With all the overeating and binge drinking, it's no wonder that the holidays are cause for the blues. We recommend THE DUKE ROBILLARD BAND for a little commiserating over the next couple of weeks. Robillard — supporting his latest release, The Explorer, on Shanachie Records — won Best Blues Guitarist honor this year at the esteemed W.C. Handy Awards and also helped make Bob Dylan's "comeback" album Time Out of Mind a satisfying one. Robillard's brand of Blues is a fairly celebratory one, as the guitarist leads his band with flourishes of Rock, Country and even Latin Jazz.
At the Southgate House on Friday, Dec. 29 with locals The Mad Hornets.
