GARY LUCAS & GODS AND MONSTERS PLAY THE BOWERY POETRY CLUB NYC FRIDAY JAN. 5TH @ 10PM
308 BOWERY (CORNER OF BLEECKER)
$20
with ERNIE BROOKS (bass), BILLY FICCA (drums), and JASON CANDLER (alto sax)

Gary Lucas, the thinking man's guitar hero, spent time in Taipei when he was young, went on to back Captain Beefheart, and has had a solo career that embraces the avant-garde and alternative rock in equal measures. His band Gods and Monsters plays slightly psychedelic rock with an edge of Americana, and he brings them to the Bowery Poetry Club for an early-January workout.

BOWERY POETRY CLUB
308 Bowery, at Bleecker St. (212-614-0505)--Jan. 5: Gods and Monsters is the rock outlet for the maverick ex-Captain Beefheart guitarist Gary Lucas. While the ever-shifting ensemble has featured such names as Matthew Sweet and the late Jeff Buckley (Lucas co-wrote his hit “Grace"), the current incarnation includes the former Television drummer, Billy Ficca, and the onetime Modern Lovers bassist, Ernie Brooks, making the band an underground-rock fan's dream team.

“The group is mind-blowing"--Time Out NY

“Gary Lucas is one of the best and most original guitarists in America ... his playing is astounding, but always in the service of the song"--Rolling Stone 11/4/06

Their new album Coming Clean (mixed by JERRY HARRISON and HAROLD BURGON) is out now on Mighty Quinn Records (US, Canada, Japan), Side Salad/Universal (UK), Productions Speciales (France), and Exotica Music in Russia (under the title Follow)-- released soon in the Benelux by DAWA Music

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
