July 27: Dot Dot Dot Reunion

I guess this would be a good time to mention that Dot Dot Dot is doing a one-off, 30-year anniversary show on Friday, July 27 at Mayne Stage (1328 W. Morse Ave.) in Chicago. The show begins at 7:30. 18 and over. Also on the bill: Ono and Illusion Of Safety. This will be the first time the band has played since breaking up in early 1985. Mayne Stage is an extremely good-sounding venue. It will be worth the extra 3 to 30 to 300 to 3,000 miles you will have to travel on your bicycle to witness this performance. For those of you who don't know your CHEER-ACCIDENT history as well as you might like, Dot Dot Dot included two members who went on to form 66.6% of the Dumb Ask era: Chris Block and Thymme Jones. The lineup that will be playing on the 27th will be: Ross Feller- woodwinds Jef Bek- Drums Chris Block- bass Thymme Jones- trumpet, keyboards Bring your druthers!

    i forgot my druthers. i am not sure if this time ‘druthers’ meant something to keep from being cold, but i suppose it might as well.

    other than that – thanks for a fabulous happening.

    It was great to see a show at the south pole for the first time in my life! However, my one criticism would be that when the saxophone player switched from baritone to soprano sax mid-song, it was a bit of a jump in range for me to handle. To go from so low to so high without choosing another, say alto or tenor sax, in between seemed a bit intense for me. I like gradualness, so this kind of rocked my boat a bit, but I suppose I survived the storm. Good show nonetheless.
