The Hear & Now – July 5, 2007

this episode is no longer available

Hiss Golden Messenger, the new San Francisco band led by the Court & Spark’s MC Taylor, performs its psychedelic-folk improv-rock live in the Hear & Now.

Just as he’s about to slip out of town and set a course deep into the heart of traditional American music (in the University of North Carolina’s vaunted Curriculum in Folklore), MC Taylor springs another enticing band upon the San Francisco listening public. The Court & Spark singer-songwriter’s Hiss Golden Messenger is a joint venture with guitarist Scott Hirsch, plus drummer John Hofer and, as often as possible, keyboardists Patrick Main and Matt Cunitz, and Mother Hips guitarist-singer Tim Bluhm. Tonight the band previews its July 6 show at the Cafe du Nord in San Francisco.
