Get Out 

Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

Political Puppet Shows
Wednesday, March 17

According to the folks at Nightlight, The Providence Puppet Posse is traveling the East Coast and Midwest in a bio-diesel car putting on politically themed puppet shows. The two shows on the bill The Terrible Tales of Timoney, and A Wall is Just a Wall, are based on events at recent political protests.

Original P
Lincoln Theatre
Thursday, March 18

Billed as the "original" Parliament/Funkadelic, this 13 piece band is missing a certain Mr. Clinton, but does feature founding members Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas, and Ray Davis, who played on some P-Funk's greatest hits. Just for the funk of it. Sleeping Booty opens. Tickets are $10 in advance. For information visit

Transportation, Cheers to No Tomorrow, Bringerer
Go! Room 4
Friday, March 19

Three rock bands kicking it for their friend--and Go!'s always gracious host--Mike Triplett. Show starts around 10 p.m. Call 969-1400 for details.

John Howie, Jr., Kenny Roby
Local 506
Friday, March 19

Both of these guys can really tell a story, make you laugh or have you crying in your beer. The Pistols and the New Electric Combo have the night off, so it's just a couple of great songwriters, their guitars and a few twangs from Scott McCall for atmosphere.

The Walkmen with French Kicks
Go! Room 4
Wednesday, March 24, $8, 10 p.m.

Both of these sharp-dressed bands hail from NYC, but their sounds differ. The Walkmen formed after the dissolution of the often-hailed Jonathan Fire Eater, once thought to be a "next big thing," though devoted fans would defend their attempts at Bad Seeds atmospherics and organ-heavy dirges as success enough. Now, The Walkmen retain some of that smoky room mystique, while adding more low-end rumble to things. The French Kicks come equipped with a gun belt of melodic hooks and a power-pop punch, keeping up a feverish pace. Info, 969-1400.

Tony Rice Unit, The Waybacks
Lincoln Theatre
Wednesday, March 24

Bluegrass legend and flatpick innovator Tony Rice and band return with Bay Area jamgrassers The Waybacks. 8 p.m. Tickets cost $17 in advance, $20 on the day of show.
