Friday, Feb. 11 – Dead Kenny G’s @ The Llama. $10 @ 10pm. These guys are a Seattle based Jazz/Punk/Experimental trio. Here is a quote from Glide magazine about the band. “Appearances aside, it was clear that the Dead Kenny G’s were the antithesis of easy listening. The musicians avoided all things smooth and connected, opting to support their sound with experimental tinkering, progressive explosions and stylistic snippets. There was no telling what path the band would journey down and when they would switch gears.” TheDeadKennyGs.com
