EOTO, Wilco, Jello Biafra, DJ Williams Projekt

EOTO featuring Jason Hann and Michael Travis (percussionist & drummer) from String Cheese Incident in a live 100% improvised electronica project comes to the Hat Factory on Saturday night. Doors open at 9, show starts at 10, tix are $15 in advance, $18 day of show. Here you can check out an entire show they did with Michael Kang (multi-instrumentalis from SCI) in 2008 at the Trinumeral Festival. For some reason this reminds me of the Nerds band from the talent show in "Revenge of the Nerds":

Monday night, Wilco comes to The National. The show is SOLD OUT but if any tix do appear they'll be $35. Doors open at 7, show starts at 8. No opener is listed on The National site or Wilco's site so get there early so you don't miss anything. You know you're good when you sell out the National and have a beer named after your band. Here they are doing "Impossible Germany" from Farm Aid last year:

On Tuesday, DJ Williams Projekt has their regular gig at Cafe Diem. The gig starts at 9:30 PM.

Wednesday night, Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys comes to the Canal Club with his band, The Guantanamo School of Medicine. Tix are $10 in advance, $13 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 and there will be three openers, Landmines, Worn In Red and The Ladies. Here's the band performing "Holiday In Cambodia" last year:

Now its time for the good, the bad and the ugly.

First the good. This is Derek Trucks when he was 13 years old (!) playing Layla and jamming when he opened up for the Allman Brothers on July 4, 1993. Derek was playing better at 13 than most guys will their entire lives.

Now for the bad & the ugly all rolled up into one. I had to look at the title of this to even figure out what song they were trying to play. I love when the roadie comes out and looks at the amp as if that is what's wrong with this. I wonder why no one is watching them play?

I hope that video sent you on your way to having a great weekend!
