Minus 5 in the UK
After the "Robyn Hitchcock and the Minus 3" tour "The Minus 5" will perform in London. John Ramberg will fly over for this show and join the band for their show at Dingwalls, which was the scene of a legendary concert in 2001 by the Four Croakers (Scott McCaughey, Ken Stringfellow, Robyn Hitchcock and Mike Mills.) There might be a second date added on July 11, but that still has to be decided upon.
More info on the Japanese tour of Robyn Hitchcock and The Minus 5 will follow later. Also stay tuned for a possible Robyn Hitchcock and The Minus 3 tour in Australia.

Slow Music on Tour (Bill Rieflin, Peter Buck,...)
Two evenings with Bill Rieflin and Peter Buck: Last week at the Tractor, the two full-time members of R.E.M. powered the Minus 5, fronted by former Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey, through a set of non sequitur originals and garage-rock classics. The energy level was a notch or two below a furniture-breaking party, but it was probably the best frat-rock being played anywhere in Seattle that night.
This past October, the pair joined to create a much different sound when Rieflin's Slow Music sextet played three sets at the Crocodile. Rieflin, a veteran of the Telepaths and the Blackouts, not to mention industrial rockers Ministry, gave up his seat behind the drum kit to Matt Chamberlain to explore echoing piano chords and synthesizer textures, while Buck's folky clangor gave way to something more subtle, and King Crimson/Bowie vet Robert Fripp added "triggered sounds" to his trademark guitar whir. The sense of open space in the music recalled—without sounding like—'70s Miles Davis, or the long, inexorable build of an Art Ensemble of Chicago performance.

website. Two dates are listed, October 7 in Nara and October 8th in Tokyo. Both those dates will be with Robyn Hitchcock.

Mississippi Studios is a cool place. Think about seeing a concert in your living room with about 100 of your friends. Its got a very small stage and an eclectic mix of theater chairs, benches, church pews, and bar stools. PBR is just two dollars and out in the backyard they show popeye cartoons on the side of the building next door.
