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. (jzitt@humansystems.com)

Odd and unique. Percussion-heavy. Ranging from percussive spoken word to experimental noises to some Diamanda Galas-like heights to Meredith Monk-like vocalizations. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
