Sunwatchers & Eugene Chadbourne: May 10, 2019 Nublu Classic

June 4, 2019

Last month, Sunwatchers and Eugene Chadbourne played Nublu Classic in belated support of 3 Characters, their collaborative double-LP of Minutemen and Doug Sahm covers. The album was released in November, but perhaps due to scheduling they didn’t get the properly inaugurate it into the world until May. Last time we got to see Sunwatchers and Doc Chad play live, they did a trio of Chuck Berry tunes (he had recently passed) plus covers of songs by Sonny Rollins, Love, and John Lee Hooker. This time it’s all Minutemen and Doug Sahm songs, with a writing assist from Albert Alyer on the mashup “Joe McCarthy’s Ghost(s).” Perhaps it’s from the rigors of recording, or a whole lot of practice, but they’ve got these songs down tight. The only one not recorded for the album (and maybe the highlight of this set) is their delightful take on “Stoned Faces Don’t Lie,” a Doug Sahm number from way back with the Sir Douglas Quintet. It’s a shame that one didn’t make it onto the album, but better maybe that it’s just incentive for Sunwatchers and Eugene Chadbourne to ride again!

Speaking of Sunwatchers, grab tickets for their upcoming Rocks Off Cruise gig with Garcia Peoples. Yes, that’s Sunwatchers and Garcia Peoples on a boat. June 15th. Go for it.
