Black Crowes, Experience Hendrix, Hoots & Hellmouth, Ian Anderson, EOTO

I'm going to start off the blog for this weekend by taking about this coming Tuesday night, which is the big night for me.  Why?  Because I'm going to see the Black Crowes at The National!  Tix are $35 in advance, $38 at the door.  Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 8.  Get there on time becuase there will be no opener.  The Crowes will be doing 2 full sets, the first acoustic, the second electric.  If you have ever wanted to see the Black Crowes but have not or want to see them again, you better go on Tuesday.  After this tour, the band is taking an indefinite hiatus, which could be for a few years or could be forever.  And they are apparently kicking some ass on this tour too as evidenced by this review from David Fricke in Rolling Stone.  Here they are doing "Black Moon Creeping" a few years ago:

Tonight, Friday, at the Landmark Theater (who finally got a real website), will be the Experience Hendrix show featuring Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Steve Vai, Susan Tedeschi, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Brad Whitford of Aerosmith, Living Colour, Chris Layton of Steve Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Ernie Isley, The Slide Brothers, Mato from Indigenous and many more.  Tix run from $39.50 to $75.  Show starts at 8 PM.  Lots of good seats left for this one.  Here are some highlights from the show a few nights ago in Boston:

I fyou are looking form something to do after the Experience Hendrix show, head to Capital Ale House Downtown for an after-party with Scrapomatic featuring Mike Mattison, lead singer of the Derek Trucks Band.  Show starts at 10 PM and its $10 to get in.

Saturday night, head on up to Ashland Coffee & Tea to check out Hoots & Hellmouth and their roots rock.  Show starts at 8 (no opener), tix are $12 in advance, $17 day of show.  Here they are performing "You and All of Us":

Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull brings his flute and a band to perform at The National on Sunday.  Tix are $37.50 and you can get Reserved Seats or GA Floor.  Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 8.  There doesn't appear to be an opener.  Here is some classic Tull from '78, "Thick as a Brick":

If jamtronica is more your taste, check out EOTO at The Canal Club on Monday night.  Tix are $15 in advance, $18 at the door.  Doors open at 9 and the opener will be Archnemesis.  Here they are live in Minneapolis on 11/5:

Finally, on Wednesday night at Capital Ale House Downtown, Disgrace featuring Al, Chuck and Rob of moe. unplugged.  Tix are $12 in advance, $14 day of show.  Doors open at 7:30, show starts at 8 with "special guests".  I couldn't find any Disgrace videos so here is some moe from earlier this year in Vegas doing Rebubula:

Have a great weekend and I'll see you at the Crowes show!
