Liquorball Resurrected!

Liquorball has once again re-immerged from the murky depths of acidrock purgatory. The latest resurrection will include an in-store and a mini festival performance. All shows will be with the legendary sax man Steve MacKay. And it just so happens that vinyl stock from Liquorball's long out of print Blackjack catalog was unearthed in the Revolver warehouse - 27 copies of "Hauls Ass" and 29 copies of "Live in Hitler's & Bunker". Talk about instant karma.

Friday, 4/4, 8-10pm

Grady's Record Refuge, 2546 E. Main St., Ventura, 805-648-5565

Steve MacKay with Liquorball/Liquorball with Steve MacKay

Yes, it's THAT Steve MacKay. You won't wanna miss the legendary Stooges saxophonists' return to Grady's Record Refuge (he played our grand opening in 2003) as he performs with San Francisco's Liquorball for a night of rarified energy music!

Besides playing with the reformed Stooges, Steve MacKay has also been playing experimental music with the likes of Smegma, Radon All-Stars, and the Blues Prostitutes of late. His resume extends back to the mid-60's and includes stints with the Violent Femmes, Snakefinger, and Commander Cody, among so many others........once described as "San Francisco's answer to nothing", Liquorball's spontaneous juggernauts of sound have been decorating the fringes of the underground for nearly 20 years. They now perform infrequently, but new recordings are rumored...........Liquorball and Steve MacKay first collaborated in 1999.

As always, this is a FREE show........though donations to the traveling artists will be gratefully accepted.

Liquorball will be also playing this Saturday (April 5th) at the Dung Mummy 5 year Anniversary/Post-Asiatic Festival @ Zero Point in Los Angeles. Click here for directions and full lineup.
