Lobero LIVE Blasting Into the Past with ‘Bill Frisell: Guitar in the Space Age!’

Lobero LIVE is pleased to present "Bill Frisell: Guitar in the Space Age!" with Greg Leisz, Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen on Monday, Jan. 26.

For this special night, Frisell blasts into the past to mine the catalog of the largely instrumental guitar-based music from the 1950s and 1960s — when America was racing to the moon, and the sounds of an electric guitar were pushing popular music into the future.

Frisell is joined by fellow guitar master Leisz on electric and pedal steel guitars, and his trio partners Scherr on bass and Wollesen on drums. From surf and rock classics like the Chantay’s "Pipeline," Duane Eddy’s "Rebel Rouser," Link Wray’s "Rumble," plus the Byrds’ "Turn, Turn, Turn," the Beach Boys’ "Surfer Girl" and the Kinks’ "Tired of Waiting for You," this evening of truly iconic electric guitar music will be outta this world.

Since his early days as a key collaborator with John Zorn, Frisell has steadily expanded his sonic purview, staking a claim to an ever-greater range of media, material and musical traditions. From Charles Ives and Aaron Copland to Buster Keaton and Bob Dylan, from urban thrash and American Songbook ballads to country blues and Nashville twang, Frisell distills the essence of the American experience.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
