Cheer-Accident @ Hunter-Gatherer, November 19
bigSphinx Productions is pleased to announce the return of Cuneiform recording artists CHEER-ACCIDENT on Friday, November 19. CHEER-ACCIDENT is always unpredictable, always entertaining, but darned hard to pigeonhole. Progressive in scope, they alternate between smart math rock, utter nonsense, and a weighty dose of Zappa-esque rhythmic tomfoolery.
Founded and led by drummer/singer Thymme Jones, CHEER-ACCIDENT also features longtime guitarist Jeff Libersher and bassist Alex Perkolup (formerly of The Flying Luttenbachers). As citizens of Chicago, they have also been known to associate with such characters as cellist Fred Lomberg-Holm, trombonist Jeb Bishop, and drummer Tim Daisy.
Even more incriminating is their recent split 7-inch with Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, The Ex, and Voodoo Muzak.
CHEER-ACCIDENT is difficult to dislike, and if given the chance, they seem happy to let you take whatever you like from their challenging oeuvre.
The music will commence at 10:00 PM, although of course Hunter-Gatherer will be open all evening for your fine dining experience. Tickets will be sold at the door for a mere $5. As always, attendance is mandatory. This concert will take place at Hunter-Gatherer, which is situated at 900 Main Street in Columbia.
