Gachet Salon featuring Rodney DeCroo, Torsten Muller and Brad Cran, Nov. 25, 8 PM

Apologies for the hiatus induced by traveling again. 

Although I’m only familiar with Rodney DeCroo, the others sound great. The Gachet Salon is a very interesting space in Gastown. 

From the Facebook page:


Gatchet Salon is a night of multidisciplinary performances in the intimate setting of a gallery. The night’s featured performers are:

Rodney DeCroo: 

Canadian Folk / Alternative Country Singer-songwriter will be screening a new video for his song War Torn Man directed by Flick Harrison. He’ll also play an acoustic set of songs and poems accompanied by upright bassist Mark Haney. Rodney has released five cds with the label Northern Electric Records and tours throughout Canada and the USA. 

Torsten Muller-

Free music / jazz improviser bassist who has performed concerts all over the world with a diverse array of gifted improvisers including Evan Parker, John Russell, Jon Rose, Joelle Leander, John Zorn, Arto Lindsay, Lol Coxhill, Alexander Schlippenbach and Paul Lovens among many others. Torsten regularly performs at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and is co-curator of the annual TIme Flies Improvised Music Festival. 

Brad Cran-

Vancouver Poet Laureate will be reading poems from his book The Good Life as well as from his upcoming book Ink on Paper. Brad’s first book of nonfiction Hope in Shadows: Stories and Photographs of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (with Gillian Gerome) won the Vancouver Book award and has raised over 50,000 for the people of the Downtown Eastside. 

AND the night’s special guest will be:

The Minimalist Jug Band (aka Al Mader)-

He is the wild child of the often dark and dangerous world of washtub bass poetry and tours regularly with Canadian hillbilly-boogie-western swing-jazz artist Petunia.
