MEMORIAL WEEKEND OPPORTUNITIES!!!
May 26 Gaelic Storm - ALMOST SOLD OUT - GET YOUR TICKETS NOW! Since its inception nearly ten years ago, Gaelic Storm continue to broaden the musical horizons of the Celtic music genre by creating compelling originals and fresh arrangements steeped in Irish traditional melody and acoustic instrumentation combined with their unique blend of world rhythms. Released on July 25, 2006, the band's latest album Bring Yer Wellies (Lost Again Records) debuted at #2 on the Billboard World Chart.
Channeling the rowdy communal feel of an Irish pub on raucous sing-alongs, driving pipe sets and spirited fiddle tunes, the band's sixth studio album was recorded in a one-month fury in April 2006 at The Zone recording studio in Austin Texas.
Band Website Doors 8pm · Show 9pm · tickets $18 adv; $20 door
May 28 EOTO (featuring Michael Travis & Jason Hann of String Cheese Incident) EOTO is a new, 100% improvised, live-looping project featuring Jason Hann and Michael Travis (percussionist and drummer from the band The String Cheese Incident). Drawing from the ethos of some of the great DJ's and computer artists of the world, they use cutting edge live recording technology to create truly original and melodic dance music in the moment, with the undeniable power of live drums.
The music is all created on the spot, looped, then mixed and remixed live to create an ever evolving musical experience. Since the project is 100% improvised, every night promises to be a unique dance experience. Hann and Travis play different roles in this band than in SCI. Jason plays the drum kit, percussion and sampler, while Michael is in charge of the tonal elements, playing bass, guitar, and keyboards, and hand percussion and live mixing.
