aardvark presents: JUCIFER and SOUL POWER TRIO Member Picks Image

When: Sun., Nov. 8, 9 p.m. 2009

Amber Valentine of JUCIFER has redefined the role of the "frontman" in rock. Touring constantly since 2001, she is notorious for her overwhelmingly intense live show, courtesy of her voice, guitar, and 6000 watts of amplification. That's right, six THOUSAND watts. JUCIFER comes to Chicago this weekend for a show with SOUL POWER TRIO, the all-star group based here in the city. The trio's rock credentials are undeniable: lead guitarist Karl E. H. Seigfried has been heard on recordings with members of Hawkwind, Gong, Psychic TV, and Soft Machine; bassist Aaron Getsug plays with Hi-Fi and the Roadburners; drummer Chris Avgerin is a member of Reader favorites Blood of the Tyrant. Throwbacks to an earlier mode of live rock performance, their completely improvised shows answer the question of what it would have sounded like if Jimi Hendrix had been a member of Black Sabbath. Highly recommended.
