5 Live Music Musts: Friday, October 11th
Friday, October 11, 2013
The mighty Pearl Jam arrives Tuesday 10/15 and Wednesday 10/16 at the DCU Center. The band is in town on the day of their new album, “Lightening Bolt,” is released. Take a listen – it’s currently streaming free on ITunes. It’s so hot you can expect the band to melt the ice under the stage! Tuesday’s show is sold out, a few tickets remain for Wednesday – get them soon as this show will sell out. Tickets are a bit pricey - $92 - but it’s freakin’ Pearl Jam! Look for a review next week right here on GoLocalWorcester.
There’s a great show tomorrow (10/12) at Chan’s down the road in Woonsocket, RI. Award winning guitar great Coco Montoya returns to Chan’s and he’s already sold out the early show. The acclaimed guitarist plays lefty - his style has been compared to Albert King and Jimi Hendrix. There are still tickets remaining for the late show (10PM) but be sure to get them online soon. No need to order egg rolls in advance – there should be plenty at Chan’s on Saturday night. Tickets are $20 – early show at 8PM, late show at 10PM.
Also Saturday night, classic rock fans will want to head to the Wang Theater in Boston for a special show from Ian Anderson. The Jethro Tull frontman is presenting Thick as a Brick in its entirety. The tour features the first live performance of the legendary album since 1972. Tickets are still available starting at $38. Show is at 8PM.
Michael Feinstein Trio
For a slightly slower pace, the Great American Songbook will be front and center Saturday night at the Hanover Theater where the Michael Feinstein Trio performs. Feinstein has done a lot of work keeping the “Songbook” alive in recent years, and he’s gained a reputation as a prominent interpreter of the classics. See why at the Hanover at 8PM - tickets start at $38.
Finally, there’s a cool “Skatinee” show at The Raven on Sunday afternoon. It’s a Ska fest featuring a number of great local acts including Llama Tsunami, The Pandemics, Soundoff, Sweet Babylon and The Causeway Bandits. The all-ages event begins at Noon on Sunday.
