This is a past event.

Adrian Orange and Ali Baba 

When: Thu., Aug. 26, 7:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $6
It's been a while since we heard from Adrian Orange, co-founder of Marriage Records and the wunderkind behind the Thanksgiving and Adrian Orange and Her Band monikers. Between popping up on a few bills sporadically over the past couple years, Orange's release schedule has been nearly bare since the high profile Adrian Orange and Her Band on K Records in 2007, especially since Orange's discography prior to that was crammed with releases. So it'll be interesting to see what he's got up his sleeve for this show—we're expecting some synthed-out, dubby experiments—but the real draw will be Malian performer Ali Baba, whose Return to Your Roots album is available through Marriage Records. The music of Ali Kamiya fits in the vein of the tight webs of clean guitar lines and bubbling rhythms of similar "desert blues" acts from Mali, with urgent pleas of global compassion in the lyrics, making for laments that are still danceable.
