Event Details

Join Madrone Art Bar for Rock The Spot, a free weekly showcase.

September 10, 2014 Lineup:

  • Pachuco Cadaver  – Beefheart musical tribute – horn heavy ensemble featuring players from several historic SF Bay Area bands including Dead Kennedys, Polkacide, and Extra-Action Marching Band.
  • Duckmandu – Over the top punk rock accordion and vocals from the East Bay
  • Kitten on the Keys – Kitten plays her favorite rock and punk tunes with a cabaret girly edge

Pachuco Cadaver is dedicated to paying tribute to the musical genius of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.

They say, “we are not a Beefheart cover band; nobody could realistically be expected to replicate the sound and texture of the Magic Band except the Magic Band, so we have created a horn-heavy ensemble with a decidedly unique way of arranging some classic Beefheart tunes, as if someone like Maceo Parker had been in charge.”

Creating new arrangements and instrumentation is a way to introduce the Magic Band and Captain Beefheart to a new generation of live music fans who may not ever have heard of them.
