Music therapy: Gregg Turner
Gregg Turner, a founder back in the ’70s of the Los Angeles punk group Angry Samoans, says he suffers from SDD — “songwriter’s delusional disorder.” To relieve his pain, Turner is undertaking his second solo- recording project in three years. On Saturday, Jan. 24, he performs at Phil Space in order to bolster active Kickstarter campaign to help fund the new album. Turner’s past work seems to indicate that he believes laughter to be the best medicine, and to medicate himself and the audience, he promises to perform humor-infused songs like “I Lost My Baby to the Guy at Bobcat Bite” as well as newer compositions from the upcoming album. The live portion of the fundraiser begins at 7 p.m. at the gallery (1410 Second St., 505- 983- 7945). There is no admission charge, though donations will be electronically facilitated for the Kickstarter campaign, which closes on Feb. 1. — L.B.
