Galactic, Hot Tuna headed back to Tetons

In what is fast becoming a winter tradition, the NOLA funk band Galactic will return to play the Knotty Pine on Feb. 20. This will be the group’s third visit to Victor, Idaho, in the last four years. Tickets are $35 and available now on the Galactic website, but go on sale Friday at the Knotty without a service fee.

Living Colour vocalist Corey Glover, featured above, again will accompany the band. Knotty Pine owner Brice Nelson called Galactic’s last visit in March “one of the best nights of music in our 17 years.”

The show is part of the “Freeze Out Tour” that will take Galactic from Mardi Gras in New Orleans across the West to The Fillmore in San Francisco.

The Pink Garter Theater in Jackson also has been fleshing out its winter schedule, with Hot Tuna — the acoustic duo of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady — on Feb. 15 and slamgrass jammers Leftover Salmon on March 3. Tickets for Hot Tuna go on sale at noon Friday for $35.

The Pink Garter also will host a New Year’s Eve Funkathon with the Colorado rock band Fox Street Allstars for $15.

    Am I the only one who wishes Galactic was booked at the Pink Garter? And I live in Victor! They have outgrown the Knotty, and as much as the KP is a great local venue…the Pink Garter is the better venue choice for Galactic in 2012. The Pink Garter has better room for the band and the crowd. Maybe their tour schedule doesn’t want to risk bad weather getting in and out of the Hole…but damn….a high caliber band like the NOLA boys at the cramped KP is a bummer.
