Friday - 8/10/2012
8:00 PM | All Ages | $37
GALACTIC is a collaborative band with a unique format. It's a stable quintet that plays together with high musicianship. They've been together so long they're telepathic.

In 2011, after more than 20 years of intense gigging and recording, Chris Robinson set off to shape something new, a fresh rock mythology, a breathing kaleidoscopic thing stuffed with chooglin' soul, bedrock boogie and shuffling wisdom birthed in intimate clubs and amongst the tall trees of the Golden State and eventually taken nationwide as the Chris Robinson Brotherhood evolved.

with Special Guest Carly & Eliza
Sunday - 9/23/2012

Stardom was handed to him with Something/Anything?, but Todd Rundgren rejected it. He wanted to explore new musical territory instead, and his adventures led him to form Utopia in 1974. Initially, Utopia was a prog-rock septet featuring three keyboardists, but as the '70s progressed, the group evolved into a shiny mainstream rock quartet. As the group evolved, Rundgren retreated [more...]

MEDESKI MARTIN & WOOD
Wednesday - 10/10/2012
8:00 PM | All Ages | $45
"Wide open" is the phrase John Medeski uses to describe his bandmates' musical sensibilities, the attitude he seeks in himself and the spirit of musical adventure that Medeski Martin & Wood have pursued for two decades. The trio's amalgam of jazz, funk and a million other musical currents and impulses is nearly impossible to classify, which is just how they like it. The trio is made up of Medeski's keyboard excursions, Chris Wood's hard-charging bass lines and Billy Martin's supple, danceable beats. They music has come to resemble a single organism, moving gracefully between genre-defying compositions and expansive improvisation atop a relentless groove. [more...]
