There’s room at the Rockhouse for everyone — even Republicans!! This week we feature music about electoral politics and parties of any kind, political or not. Plus an homage to that Republican mascot, the pachyderm. A birthday tribute to Dinah Washington and music by the Final Solution from an unheard soundtrack for an unseen movie!
Some fine ensembles from Norway to begin the evening: Nederlaget quintet and Chateau Neuf big-band folk-band. An interesting Swedish trio of fiddle, sax and percusssion…[ni:d] and a Nordic Roots artist preview from Annbjørg Lien.
Reviewing recent visits from musicians Sharon Jones Cheikh Lo with a little bit of a Labor and American/African spin ; including info on the opportunities for expression over the next week with the RNC in town.
If you are a fan of Axel and his Dog (Clellan Card) tune in at about the 45 minute mark of the first and third hours for a few minutes from the treehouse. Also a few songs and assorted stuff in honor of Dr. Lee Deforest. The play list for this week is there as well.
Tonight Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss parked themselves at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. It was very different kind of Echo Chamber, as we ventured into some twangy, instrumental surf rock, cool old school RB, a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, swanky jazz, weird electronic music, and movie soundtracks. Included in the middle of the show was a special mix straight from the TurnTableTerrorist at Echo Beach on WLUW-FM, Chicago.
