Marco Benevento Joins The Slip in San Francisco
Brad Barr by Phrazz
Surprise Me Mr. Davis will close the year at San Francisco’s Cafe Du Nord this evening. All five members of the group also appeared at the venue last night with their other projects: Marco Benevento, Nathan Moore and The Slip (Brad Barr, Andrew Barr, Marc Friedman). The Slip—who rarely perform these days—offered a selection of original material, including “Eube,” “Motherwolf,” “Get Me With Fuji,” “Love Ain’t Enough,” “Paper Birds,” “Mudslide,” “Chrysanthemum,” “Dear Milena” and “Reddish Moon.” Benevento returned to the stage near the end of the night to play keyboards
with The Slip on “Soft Machine” and “Weight of Solomon.” The Slip then closed the set with “Children of December.” Marc Friedman and the Barrs are currently working on new albums under both their Slip and Surprise Me Mr. Davis monikers.
