15-60-75 The Numbers Band

When: Sat., Nov. 9, 8 p.m. 2013

For more than 40 years now, the avant blues act 15-60-75 the Numbers Band has been a singular entity on the local music scene. Band leader Bob Kidney is a compelling frontman who has a poet’s sensibility and plays a mean guitar too. A release party for the reissue of the band’s terrific 1976 live album Jimmy Bell’s Still in Town, tonight’s show will feature original members Mike Stacey and Drake Gleason, both of whom played on the album. Songs such as the woozy "Narrow Road" and the jazzy, Steely Dan-like title track are simply mesmerizing, suggesting the degree to which the band was firing all cylinders back in the day. The disc also features two unreleased songs from a live show at the original Agora and a tune from a WMMS Coffee Break Concert. The group will also sell a few limited edition copies of the disc that have been printed on 140-gram vinyl. (Niesel)
