15 April 2017 (Bob Bucko Jr. Live!)

HEAR Bob Bucko Jr. Live on WTC HERE!

What’s This Called? is very excited to bring you a return LIVE engagement with Dubuque Iowa’s free guitar virtuoso Bob Bucko Jr! Bob mines the territory of ’80 psych/country-punk such as Meat Puppets and Giant Sand, infuses it with the out jazz of Sonny Sharrock and Derek Bailey, and weaponizes it further with an arsenal of noise music pedal tricks and contemporary drone technique. If this sounds schizoid, it isn’t, as BBJR is a smooth player who hypnotically ensnares the listener with every note.
