Readers may recall that underground legend S. Clay Wilson suffered a severe brain injury back in November. Although he’s making progress towards a recovery, he needs much therapy — expensive therapy. Tomorrow, Sunday, a benefit for Wilson will be held at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco with a raucous assemblage that Wilson would be proud of. Details below:
Sunday 11 January 2009 at 6:00pm
1131 Polk Street
San Francisco CA 94109
Anvil Encephalopathy, Liz Albee and Agnes Azelag, Skullcaster, Loachfillet, Heartworm, Heule/Dryer, Headboggle, Horaflora, Arachnid Arcade, Fognozzle, Amphibious Gestures, Bullshit Detector, Slusser, and Terror Apart
The SF Weekly has more:
Tonight more than a dozen avant-noise iconoclasts raise benefit funds by doing with sound what a Wilson comic does on the page, i.e., create a dense mess of transgressive weirdness. Sonics range from shivering liquid phantasms (Amphibious Gestures) and fractal-smashing loop fabrications (Skullcaster) to double-bass-and-percussion improvs (Tony Dryer/Jacob Felix Heule duo) and beyond. The odditorium opens at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 11, at the Hemlock Tavern, with a donation between $7 and $20 required for entry.
