The Figgs return home tonight for a special performance at Putnam Den. These guys always put on a great show so make sure you come down and check them out.
This tried and true band, which has a worldwide fan base, a hearty discography, and has toured and recorded several times with the legendary Graham Parker, celebrated the year 2013 by turning 25. This occasion was made even more special by the release of “1,000 People Grinning: The Figgs Anthology”. It’s one of the band’s greatest achievements to date. And that says a lot as the Figgs (Mike Gent, Pete Donnelly and Pete Hayes) have been playing together since the trio was in high school in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
Since the rock outfit’s inception in 1987 the band has spent the better part of the past 25 years touring, recording and working on a variety of acclaimed side projects.
The Anthology’s 25 glorious tracks are stuffed with Kinks-inspired power and melodies, vibrant harmonies and sonic experimentation ala The Beatles and the best of The Band, a touch of NRBQ’s stoner grooviness and a grit and youthfulness akin to the best rock bands from The Who to the Ramones.
Ages: 18+ (Note: there is a $5 surcharge for attendees under 21)
Tickets: $10 at Door
LATE NIGHT SHOW:
While combining elements of hip-hop and jazz, Doctor Magnum eschews the directionless noodling often associated with improvised guitar music in favor of engaged interaction. Self-described as “the mess left behind after a drunken Craigslist orgy between Led Zeppelin, the Jazz Messengers, and the Wu-Tang Clan,” their intricate arranging, blistering improvisations, and progressive sonic palate define a strikingly original brand of instrumental music.
Tickets: FREE SHOW!
