Just As Long As Alice Doesn't Show Up in a Tube Top
It promises to be a multi-dimensional Boomer blowout when a founding member of Berkeley's Delicious Revolution goes all blues rocker. On Wednesday, October 7, at the Great American Music Hall, wine import maverick and a hobbyist musician/tunesmith Kermit Lynch will perform joints from his soon-to-hit CD Man's Temptation. Backing musicians include a guitarist who's jammed with Fleetwood Mac, a keyboardist for Rod Stewart, and another guitarist who's made his axe wail for the likes of Bruce Hornsby and Bonnie Raitt.
Fruit forward: Lynch's upcoming CD.
But blues-rock session players won't be the tastiest things in the theater. Besides the delectable jamming, the evening promises delectably jammy wines from Kermit's import biz, as well as a menu designed by Alice Waters, his longtime friend. Proceeds benefit Waters' Chez Panisse Foundation. Considering that regular kitchen offerings at the GAMH include nachos and beer can chicken, Waters' menu should be a rare delight (for $125 a pop, it should be).
Buy tickets online from the Great American Music Hall. And just in case you'd prefer a Buffalo chicken wrap to, say, Provencal fish stew, the venue's regular menu will be available, too. Rock on.
