On Fillmore Announce Select Dates For Summer

3hhs_onfillmore2_7It is all too rare that percussionist Glenn Kotche and bassist Darin Gray are able to convene for their On Fillmore project. Once dubbed “the rhythm section’s revenge” by Jim O’Rourke, Kotche and Gray traveled to Japan earlier this year, both to perform their own shows and and play in O’Rourke’s band. The duo’s moody November 2009 Dead Oceans debut, Extended Vacation, was celebrated by those who realized just how special an occassion it is when these two talents get together. The New York Times called the album, “a peculiar update of early-1960s exotica, with a heart of darkness in place of a setting sun,” and NPR’s Bob Boilen named Extended Vacation as one of his favorite albums of the fall.┬áSince the album’s release, Kotche and Gray have been engaged in sporadic but intense rehearsals, attempting to hone the subtle complexities of the album (which features exotic bird calls, marching band explosions and purring motors) into a robust live experience.

And now, On Fillmore has a short run of very special dates planned for the coming months, one of which includes a performance in Chicago’s Milennium Park w/ Nels Cline. Joining On Fillmore on the other dates is Rachel Grimes, one of the forces behind the minimalist classical ensemble Rachel’s. These rare intimate shows are not to be missed for longtime fans and musical adventurers. See the full list of dates below.

Don’t miss the eerie, space safari video for Extended Vacation‘s “Master Moon.” Like a tour documentary filmed driving across Venus, we watch as days pass by like minutes (or that the other way around?).
