Jethro Tull fans will find themselves making a trip across the river on October 23, when Ian Anderson stops by the Horseshoe Southern Indiana for an evening of music titled "The Best Of Jethro Tull Performed by Ian Anderson." (That pretty much says what it will be.) Anderson, whose stage habit for standing on one leg while playing the flute became a trademark in the Tull years, to the point that he was referred to as the "one-legged flute player" in the band), has managed to maintain a career post-Tull, though not always as a musician - he has an interest in cats, has a salmon farm and and Leica cameras. His successful business interests have allowed him the luxury of continuing to record, with his most recent project, Homo Erraticus, released just this year. Accordingly, don't expect only Tull - there might be selection or two from the new record. Just sayin'. Tickets are $44.50, $59.50 and $74.50.

Here's a recent video of "Enter The Uninvited" from the new record:

The Carolina Chocolate Drops stop in the Clifton Cultural Center for a two-night stand,  October 22 and 23, which is not the first time they've been here, having played a several venues in the area, including the Jugband Jubilee back in 2007. They're definitely more an old-time string band than a jug band, though the differences are more significant to a musicologist than an regular fan. They won a Grammy back in 2010, for Genuine Negro Jig, which certainly testifies to their abilities. Taking their material from the Piedmont (North and South Caroina) musical tradition, they throw in some bluegrass-ish stuff (at least enough to get them at gig at 2011 ROMP in Owensboro) as well as blues (they got a nomination for a Blues Award, too). One could easily argue that they do not care to slotted into a particular genre, which bodes well for the future of the band. Their most recent record is 2012's Leaving Eden, which was produced by Buddy Miller and recorded in Nashville. It hit No. 1 on the Bluegrass Chart and No. 2 on the Heatseekers chart. To sweeten the deal, The Clifton Center has arranged for Birds of Chicago to open. Tickets are $29.

The To Sir With Love spin-off (from Abbey Road On The River) wil feature Terry Sylvester (The Hollies), SixtyFour, Denny Lane (Wings),  The Cryers, BritBeat, Laurence Juber (Wings), Steve Holley, Johnny Heywood, The Rigbys, Kevin Ashba, Peter Conrad, Mark Beyer, The Jukebox and the Nick Peay Band over three days (October 24-25 and 28) in the Galt House and on the Belvedere. This is sort of a Halfway To Abbey Road with the excuse that it's a celebration of the Paul McCartney show. This one is easy - you know what you'll get. Hop over to http://www.arotr.com/

The World's Greatest Garage Band, a.k.a. NRBQ, stops in at Jim Porter's Good Time Emporium on October 24. Of course, only Terry Adams is left from the original group but that's really enough - his infectious energy and rampant chicanery is more than enough to drive any and all other musicians to the point of insanity that they can play with him. And, of course, NRBQ started in the Derby City with Terry and Steve Ferguson before heading to Florida where they added Frank Gadler, drummer Tom Staley and bassist Joey Spampinato to the roster. Despite having been signed to a few labels, they never achieved national success but did build a strong cult following, particularly in Louisville. The configuration that lasted the longest including Adams, Spampinato, Al Anderson and Tom Ardolino. (For a more complete history, head over to Wikipedia) Tickets to the show are $20 (Cheap!)
