Rodrigo y Gabriela at The Egg

In what we're guessing will be a fun show, heavy metal Spanish acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are coming to The Egg October 12.

If the "heavy metal Spanish acoustic guitar" thing sounds odd -- have a look at the video embedded above. They're totally unexpected and awesome. There are a bunch of clips of them on YouTube.

Tickets for the show go on sale July 23. They're $44.50 and $49.50. (The tickets are available pre-sale to Egg members and it looks you could probably get through the Rodrigo y Gabriela site.)

Also: Guitarist Bernie Williams -- the former center fielder for the Yankees -- is coming back to the Egg October 2 for "an evening of jazz and rock topped off with Latin rhythms." Tickets start at $24.50 and go on sale July 21.

My ears thoroughly enjoyed their music. Watching Rodrigo y Gabriela strum their guitars is mesmerizing.


I worked with them a couple of years ago at SummerStage in NYC. Not the nicest pair of folks, but they put one one HELL of a show!
