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 Rollinsupcoming shows at Joe’s Pub go on sale Friday at noon.

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