What band is playing on Friday night? That Band! Which band? That Band! Listen, wise guy, all I want to know is which band is playing on Friday? I already told you: That Band! But seriously, folks ... That Band!, a blues, surf rock type of a get-up will be laying down mad tracks at Thirsty's this Friday. Composed of Don McCray on bass, Emily Pearson on guitar and wind pipes, Malcolm Marchman on piano, Chris Pierce on drums, and Vicki Herman on congas and bongos, That Band! will get all Dick Dale on you one minute and then be all like Janis Joplin or something the next. Mostly covers, but not necessarily the kind of covers you'd expect, necessarily. But if you like "Mustang Sally," then, you know -- feel me?
