THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: Leon Redbone, G. Love, the Globes and more

Posted By on Fri, Apr 22, 2011 at 2:42 PM


Local technical metal band Odyssey, who have wowed us with their over-the-top skills, play tonight at Aclub with Mecha Shiva, Dracula and Boldly Stride the Damned. 9 pm. $5. Gotta be 21.

Leon Redbone is a master of elusion — or so we found when The Inlander interviewed him this week. The guitarist, who specializes in ragtime and blues numbers, was once believed to be Andy Kaufman. And later to be Frank Zappa. But no one seems to have the straight story on him. Try and catch him tonight at the Bing after his performance. 8 pm. $25. All-ages. 

Well, I sure as hell hope you're happy that G. Love is coming here, because it seems that Seattle has a big fat problem with it. Join your fellow non-meth-eating fans tonight as the masher of hip-hop, R&B and funk plays tonight at the Knitting Factory. Belle Brigade opens. Spokanistan shirts welcome. 8 pm. $20. All-ages.


We've got a copy of the Globes' Barsuk Records debut in our hot little hands, and you might be able to get one in yours, too, if you hit up the band's sure-to-be-jam-packed show tomorrow night at Jones Radiator. No guarantees, but they've gotta have some, right? Seriously, though, get there early. They play with locals Ampersand and Space Movies at 9 pm. Free. Gotta be 21.

And for something complete completely different and equally entertaining, hit the Knitting Factory for No Quarter's show. They're the ultimate Led Zeppelin cover band (including wigs, tight pants, etc.). They play at 8:30 pm. $10-$12. All-ages.
