Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has announced a new play at The Fillmore in San Francisco on November 25, affectionately dubbed “Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Presents Eat A Bunch Of Peaches.” Known for his genre-spanning excellence in tributes, the Rolling Stones saxophonist and his nineteen year old band will perform the music of the Allman Brothers Band. The show’s theme is seemingly a nod to ABB’s 1972 Eat A Peach album, as the font also indicates Allman Brothers-esque praise. KDTU typically taps a slew of special guests for these tribute-type shows, though none have yet to be announced. White Denim will open the show as support.
Tickets go on-sale this Friday, September 29 at 10am PST.
Eat A Peach is the third studio album of the Allman Brothers Band. It is also arguably the most renowned collection of songs to the band’s repertoire, including studio classics like “Melissa,” “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” and “Blue Sky,” as well as staple live tracks like, “One Way Out,” “Trouble No More,” and the thirty-minute “Mountain Jam.” The album was released on February 12, 1972 by Capricorn Records, and was the final record to include guitarist Duane Allman, who died four months earlier in a motorcycle accident at the age of 24.
The album’s title came from Duane Allman’s response to an interviewer’s question: “How are you helping the revolution?” Duane replied, “There ain’t no revolution, only evolution, but every time I’m in Georgia I ‘eat a peach’ for peace.” Read more about the album here.
