There's a cool event going down this December for NYC-based Zeppelin fans (which is certainly a broad group of people). The Zeppelin Bowl tribute goes down at Brooklyn Bowl on December 28 with a great lineup that includes Gene Ween, Scott Ian and John Medeski, with several more guests promised to be announced later. Tickets for that are on sale now.
Speaking of John Medeski, there's some other news on that front. We already mentioned that LA R&B outfit King had moved their Irving Plaza show to Le Poisson Rouge tonight (10/18). Originally at LPR tonight was supposed to be the first of three Medeski Martin and Wood shows which got canceled as Chris Wood needed to undergo emergency surgery. He's on the mend now.
The three Medeski Martin and Wood shows are now rescheduled for January, but Medeski will still also be playing the other two shows at LPR this week, including one with Martin. First, John Medeski will be joined by The Campbell Brothers at LPR on Wednesday, October 19, and tickets for that are on sale now. Then Medeski and Martin will be joined by Wilco guitarist Nels Cline at LPR on October 20 as Medeski, Martin and Cline. Tickets for that are on sale now.
Ween have also been playing some shows (they recently played LA) and will hit the NYC area for three Capitol Theatre shows on November 25-27. Tickets for the 11/ 25 and 11/27, as well as three-day passes, are still available.
Meanwhile, the Dean Ween Group is heading out on tour with the Meat Puppets tonight (10/18), in support of The Deaner Album which is out on 10/21. All those dates are listed, along with a video of Ween covering Led Zeppelin, below...
