Is this different from the 11/17/02 Rolling Stones tribute at the Hideout?

Yes; this was the Hideout Block Party show. All Stones stuff again--maybe 45 minutes worth. I've got the setlist somewhere...

Live Review: Califone @ The Hideout 8/13/06

Califone played to a sold-out Hideout crowd Sunday night. The set featured some new tracks from the upcoming album Roots & Crowns, but focused on the tried-and-true blues-folk experimentalism that has made them one of the Chicago underground’s greatest darlings.



Tim Rutili, Califone’s mastermind, was an unassuming presence on the stage, unafraid of sharing the spotlight. Onstage he possessed a quiet charm and a concentrated but not overwhelming passion. He switched between his guitar and his keyboard and sang in his raspy, strong but subtle drawl, which is perhaps the greatest living rock voice in the city.



Midway into the set two members of The Bitter Tears lent their brass wizardry to the performance, turning an already solid sound into a wall of thick, chaotic ramblings, harnessed and shaped by the musicians into powerful folk tunes.



Thankfully, a violin for Califone does not mean what a violin in a folk band usually means. Jim Becker spent most of his time strumming and pounding and tapping his various guitars and banjo, but he picked up a violin for certain tracks, such as “Michigan Girls” and plucked away, leaving the fiddling in the barn.



The highlight of the show came at the midway point with the song “Horoscopic. Amputation. Honey.” The performance began innocently enough with Rutili singing softly at the keys and Becker, along with percussionists Joe Adamik and Ben Massarella, backing him modestly. Eventually the song built and The Bitter Tears joined in; each member of the group worked independently to make his own sound. Becker struck his guitar strings, producing hollow, resonant feedback. The trombonist and trumpeter blared random ringing brass notes. Rutili did various sounds on his keyboard and shouted into a pick-up. Adamik and Massarella played diverse, intricate rhythms on various percussion instruments, a sound which culminated in them coming together on a single, solid, pattern pounded simultaneously on two drum kits.

What brings many people to Califone is its blend of traditional folk and modern experimentation. Perhaps the Hideout set could have been made more interesting and lively with a performance that favored the band’s more innovative side; however, concentrating on its blues roots did not make for a less successful show. It highlighted the simple and pure musicianship Califone owns, proving that to be a successful artist all you really need is a guitar and some talent, and perhaps a little honesty.

Califone Live
Die Suche nach der Suche


12.02.07, Köln, Gebäude 9.

Schon im Vorfeld macht sich eine komische Stimmung breit, angesichts der Tatsache, dass ich scheinbar als einziger auf dieses Konzert gehen möchte. Alles hat sich verspätet: Band, Türöffnung, Soundcheck, Einlass, die anderen Gäste; nur ich bin pünktlich und muss mich für eine geschlagene Stunde im Foyer mit Lesen beschäftigen, denn weit und breit ist kein anderer Besucher. Gut, am selben Tag spielen Decemberists und Hot Club De Paris, aber dass Köln zu klein für drei gute Konzerte ist – wer hätte das gedacht?

http://www.intro.de/live/nachlesen/23039610



Natürlich kommen doch ein paar Leute, aber so leer habe ich das Gebäude selten gesehen. Auch auf der Bühne waren Califone schon mal ein paar mehr. Auf drei Leute ist die Band im Augenblick zusammengeschrumpft, was eine ziemliche Herausforderung an die drei darstellt, aber auch an den Zuschauer, denn alle drei tauchen sofort in ihre vertüftelte Soundwelt ab. Der Schlagzeuger ist umgeben von mikrofonierten Daumenklavieren und Metallgeräten, die er mit einer Stricknadel malträtiert. Dazu Midikeyboard und Triggerpads, die er mit dem Fuß spielt. Auch interessant: der erste Schlagzeuger, den ich je ein Lautstärkepedal habe benutzen sehen.

Als Nerd bekam man also einiges geboten in Sachen: "Wie machen die das eigentlich?" Und anfangs bekamen sie es noch gut hin, immer mal wieder einen straighteren Song einzustreuen, mal aufzustehen und zu rocken (oder zumindest für ihre Verhältnisse zu rocken), gegen Ende haben sie sich dann aber doch verloren. Das ist vermutlich immer die Gefahr, wenn man so labyrinthische Musik macht wie Califone. Sie klingen ja auch auf Platte immer ein bisschen auf der Suche, ein bisschen fragmentarisch und unfertig. Als künstlerische Position ist das spannend, auf einer Bühne aber nur schwer vermittelbar.

Sie lösen dieses Problem, indem sie möglichst nah an ihren Alben bleiben, betont konzentriert rekonstruieren sie minutiös die suchenden Soundscapes und schaffen es auch über weite Strecken, die Spannung trotz der verwehten Stimmung ihrer Songs zu halten. Nur am Ende, bei 'Pink & Sour', dem Opener des neuen Albums bröckelt die Spannung. Mastermind Tim Rutili reißt eine Saite, das genügt, um die Katastrophe herbeizuführen. Man ist offenbar bei Califone keine Improvisationen gewohnt, denn nun rutscht die Band ins Belanglose ab. Merkwürdig, denn der Sound ist objektiv nicht sehr unterschiedlich als zuvor, aber die Spannung ist flöten. Man bemerkt die Unsicherheit der Band und dadurch kippt der Sound komplett. Das charakteristisch Suchende der Songs ist plötzlich wirklich Suche und wirkt peinlich.

Offenbar, um das wieder wett zu machen, kommt man noch mal für eine Zugabe auf die Bühne, denn eigentlich schien die Band nicht sonderlich begeistert von dem Abend. Ironie des Schicksals: bei der Zugabe reißt schon wieder eine Saite und dasselbe Spiel beginnt noch mal. Sichtlich genervt von seiner Gitarre gibt sich Tim Rutili dann auch gar keine Mühe mehr, den Song noch irgendwie zu retten. Als letzten Song spielen sie dann noch 'On The Steeple With The Shakes (X-Mas Tigers)', das versöhnt dann wieder etwas. Trotzdem insgesamt ein unbefriedigendes Konzert.



Christian Steinbrink hingegen sagt: "Toll, wie reich der us-amerikanische Gitarrenunderground immer noch ist. Califone bildeten dabei auch alles ab von klassischen Stilen wie Folk und Country bis hin zu sehr freien und ausschweifenden Improvisationen. Wobei gerade die Endlosgnidelei zum Schluss ruhig auch ein bißchen kompakter hätte ausfallen dürfen. Aber ich will mich nicht beschweren. Denn das, was an diesem Abend zu sehen war, war schon sehr beeindruckend. Schade nur, dass sie ihre Mannschaftsstärke im Vergleich zur letzten Tour halbieren mussten."
