(TV) OT Beefheart fans in NYC
This looks amazing, one of my favorite guitarists, a guy that appears on 2
tracks on my CD Inwood Stories is playin g wityh Eric Slick (drummer for
Adrian Belew). This guy Robbie Seahag Mangano is pretty much the best
guitarist I know and I know a lot of guitarists. He is the most well rounded
musician I know, started on bass at 13, playing weddings in New Jersey. He
also plays with the Grandmothers of Invention, the only guy in the band NOT
an original member of the Mothers of Invention.
There are many people worth seeing at this gig Eric Slick with Seahag is a
I will be in Dublin or Cork (catching Patti Smith) on June 4th which is my

If you are in New York, please come to this show:

Best Batch Yet! A Tribute to Captain Beefheart
Saturday, June 4, 8:00 PM
Bowery Poetry Club
308 Bowery (between Houston and Bleecker), NY, NY
All proceeds from the event will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis
On June 4th, a collection of NYC's finest musicians will pay tribute to the
influential singer/composer/artist/poet Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart,
who passed away from complications due to Multiple Sclerosis last December.
Impossible to define, classify, or categorize, Beefheart's music touched
upon the blues, free jazz, avant-garde, rock, prog, swing, & spoken-word,
culminating in his best-known work, "Trout Mask Replica". A sprawling
double-album released in 1969 and produced by Frank Zappa, "Trout Mask
Replica" is frequently mentioned by such publications as Mojo, The Wire, and
Rolling Stone as one of the greatest albums of all time.
Gary Lucas (Beefheart alumni, Jeff Buckley), Nona Hendryx (Labelle, Talking
Heads), Nina Persson (The Cardigans), Nathan Larson (Shudder To Think),
Cynthia Sley (Bush Tetras), Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices), Mike Fornatale
(The Left Banke), Eric Slick (Dr. Dog), and Weasel Walter (Behold The
Arctopus), will be joined by musicians from the rock, jazz, metal,
progressive, blues, experimental, & classical worlds to perform faithful and
interpretive versions of songs from Beefheart's entire catalog, from his
1966 debut "Safe As Milk" to his final record "Ice Cream For Crow", released
This will be a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of musicians who simply wish to
say "Thank You" to a man who changed their lives.
