Fresh New Music


 


Recommended: Steely Dane at the Barrymore

Some ideas are so crazy you don't dare try them. Others are so crazy you HAVE to just go for it.

If you're familiar with the band Steely Dan, and know anything about playing music, you might realize that their tunes are not the easiest to cover. So why in the world did Madison keyboard luminaries Dave Adler and Dave Stoler think it would be a good plan to get a wide variety of jazz and rock players together to give it a try? It seems like it would have been unlikely that any one would have taken them up on it. But for some reason they did, and it worked!

Their  fourth show is this Saturday night at the Barrymore.  Obviously it's worked three previous times, so this time ought to be four times as good!

Steely Dane Plays For Lovers "Make Tonight A Wonderful Thing"
8:00pm Tickets $15 in advance


The show features a very large band, with about 14 on stage at a time; lots of rotating, with two different drummers, three guitarists, two bass players, two keyboards, a horn section, backup singers, and 8 different lead singers.

If you go, you'll be entertained by members of The Gomers, Tony Castaneda Latin Jazz Sextet, The Clyde Stubblefield Band, The Obros, Phat Phunktion, Gibralter Rockers, Chick Singer, Kyle Henderson, The New Breed Jazz Quintet, the Black N Blue All Stars, Honor Among Thieves, Jim Schwall Band, and Adam Isaac and the People. Freedy Johnston will be there as well!

You'll also be able to snag some great swag at affordable prices: sweet Steely Dane tshirts, and merch from all the bands that all the musicians are in will be available.

And our buddy Andy Wallman from our beloved Gomers says there will be specials on Jose Cuervo shots. So even if you're not paying that much attention you're likely to have a great time!

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Free downloads: The Bayonets
If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

It's not *that* kind of pool party! ~ Stevi
Pool party's are the best! ...Until someone decides to drive a vehicle in for a swim. Someone should have told her Jeeps don't make good pool toys, and aren't boyant. Check it out, it'll make you feel better about that time you walked out...

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
