TGIF June 19: Canned Heat

by The Editors on June 16, 2009

Wl 4Color2.JpgTalk a walk back to Woodstock this Friday night at Stagecoach Park as the counter culture electric blues of Canned Heat take the stage for opening night of The City of Carlsbadistan’s 2009 TGIF: Jazz In The Parks.

Canned Heat’s unique blend of modern electric blues, rock and boogie earned them international attention and secured their niche in the pages of rock ‘n’ roll history with their performances at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival (along with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who) and a headlining slot at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969. Now celebrating their 40th anniversary, Canned Heat is still going strong. Anchored throughout by the steady hand of drummer/band leader Adolfo “Fito” de la Parra (a member since 1967), Canned Heat is on track to carry the boogie-blues it made famous well into the 21st century.

Save us some cheese and crackers please. It’s a long walk to the Eastern Front.
