Eugene Chadbourne Plus Kathy Leisen says
The man who played our first show at Bohemian National Home is finally making his Trinosophes debut!! Chadbourne is one of the first American free improvisors, the godfather of the alt-country genre, a human repository of 20th-century song, a maverick master of the guitar and banjo, contact mic pioneer and the greatest living protest-song songwriter.

Chabourne was last seen in Detroit at the Scarab Club during the first Art X Festival, where he introduced New Directions in Appalachian Music, his duo with Tatsuya Nakatani, As perfectly matched as that duo was, there's no Chadbourne show like a solo Chadbourne show, where he can take flight as an outsider-virtuoso musician, trouble-making agitator, homespun folky and comedic showman.

His endless collaborations indicate the range of his musical interests. They include free jazz saxophonists Charles Tyler and Frank Lowe, Don Helms (Hank William's pedal steel player), The Red Clay Ramblers, Carla Bley, John Zorn, Tom Cora, Susan Alcorn, Fred Frith, The Violent Femmes, Camper Van Bethoveen, Peter Brotzmann, Han Bennink, Bob Ostertag, George Lewis, Butthole Surfers, Sun City Girls and numerous Detroiters. Chadbourne is also a former journalist and author of several books, including "I Hate the Man that Runs this Bar" and his latest, "Dreamory."

Detroiter Kathy Leisen (Soft Location, Glass Rock) opens the show with a new solo set of songs for voice and keyboards.
