Some good stuff this weekend. Yours truly is going to hit up Eddie from Ohio, playing at the Somerville Theater. They play a great rock/folk mix. Nobody as small as lead singer Julie should have a voice as big as she does, she can fill a stadium without a mike. Great tunes, great lyrics, good fun.
You can Experience Hendrix at the Orpheum, Sunday at 8PM. A pretty astounding lineup will be there. According to the Experience Hendrix site, the lineup features “Billy Cox of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band Of Gypsys, Steve Vai, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Brad Whitford of Aerosmith, Living Colour, Chris Layton of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Ernie Isley, Mato Nanji of Indigenous, Susan Tedeschi, and The Slide Brothers”. Holy cow. That’s a lineup.
If you are into modern classical music, or things experimental, Kronos Quartet will be playing at Northeastern. If you think you know what a classical string quartet sounds like and it’s boring, you’re wrong. These guys are amazing.
For some happy-sounding ska, kind of in the vein of Pepper, then check out Bedouin Sound Clash at the Middle East in Cambridge. Musician and DJ Bonobo will be the Paradise on Sunday night, turning out some tasty club music.
Please drive safely, and as always, information on all this and more can be found at boston music this weekend.
