Legendary Moog maestro Jean Jacques Perrey will perform live in San Francisco tomorrow evening, August 29, at 8pm. The intimate concert is presented by RE/Search Publications who have done wonders to turn on multiple generations of Incredibly Strange Music fans to the tripped-out tunes of Perrey, a true electronica pioneer. From RE/Search:
Jean Jacques PERREY, resident of France, will play a live concert in San Francisco of "Happy Retro Moog Pop"! In the 60s, the 77-year-old composer produced some of the most amazingly inventive/humorous music ever collaged together with a razor blade and tape, on albums like The In Sound from Way Out! J-J Perrey's recent CD, Circus of Life, is one of the best recordings ever to grace our stereo system (every track is great).
Jean Jacques will play the Ondoline, accompanied by Dana Countryman. (Their new CD collaboration, The Happy ElectroPop Music Machine [Oglio Records], is scheduled for release on Sept 25, 2006.) This personal concert will be legendary and you will be glad you were there in an intimate setting--rabid fans of the music of Perrey and Kingsley should not miss this event!
