When: Fri., Aug. 8, 8 p.m. 2014
Straight out of ’67, rockabilly riot Commander Cody is coming to the Magic Bag this Friday night. You can expect that founder, lead singer and keys enthusiast George Frayne knows a thing or two about show business; after all, his alias was inspired by a 1950s film serial. However, the plethora of genres and instrumentals thrown into his alt-country, Americana sound may come as a bit of a surprise. On a bed of ‘boogie-woogie piano’, Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen lay down everything from harmonica and guitar to the sax and fiddle.
