Carla Bozulich's Evangelista, The Dead Science – Knitting Factory $10/$12

What better way to celebrate Bastille Day than to witness one of the worlds' foremost chanteuses? Carla Bozulich is an uncommonly creative, intense, and prolific musician who, despite the nearly unanimous enthusiastic admiration of critics and musical peers, has never really achieved the notoriety she deserves. With a powerful and dynamic voice that whispers and wails in darkness like nobody on this side of Diamanda, Bozulich is a stylist, gymnast, and performer without parallel. You may remember her from early-1990s industrial group Ethyl Meatplow, mid-1990s gothic Americana of Geraldine Fibbers, or her late-1990s ambitiously ethereal collaboration with guitar hero Nels Cline, Scarnella. She recorded her first solo album, a personal reinvention of Willie Nelson’s Red Headed Stranger, featuring the red headed stranger himself, a few years back. Her current album, Evangelista, again showcasing the unmistakable and inventive work of Cline, as well as members of Silver Mt. Zion, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, and others, continues in the experimental tradition of Scarnella - but for my money is equally more coherent and varied (and I liked Scarnella). You'll be shocked and amazed at how this natural wonder and fine artist achieves her recorded feats in front of your face. Utterly heartstopping.

Get there early for the power of Seattle's Dead Science - another fine example of hyper- musical post-modern contemporary west coast darkness.

Tomorrow, why Siren Festival sucks more than ever...
