Live show review on AtlantaMusicScene.com
Roger Manning / Lawn Chair Frontier
April 7th, 1998
New York's legendary Roger Manning played at Atlanta's legendary
Dottie's recently. Roger is well known for his one man folk/punk
shows. The words to his songs are more poem-stories than lyrics.
With just a guitar (or a bass) and some vocals, this guy puts on a
more energetic show than most bands I've seen. If that ain't
good enough for ya', he used to be on SST, and Greg Ginn ate spaghetti
at his house one time. So check him out next time he comes to town!
As for Lawn Chair Frontier, I'm in that band, so I can't review us
objectively. We had some of the jazz guys from Democracy of
Chaos onstage with us, and we did our spontaneous, improv
rock thing. I had a good time anyways...
