Weasel Walter, Peter Evans, And 30 of Their Closest Friends Hit the Road in Support of Two Jazztacular New Releases!

There are many timeless combinations that are so culturally ingrained, so perfectly complementary that we modern-world citizens automatically imagine them as inextricable: macaroni ‘n’ cheese, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Minneapolis and St. Paul. And, now, you can add to that list No Wave aficionado Weasel Walter -- he of The Flying Luttenbachers, XBXRX, Lake of Dracula, To Live and Shave in L.A. (and tons and tons of other bands) fame -- and, well, the many gifted and talented musicians accompanying him on his upcoming fall tour. Mr. Walter and crew will be tearing up the East Coast (plus Chicago!) in what one can only assume will be an explosion of avant-garde jazz awesomeness. All this to-do is in support of two new releases: one, the combined effort of the Peter Evans and Weasel Walter group entitled Oculus Ex Abyssum; the other, a live CD-R by the Evans/Fei/Smith/Walter outfit. Both are available from ugEXPLODE Records. There's a lot to list here, so let's get to it.
