An important figure in the post-rock and experimental music communities, guitarist, pianist, and vocalist David Grubbs made an especially strong impact on the indie music scene during his ten-year residence in Chicago. Originally hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, Grubbs was a member of Bastro and Squirrel Bait before teaming up with Jim O’Rourke in Gastr del Sol. That band issued a number of critically acclaimed albums in the mid-’90s before O’Rourke split to pursue solo projects and focus on his Drag City boutique label Moikai.
