Greg Ginn at Cabooze Thursday
The great Black Flag guitarist brings his Texas Krautrock and ambient Western blues projects to the Cabooze Thursday (show details) for an 18+ gig with the Bill Mike band opening. Both Greg Ginn & the Taylor Texas Currogators and Jambang have recent albums on SST that are pretty damn cool, soundscapey but never aimless, and always beat-driven--here's a live review in the Houston Press. I missed seeing this show coming or I would have pitched a profile somewhere, but Ginn might be a slightly rarified taste until he starts writing songs with lyrics again.
By coincidence, Quincy Punx did a set of Black Flag covers this weekend at First Avenue, which I missed because I was in Madison, where Ginn was playing the same night, though I doubt he performed a single Black Flag song. Still, I might bring an album down for him to sign.
