Don Cab, Fromanhole tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:49 pm July 24, 2007

I haven’t kept track of Don Caballero for years. In fact, I thought they’d broken up earlier in the decade. So when I saw this show slated for The Waiting Room tonight, I was a bit surprised. In fact, according to the all-knowing Wikipedia, Don Cab did break up in 2000, shortly after American Don was released. Says Wiki: “To equal parts surprise and criticism, (drummer Damon) Che reformed Don Caballero in 2003 with an entirely new lineup consisting of members of Pittsburgh’s Creta Bourzia, a band that bore clear marks of influence from Don Caballero. The new members are Jeff Ellsworth on guitar, Gene Doyle on guitar, and Jason Jouver on bass. (Original members Mike Banfield and Pat Morris were invited to participate but both declined).” Che apparently vowed never to work with original second guitarist Ian Williams again. So Che is the only original member in tonight’s line-up, according to Wikipedia. The band, who recorded for Touch and Go for years, now records for metal label Relapse Records. I have to assume they sound somewhat like they used to, but I haven’t heard any of their recent recordings. Opening the show is Omaha’s own math rock/noise rock masters Fromanhole — who alone are worth the $10 admission. Show starts at 9 p.m.
