Upcoming Events & News

Slow Hand in October! 

Eric Clapton is a genius; an incredibly important cog in the transformation of blues guitar & the very invention of rock and roll. (   

Now, there A LOT of solo Clapton albums.  His career has gone on long enough that he has made some music you may not love. Heroin and booze didn’t do that guy any favors.  But the excellence and impact of his early output is unparalleled.  There’s a reason London buildings were often defaced with graffiti proclaiming “Clapton Is God.” 

We’ll focus on the great stuff as Tributosaurus becomes Eric Clapton Pre-1971 on Wed 10/5 at Martyrs, and Friday 10/7 at Wire. We’ve already become Cream (most recently just after Jack Bruce passed away), so we’ll skip them in this set. 

October’s gigs will pull songs from: 
Hit records with The Yardbirds as they battled the Beatles for early 60’s London supremacy. 
One incredible collaboration album with Blues scene pioneer John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers in 1966. 
The worlds 2nd supergroup, Blind Faith with he and Steve Windwood. 
The incredible Derek and The Dominoes album “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs,” which is widely hailed as Clapton’s greatest work.  It’s loose, powerful, with lots of good songwriting.  AND Duane Allman is all over it.   
Clapton’s ferocious 1970 self-titled solo album, with “After Midnight” and “Let It Rain.” 
This meticulously manicured pool of Claptonia is Curt Morrison’s birthday month selection, and the great Chicago guitarist Brian Wilkie (who you’ve seen with us for CSNY, The Grateful Dead, The Band and much more) will join the Tributosaurus Guitarmada for both shows. 

Join us.  The music is so good, and we’ll be having so much fun playing it.
