Description

Cello Joe is a dude in flip flops and a fedora, with a mic, a loop pedal and, of course, a cello. He combines these three instruments to make some pretty weird music-think hip-hop cello with hippy-dippy lyrics about the harmfulness of materialism, luxury cars and television. It's fascinating to watch him play. He's obviously been playing cello for a long time, as he confidently makes the instrument sing and plunk while he lays down some beatbox beats and loops it all together. Then to top it off he sings and harmonizes with himself. And he rides his bike all over the Bay Area as one-man band. What else could one want? Also, this show is his new CD release party.
