HT Giveaway: Freaks Ball IX Tickets

A week ago, My Morning Jacket rang in the new year in NYC by imploring us all to “celebrate good times… come on!” Well, the NYC Freaks are doing just that, throwing a kick ass celebration at the ninth annual Freaks Ball this Saturday at Southpaw in Brooklyn. This is the show that got Robert Randolph and the Duo started and has featured Bustle In Your Hedgerow, The Campbell Brothers, Apollo Sunshine, Ollabelle, Skerik & Mike Dillon and a whole bunch more. Saturday night should be just as special, with The New Mastersounds headlining with their uber-funk straight from Brittania.

Of course, there’s plenty more on the bill. Danjaboots (Joe Russo & Scott Metzger) will open the night with a rare countrified set of songs about drinkin’, fightin’ and f$%^’in; then the Rodney Speed Experience will set the mood with some classic rock for ya. After NMS. the late night party will get handed over to Rana playing a rawking midnight set. All in all a pretty damn good night. In addition, the night will start off with a special sneak preview of the new Derek Trucks album Already Free and there will be beer specials on Sixpoint brews from 8-10. So come early and often, the Freaks would love you to join ’em: there are still a limited number of tickets left.

We’re aiming for a kick ass celebration with lotsa birthdays, babies being born, not to mention starting the countdown on the last 10 days ’til the country changes hands… what will you be celebrating? Let us know what you’d like to celebrate on Saturday night by leaving a comment below, and we’ll pick a winner for two tickets to the gig on Friday afternoon.

NYC Tsunami Relief Jam 0/31/2005: BB King’s, New York, NY

It seems one man can make a difference. Local New York musician David Lott did more than just watch the tsunami devastation on the nightly news and read the reports in the morning paper. He actually took the tragedy on a personal level and made a call to action.

RANA 0/21/2005: Club Metronome, Burlington, VT

RANA is like taking in a Pavement, Devo, Talking Heads, Cars, Ween
and Ted Nugent concert in 1 two-hour show. Led by the new-wave
vocals of keyboardist Matt Durant, who stands behind the keyboards
in cool Ric Ocasek fashion, and guitarist Scott Metzger, who mans
his guitar with showmanship and grit, RANA is definitely best seen
and heard live.
