I have to be honest. Moving to Chicago, from baltimore, there was
more of scene back in bmore for live jungle/breakbeat than here in
chicago. CRAZEEE, right?

there's plenty of house clubs, techno loft parties, jazz, freejazz, blues,
jam band, cover band, rock/indie/emo out there but hardly any places
that actually book...let alone PUSH live electro-acoustic jungle.

sometimes feels like i'm in the wrong place...perhaps nyc, seattle, or
london would be better. and it's not that chicago isn't receptive to new
things or music like this (my bands have done well for themselves after
much pushing, promoting, and word of mouth), but the city is just so
large that when you're a small fish in the proverbial big pond...it takes
some serious time, patience, and determination to get a few cats to
turn their heads.

this is not a new scene, live jungle...i've heard of legendary jam sessions
in nyc at izzy's back around the turn of the millenium. I'm well versed with landmark drummers such as Johnny Rabb (super hero action figures & author of the incredible live dnb/jungle instruction book for drumset-nashville), jojo meyer (screaming headless torsos/izzy's-nyc), joe tomino (birth/dub trio-nyc), mike lowry (big in japan/lake trout-baltimore); red snapper, roni size, squarepusher, london elektricity (england), yuval gabay (soul coughing/US)...
...and smaller bands (that kickass) such as:::kj sawka (seattle), color and talea (boston), antizario (ontario), spizm, trioizm, steps(74), 1000 vertical feet, & 7 league boots (chicago), astroid power-up, and a few others i'm sure I'm forgetting.

This thread is for the posting of other live jungle/dnb/breakbeat/junglebop/glitch bands that you know of or have heard about. If it's your own, that's all good! But i want to hear about what you're hearing about. links are appreciated...
