Sabe Flores in Eugene



Sabe Flores came to Eugene to play some venues including Cozmic Pizza where I drew her and Connor MacLeod.

And Whirled pies where I got to play with her. Fun times! She is playing more in Alaska this summer!100_3219sabe 100_3217sabe

She visited the Village School and told students about having a career in music! She has been able to travel to Brazil and received scholarships but it takes lots of practice! The kids loved her! Connor kicks butt on the banjo too!100_3152 100_3149


Bacuntry Bruthers, CJ Boyd and Kirtan Choir

Here are drawings I made last summer of Kirtan Choir. It was fun to open for them and they played a very cool set of improvisational music inspired by classical music and experimental styles. Below are drawings of Ba’cuntry Bruthers, one of my favorite bands of all time, and the subject of many a drawing by me. They don’t play often enough, but last week Fairbanks got two wonderful shows in Ester at the Malemute Saloon and Ivory Jacks.

This weekend is AYP so I”ll be posting many more new drawings, also my friends Feeding Frenzy are going on tour with Netherfriends all over Alaska. They play the Pub Friday with Work, and The Marlin on Saturday. Also I just booked Lenka Dusilova (August 3)  and Broombox (august 12) for the fair. Busy weeks coming up, lots more drawings on the way.

Lenka Dusilova and Sabe Flores

I was fortunate enough to be an audience member at a concert the other night with Lenka Dusilova and Sabe Flores.

Sabe’s originals are fun and full of spice. She plays the cello aggressively, with perfect control of arpeggios, coaxing pleasant squeaks and potent growls out of her instrument. It shows that she developed her chops playing Bach and other challenging classical composers.

Lenka sang mostly in her native Czech. Her voice is fantastic, and she used a looping pedal to layer her voice, subtly manipulating delay and reverb to emphasize and complement her vocal experiments. With the looping pedal she created chords of her own voice. It was impressive to hear a choir of Lenkas channeling energy from the past, bringing it to the present.
Her compositions reminded me of many of my favorite musicians, Emiliana Torrini, Hanne Hukkelburg and Kaki King.
Certainly a memorable performance, when the two played together, the sum was more than its parts. We will miss Sabe much as she returns to Boston to continue college. I eagerly look forward to another concert from Lenka.

Her album can be purchased here.


Here is a video of one of the songs she played at the show:

Apparently, Lenka is quite well known internationally, performing in Europe’s largest cities, and her Wikipedia page even says she opened for The Rolling Stones. We were lucky to have her here, and in such a small intimate venue.
Sabe has not yet released a cd of her music, but when she does, you can be sure there will be a review here!
