3/24/06 The Nomad World Pub:
Desdamona with Keston & Westdal
Not exactly down with spoken-word, but the hip-hop is pretty damn slick. Backed by Keston & Westdal they played an hour set that ranged from straight spoken word to full out funky-ass hip hop, sprinkled with spoken word back by Keston & Westdal’s brand of knob twisting space techno.
Keston & Westdal
With Tim Glenn accompaning on drums, this set was reminiscent of the deep down and dirty sets at the Dinkytowner. Playing infront of a audience that was jammed into the Nomad, they broke it down for all (yalls).
As the taper guy told me, “These guys will blow your mind.” And they did. I saw the trumpet player play a conch shell and the sax player play some sort of digital theremin. Loud crazy noises that morphed to and from song that produced one interesting set.
