STANTON MOORE TRIO7 p.m., Revolution, $10 adv., $15 d.o.s.
Drummers fronting their own acts or side projects are rare luxuries, so rhythmists with no interest in Sunday NFL who aren't too hung-over would be wise to attend this gig and take notes. Stanton Moore
has graced the cover of six drumming trade magazines (and continues to submit regular columns to many of them), and serves as the backbone of Galactic, one of the tastiest funk/jazz/rock/jam machines ever to hail from the Big Easy. Living a drummer's dream, Moore also has a signature snare and cymbal series, runs a digital label (Moore Music), puts out books and DVDs, leads drum clinics and performs in enough side projects to make Jerry Garcia appear lazy. Besides his work with Corrosion of Conformity, Moore has also collaborated with Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello. With organist Robert Walker and guitarist Will Bernard, the Stanton Moore Trio is known for igniting venues with swampy grooves steeped in rhythmic traditions of the Crescent City. With no opening act and an early kick-off, this all-ages show shouldn't be missed.
