GARY LUCAS & GODS AND MONSTERS PLAY THE BOWERY POETRY CLUB NYC FRIDAY JAN. 5TH @ 10PM
308 BOWERY (CORNER OF BLEECKER)
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
