Dr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps play Best Video Film & Cultural Center Fri., Apr. 1. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.
This is an indoor show so attendance is 30 max. Proof of vaccination is required to enter and masks are required. (This will be updated if circumstances allow a loosening of these restrictions.)
Dr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps plays music from around the world and uses it as a launching pad for improvisations that never lose their sense of groove—whether it’s Colombian cumbias, Ethiopian jazz, Romanian horas, Argentinian tangos, traditional music from the United States, or original songs by accordionist and singer Adam Matlock.
Among the material the group will play at this show are live scores to three early silent movie short films—Camille de Morlhon and Segundo de Chomón’s “A Panicky Picnic” (1909); Segundo de Chomón’s “Métamorphoses” (1912); and Segundo de Chomón’s “The Haunted House” (1908).
The members of Dr. Caterwaul’s are Adam Matlock, Brian Slattery, Chris Cretella, Mike Tepper, Chris Cretella, and Michael Paolucci.
