ChickenJam West Doubles Up 3/15 At The Filling Station
by Eric Kofer
Adrian Legg - Early
Globally acclaimed by critics and fans alike for his unique acoustic and electric ﬁngerstyle guitar playing, Adrian Legg masterfully blends diverse musical styles, inﬂuences and inspirations to create a distinctive sound all his own. With multiple awards and accolades spanning four decades, Legg has been heralded as a “guitarist of astonishing virtuosity, (whose) imagination and melodic invention seem unbounded,” (Q magazine); “ridiculously talented,” (Music Week) and “simply the best acoustic guitar player I’ve ever heard.”(guitar icon Joe Satriani). Setting the stage for his international success in the decades to follow, Legg was named as Acoustic Guitarist of the Decade by the UK’s Guitarist Magazine (1984-94), and Best Acoustic Fingerstylist in Guitar Player Magazine’s Readers’ Poll for four years in a row (1993-96).
This is an early SEATED show. The doors open at 7p.m. with music at 8p.m. As always it is 21+ and tickets are $25 in advance and $28 at the door. Tickets available at Cactus Records and online at cactusrecords.net
Brothers Gow & Stillgone - Late
Situated between deep improvisational musicianship and dynamic, original songwriting, Brothers Gow brings to the stage an imaginative style of modern rock, progressive funk and unpredictable retro-electronic jams. Through an exploration in lively and evolving sound, Brothers Gow has managed to stay true to its roots, which are found in the vibrant vocal styles and extensive range of front men Kyle Merrill (guitar/vocals) and Ethan Wade (bass/vocals). Merrill's emotional solos in tandem with skilled shredding are balanced by the avant-garde bass musings and riff writing of Wade. Brothers Gow is rounded out by wild syncopation and explosive grooves from drummer Nathan Walsh-Haines, and the exploratory and harmonic subtleties of keyboardist Alex Mello who joined the lineup in early 2018.
Please note: This is a LATE SHOW after Adrian Legg (seated), with music at 10p.m. Early arrivals will be asked to wait outside the Filling Station until the early show is 100% completed. As always it is 21+ and tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets available at Cactus Records and online at cactusrecords.net
