get your car outta that gear!


wow. the Clash Tribute benefit last night at The Triple Rock was stellar!

all bands, in true Joe Strummer fashion, knocked the crowd out!

much like last year, everyone was having a blast. the place wasn't too smoky and there seemed to be good vibes all around all night.

big ups to John Beggs and John Sandbo who threw down on the 1,2,3 and 4's in between sets mashing up the punk and reggae dub plate stylee!

you can still buy the awesome poster Aesthetic Apparatus made for the benefit(whilst supplies last!).

i pretty much forgot the words to "Magnificent Seven" so mumbled through and repeated over and over the ones i DID remember. seemed to work for most..

i had a great time putting together the band for our part of the evening. it is something i have always wanted to do. like in the old jazz drummer/bandleader tradition(Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Buddy Rich Big Band, Elvin Jones' Jazz Machine) of assembling musicians for the moment, with little rehearsal and getting a spontaneous performance and collaboration.

when the players are as good as this bunch i think it works best to play that way.

at least their playing detracted from my boffing the words. :)

props to Matt Potts, Yub Yu, Joe Munster, Kurt Froelich, Mike Brady and Paul Harding!
