Chris Forsyth
Chris Forsyth's long-awaited return to the west coast will include a two set performance at Spoke Bicycle Cafe in Frogtown, Los Angeles with Doug McCombs and Ryan Jewell.

Doors 6:00pm
Music 7:30pm

Over the past decade or so, Chris Forsyth has produced a series of perennially year-end list haunting studio albums of expansive art-rock, from 2013s Solar Motel to 2019s All Time Present, in the process becoming one of the leading lights of the so-called indie jam scene, musicians combining omnivorous influences with post-Dead sprawl.

These critically lauded albums have established Forsyth as one of todays most unique and acclaimed guitar player/composers - a forward thinking classicist synthesizing cinematic expansiveness with a pithy lyricism and rhythmic directness that makes even his 20-minute workouts feel as clear, direct, and memorable as a 4-minute song.

But the studio records are just the tip of the iceberg.

You see, in a live setting Forsyths music is never really finished.

He hasnt had a fixed band in years and plays with a rotating cast of characters.  Regulars in Forsyths bands have included bassists Doug McCombs (Tortoise) and Peter Kerlin (Sunwatchers), and drummer Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker, too many others to mention), among others - basically, whoever is available for the given gig or tour.

These are not groups that rehearse, exactly. Operating more like a jazz band, Forsyth and his players treat the songs as frameworks that remain identifieable but morph based on whos playing them, like weather to a landscape.
