Math Rock and Experimental Bands at WestCo

Come see some bi-coastal Math Rock and Experimental action go down this Friday at the WestCo Cafe. The line up includes:

Little Women (Brooklyn, NY)
(myspace.com/littlewomensounds)

“[Little Women] are too tight to be called free and too post-punk (no wave?) to be called jazz/rock either. They are most exciting and even throttling at times. Some of the most potent and powerful sh*t I’ve heard in a long while!” – Bruce Lee Gallanter (Downtown Music Gallery)

YUKON (Baltimore, MD)
(myspace.com/yukon)

“With a sensibility made of equal parts jazz, hardcore, and math rock, Yukon’s twining melodies and rhythms take risks in reinventing the ways a rock song can be strung together.” – Baltimore City Paper

PRAYER BUDDIES
(Dana Matthiessen ’09 + Prayer Buddy)

GEORGE PRITZKER ( San Diego, ’10)
(myspace.com/georgepritzkermusic)
GP + Computer

Date: Friday, November 14
Time: 10:30pm
Place: WestCo Cafe

    1:49 and 4:36 herealso, just because there’s been conflict about what exactly jazz is (and it’s still far from concrete) doesn’t give every musician a license to label their own songs as jazz. i listened to the songs because i’m a fan of jazz and i honestly didn’t hear anything that even closely resembled anything i’ve heard that has been called jazz. yes, the definition of the genre constantly changes (which is why some of the “weirder” stuff is considered by many to be jazz), but that doesn’t mean that EVERYTHING is jazz.i’m sorry you can’t handle someone having an opinion different from your own. maybe you should move out of America since i’m free to discuss my views here. i’d hate to see you put in jail just because you feel the need to suppress my opinion.

    @10:38yes, i do study jazz and play music.i sure hope you don’t treat everyone who has a viewpoint that you happen to disagree with the same way you said you want to treat me. you want to commit a serious act of violence on me because i anonymously attacked someone’s definition of a music form. i’d hate to see how you’d act if someone expressed allegiance to political views that you disagree with. maybe you should calm down a little bit if you care enough about one insignificant person’s opinion on music to want to hurt someone?

    @ 4:36 PM wow.what exactly is your definition of jazz? Have you ever actually studied jazz and the clusterfuck that has continually surrounded its definition? You honestly sound like the most ridiculously conceited person in both chastising “parasitic hipsters” while also obviously being one in your shameless ownership of the meaning of the word ‘jazz’. Reading this makes me imagine punching you in your smug fucking face over and over until you realize that YOU are the other you claim to hate so much. Seriously, either go MAKE some music or go DIE in a fucking cave you twee fuck.

    @2:28: because they want to be obscure, ironic, and irreverent.it’s the same reason that they (or their parasitic hipster fans) pepper their descriptions of the bands with completely out of place genre comparisons. these bands are not even close to jazz (unless having some of the same instrumentation counts as being similar, in which case some lil wayne songs are jazz)
