The Optimist Returns

In the early 00s, I hosted an evening of sound at Brisbane Powerhouse as part of What Is Music?. It was the first time it had headed north to Brisbane. On that evening was Otomo Yoshihide, Sachiko M and Mr David Grubbs. I recall being utterly transfixed by Grubbs’ ability to pull a kind of lyrical majesty out of his guitar. Seriously, the guy just made it sing in a way I just did not expect. This month he returns to AU, in support of his excellent and provocative new book Records Ruin The Landscape. He will be in Melbourne and Brisbane. Check out the events for more deets.
