Couple a things…

Silkworm, Libertine (2013 Comedy Minus One)

Silkworm, Libertine (2013 Comedy Minus One)

Silkworm’s long out of print ’94 LP Libertine is being re-released by Comedy Minus One Records. “This is a double 12″ pressing with a supplementary CD including ‘The Marco Collins Sessions’ as well as two additional recordings from the band’s time at Pachyderm Studio,” says the press release. “Includes all-new artwork throughout plus a full-color insert with liner notes by Silkworm’s Tim Midgett. Mastered from the original 1/2″ tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service.”

I always loved Silkworm and look forward to this reissue, which is expected in July. More info here.

In this week’s column, a remembrance of film critic Roger Ebert, who passed away last week. You can read it in this weeks issue of The Reader or online right here.

Tonight at Slowdown Jr. our old pal Steve Bartolomei returns. Steve is living in the Big Apple these days, but when he lived here he fronted a little folk-rock band called Mal Madrigal whose members have included Ben Brodin, Chris Esterbrooks, Mike Saklar, John Kotchian, Dan McCarthy, Ryan Fox, Eric Ernst, Matt Baum, Casey Scott and Orenda Fink. No idea who will be backing Steve tonight, though the openers are Kevin Pike/John Kotchian Duo and the Mike Saklar Trio, so there’s a clue. $8, 9 p.m.

Also tonight, Japanese psych band Acid Mothers Temple plays at The Waiting Room with Tjutjuna. $12, 9 p.m.
