The Summer of Music Rolls On
Einstürzende Neubauten
Ok, so, in addition to seeing Saul Williams the other day, I also have tickets to see Public Enemy and the Necks in early Jan. It also seems that everyone's favourite "sludge rock" band The Melvins will be at the Ding Dong lounge some time in January. And I drove past a poster today advertising Ani DiFranco at the Palias on January 30th.

It's going to be a Summer of International Music for me.

Hmmmmm... And I must have the most eclectic taste on the planet. Lets see... Saul Williams is "thinking man's Rap" for want of a better description. Public Enemy is old school rap, although not old-old school - that would be Kool Herc or Afrika Baambata. The Necks are improvisational jazz, the Melvins are, as mentioned, "Sludge Rock", whatever that means. And Ani DiFranco is a Lesbian folk musician. Top that for a bizarre mixture of musical tastes!
