Political Puppet Shows
Nightlight
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 www.lincolntheatre.com.

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.
