Those sad souls who missed Green Jello's amazingly bizarre performance at the Evil Wine Carnival Sept. 29 are in luck. Evil Wine Presents has announced it will be bringing the band back to the Red Room to perform on New Year's Eve, Monday, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. The price of that shitshow will be the pauper-perfect sum of $5.
The band's singer, Bill Manspeaker, is also making tentative plans to stick around Les Bois for a spell to do some recording with several musicians he met on his last visit: Dustin Jones of The Hand, Geno Lopez of The Sneezz and Cameron Andreas from CAMP.
For more about the pending recording project and a preview of what Boise might be in for on NYE, hit up video.boiseweekly.com to see the Green Jello episode of Boise Weekly's continuing video series on local music happenings, Scenes From a Scene.
Another blast from the past to look forward to is a recently announced show from Blowfly, the masked alter-ego of Motown songwriter Clarence Reid. Why masked? Because when Blowfly started writing and recording dirty raps in the late '60s and early '70s, you could still get arrested and canned from your day job for that shiznit.
Now 73 years young, Reid will be playing at Red Room Sunday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 at the door. Bring yo' earmuffs, bitches.
In local news, Americana sweethearts AKA Belle announced on its Facebook page that the band will be entering the studio in November to record the follow-up to its 2012 album, Disappearing Night. To quote a comment from Tim Johnstone at 94.9 FM The River: "Woo to the hoo."
And finally, Starfucker, aka, the band with the name that always incites commenter outrage on our website, will return to Boise to play at Reef, Tuesday, Oct. 23, which is good, because Starfucker's electro-pop tunes are imminently danceable.
That show is supposed to start at 10 p.m., with Onuinu opening. But anyone who has ever seen Starfucker before knows that it will actually start whenever the band finally gets around to it. Either way, it will cost $12 advance or $15 at the door.
