imo the duo and the slip are the most overated bands on the scene. i have seen them both and was let down at both shows. the duo when its just the 2 of them is terrible, and even with gordo at 10klf wasnt that great. as for the slip they are a bad pop band that has somehow been embraced by the jam community. they dont even fucking jam.

I agree with hopefulphan. Have given them both a chance can come up with a reason to keep seeing them... maybe I'll hit up a show being that I live on Sullivan St. on the off chance that Trey or Mike shows up.

Well.......i'm gunna have to disagree completely...the slip are some of the most talented musicians on the jam circuit today....if you play music you can truely respect what andrew is doin on the kit, brad on his guitar and the keys and marc on bass and guit....I will say that the style of music that the slip play today is very different then their past jazz/jam roots...but they still put on a great show

Stanley Maxwell

Stanley Maxwell will be performing one set at Sullivan Hall (formerly the Lion's Den) on Saturday January 26 at 6:30pm.

Stanley Maxwell's song "Mousetrap" won "Best Jazz Song" in the 7th Annual

Independent Music Awards last month, when Marco Benevento won "Best Live

Performance Album" for "Live At Tonic".

The same Stanley Maxwell song also won Relix Magazine's November 2007 "JamOff" contest for unsigned artists, and was be featured on the November Relix CD sampler.

The show with Billy Martin and G Calvin Weston will be off the hook,

I can only imagine, being in California.

Hopefully some of you East Coast jambase freaks will let us know how it all

goes down.
