Border Cantos is a timely, new and free exhibit now on view at Crystal Bridges.
Jad will be playing a solo set and a set with local garage rockers The Bloodless Cooties on Friday. On Saturday, there'll be a screening of the Half Japanese documentary, "The Band That Would Be King," along with performances from Jad, David and Mark Jickling, a showing of artwork by the brothers and music from the Cooties and Ezra Lbs.
After the jump, check out a clip from "The Band That Would Be King," featuring a brilliant dissection of how to play guitar from the Fair brothers.
"Some people worry about chords and stuff, and that's alright too, there's all kinds of music in the world," David says. "You might wanna learn some other stuff if you're doing that kind of music. For what I was doing, that was the beauty of it, you could learn it that first day."
"You do need cords in order to plug the guitar in," David says, "but that's pretty much it."
