Today we look back at Reconnaissance Fly’s recent performance at DUENDE on Oakland. DUENDE is a venue and tapas restaurant/bar that has been quite supportive of the new music community (I have been remiss in writing reviews for some of the other shows I have seen there), and also has delicious food and wine.
The patatas bravas are simple but delicious. The Tempranillo was quite nice as well.
The performance itself was fun. We had a good audience, mostly filled with familiar faces but that is always welcome. And we premiered a couple of new pieces, Spirograph by Polly Moller and Undeciphered by Tim Walters, which featured text in the undeciphered Linear A script (go look it up). Here are some views from the show.

Yes, I deliberately matched the color of the Nord.
Rounding out the band as always were Rich Lesnik on reeds and Larry the O on drums.
We are now busy working in more detail on those pieces and at least one more new one for our next show at the Makeout Room in San Francisco in early May.
