Tedeschi/Trucks Band, Toubab Krewe, Southern Belles, Kings of Leon webcast, Late Night Pick: Goldfrapp

Tedeschi/Trucks Band, who put on a great show at Lockn' with their blend of blues/R&B/soul, will be at the Carpenter Theater tonight. Doors open at 7, show starts at 8. If you are going to go, get your tix ASAP because it appears to be nearly sold out. Only the $79 and $35 seats remain if you want to sit with a friend and single seats remain at the $45 level. Don't get in late either. No opener is listed on the TTB site or the Carpenter Theater site. Doesn't mean there won't be an opener but you take your chances. Former, and long time, Allman Brother guitarist Dickey Betts played with the band the other night at The Beacon Theater in NYC. Don't think Dickey will show up tonight but you never know. This is the first time in a long time Dickey has played with any current members of the Allman Brothers Band. Don't know if this will lead to a reconciliation between Dickey and the band, but it's a start. They aren't getting any younger so maybe they'll want to bury the hatchet before they die. Here's some highlights from TTB's set at Lockn' when they were joined by Chris Robinson from Black Crowes and Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead.

Over at Capital Ale House tonight, the West African influenced sound of NC band, Toubab Krewe, will permeate the air. Tix are $15. Music will start with opener Southern Belles somewhere between 10 and 11 so if you are going to TTB and want to make full night of it, head to Capital Ale House after TTB ends. Here's Toubab Krewe playing at radio station WNCW in June:

On the World Wide Web tonight, you can watch Kings of Leon performing live from Dave Letterman's Ed Sullivan Theater in an hour long show starting at 9 PM. You can watch that HERE.

Tonight's Late Night Pick is electo-pop band, Goldfrapp, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight at 12:35 AM on NBC.

More on the rest of the weekend tonight!
