Jammin’ the Jammers
MESS (Media Ecology Soul Sessions) presents Jammin’ the Jammers. What does this even mean? Well, after “tumultuously tweaking experimentation” by the Rondo Hatton Experience, a panel of arty know-it-alls, including “agitprop archaeologist Gerry Fialka and confirmed hippie writer Michael Simmons,” discuss Lenny Bruce, organist Korla Pandit, Ernie Kovacs, Lord Buckley, John Cage and Carol Channing. All true except for the last one. The point? “To probe how these visionaries elevated self-realization to uncover the ambiguity and complexity of consumerism culture.” And here you were, thinking they were all entertainers. At least the insanely suave Reverend Dan of KXLU’s Music for Nimrods will be there to keep the rock & roll vibe alive. Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd., Venice; Thurs., April 3, 7 p.m.; $7 donation, no one turned away for pretending not to have the dough. (310) 822-3006. Thu., April 3, 7 p.m., 2008
