*A QUICK NOTE ABOUT THE DOOR TIME FOR THIS SHOW: In order to ensure that plenty of our patrons can also make it to Zanzabar to see Earth and Mark McGuire the same night, the doors for this show will open promptly at 7 PM, with music to follow. Tim and Bill will play solo and duo sets, but there is no “opener” per se. Refunds due to lateness will not be granted.

BILL ORCUTT – former guitarist of noise-rockers Harry Pussy – went under the radar for several years after his first solo LP in ’97. However, he resurfaced promptly in 2009 with the LP A New Way To Pay Old Debts, consisting of eight acoustic songs driven by visceral, spastic clatter, backed by either sung, grunted or chanted vocals. It’s safe to say no one handles an acoustic guitar like Bill Orcutt, and we are all better for it. That fine line between ‘genius’ and ‘crazy’ is his to tread.


TIM BARNES is an internationally-known percussionist, electronic musician, and recording producer/engineer who has played and recorded with Sonic Youth, Wilco, Body/Head, Jim O’Rourke, Silver Jews, Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex, The Tower Recordings, The For Carnation, and MV+EE, as well as being featured in countless multiple other settings, from jazz-influenced free-improvisation to full-on rock n’ roll. He is the Artistic Director of DREAMLAND, and also runs the newly-revived Quakebasket record label (best known for its mid-1990s archival releases of solo work by Angus MacLise, poet and original drummer for the Velvet Underground). A California native, Tim moved to Louisville, Kentucky in 2007 from his longtime musical base, New York City.
