Stoo Odom & Roger Kunkel with Hal Kolodney opening
ROGER KUNKEL and STOO ODOM first played together in the seminal THIN WHITE ROPE. Based in Davis, CA, the group became an influential “cult” band in the ’80’s and ’90’s, citing Nirvana, Modest Mouse, and Lydia Lunch among their ardent fans. After multiple albums, Euro-tours, and MTV appearances, the band split in 1992.
ROGER KUNKEL (guitar/ vocals) has remained in Davis, forming the ACME ROCKET QUARTET and CLOUD SEEDER as well as launching a solo career. Spanning bluegrass, jazz, and Krautrock, from delicate acoustic sounds to raging feedback, he won’t bore you, that’s for sure.
STOO ODOM (bass/ vocals) formed San Francisco’s GRAVES BROTHERS DELUXE before returning to his native New Orleans in 2013. Known in NOLA for his work with the SLEAZEBALL ORCHESTRA and R. SCULLY’S ROUGH 7, his solo work involves upright bass and his own twisted compositions, with a (hopefully) tasteful smattering of electronics.
