The beating heart & soul of Columbus rock & roll - Willie Phoenix - will be opening the Rosie Reunion show this coming Friday, October 23rd at the LC. Doors are at 7 pm, the mighty Soul Underground (Myke Rock on bass, Kim Crawford on guitar & drummer-extraordinaire Jim Johnson) takes the stage promptly at 8 pm, so get out to the show early if you would like to witness the effortless command of a Big Stage that Willie Phoenix has been exhibiting in Columbus for close to 40 years.
Further, Willie's brand-new CD - Captain Psychedelic - will be available for sale at this show for the first time anywhere. Get 'em while they're hot.
(Incidentally, Pencilstorm's own Ricki C. will be wrangling guitars for Willie & the Soul Underground at this show, reprising a role he began in 1978 and continued up until 1990, when Ricki first met & befriended The Wire - soon to become Watershed - and established a friendship with Colin Gawel that continues to this day. Willie Phoenix has many times been the glue that binds the Columbus music scene together.)
