God of Guitars to grace 9:30 Club, Wednesday night!

Tomorrow night at the 9:30 Club, legendary guitar hero Buckethead will grace DC with the power of Buckethead’s Giant Robot, his current touring trio.
For the uninitiated, Buckethead has been a mysterious figure in music for 2 and a half decades playing with the likes of Bill Laswell, Les Claypool, Praxis and most recently Guns & Roses. A diverse group of a musicians for sure, but Buckethead has the chops to play with them all.
Buckethead is the Lone Ranger of guitars. He has built up a legend around himself comprised of such bizarre antics as hiding his identity under a KFC bucket for 25 years and doing martial arts exhibitions between sets at his concerts.
Earlier dates of this tour have delivered a powerhouse of instrumental guitar covering a variety of styles, a nun-chuck display leading into the encore set and a guest lecture on Taxidermy. I’m not joking.
I’m all over this.
$15 @ 9:30 Club 7-21-04
