In their 33rd year of activity, Chicago avant-rock collective CHEER-ACCIDENT fall on Bar DeVille for two sets of new improvised work on Tuesday, March 11.
Founding member and prevailing ringleader of CHEER-ACCIDENT’s rotating cast of contributors, Thymme Jones has steadily elevated the project from the ’80s and ‘90s alternative fringe to a principled pedigree of a prog and art rock vanguard. Over the past decade, the band has secured its position as a foundational fixture in Chicago’s musical landscape and embodied brilliantly the spiritedness of artistic endeavor.
This Tuesday, Jones deploys CHEER-ACCIDENT as a five-piece with an intentionally uncertain assemblage of instrumentation. What we do know is that, at 10pm on Tuesday, March 11, CHEER-ACCIDENT will include Jeff Libersher on guitar and trumpet, Thymme Jones on trumpet and synth, Ross Feller on woodwinds, Charles Dudley Bayne, III on keys and Mike Hagedorn on trombone.
Please join us in celebrating the continued symbiosis of one of our most vibrant and longstanding art communities.
Over/Out at Bar DeVille (701 N Damen Ave, Chicago, Illinois), every Tuesday night at 10pm, vinyl selections by Joe Darling will be heard before, between, and after performances.
