David Byrne / Jherek Bischoff / Zola Jesus @ St. Ann's Warehouse - 1/8/14

Jherek Bischoff began his guest-filled two-night stand at St. Ann's Warehouse last night (1/8), and if you weren't sure what to expect, it turned out to be a pretty extravagant affair. He was joined by a number of guest vocalists, including David Byrne, Sondre Lerche, Zola Jesus (aka Nika Danilova), Mirah, in addition to unannounced (but not unexpected) singers Zac Pennington (of Parenthetical Girls) and Sam Mickens. His band, among others, also included Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, Jen Goma (of People Get Ready/A Sunny Day In Glasgow) and the Contemporaneous Ensemble, conducted by David Bloom.

The first set was songs off of Jherek's Composed album, and the second set was songs by the guest vocalists with arrangements by Jherek. One of Mirah's songs, "Gold Rush," was a new one, and one of Zola Jesus's, "Lawless," was new as well. For the encore, David Byrne came out to do Talking Heads' "And She Was," eventually joined by all the guests on stage together. Pictures of the show are in this post.

Jherek and co. do it again tonight (1/9), which is unfortunately sold out.

Greg Saunier has a rider that says he will only perform if at least one Asian woman is on stage with him

Sondre really put on his best wears for this one, eh? What's up, dude? You can even spring for a fucking sweater to put over that damn t-shirt?

because after all this was really about what everyone was wearing, the music was secondary.
