Allen Toussaint and The Band for Galactic and KDTU
Last night at the Wilma Theater in Missoula, Montana, Galactic and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe closed out their three show Throw-down Request Live tour series. Fans had been given the opportunity to vote on which songs they would like the two groups to perform together. The highlight of the three nights may have come this past weekend at Denver’s Fillmore which saw them join forces for Allen Toussaint’s “Goin’ Down” and The Band’s “Up On Cripple Creek.” The latter tune featured an extended jam with Galactic’s Ben Ellman on harmonica while Galactic guitarist Jeff Raines and KDTU’s Brian Jordan dug in for extended solos.
Tonight Galactic is on to The Nightlight in Bellingham, WA for a gig with ALO, while KDTU is in Bozeman, MT at the Zebra Cocktail Lounge.
