Floored by Four @ Summerstage (more by Paul Bachmann)

Floord by Floor

The December 6th show at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC:


  • is a 50th birthday party for Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda who used to be married to Dougie Bowne who she has a long history of playing music with, used to date Sean Lennon who she frequently collaborates with, and who is now engaged or married to guitar wizard Nels Cline of Wilco (Wikipedia says their wedding was scheduled for late November in Japan, so if that's true, congratulations to them!)
  • will feature a live performance by Floored by Four aka Mike Watt, Dougie Bowne, Yuka C. Honda, and Nels Cline. It will be their 2nd live show ever which means their first must have been that Summerstage show with M Ward
  • will feature a Nels Cline solo set "+ friendly jamming after 10:30pm"
  • will include a set titled "Yuka & Miho cover Cibo Matto" which I assume means a Cibo Matto show, but without any of Yuka and Cibo's other band members?
Whatever it is, the show is sure to be a good one. Tickets are still on sale.

Nels Cline will also be back at the same NYC venue on February 26th for "The Nels Cline Singers and ROVA perform 'The Celestial Septet'". Tickets are on sale for that too. All Nels dates below.

Will Nels Cline, Mike Watt, Yuka Honda, and/or Dougie Bowne play with Yo La Tengo at Maxwell's this week? I don't know, but it would be pretty cool.

Will Nels Cline's Wilco bandmate Jeff Tweedy play with Yo La Tengo at Maxwell's this week? Very likely.

Will Sean Lennon show up and play at all at LPR on 12/6? Maybe? Will Yuka Honda play with Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl aka The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger at Rockwood Music Hall on January 8th? Maybe?

Can Yuka Honda, Dougie Bowne, Sean Lennon, and Nels Cline all be in the same room and everything be completely normal? Apparently?

Oh, and speaking of turning 50, don't forget tickets to Henry Rollins' upcoming shows at Joe's Pub go on sale Friday at noon.

Enjoy some birthday cake, with all Nels Cline tour dates, below...

Who?

Bored by four. Try tortured by four. You can get all avant whatever with your experiementation, but it's nice when there's at least something discernably pleasant to the ear.

Sean Lennon has Mommy issues

To the above commentors....hey b!tchez, go listen to Freelance Whales or Dan Deacon. I'd easily pay $5 to see Nels smack his guitar off your faces.

Stop the negative comments for f--ks sake!

FACTS:

1) Nels Cline Rules!

2) Mike Watt Rules!

3) Cibo Matto would be really fun to see!

4) Everyone attending this awesome birthday throwdown will be having a great time while you are lonely at home being a miserable f--king loser!

hoooly shiit cibo matto show.

>>will include a set titled "Yuka & Miho cover Cibo Matto" which I assume means a Cibo Matto show, but without any of Yuka and Cibo's other band members?<<<

The original Cibo Matto was only Yuka and Miho, so if the two are together it's Cibo Matto.
I saw them in Central Park around 1997 or 1998 opening up for John Zorn and Yoko Ono, and it was just the two of them.
Also, I'm pretty sure Viva La Woman doesn't have anyone else on it, just the two of them.

Whether Sean Lennon will show up or not I don't know, but I do know that when The Nels Cline Singers played at Le Poisson Rouge not so long ago, both Yuka and Sean were special guests for a couple of tunes.

Before someone corrects me regarding my 10:00 PM comment.
It might not have been the Singers, I've seen Cline a couple of other times in the past year.
It was at one of those shows, if not the Singers show.
