Graveyard, No BS Brass Band, People's Blues of Richmond

For any of you still on the fence about going to see Jane's Addiction at the National on Friday, March 9, Perry Farrell is promising it will be an orgy.  Perry says, “We chose to play as many of the great theatres that we could find because we wanted to immerse the audience in a unique experience unlike any they have ever seen at a rock show,” Farrell said. “Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights. We like orgies, and hope you do too.”  Tix go on sale Saturday at 10 AM on The National web site and Ticketmaster.

As for this week's shows, a couple of local bands kick things off on Thursday night.  No BS! Brass Band will be at Balliceaux.  Show starts at 10 PM and is FREE!  While they were up in NYC for NYE, they played an impromptu show in Union Square Park.  Here's a taste:




Over at The Republic on Thursday night, People's Blues of Richmond will rock out.  Show starts at 10 PM and is FREE!  Here's the band doing a Led Zep medley at The Camel on 12/26/11:



On Tuesday night, some hard classic rock in the vein of Black Sabbath or Cream when Graveyard (all the way from Sweden!) will be at Strange Matter.  Also on the bill is Radio Moscow and Ancient Wisdom.  Doors open at 8 and Ancient VVisdom kicks things off at 9.  Presale tix sold out so get there early and pay your $12 at the door and this is an 18 years and up show.  Here's a little sampler of their latest album, Hisingen Blues:



That's about it for this week.  Here's my random video of the week, Bruce Springsteen with the Seeger Sessions Band doing "John Henry":



Have a great weekend!
