Legendary vibraphonist Mike Dillon brings his latest project The Mike Dillon Band to Nietzsche's tonight for what's sure to be a treat for local music lovers. The Houston native and former member of Critters Buggin has played with a staggering array of artists including Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco, and Galactic; and if you want to see what bandleaders used to do back in the day, tonight's show will be highly instructional. Combining punk's DIY ethos with the classic American music of the 20th century and tasty funk grooves, Mike Dillon is a bandleader on a mission to get the crowd jumping, and like the greats, he succeeds.
Check it all out for yourselves tonight at Nietzsche's. Doors open at 7, the show begins at 8, and tickets are $12 at the door.
