Meant for the Milk Crate returns to the Stone Fox Friday, January 9. The night will be hosted by Al-D & E.T. and will feature Memphis’ Iron Mic Coalition (including Jason Da Hater), Adoniyah, Tio & DJ Vamp. There will also be an open mic cypher after the show. The event is 21+, $5, and starts up at 9:30.
By day, Jack Silverman is the Scene’s mild-mannered managing editor, assigning coverage here, repairing a split infinitive there. But when darkness falls, he takes up his ES-335 and unites with a rotating cast of badass local players — tonight he’ll feature Alison Krauss’ brother/Lyle Lovett’s longtime low-notesman Viktor Krauss on bass — bringing us space odysseys, hot crime jazz, and other instrumental selections that might make you question the funkiness of the proverbial mosquito’s tweeter. Starting the evening off is virtuoso violinist Tracy Silverman (no relation — we knew you were going to ask), a stylistic chameleon whose six-string electric fiddle and looping pedal lend themselves to Hendrixian theatrics as easily as the pieces composed for him by minimalist maestros like Terry Riley and John Adams. One question remains: Can a cozy West End eatery contain the cosmic power unleashed when Tracy sits in with The Ordeal, morphing them into … The Silvermen?
