At 10:30 Rebecca Liberty & Guglielmo Pieragostini join us to share a story of Kansas City’s music community. This past summer, Rebecca, a longtime friend of Guglielmo’s family from Fermo, Italy, proposed a music project for Guglielmo to come to Kansas City and experience our music community as an observer, and participant in live performances. In six weeks Guglielmo was able to see and hear over 55 bands, in 25 venues, with invitations to play in live performances with David Regnier, Dead Voices, The Ants, and to jam with Kaye Johnston, Mark Lowrey and Zach Morrow. Guglielmo didn’t bring his guitar on the plane so Marco Pascolini loaned him his electric Fender, Kaye Johnston loaned him an acoustic guitar, and Chad Bryan, from The Ants, loaned him an electric guitar for rehearsal and for two shows with The Ants, at Californo’s and Holy Cow.
At 11:00 Kansas City based musician and songwriter Andrew Foshee joins us to share music from his new record, STRANGE RELATIONS, recorded earlier this year in Nashville, at The Bomb Shelter with producer and engineer Andrija Tokic, who has worked with, Alabama Shakes, Benjamin Booker, and Hurray for the Riff Raff. Strange Relations is “a hallucinatory song cycle from the perspective of a human being held captive by aliens in their spacecraft as they attentively study his dreams to better understand the human condition.” Andrew Foshee plays The Truman, at One East Pershing Road, KCMO, Saturday, November 18, at 8:00 PM, with Wade Bowen.
