Wade “Wyllys” Wilby has been contributing to Hidden Track since our early days, so you’ll excuse us for getting a little verklempt as our favorite turntablist hits the road this weekend as part of his Look Mom, No Lights debut tour. There will be no laptops to be found as Wyllys heads out with two turntables, a mixer and a stack of vinyl to perform in support of friends the Disco Biscuits, Marco Benevento, Kung Fu and Newton Crosby.
The action starts on Thursday at Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ where Wyllys will be joined by longtime collaborator Rob Marscher (Addison Groove Project, Matisyahu) on keys at a show that also features Newton Crosby and Kung Fu (members of RAQ and the Breakfast). On Friday, Wyllys returns to his home state of Connecticut to open for Marco Benevento at The Main Pub in Manchester. Saturday finds Wyllys spinning at setbreak of the rescheduled Disco Biscuits gig at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Finally, Wyllys teams up with Adam King (Dead Sessions, Seth Yacovone) for Hijack The Disco on Sunday night at Club Metronome in Burlington, VT.
