Bill Rieflin will be on double duty next week when he appears at the Triple Door on April 14 and 15. The multi-instrumentalist, who boasts a wide-ranging resume (Ministry, R.E.M., Nine Inch Nails, Robyn Hitchcock), will headline both shows with his improvisational group Slow Music, which also includes legendary English guitarist Robert Fripp, as well as playing in the evening’s opening act, the Humans, which features Fripp’s wife, English singer/actress Toyah Wilcox.

“Believe me, it’s not my idea,” Rieflin said of the double billing. It all began when Rieflin was recently out dining in London with Fripp, Wilcox, R.E.M.’s Peter Buck (another Slow Music member), and Young Fresh Fellows/R.E.M. guitarist Scott McCaughey. “We were all having a very fun dinner, drinking lots of bubbling solutions,” Rieflin recalled. “And someone began to reminisce — ‘Ah, Slow Music, that was fun, wasn’t it?’ And I won’t say who, but someone else said, ‘Let’s do it again! Let’s do a Slow Music show.’ And Toyah pipes up, ‘Yeah! And the Humans will open!’
