Post-Fourth Fireworks

Blasted the hell out of Nels Cline’s Initiate on our nation’s birthday. Many moments resounded with the kind of eloquent manslaughter that the guitarist has been cranking out for decades. The Wilco color man always has the right kind of calibration when it comes to tearing shit up – seldom is it done without a nod to the active dynamics at hand. Anyway, his trio, the Nels Cline Singers, is set to rumble at (le) poisson rouge tomorrow night. Put a sparkler in your hand and pretend the holiday ain’t over yet.
