Jam band Someone You Can Xray guests on The Day's 'Live Lunch Break' concert series
Band names are fascinating. Back in my time playing with Safety in Numbers, we'd spend long van rides or interminable post-soundcheck time lags thinking up band names — the more ridiculous, the better. Most of them can't be printed here, but I still like Argyle Gargoyles and Last One Dead Has the Paws of a Cheetah.
None of us, however, came up with Someone You Can Xray, although, all these years later, a Connecticut fusion-folk-psych band has done just that. With effortlessly capable musicianship and weight-free jammage, Someone You Can Xray offers sonic touchstones summoning pleasant aural images of Hot Tuna, It's a Beautiful Day, and Jerry Goodman if he got left off the Mahavishnu Orchestra tour bus and joined the Tedeschi-Trucks Band.
The band's debut EP, "Like Minded Fools," was released in July, and we're excited that they're appearing Thursday as our guests on The Day's "Live Lunch Break" concert series. It'll be a stripped-down show — probably a duo or trio — but count on greatness. The performance and interviews take place at noon in New London's Telegraph Record Shop.
