Saturday, March 26; Brickyard Pizza (all ages, 8 p.m.): Perhaps it's his James Dean, just rolled in, screw you kind of approach that really speaks to his fans. Whatever it is, Eric McFadden makes it work. McFadden is in town to do the kind of music you won't hear from his well-known trio or from the P-Funk All Stars. With some impressive notches in his career belt, McFadden has managed to strut his stuff with some of the best, such as the Reverend Horton Heat, Primus man Les Claypool and Bo Diddley. Tonight he will be joined by Wally Ingram, a percussionist from McFadden's latest project Stockholm Syndrome. Ingram has a long list of performing credits including tours and performances with Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal and Neil Young.

The duo integrates McFadden's unique, improvisational guitar playing and Ingram's sharp-edged percussion styles for all ages to rock out to. This tour is in support of their CD project aptly entitled, Let's Keep the Rock Alive. Brickyard Pizza owner Derek Young is "very excited" to present Eric McFadden and Wally Ingram in a one of a kind performance. This is the kind of show folks will talk about for years to come.
