Hadn’t seen the Benevento Russo Duo since the GRAB run with Gordo & Trey this summer, and it was good to see just the two of them again, locked in, grinning, and wicked noisy. They filmed the show for a potential DVD release, but the crowd seemed a tad too laid back, they kept the set short and Joe looked exhausted by the end. Some great way-out improv though, and a killer “Becky” that went surprising places, including a section that sounded like Danny Elfman was sitting in, which led into a heavy jungle techno groove.

For your listening pleasure, a Becky>Mephisto from a year ago. Takes about two minutes to really kick in.
