Chris Forsyth: October 28, 2022 Tubby’s (Kingston, NY)

November 4, 2022

A little over a year ago Chris Forsyth made his first post-Covid appearance backed by Tom Malach (Garcia Peoples), Doug McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback) and Ryan Jewel (everyone). This show was well documented by or own NYCtaper. In his write up he mentioned that the new material emerged feeling fully realized and noted the bands immediate chemistry. Time has proven him right.

With the release of Forsyth’s new album, Evolution Here We Come, we are able to see the full vision Chris had for this ensemble and these songs. The core band of Chris, Tom, Doug and Ryan are augmented by a host of cosmic and psychedelic warriors including Steve Wynn, Bill Nace and Marshall Allen (!!!!) with the final results all massaged into place by Dave Harrington.

On this night the band operated as a power trio. While Tom’s additions were missed, it’s exciting to see how much space Chris is able to cover on his own. The band sounded amazing, taking flight immediately and working through a majority of the new material. The set closer, Robot Energy Machine, featured Charlie Saufley (Heron Oblivion) on guitar and offered nearly 20 minutes of wide eared improvisation to digest.

Chris is currently wrapping up a co-headlining tour with Meg Baird. Hopefully you got a chance to catch a set, but if not we’ve got you covered! I recorded this from the back of the room with my MBHOs and board patch from Tubby’s FOH engineer, Brian. Enjoy!
