  • Chilly Gonzalez hosts the “Piano Talk Show” at Brooklyn’s Bell House

    Though not many people may be familiar with Chilly Gonzalez, there is no doubt you’ve heard his work.  He is the Grammy-nominated producer behind Feist’s The Reminder, as well as her most recent album Metals.  His tune, “Never Stop,” became ubiquitous with the iPad commercials.

    Born Jason Charles Beck, Gonzalez is a musical genius that transitions between melancholic piano virtuoso to playful comic lyricist.  This was beautifully displayed on Friday night at the Bell House in Brooklyn.  With accompaniment from the string section named Fuck Lucks, Gonzalez was part musical lecturer and hilarious host dressed in a satin robe and slippers.  First, there was a discussion about major and minor keys that stemmed from his use of the Flat E minor.   He compared the major keys to the right wing and the status quo, while the minor end coincidentally embraced by the minorities.  Gonzalez played well known tunes, such as “Happy Birthday” and “Frère Jacques” in minor keys to demonstrate the somber reversal of fortune in a simple change of scale.

    From major and minor, Gonzalez shifted gears to the rap genre and how it taught him about ambition.  He sang “Beans” as a comic play on the ghetto fabulous lifestyle of excess.  Rapping sick lyrics like, “And when the beans talk, I hear the echo / Speaking to me in the voice of Mr. Gordon Gekko.” Gonzalez continued his musical education covering music counts from 4/4 to 6/8, identifying the latter count sequence as “kinda rapey”.  Throughout his musical lessons, he had members of the audience join him at his piano, playing side by side.

    Given the choice of another long drawn out somber piano piece or a story on how he worked with Drake, the audience chose Drake.  Drake had sampled Gonzalez’s work in “Outro” for his So Far Gone Mixtape without giving Chilly his due.  Needless to say, Gonzalez wrote a reactionary song, “The Grudge” to cope with the episode, which he never shared with Drake.  But as fate would have it, the fellow Canadian had coincidentally bought a condo in the same building as Gonzalez’s father.  Drake’s people arranged a meeting for the two and a face to face collaboration was realized when they performed together at the 2011 Juno Awards.  No bad blood after all.

    The show closed with Gonzalez atop the piano playing tunes with his feet, which somehow is not surprising from such a musical genius.  Chilly Gonzalez is releasing Solo Piano II later this year via Arts & Crafts.  Let the education continue.

    Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job @ The Vic Theater, January 24, 2009

    I told my friends after the show that I probably wouldn’t wait by the White Stripes’ tour van in hopes to get in a few words with Jack or Meg. Not a lie, all three times I haven’t. However, the healthy rum buzz blended mostly with the long lasting high from the brilliant Tim and Eric show made it impossible not to wait in single-degree weather. Once twenty people had gathered we eventually left, but still, right?

    Tim and Eric

    By the time I entered, the sold out crowd was completely consumed in the circus of constant hilarity, and while the overall bizarreness quickly wore off, the amazement lasted throughout. I can let the YouTube collages do most of the talking, but here are some highlights.

    Tim and Eric posterJohn C. Reilly’s entrance, unbeknownst to a crowd of screaming affection, was the ultimate. Ten-plus minutes in the Steve Brule character that climaxed when he awkwardly danced and played with a hot audience member’s titties says it all. On several instances Brule/Reilly used the D-word to refer to the audience: Dingbat, Dingus, and Ding-Turkey probably made the mix. Douggpound DJ’d the event and had a funny musical dialogue when Reilly explained how to fake like you know the lyrics to a song to impress the girl next to you. BIG NEWS: New York, LA, and Ft. Lauderdale will NOT get John C. Reilly, sorry.

    Tim and Eric dr steve“I Sit Down When I Pee” was one of the classics from a handful of songs. The Beaver Boys’ have grown on me in some of the newer episodes, and with the aid of shrimp and white wine their bit went well. Spaghett got in a few spooks and provided a funny backdrop for Eric’s environmental advice.

    The 4th season, beginning Feb 8th, god bless them, promises to be amazing. The clips shown introduced some of the best commercials; get ready for one involving slashing prices.

    One thought came to mind. I didn’t see the Simpson movie in theaters with an audience, which was better than any shows from the last eight seasons or so, but I do remember that a slight complaint/interesting-note my brother made was the oddity in watching a Simpsons episode with a crowd. This, on the other hand, was stunning. The audience enhanced watching the show for sure, didn’t miss a beat, and brought a lot of joy to me knowing that such a strong following exists.

    Tim and Eric 2I have still never seen a stand-up comedy show, and feel that it would be fairly weird. This was absolutely nuts and belongs in its on category. In terms of pure entertainment, this tops Superbad, and was definitely one of the best events I’ve ever been to. Afterwards David Liebe Hart (works with a puppet) went through the audience selling CDs and chatted with fans. He told me that before this he was affiliated with a religious public access television program; perhaps the best evidence I can give you to start/continue to watch the best show on television.

    Awesome Show, Great Job (February 8th, don’t forget!)

    Photos of Tim and Eric Awesome Show:
