Jonah Matranga

Jonah Matranga (Onelinedrawing) played his second show in two days in BOTH event spaces at the eclectic Gershwin Hotel on Tuesday, November 11th. Joined by his old friend and past congtributor Ian Love (Rival Schools/Cardia), a drum machine, and an acoustic guitar, Jonah ran through solo material, covers, and songs from his-old-but-currently-reunited band Far. He also paused for a moment to reflect on the recent events with Deftones bassist Chi Cheng. Along the way Ian Love added some amazing effects-heavy guitar, reminiscient of recent Stars Of The Lid... adding tremendous depth and emotional (I did NOT say emo) power to his set. Partial setlist, beaucoup photos, and video of Jonah performing the Deftones' "Be Quiet And Drive", below...

I'm tired. I need to get home, play a little Gyromite, work on that model submarine. I get lonely some afternoons. There's this one pigeon that's been coming to my window. I wonder if he is there right now, maybe he would like me to get home soon

I'm pretty sure he played:

A Ghost
Lukewarm
Lost, then found

It's always hard to remember a Jonah show!

Man, I had hoped this man had disappeared. Seems like he was on every touring bill at the beginning of the decade. He always put on such a horrible show with such horrible songs.

I think Jonah shows are some of the most interesting, intimate, fun, and good music shows around.

Isn't it amazing how some people love something and others hate it! Music is weird.
