As you can probably imagine, a guy named John Butler fronts the John Butler Trio. The other two members have changed over the years, but with the singer-songwriter-guitarist remaining constant, the Australian band’s penchant for roots rock and jamming has never subsided. Butler’s group has been cranking out plenty of new music over the years—five studio albums and three live ones, including the just released Live at Red Rocks (check out the trailer, above). So tomorrow night at Terminal 5 expect to see a talented, road-tested band playing plenty of original material and doing what it does best: Laying it down live.
Daniel Lanois is a musical kind of guy. He’s a world-renowned producer best known for working with the likes of Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, U2 and Neil Young. But he’s also a guitarist, singer and songwriter, so he started a new band, Black Dub, featuring him on guitar, Brian Blade on drums, Daryl Johnson on bass and multi-instrumentalist Trixie Whitley on the microphone. The band (above, playing “I’d Rather Go Blind” in a recording session) comes to The Bowery Ballroom next Wednesday, but you can get a sneak peak, so to speak, tonight: Tune in to WFUV 90.7 FM (or stream here) at 9 p.m. to hear Lanois and Whitley in a taped Words and Music session with Rita Houston.
