Yuka Honda & Petra Haden – Tonic $12
Miho Hatori and Friends – The Stone 10PM $10

What follows is a recipe for your own personal Cibo Matto reunion tonight. While you probably won’t see the duo perform together, if your vigilant, you can witness live sets by both Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda back to back within a few blocks of one another. Minor tabloid celebrity Yuka Honda, Cibo Matto’s keyboardist and background vocalist has found herself in a new partnership currently named “If by Yes” with one of Charlie Haden’s talented daughters, the virtuosic violin-sawing golden-throated Petra (who also currently plays with everyone from Bill Frissell to The Foo Fighters). Their remainder of their band tonight is also nothing to sneeze at – a perverse mixture that includes Sean Lennon, Matto bassist Timo Ellis, downtown drum legend Kenny Wollesen, and pop singing sisters The Pierces. Since they play at both 8 and 10, you can catch the early show and make it just in time to catch Cibo Matto’s vocalist Miho Hatori’s 10 o’clock set at The Stone (Norfolk to lower Avenue C shouldn’t take more than fifteen minute at a relaxed pace). Miho’s band is also an impressive bunch, consisting of world-class improvisers like the brilliant otherworldly cellist/composer Okkyung Lee, keyboardist/singer/songwriter Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), prolific collaborating downtown bassist Shanir Blumenkranz, and avant harpist Shelley Burgon. After taking in both shows, go home, close your eyes and combine both ingredients. Pleasant dreams...
