Eugene Chadbourne & Tatsuya Nakatani

When: Tue., April 5, 8 p.m. 2011

Japanese percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani lives in Pennsylvania, from which he tours with the incessant prowl of a rock 'n' roll man. Lucky for the Triangle, that means he stops in these parts often. Nakatani is a champion of extended technique, meaning he bows his cymbals and scrapes his drumheads to get sounds you'd never expect from a kit. But he's not some simple, dexterous freak. Rather, Nakatani conjures his tones like an emotional storyteller, poring over each sound like it's a piece of a ponderous, poetic narrative. Meanwhile, North Carolina's Eugene Chadbourne is one of the original renegades of extended technique for guitar. His music—shot full of psychedelic wit and curious ecstasy—is open to go anywhere. —Grayson Currin
