A bit more than a month after the glorious Electrobelly 2, I'm returning to the Rex stage, and once again collaborating with Life In Balance for a short (20-30-minute) improv set of organic tribal electronica...with belly dancers! And it's all to benefit the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force!
We're going to be mixing things up a bit--Steve with his newest synth, and I with my baglama-tuned guitar and my latest Tabla percussion patterns. (As well as the regular guitar and uke.) Things may get pretty psychedelic, actually. We'll be playing first or second, so get there early.
Also on the bill: Tribal fusion belly dance by Amethyst, Shanti, Astarte, Aviva, and the Inoor Dance company! Indian classical dance by Salimbam Dance School! Flamenco dance by Barbara Jo York, Ellen York, Eva Ramirez and Anjali Soi! Rock by The What Else?, Paul Tabachneck, Kevin Finn, and Chris Kleiner. Jazz/blues by Barbara Jo York! And Pittsburgh's own inimitable Phat Man Dee! And vegan baked goods, courtesy of the Vegan Goddess! (I'm telling you, the Peppermint Annies are worth checking out if you have any interest at all in desserts.) There's no reason not to go, unless you hate music, belly dance, or people with AIDS, in which case, well, you suck. But that's not you, so come on out. See you there!
Friday, March 9, 2007, The Rex (South Side), 1602 East Carson Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15203, 8 p.m. - midnight, $10 Cover, 21+. Proceeds benefit Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force.
