Supertramp for August! 


Sometimes there’s a 70’s and 80’s band you love, that people just don’t know enough about. You swear if your friends just heard enough of the songs, they’d realize what they’ve been missing. 

For us, one of those bands is Supertramp. 

Join us on August 3rd at Martyrs and August 5th at Wire when Tributosaurus becomes Supertramp.  

We love this band, whose catalog is extremely deep and varied. Their 70’s roots are firmly in progressive rock, highly skilled and beautifully executed. Rick Davies was a main driving force on vocals, keyboards, harmonica and more. The albums became more artful, with complex harmonies, and intricate saxophone and clarinet work. They produced some of the most unique radio hits of the time.  

And then, bam. The brilliant Breakfast In America dominated the charts in 1979 and 1980. That album showcased the focused writing of bassist/vocalist Roger Hodgson, and his unique vocal sound. The success of the record sent them into the pop stratosphere, and it has sold more than 20 million copies. 

It was also the beginning of the end for Supertramp’s large scale success, as Hodgson and Davies grew apart and ended their association in 1983. 

Thankfully, they left a huge trove of excellent songs; we’re excited to play the ones we love. 

Come out to Martyrs and Wire, where we promise to Give A Little Bit of our love to you in August.

Prince Shows on Sale Now 

He died, and we all mourned.  It felt unfair, to have true genius taken while he still had more shows to play, more songs to write, more souls to fill.  Since then, we’ve watched others play his music, and pay their homage.  Now the time is right, and it’s our turn. 
  
Join us for 2 nights at Wire and 2 nights at Martyrs' in September, as Tributosaurus becomes Prince. 
  
We somehow will choose the best of his more than 1000 songs, representing as many eras of his mastery as we can. The set list will range from early falsetto sex-fueled freakouts, to huge pop radio hits with The Revolution, with a solid taste of the NPG thrown in too.  
  
There are so many beautiful ballads, innumerable funky grooves, brilliantly composed vocal harmonies, and roaring guitar parts.  It will be a very large band, with horns, strings, and a big backing vocal section to do it right.  
  
You may recognize some old friends from our Michael Jackson and Earth, Wind, & Fire shows, aiming to join in the celebration and deliver the goods once again.  If all of us bring 100% of our musical skills and passion, we may almost add up to the talent that Prince Rogers Nelson had on his own.  
  
Rest In Purple, as the music lives on.
