A Tiny Thanksgiving in San Francisco with Karl Denson…
Karl Denson's Tiny Universe is celebrating Thanksgiving weekend in San Francisco this year with two shows at The Independent on Friday November 27th and Saturday November 28th. This will be the last 2009 dates for KDTU who have been touring nonstop in support of their latest record Brother's Keeper. Joining forces with the Tiny Universe is fellow Greyboy Allstars member Robert Walter's 20th Congress who will be supporting both nights. Other members of the Congress include Cochemea Gastelum Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, Amy Winehouse), Chuck Prada (Black Eyed Peas) as well as Chris Stillwell and Aaron Redfield from The Greyboy Allstars. It will be a family affair so expect quite a few collaborations throughout the nights. There are still a few tickets left from KDTU Ticketing and Ticketweb.
Doors open at 8:30pm, the 20th Congress hits at 9pm, and KDTU at 10pm.
In other news, Karl will be rejoining The Greyboy Allstars for a short run of dates in December including New Year's Eve In Denver at the Ogden. It is getting harder and harder for these guys to play with everyone's individual schedules so if you haven't seen the band, this is where it all started...
