**”Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps” has officially shortened her name to, Lovely Socialite.
We’re delighted to share this surprise show on Friday with our friends Ben Ferris – bass, Paul Dietrich – trumpet, & Miguel McQuade – drums. In case y’all haven’t figured it out, Lovely Socialite is pulling together her second album, “Toxic Consonance”. Now that the record is finished, we’re designing the packaging & getting a Kickstarter rolling for which to pre-order the album. Keep your eyes & ears out for Toxic Consonance‘s release!! In the mean time, please enjoy our first video-single, “Black Yukon Sucker Punch”:

Australian percussionist Will Guthrie, now based in France, is currently on tour through the US! Luckily for us, he is stopping by Madison for a set this Wednesday @ Bright Red Studios!! His creations for percussion & electronics often lead with texture and are patiently thorough. Accompanying side effects of Will Guthrie’s playing may include deep trance-states. Please ask your doctor if Will Guthrie is right for you.
Brennan Connors & Miguel McQuade have been cooking up some secret jams and are now to unleash them upon us! As a bandmate of Brennan’s, I’m obviously a fan of his playing; but it’s always a special thing to hear an alter ego of a bandmate as they interact with different musicians. I greatly admire Miguel’s drum style and sensitivity. The last time I played with him, I had a neck ache for about 3 days! That’s how hard I was bopping to his grooves! Check out Miguel’s electronic music to get an idea of what I mean >>
I’ll be performing a new solo cello set as BC Grimm. This polyglotist acoustic collage will include varying styles: JS Bach, erhu Chinese fiddle tunes, a tickling of flamenco, original extended-technique pizzicato pieces, excerpts from original theater scores & experimental improvs.
