Saturday Matinee – Avner the Eccentric, Khruangbin & Raskahuele Estridente

That’s some class clowning. While street performing in Paris,  Avner Eisenberg (aka Avner the Eccentric) was once arrested for buffoonery in public.

Space surf funk jazz mixed with world music = Khruangbin.
The name is Thai for “aeroplane,” and they make their recordings in a barn in  Burton, Texas (pop. 300). There’s more about them here than on their cool website.

Formed in 2004, L.A.’s Raskahuele Estridente is sort of a latino version of Fishbone, and I like their style.  Their song topics include socio-political / immigration issues mixed in with fun stuff.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, fight for the leftovers, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Just noticed that WordPress is dicking around again. New “improvements” just vaporized the widgets in the sidebar and replaced the Classic editor with the new “Gutenberg” crap. Not sure how long I’m gonna put up with it…

I’m sure it meant something.

From Lustige Blätter 1919.

Funny papers was the title of a German-language satire magazine. After a brief start-up phase in Hamburg, the magazine was published as a weekly newspaper from 1886 to 1944 in Berlin. It was founded and published by the writer Alexander Moszkowski.

Yeah! RIGHT IN HIS PANTS! EEEW!

I don’t understand it either, but it has something to do with Spiderman and the election results.
