Eugene Chadbourne to Perform Wednesday, June 4 at the Tap Room

SOURCE: Published: 2009-04-23
This just in: Eugene Chadbourne (pictured) is coming to St. Louis to perform on Wednesday, June 4 at the Schlafly St. Louis Brewery and Tap Room.

The email sent by the Tap Room's Brett Underwood says, “We don't have all the particulars set yet, but I do know that Eugene Chadbourne will perform two sets (the first one probably starting around 7:30 p.m.) on Wednesday, June 4th in the Club Room at the Schlafly Tap Room. It will either be a free show or a $5 dollar cover. (Possibly a $10 cover that would include the cost of the first pint of Schlafly Beer.)"

Chadbourne is an improvising guitarist and banjo player whose music contains elements of jazz, rock, punk, country, folk, and various other genres. In addition to his work as a solo artist and with his 1980s group Shockabilly, Chadbourne has performed and recorded with John Zorn, Fred Frith, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, the Carla Bley Band, Camper Van Beethoven, Jello Biafra, They Might Be Giants, Jimmy Carl Black, and many others. Chadbourne also is somewhat famous - or perhaps infamous? - as the inventor of the electric rake, made by attaching an electric guitar pickup to an ordinary lawn rake. StLJN will have more details on his St. Louis gig when they become available.
