Comments about live performance:
Sunday evening I saw Ellen Christi and her band Alienstalk at Crush in Adams Morgan. Good show: picture someone partway between Annette Peacock and Urszula Dudziak fronting a way-more-chaotic percussionless King Crimson. Unfortunately her voice was mixed way down, so it served mostly as a textural element. I got their self-titled CD at the show, which is even better than the performance.

E. Christi, C. Lodati, J. Schlegel, L. Archetti
Odd and unique. Percussion-heavy. Ranging from percussive spoken word to experimental noises to some Diamanda Galas-like heights to Meredith Monk-like vocalizations. (email@example.com)
