Wish we could have made it: return of Haunted House (Loren Connors, Suzanne Langille, Andrew Burnes and Neel Murgai) last night in lower Manhattan at Sugarcube as part of Northern Spy's five-year anniversary celebration. Those lucky to attend reported "Frankie and Johnny" and "Blue Ghost Blues" were, as expected, monstrous live. Photo by Erstwhile Records' Jon Abbey.

This morning Loren Connors performed with Keiji Haino in a rare transatlantic event. Keiji was at Shibuya in Tokyo, Japan. Loren was at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn at 5:30 a.m. Together they created an improvised soundtrack to Carl Theodor Dreyer's1928 silent classic "The Passion of Joan of Arc" that was being shown to the audience at Shibuya. Thanks to our friends at Northern Spy for posting brief, wondrous taste...
