Jherek Bischoff hijacked a string quartet made of local musicians recruited to perform with Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra of which Bischoff is the bassist. Whatever. It worked brilliantly. He lead them through a short set of mostly instrumental songs made up of original compositions from his new album released last month, Composed. Bischoff pulled off a command performance with his back often to the audience, in order to orchestrate the arrangements with his new recruits. At one point, he traded his guitar for ukelele and plucked the shit out of it. The music was dynamic, fluid and utterly captivating. Bischoff has a somewhat understated presence onstage until he starts strumming and then he vibrates like an instrument himself.
