Kim Rancourt 'plum plum' Record Release Party | The Bowery Electric | Monday, 22. May 2017

Kim Rancourt (Record Release) with Gary Lucas, Don Fleming, Joe Bouchard and Steve Shelley
Frank London
Alan Licht & Angela Jaeger
MC: Adam Realman
DJ: Julia Cafritz

Kim Rancourt has fronted the bands When People Were Shorter and Lived Near the Water, After That It's All Gravy and Shapir-O'Rama and been on a clutch of records, but plum plum is the first one to come out under his own name. Kim wrote the words, he and the band wrote all the music. About that band: Starting with Don Fleming, the guitarist (Velvet Monkeys, B.A.L.L., Gumball) and album producer (Teenage Fanclub, Screaming Trees, The Dictators, Alice Cooper) who assembled this klatch. YEAH. Joe Bouchard, founding bassist of the Blue Oyster Cult and studio savant. Also in attendance is drummer extraordinaire and human dynamo Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth). Two guitars—Fleming and the always in motion Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley, Gods and Monsters) laying a carpet of flowers and fugg over everything they touch. It’s glorious. This evening marks the first show by the band and the official Clown Heroes Record Release Party for Kim Rancourt: plum plum.

Julia Cafritz (***** Galore) will DJ. **** YEAH. Strongman Adam Realman from Sideshows by the Seashore will MC and display feats of daring & strength. Opening the show will be Grammy-winning trumpeter Frank London (The Klezmatics) and a duo with vocalist Angela Jaeger (Instinct, Pigbag) and experimental minimalist/free-jazz wizard Alan Licht (Blue Humans, Love Child).

Doors: 7:00 / Show: 8:00 pm
