Former Low Skies frontman Christopher C. Salveter and band Judson Claiborne continues their July Schubas residency, spilling stories and playing covers that, for one reason or another, were ill-suited to his former band’s swooning dynamics.

Salveter calls the Claiborne moniker a “reclamation of a name given to me by my father,” on his Myspace page, and inhabited it when constructing JC’s self-released debut, Before Midnight Scholar. Of course, if you’re just about to pick up Scholar, don’t latch to tightly to the arrangements. JC are on the cusp of releasing another set, Time And Temperature, while rearranging the old material. For those itching to know what any of it sounds like, forget Low Skies. The devils that haunted him then have vanished from his distinctive howl, and he’s taken to a feel not unlike having Nicolai Dunger on your front porch all summer.

Marvin Tate and Hotel Brotherhood open. Claiborne reappears the following Monday with Mazes and David Daniell.
