1/21/2012 -That band of mystic heathens known as Jeffertitti’s Nile return to Seattle. Their future primitive space garage vibes  were one of the highlights of Escalator Fest 2010 so we look forward to seeing them again but this bill also boasts three of the hands down best local acts going right now- Diminished Men, Rose Windows and the Low Hums. With DJ Mamma Casserole.  See you there…

Soakin' up the vibes...

This Blinding Light played a memorably transcendent improv heavy set.


Simon Henneman – Black Magic and Moustache

2011.04.09

Thanks to everyone who came out to an awesome show last night at the Funhouse!

If you’re like us and can’t get enough of the smoky, mysterious soundtracks of Diminished Men, you might want to check out the release party tonight for Simon Henneman’s solo record Black Magic and Moustache, available now via Hisham Mayet’s Assophon imprint.  Originally released as a limited-run CD in 2006, Black Magic and Moustache is a glimpse into the jazz-infused compositional prowess of Diminished Men bassist and multi-instrumentalist Simon Henneman.  Dave Segal just gave the record a glowing review in The Stranger.

The LP release party features performances by Wah Wah Exit Wound, Bad Luck, Contraband Country Band and Simon’s duo with drummer Gregg Keplinger (plus a special appearance by Simon’s son Satchel Henneman.)  All of the bands will be playing two “cover songs” from Simon’s record in addition to their own sets. At the Josephine, 608 NW 65th.  Facebook event here.
