Description

"To attempt a definition of the Sun City Girls is to dare them to defy it. Over the course of more than two decades and a plethora of albums, singles, cassettes, compilations and side projects, the Girls' sprawling, hallucinogenic body of work ranges from their signature alien-jazz improv to Asian-tinged psychedelia, middle eastern meditations, trashy rock covers, smutty satire, ranting psychodrama and far beyond. Live, the band was infamous for often adding an unhinged dramatic element, incorporating elements of everything from Kabuki theater and conspiracy theory to shadow puppetry and pan-global instrumental exotica." - Mike Rowell

This show will feature an opening 40 minute film of the late Charles Gocher's video experiments followed by two sets of music. Alan Bishop and Richard Bishop will be performing Sun City Girls' songs as an acoustic guitar duet. This tour will most likely be the only time this show will be presented as such and is a tribute both to Charles Gocher and selected music from the 27 year legacy of Sun City Girls.
