Hit the Jackpot on Thanksgiving Eve
Although the Jackpot lineup has morphed considerably since frontman Rusty Miller first started playing the club circuit, today’s incarnation seems to be firing on all cylinders. While the band hasn’t been quite as prolific these days, they still manage to find time in their busy schedules to eek out a show or two. Between John Gutenberger’s Two Sheds, Miller’s tours with Jason Lytle from Grandaddy, James Finch Jr.’s dabblings with Truck Fight and Prairie Dog, and Dave Brockman’s Miles project, the Jackpot machine travels on. As luck would have it, the band plays Wednesday at 9 p.m. at Old Ironsides, located at 1901 10th Street. Stay up late and sleep in on Thanksgiving Day. Also on the bill are An Angle, Ghosts Of California, and the multitalented Jessica Cuckovich. For only $10 (and the cost of enough booze to induce a mild swagger), this show is the place to start the long weekend.
