Music Consumption: Tim Berne
04/22/2000 Tim Berne: live

Finally saw Tim Berne live (with Michael Formanek), and they're an amazing team. It's criminal how few people were in the audience, but it was easy to get a good seat. Check out Ornery People for a sample of how they sound in this configuration, but they were definitely harder-edged when I saw them. Ornery People is great, though--the beginning is perfect, with Berne's playing on Formanek's "Jiggle the Handle" setting a noir-ish mood. It's the kind of music that plays in your head on the kind of evening on which you know you'll be waking up the next morning in a dumpster.
