Damnably at 8 is a series of concerts celebrating our 8th birthday with some exclusives & debuts from our favourite acts.
As part of Damnably’s 8th birthday celebration’s we bring you Chris Brokaw live at London’s Vortex Jazz Club, for a solo electric guitar set encompassing recent works. Some of you might recall that Chris played our 2nd gig back in 2007.
Chris Brokaw is a drummer, guitarist, singer/songwriter and a founding member of two of the most influential US post-punk bands: Come (Matador) & Codeine (Sub Pop).
He’s also played in an incredible number of acts, including GG ALLIN, The New Year, The Thurston Moore Band, to name a few. Chris has long been the tour buddy of choice for the likes of Nirvana, The Pixies, Mono, Dinosaur Jr and Shellac.
In 2012 Chris released ‘Gambler’s Ecstasy’, a rock solo album five years in the making to outstanding reviews.
Damnably also released the critically acclaimed ‘The Angel’s Message To Me’ & ‘Boarder’s Door’ from Chris and Geoff Farina (Karate).
Recent releases include ‘Mass. Grave’ as part of Martha’s Vineyard Ferries, with Elisha Wiesner (Kahoots) and Bob Weston (Shellac, Volcano Suns, Mission of Burma) and a soundtrack album to the film ‘Now, Forager’.
Equally at home in the realms of Rock and Experimental music, Chris Brokaw is an enigma and a joy to watch perform live.
