Nice! I have to pick up some tickets for Thalia Hall. It's so great to finally have a venue on the southside of Chicago, and right next to a fantastic Mexican restaurant called Cantina Regio.

It's also probably close to a drive-by shooting. :(

Best $19 I've spent in awhile to see the Brooklyn show in 2 weeks -

tour starts in a couple days...

is ticketfly owned by facebook or something? I don't like that they keep a record of every gig I go to see, although it is a very cool list if I do say so.

From the initial press I assumed all 3 artists were playing solo, but according to the Paradise of Bachelors website, Nathan Bowles is playing with Steve Gunn for most of the gigs, which no one should complain about.

Ticketfly was bought not too long ago by Pandora. I wouldn't be surprised if sometime in the future you won't be able to buy a Ticketfly ticket without using Pandora's app or website. Oh well, at least Ticketmaster didn't gobble them up.

No, my current location (godforsaken hellhole) prevents me from doing that.

from http://chicago.suntimes.com/entertai...-touring-solo/

Ever since he was young, guitarist and singer/songwriter Steve Gunn has fostered a deep admiration for Sonic Youth and its members. For him, they stretched the rules of what a band could do, especially guitarist Lee Ranaldo.
“Sonically what he and the band were doing was just unlike anything I had ever heard,” Gunn says. “And the fact that he has such control of what he’s doing. I was particularly drawn to all the feedback stuff he was getting into and I was curious with how he was doing it.”
“[Ranaldo] was the first person that I knew of that was interested in open tunings. For me that was more for acoustic musicians but those guys were detuning their guitars and experimenting with feedback and that was something that really blew my mind as a kid.”
Now, all these years later, Gunn is going on a short solo tour around the country with Ranaldo. The two New York-based artists had met each other a few times over the years but hadn’t thought of a tour until their booking agency Ground Control suggested it. But it made perfect sense to them.
“We have similar interest in guitar nerdism and all that kind of stuff,” Gunn says. “So, we thought it would be a cool idea to pare down what we’ve been doing. We’ve both been touring a lot the last few years. We came up with the idea to do a more stripped down, solo trip.”
The tour has given Gunn the chance to pick Ranaldo’s brain about his technique, among other things.
“It’s been cool to get to know Lee a little bit and ask him questions about things,” he says. “He’s really friendly and knows a ton about all kinds of different things beyond guitars. He’ll talk about everything.”
In addition to playing their own sets, the two are planning to collaborate with each other, as well as opener Meg Baird.
“That was sort of the whole idea of the tour is that there would be a large part of the show that would be collaborative,” says Gunn. “We’re going to present songs to each other and see what we can add to them. And, try new things as well and keep it open-ended.”.....

....Now, he arrives at The Warhol Museum tonight on a solo acoustic tour, joined by Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Steve Gunn.. doing his own set.
Taking a fairly daring approach, “I’m going to be playing entirely new songs that nobody’s heard before,” Mr. Ranaldo says.
The tour advances the May release of a new album written with lyrical input from his friend Jonathan Lethem, an award-winning sci-fi and detective novelist.

A solo acoustic tour would suggest a more stripped-down album on the way, but Mr. Ranaldo says, “Not at all.”
The album, made in Spain with producer Raul Fernandez, “is super-produced,” he says. “There’s a ton of players on it: guys from my old band The Dust, Steve Shelley [from Sonic Youth], Alan Licht, Nels Cline. Sharon Van Etten sings on like six songs; Kid Millions from Oneida plays on a few songs.

There’s also a lot of samples and electronic drums, things like that. And horns in a couple places and strings — it’s a very layered production, so I’m presenting the most stripped-down opposite of it at the moment.”...

I saw Lee and Steve Gunn at the Warhol in Pittsburgh on Thursday. Great plugged-in-acoustic performances by both but there was a bit of a grim mood due to it being the final night of Obama's presidency, which both performers mentioned. Before one song, Lee said something along the lines of 'what the fuck is going to happen now? And the most fucked up thing is that the people who voted for Trump are the ones who are going to end up hurting the most.'

Lee did "Ambulancer" and "Hammer Blows" - otherwise it was all new stuff that will be on Electric Trim, which he said should be out in May. Lee was pretty feisty and angry, a lot of growling and shouting in the new songs which was cool to see. For the last song, Steve Gunn and Meg Baird joined him on stage for a cover of "Revolution Blues."

Anybody make it to the DC show? I couldn't make it and I've been regretting it.
