Ladyscissors

Sat February 23, 2019 @ 9:45 pm

w/ Jimmy Sugarcane People and Dr. Pete Larson

Ladyscissors (Madison) Rock four-piece does jangly, slinky rock that
ranges from REM-like pop to moody, hypnotic rockabilly, a la, early
Velvet Underground. Female harmonies float over crunchy guitars (Brent
George and Lorrie Hurckes-Dwyer) with a bubbling bass (Anne Bull) line
just bubbling away. Sometimes the drummer, Stephanie Rearick (Negative
Example, The Coma Savants, etc) plays trumpet.

“The [quartet] blends those late-Fifties-style vocal elements and
early-Sixties instrumental references, protecting the ethos of the
not-too-studied brand of rock musician that delivers it straight from
the gut while spiking the punch with a dose of punk raunchiness.  As the
name might suggest, Ladyscissors keeps the music fun and the production
decidedly real.” – Local Sounds Magazine –

Jimmy Sugarcane is a Nigerian artist who infuses his energetic
dancehall with Afrobeats, hip-hop and roots reggae.  After several years
performing in the Chicago area he now calls Madison home and is joined
on drums here by local musician Luke Bassuener (Asumaya, Disaster Passport).

Dr. Pete Larson is a performer from Ann Arbor, Michigan who has
honed his multi-instrumental skills in areas as far reaching as
Mississippi, Japan and most recently Kenya. He performs a challenging
mix of traditional and new on a variety of instruments, but most
recently the nyatiti, an eight stringed lyre from the nile regions of
East Africa. He combines African dance beats and rhythms with modern
American avant and electronic influences to create a captivating ambient
aural experience. Dr. Larson also runs Dagoretti Records, a label
specializing in innovative global musics.
