Sleeping People announce first show in two years

Plus, Steve West leaves 91X

After an extended hiatus, long-running math-rock outfit Sleeping People are returning to the stage. 

On Aug. 8, the band will play a headlining show at Whistle Stop Bar in South Park, marking the first time they'll have performed together in two years. They played a handful of shows in August 2012 but were dormant for three years before that. 

Bassist Kenseth Thibideau tells CityBeat in an email that part of the motivation for playing together is that everyone in the quartet will finally be in the same place at the same time.

"It appears our guitarist Joileah [Maddock] is moving back to San Diego after years of living over in Switzerland, which I think is the main reason we've been on hiatus," he says.  

Members of the band have kept busy with other projects recently. Thibideau and drummer Brandon Relf both play in instrumental post-rock group LIFE, and Maddock has a new band called Gletscher, who'll perform at The Casbah on Aug. 1 with Mr. Tube and the Flying Objects.

Thibideau says Maddock's return to the States could mean more than a temporary end to the band's hiatus.

"Everyone has other music projects," he says, "but we are excited to play Sleeping People shows when we can, which could be more often now!"


Late last week, All Access Music Group announced that longtime 91X DJ Steve West has left his radio-station home of 31 years. West began working at the station in 1983 and hosted the long-running Resurrection Sunday program, which primarily featured music from the new-wave and post-punk era of the 1980s.  West, the last of the remaining original lineup of 91X DJs, has not yet announced his future plans.
