Sippin on Jee-yin and Juice & r & Did you ever hear that song -- maybe in college, probably during Napster's golden age, before its inevitable collapse -- that your jam band buddy sent you, the filename something like "phish_gin_and_juice.mp3"? Remember that crazy thing? Phish covering Snoop Dog. That was great. Made you wish Phish would do nothing but hip-hop covers.
Well, bad news, friend. That wasn't Phish. It was a roots band called the Gourds. The good news is, they're playing John's Alley in Moscow next Thursday. It's like 80 miles, but if you've ever gone on a road trip to see the String Cheese Incident -- and we know you have -- that distance is nothin'.
Because of Flu & r & Kel-Kel Clarkson has rescheduled her show, and so quickly, too. She'll now be playing the Star Theatre on Dec. 18. Six weeks might seem like a long wait, but it'll allow her to recoup from her crippling bronchitis, and also give her enough time to shred up a fresh batch of hair metal T-shirts, completing an edgy new fall look (which resembles her spring and summer looks).
