Tonight in Rock: Autechre, Ani DiFranco, Mad Juana
LA Weekly's Falling James turns us on to and recommends checking out Mad Juana at the Cat Club tonight. We concur. Says James: "“Domingo,” from the New York band’s upcoming CD, Bruja on the Corner (Azra), starts with mariachi horns and segues into an Old Word vibe with accordion and violin melodies that evoke Manu Chao, Gogol Bordello and Balkan Beat Box. However, Ms. Guy’s bewitching singing takes things to a feverishly madcap place where dub, reggae, flamenco and punk collide seamlessly. It all comes together on “Revolution Avenue,” which sounds a little like Nina Hagen fronting Tijuana No! Wicked stuff." Karmen Guy is the wife of Sami Yaffa of the New York Dolls.
