On Friday, Oct. 28, at 8 p.m., The Clyde will welcome American roots band The Wood Brothers

The band consists of brothers Chris and Oliver Wood plus multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix. With Chris, who was a part of Medeski Martin & Wood, on the upright bass, Oliver on the acoustic and electric guitar, and Jano on the skins, their music is a combination of folk, gospel, blues, and jazz. 

The Wood Brothers had their 2015 album Paradise hit No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, received a Best American Album Grammy nomination for 2016’s One Drop of Truth, and have toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe, including their first headlining performance at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, two nights at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore, and festival appearances at Bonnaroo and XPoNential. 

General admission and reserved seating tickets are available at clydetheatre.com, by calling (800) 514-3849, or by visiting The Clyde box office, all Wooden Nickel Records locations, Neat Neat Neat Records, and Sweetwater Sound.

Switchfoot gets into holiday spirit

Another worthy announcement by The Clyde will be sure to get folks in the Christmas spirit. 

Taking the stage Friday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. will be the hitmaking California alt-rock act Switchfoot, who will bring the This Is Our Christmas Tour to town for an evening of modern and classic holiday songs, along with all the band’s hits. 

Coinciding with the tour, the Grammy winners are releasing their first holiday record This Is Our Christmas on Nov. 4, which features their signature West Coast sound infused into holiday classics and new original Christmas songs. 

Raging good show coming to Brass Rail

When a band is fronted by a 7-foot drag queen with colorful hair and heels, it is sure to grab one’s attention, so much so that you might want see for yourself. If so,  head to The Brass Rail on Thursday, Sept. 22, when Bev Rage & The Drinks take the stage. 

This garage-pop band from Chicago has been around since 2015 and has become one of the Windy City’s most entertaining acts. The band has hilariously forthright lyrics, squalling guitars, fuzzy bass, and top-notch showmanship of singer and guitarist Beverly Rage. The band just released an LP, Exes & Hexes, if you would like to take a gander. 

The Brass Rail performance will have local support by The Namby Pamby and Necromoon

Final shows at Muse this weekend

Don’t forget, this will be the last weekend for The Muse on Main before they sadly close their doors for good. 

Do me a favor and stop by the all-ages venue to give co-owners John Kaszowski and Dylan Roldan a big thank you and to take in some good music.

On Friday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m., you can catch Molech, disappear, Atomic Collapse, and Mutilation Barbecue on the big stage. Then, on Saturday at 7 p.m., the bill features Pharohound, Anti-Clutch, Hopewell Fault, and Seventh Crown

Thanks for the memories!
