Back from WOMEX, and have some very important things to share:
First, this Thursday night, as part of the Target Free Thursdays series in the David Rubenstein Atrium is the US debut of the UK’s The Fish Police http://www.thefishpolice.com, on a double bill with the Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt! http://new.lincolncenter.org/live/index.php/atrium-fish-nov-4
I saw The Fish Police about a year ago at the Decibel conference in the UK, and was totally charmed by their naively sophisticated mix of electro punk-funk…(you can see that set here: http://vimeo.com/8594848) I’ve been posting songs of theirs on Facebook for about a year, and it always gets a good response. They just finished their debut EP, and you can hear some tracks here, such as the soon to be classic “Chicken Nuggets”: (Mat and Dean: “We love chicken and we love nuggets. We sing about all the different ways to eat chicken.”) : http://www.thefishpolice.com/tracks
They will be on a shared bill with Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt! whose costume-clad electro-rock dance parties obliterate the boundaries between audience and performer (think Dan Deacon but with more light sabers, and more group hugs.) www.myspace.com/theterrorpigeondancerevolt I’m away at WOMEX every year during Halloween, and Terror Pigeon have been in Europe, too, so think of this as a belated chance to dress up for the holiday. Don’t worry about what to wear – they bring a huge bag of buried treasures to share with the crowd.

David Rubenstein Atrium | Broadway bet 62nd-63rd St
SAT 11.06.10 | 9 pm – midnight | Free
Speaking of dancing, and of WOMEX, GlobeSonic Sound System makes its first appearance since our pier parties this summer, with a free dance party at the David Rubenstein Atrium closing out the LCDJ series. It’s going to be Derek Beres and the mysterious Acidophilus djing, and Duke Mushroom on percussion, and we may have some special guest instrumentalists as well. I have lots of new goodies that I picked up at WOMEX that need to be tested out on the dance floor, so get ready for some surprises.
As some of you know, Fabian Alsultany is out in LA these days, and will actually be spinning Saturday night, too, so my LA friends should check him out at Yoga Works.

Finally, wanted to remind you about a very special show taking place next Tuesday night:
The original idea for what became the Buena Vista Social Club was supposed to be a collaboration between Malian and Cuban musicians. The Malian musicians couldn’t make it, and the resulting projects went on to become one of the most influential world music projects in history. Afrocubism goes back to the original concepts and brings together two of Mali’s most important instrumentalists, kora master Toumani Diabate and ngoni innovator Bassekou Kouyate along with Buena Vista’s Eliades Ochoa. This should be an incredible show.
