again?). On the other hand, I say ‘things are fucked up now,
time for some change!’.

If you’re an American citizen living in Florida, our friend Eelko Ferwerda
found you all a nice instruction video to help you get in the mood. Even
if you’re not from around there, click here, it’s quite funny!

    Just called Nighttown office, though says the trio will start at 8, the guy just tells me it’s 9 now, so not 10 (22:00 hrs.)

    The other concert, at the ParadijsKerk is at
    Nieuwe Binnenweg 25
    The church next to Rotown, not the one near Boijmans!

    To much television makes you mix up the few churches we have in Rotterdam Ruftus.K …nja.

    Maf. Ik bel net het Venster op om te vragen hoelaat, en zij zeggen 22.00 uur in Nighttown.
    Volksverlakkerij dus.

    Wie moet ik in godsnaam geloven?

    Bedoelde je Orthrelm gisteren, .K?
    Dat is wel een toffe band, ook ooit gezien met the Locust, Pretty Girls Make Graves en The Blood Brothers. Wel een goeie line-up als ik het zo nalees.

    the quote yer thinking of is from bill hicks

    liked Frederic Rzewski more than the chicago underground trio though as a drum/bass duo they’d be pretty interesting :)

    and while we’re thinking about drum and bass duos… u missed lightning bolt in nighttown so do yourselves a favour and go see ‘em at occii tomorrow (sat)
