Friday night there are a couple shows to hit, post-Folk Fest. If you want to keep the world music thing going, head to The Camel for Bio Ritmo, one of the premier salsa bands. This is their first show back on Richmond since their European tour. Doors will open at 9, and there is no opener listed so expect Bio Ritmo to come on around 10. It's $10 to get in, but just $5 if you are a student or you are wearing a Folk Fest sticker (which you get by dropping a donation in the bucket at the Folk Fest). They are promising a special guest too, and with a lot of talent at the Folk Fest, you may see something special. Here's a recent video of the band:
If you've had enough world music after the Folk Fest Friday night and are in the mood for some loud electric guitars, head over to Wonderland for The Recently Deceased with Reverend D-Ray and the Shockers opening. The Recently Deceased play self-described Psycho Rock & Roll or psychobilly/punk. Here's their video for their song "Back Again". Lots of blood and gore in this one as the lead singer, with the greatest mutton chops ever, takes revenge upon his girlfriend's killers:
And for those moments when you are home this weekend, the Austin City Limits fest has a killer lineup on their free webcast. You can watch it HERE and here's the schedule. All times are Central Time.
In a completely different direction, there will be a DJ set by Jason Hann, the percussionist and vocalist of String Cheese Incident and EOTO as he goes under the name of Prophet Massive at The Camel. Other artists playing will be Elliott Ness w/Rico from Silo Effect, Galaxy Dynamite! and Flavor Project with video by Videometry. Doors open at 8 and it's $10 to get in.
Here's your bonus video. The Doors doing "The Soft Parade". YOU CANNOT PETITION THE LORD WITH PRAYER!
See you at the Folk Fest on Saturday!
