Mike Gordon @ Plan 9 & Toad's Today

Mike Gordon, bassist and occassional singer formerly (and futurely?) of Phish will be doing an in-store concert at Plan 9 today at 1 PM for free and then playing at Toad's Place tonight. Doors open at Toad's at 8 PM and tix are $20. The Bridge will be opening.

On guitar for Mike's band is Scott Murawski, from Max Creek and most famous for melting my roommate's face in college. In the mid-80's there were only three jam bands: The Grateful Dead, The Radiators and in the Northeast, Max Creek. Max Creek played at my college's All College Day end of spring semester celebration in 1988. They immediately became Mark's favorite band and he was often heard to exclaim after a particularly hot Scottie solo, "Dude, Scottie is totally melting my face!" So if you go to either show today, be sure to wear face protection, to prevent your face from being melted.

On a non-related note, I found this on YouTube last night and thought it was pretty damn cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnhKPw2NXIw. Its called Blondie vs. The Doors - Rapture Riders.

See you at Plan 9 today.
