Take the name of this Alan and Richard Bishop tourââThe Brothers Unconnectedââseriously. The two erstwhile Sun City Girls lost their drummer and adopted brother, Charles Gocher Jr., to cancer early last year, putting an end to the bizarre trioâs quarter century in the varied and muddy trenches of experimental sound. Tonight, in his honor, the Bishops will screen Gocherâs The Handsome Stranger, a video involving both a dangling, antlered skull and a sex-ed-type tour of a womanâs anatomy, before dipping into SSCâs (and specifically Gocherâs) voluminous back catalog. Those concerned that this tour will have adverse effects on the brothers Bishop and their infamous sense of humor can relax: Recent shows have apparently featured the ceremonialâor, uh, realâblowing of Gocherâs ashes into the crowd.
