The Mix's Booking Keeps Getting Better: Seattle's Billy Martin (of Medeski, Martin, and Wood) + Skerik Tonight

Billy Martin plays a 9 p.m. set at the Mix tonight with Will Blades. Tickets are $15.
The Mix, that tucked away Georgetown club that Brian J. Barr wrote about last year (6006 12th Avenue South, around the corner from the 9 lb Hammer), recently opened up for lunch and drinks, and has been stepping up its bookings of late, too.

Our ears have perked up for recent sets from the New Pornographers' Kathryn Calder; the pre-Thanksgiving romp from the Dead Kenny Gs, and, of course, tonight's set from Billy Martin -- the middle/drummer portion of Medeski, Martin, and Wood -- and keyboardists Will Blades. They'll be joined by Seattle's own freak-sax giant Skerik. If you like your jazz with a pinch of funk (the good kind, not the city-fair kind), and plenty of tangents and experimentation, it's not to be missed.

Barr and I will be the guys in the corner playing air sax in the key of Manny's.
