Great to see Kid Millions and Oneida on Friday night. I caught only part of their set last month at the Bowery Ballroom when they opened one of Yo La Tengo’s 8 nights of Hanukkah (and far from the stage). So I was super glad to catch them up close tonight (and with James McNew πŸ™ of YLT on bass, to boot!). The intensity they bring together as a unit is unreal! β€˜Twas a wonderfully noisy meditation. Thanks to their label, Joyful Noise Recordings, and Kid for the hookup! ✌️

After shooting pictures of Dean Wareham last month at LPR, I was able to follow up with a few questions regarding his latest project, Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre. 🐴 Oh, and what his favorite sandwich is. πŸ₯ͺ You can read the interview on WeAllWantSomeone.org here: bit.ly/2RK6Kou. (πŸ“· for @weallwantsomeone)

I really enjoyed London-based saxophonist Nubya Garcia’s set opening for Gary Bartz on Thursday night at LPR. Will have to catch her the next time she’s in town, hopefully headlining. 🎷

Gary Bartz celebrated the 50th anniversary of his album, Another Earth, with a performance on Thursday night that included Pharoah Sanders and Charles Tolliver, who appeared on the original recording. It was thrilling to hear these giants play together! 🎷
