Sir Richard Bishop @ MHOW 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
No Wave icon James Chance will be sitting behind the piano at Greenpoint/Williamsburg bar Manhattan Inn (a hangout recently described as "Pitchfork come to life") on Sunday, June 27th, from 8-11pm. He'll be playing "original piano compositions...for the first time ever solo on a grand piano" though that could hew closer to jazz standard than free jazz punk. Entry is free; you'll probably have to get there early to get a table (and order a few drinks).
Sort of in the same vein, worldly guitarist Sir Richard Bishop will be playing every Monday night in July (5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th) at Zebulon. Bishop brought his Freak Of Araby Ensemble to Music Hall of Williamsburg and Studio at Webster Hall on their tour last summer.
