The Janet Feder Trio, Tuesday, December 7, at the Bug Performance and Media Art Center, inaugurates a regular series, "The Bug Unplugged," with an evening of original acoustic music. The occasion also marks the trio's first concert, but the players are well-known in these parts for their highly listenable experimentation. Feder's compositions for prepared guitar and dobro can range from melodic to minimal to maze-like, and they always reward a close listen. Reedist Mark Harris, who plays with Hamster Theatre, the Boulder Creative Music Ensemble, Random Axe, Thinking Plague and others, accompanies on bass clarinet. Percussionist Mark Raynes has collaborated with the likes of Roshambo, Mark Sloniker and Tony Furtado. Arnie Swenson, former Big Foot Torso vocalist and guitarist, opens the show with new music of his own. -- Thomas Peake
