Eugene Chadbourne live at Elektronisk Jazzjuice festival in Aarhus,
Denmark, on July 19, 2008
(part of the Aarhus International Jazzfestival). Part one of
The gig was in the little courtyard between the two venues of
Jazzjuice where there was a bit of people walking back and forth.
And it was raining a bit. Also, the sound engineer was frantically
trying to get the amp to work for when Eugene had to change from
banjo to electric guitar. Hence he was "on stage" on and off all the
time. Unfortunately somewhat annoying. But he did get it to work in
the end. Eugene played a superb gig, though. I've read that it was
one of his less "avantgarde" shows compared to usually, but damn it
Recording wise I've put the rough video up here - minus the passages
where the sound engineer is "too active" and actually stands in
front of the camera. So that explains the cuts here and there. But
all in all this is the most of the gig. Put together in two 10
minute sections for you viewing pleasure on YouTube. I bought three
cds from Eugene at the show - one of them being "Peking Doc", which
I have enjoyed so much since then. I'm not that knowledgeable about
his massive discography, but I can say that if you like the style
he's playing here you can safely go get "Peking Doc".
This gig was filmed on the second day of the festival. He also
played with Gangstajazz the first night.
