Friday, October 28, 8pm: George Winston in the Swyer Theatre
A solo concert by the piano man featuring songs from his new recording “Love Will Come: The Music of Vince Guaraldi,” selections from his seasonal favorites performed in his melodic folk style, as well as some New Orleans R&B, stride piano and more. $29.50.

Wednesday, November 9, 8 PM: Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger of the Doors in the Hart Theatre
The keyboardist and the guitarist of one of the all-time great classic rock bands. With Dave Brock on vocals. “Come on, baby, light my fire…” $35.50, $44.50, $59.50; VIP tix $79.50 (includes meet & greet).

    Wow! This must be their new effort to bring in new young people to the egg. Between the three guys in that photo they almost have one full head of hair. And if you squint your eyes the one guy from the doors looks like Thom Yorke. The kids love Thom Yorke.

    I see Gillian Welch is touring the north east again this fall. Apparently she won’t be stopping by the Egg this time around. Pretty bad when Ithaca can get artists that Albany can’t.

    Gillian Welch’s last show at The Egg was terrific…

    I don’t see much on the schedule that interests me — but theare are loads of shows in Northampton I’d love to see. We can’t get some of those people here?

    Yes it was. I’ve already got my tickets for one of the other stops on the tour this time around. I’d rather be able to walk to the show here but am willing to drive a few hours to see it elsewhere. Sort of like my friend who drove to Boston to see Sufjan Stevens on a week night on his last tour. Why aren’t these acts being booked at the Egg? Are they worried about younger music fans? It isn’t like Sufjan Stevens fans are going to start a riot.

    And Gillian Welch was just given a full hour on NPR’s Fresh Air. I guarantee you many of the people who attend these old time acts at the Egg listen to Fresh Air and probably were impressed. Seems like a no brainer. But, alas, no.

    Maybe its budget issues – but the Egg used to book quality stuff – seen great shows by Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, the Pixies, Medeski Martin & Wood, Roger McGuinn (who they did book again, but why a repeat with no new material?), Andrew Bird, Mark Olson/Gary Louris – seems those days are done . ..
