Kotche + eighth blackbird + Harris Theater = Potentially Mindblowing

2008_8thblkbrd_kotche.jpgGlenn Kotche, drummer for Loose Fur and some other little local band named Wilco, plays percussion tonight with local avant-classical sextet eighth blackbird at The Harris Theater. Kotche's solo drumming is truly mind-blowing -- go on, watch one of his performances -- and we're told he will be debuting a brand new piece amongst some other familiar material.

Kotche on his own would be well worth attending, but he will also collaborate with the musicians of the Grammy Award-winning group eighth blackbird during a portion of the evening as well, promising an interesting mixture of improvisation and classical aesthetics.

Glenn Kotche and eighth blackbird perform tonight at The Harris Theater, 205 E Randolph, 7:30 p.m., $30, all ages
