SEMI-Live!

I will not be reviewing any of the shows that I post on this website because I've never been good at analyzing beyond a simple "I like it" or "it's not my thing". All I ever really ask of music is that it brings something to the table. I'll leave the critiquing and dissection to others that are better at it than I.

Thanks always to the bands/artists for the great music and for allowing me to do this.

Deastro – 2007-08-18

September 28th, 2007

The C.A.I.D., Detroit, MI

Chances are, if you follow music in this area you’ve either seen or heard of Deastro. It seems like he just came out of nowhere a few months ago and now appears, well, everywhere. If you’re not familiar with him, Deastro is Randy Chabot, who plays drums, guitar and synthesizer and sings over looped samples he has recorded. You may also know Randy from his other solo projects, Our Brother the Megazord and the acoustic Jr. Jr.. He’s just released a 2 disc, 37 track album split between his Deastro and Our Brother the Megazord projects.

Randy has a busy weekend ahead of him. Early Friday evening will find him opening at the EMU Student Center in Ypsilanti with Iron Fist, Mick Bassett and The Marthas, That’s Him! That’s the Guy! and Canada. Later that same evening he’ll be opening a Blind Pig show in Ann Arbor for Frontier Ruckus and Great Lakes Myth Society. Saturday he’s in Chicago at The Loft with Mas! and then he’s back in Detroit Sunday at the Cass Cafe.
