Loto Ball Show

Chicago, Illinois

Imagine a stage show that combines The Cabinet of Dr. Caliguri and A Clockwork Orange, then put Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds in the orchestra pit with a score by Tuxedomoon and The Residents, and have the ghost of Frank Zappa conduct. That only scratches the weird and wonderful surface of the music of Loto Ball, former frontman for the Phantom Limbs (among many others) and the frenetic focal point of the Post Punk Indie Rock Avant Gypsy Jazz carnival known appropriately as the Loto Ball Show. Prepare to be challenged in every conceivable sonic manner.

You’ll Dig It If You Dig: The Polyphonic Spree as envisioned by The Residents, Public Image Ltd. and Tom Waits. (Brian Baker)
