Just got this email update from Matt Cunitz (of Vintage Keyboard Repair):
I thought you (and your blog readers) might be interested to know that I will be playing my Orchestron model D live from the studios of KPFA this Thursday, July 22nd at 10pm on Derk Richardson’s “The Hear & Now program.” I am sure I will employ the use of many of the new and reissue Orchestron discs I’ve got from you and Robert. The entire show will also be streaming online at www.kpfa.org and will also be available via their online archive for at least a couple weeks afterward.
The occasion for this performance is to celebrate and promote the new Mushroom album “Naked, Stoned, & Stabbed” which just came out on 4 Zero Records / Potato Family records which also features Orchestron on several tracks….
The following evening (Friday 7/23), I will have the Orchestron out on stage at the Makeout Room in San Francisco (early showtime at 7:30!) and then we’ll be in Berkeley the night after that (Saturday 7/24) at the Starry Plough – again with the Orchestron and several other keyboard oddities.
As you know, I absolutely love my Orchestrons as well as all the the new discs, and I try to use them on as many sessions as I can! Most of the recent albums I have used the NEW discs on are not available quite yet, however I have posted a fairly detailed discography which I update regularly at www.myspace.com/mattcunitz – you can click on the “Discography blog” to find out about the many other albums I have been lucky enough to get to play Orchestron on.
