Thintap Woodsap (experimental psych-pop)
Afuche (Latin free jazz from Brooklyn)
The press calls Thintap Woodsap "frighteningly talented" (Boston's Weekly Dig), but he isn't so frightening anymore. See, he will have eaten only bananas and water for a week by the time you see him and he will have lots of paper and crayons and other fun activities for you to do. He'd bring a durian for fun and sniffing but the last time he did that, the authorities ripped out the floor of the studio where he was recording thinking there was a gas leak.
So, now for the credentials and name dropping in one long, confusing sentence: Thintap's compositions and improvisations range from very complex, mammoth pieces for orchestra to neo-vaudeville musicals, noise rock operas, long term collaborations with the thaumaturgical Stormy Laughter, and with the utterly original dancer, Zack Fuller, percussionists Tatsuya Nakatani, Will Redman, and Jeff Arnal, and violinist Katt Hernandez, and reed players John Dierker and John Dikeman to intimate songs that he sings and plays on the piano and
accordion all by himself, which you will hear this evening. He has also enjoyed many lentil dinners with Joe Maneri and if you want to do some snooping, he also has the name, "Jonathan Vincent". He is a completely original and nutritious protein without any gimmicks or fashionably processed sarcasm. Missing him in your lifetime will really dissapoint your children.
