Mr. Blotto in Spring Grove

We have this AWESOME and UNIQUE TO THE AREA event coming to The Shores Of Turtle Creek this Spring! FRIDAY MARCH 27TH Mr. Blotto Walking Tacos - $3.50/bag Chicago Style Hot Dogs - $2.50 ENTRY: $15 - ADVANCE $20 - DAY OF SHOW - DOOR 21+ WITH ID CASH BAR Doors Open at 7pm Band Starts at 8pm Biography: Mr. Blotto was born in Chicago as an off-night vehicle for musicians who loved each others playing but were in different bands at the time. The only rule was that they would only play what they loved. That philosophy continues today and has led Mr. Blotto into unique musical situations. Mr. Blotto takes the Jam band asthetic into areas unfamiliar to the standard Jam Scene. They have been known to cover entire albums by Led Zeppelin and the Who as well as perform entire shows of Country and Reggae. Artists as diverse as the Grateful Dead, the Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson and The Velvet Underground have seen their material interpreted by Mr. Blotto in the 2000+ shows the band has performed in the last 20 years, yet covers only pepper the bands hefty catalog of original material stemming from 7 studio albums and other unreleased crowd favorites. "Barlow Shanghai", the 5th CD sees the band in collaboration with John Perry Barlow (lyricist to the Grateful Dead). This CD was released in 2006 and is available from the Official website
