Eric Clapton with Derek Trucks at the Brooklyn Musuem

Ok, so I completely lied, but it certainly is a catchly headline. More importantly, the truth of the matter is that tour dates have finally been announced for the much-rumoured (yes, British spelling) highly-anticipated Clapton/Trucks tour. As of now, they'll only be playing in Europe, but that includes a SEVEN-NIGHT STAND at Royal Albert Hall. Seven friggin nights... I would love to see one of those shows and I REALLY hope they come stateside. (Note that they're also playing at Globen in Stockholm, which is where I saw the World Cup of Hockey, and it looks like an enormous geodesic dome that you can see all the way from Stadshuset. You can check out the tour dates here.

As for this upcoming weekend, I'll be at the Brooklyn Museum on Saturday night. It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's free and it's a big party. From 7-8:30, the Upright Citizens Brigade will "wander through the Museum performing hilarious routines in unexpected places." I love New York. Followed by that will be a DJ spinning in the Great Hall, then back into the city for a birthday party and then late night concert Raq at the Bowery.

Post script:
Here's a clip of an IM conversation I just had with Jarnow:
me: so, eric and derek!
Jarnow: what about 'em?
Jarnow: i mean, i knew they were playing together
Jarnow: is there anything besides that?
me: 7 nights at royal albert
Jarnow: heady
Jarnow: i'm not much of a clapton fan, but maybe derek'll make him grow some balls
me: exactly
Jarnow: little boys sometimes do that for crusty british dudes ;-)

Eric Clapton at the FleetCenter in 1998 ranks as one of the lamest, least inspired concerts of my life.

"Clapton is god" was my motto as a teeanger. After that, it was "Clapton is boring."

I hope Derek can motivate his ass. But otherwise, the show interests me about as much as the Britney exhibit in Brooklyn.

Dude, am I living in an alternate universe or did this blog post get lost in the system for six weeks?

Read the date on the press release tourdates you linked to -- February 22nd. This has been confirmed for a long while, my friend.

And if you read your buddy Ace's blog, you'd have seen this newsy piece of news: Derek and the Dominos Redux.

Sorry to be a dick, but I'm a dick.

Hello! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share.
Many thanks!
