Garaj Mahal
« on: May 04, 2006, 12:17:57 AM »
Has anyone else heard these guys? They RIP!!

Crazy musicianship, and really really interesting tunes. It's like the perfect mix of jazz/funk/indian (sitar).

www.garajmahal.net

I think there are a few shows going around bt.etree, but you can download a few tunes from the website too. I really dig "Mondo Garaj".

These guys are cool.
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

Yeah, saw 'em a couple years ago in a dive of a bar in Asheville, NC....really enoyed myself.

I have to be careful not to confuse them with Garage a Trois (who also rip.  stanton moore, charlie hunter, skerik, and mike dillon.....sweeeeeeeeeeeet.)

I always get the two confused.  :?
"...ruminations of the end of empire, what it is like for a society to no longer have the will to pull itself as a whole, as a single entity, forward. It is a recipe for the disenfranchisement of significant portions of the country, for a divorce of one America from the other" -David Simon

yep, i've seen both bands and both are very good.
though i have to give the edge to anything with skerik.

there's a little tour going on right now, coming to LA and SF this month called 'the coalition of the willing' which includes skerik and charlie hunter.

i'm going...

Garaj rules.  I saw them quite a few times a few years back, but now I havent seen them the past few for whatever reason.

Garage A Trois rules too!  Good stuff.

I heard last night that these guys are playing June 23 at a festy not to far away from me.
Debating making the drive just for the one night.
Can they still bring it in 2018?
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

Ridiculously talented drummer in that group too, highly recommended.
