Even as the highly esteemed music columnist for the Weekly Volcano, sometimes the lineup at Jazzbones leaves me confused, wondering "who the fuck?" Often times, it takes reading the press release to realize the significance of who the nightclub has booked.

Tonight's show with Bobby Previte's Coalition of the Willing (featuring Bobby Previte, Skerik, Reed Mathis, and Brian Coogan) is just such a show.

Coalition I quickly found out Coogan performs with Stanton Moore's trio, Bonerama, Hairy Apes BMX, and Astral Project, among others. Skerik is a pioneering saxophonist from Seattle who has worked with a list of noteworthy musicians long enough to fill this page, including Roger Waters, Les Claypool, Mad Season, Stone Gossard, R.E.M., and Bonnie Raitt, to name a few. And Previte is a drummer turned composer extraordinaire, whose genius alone was enough to bring this mind-boggling "Coalition of the Willing" together.

Sure am glad I read the press release. Bobby Previte's Coalition of the Willing may be the most interesting thing hitting town all week. â€" Matt Driscoll
