Ten Foot Polecats – Last local show until mid 2015 – Fri Nov 21 Cambridge MA
Ten Foot Polecats
Boston, MA | Blues / Roots Music / Punk
Members: Jay Scheffler, Jim Chilson, Chad Rousseau
Ten Foot Polecats are playing their last local show until mid 2015 this Friday night in Cambridge, Mass. This past year has been great but it also been crazy busy as we have been all over the earth! This year we have traveled 25,000 miles to play on stages in 22 US States and 5 European Countries. Needless to say we are cooked!! So we are taking some time off to recharge, and write a new album and maybe some singles as well.
But we got one last hurrah and it is this Friday Nov 21 at The Plough and Stars in Camridge MA. So come on and come celebrate with us….we got some new things for you to listen to as well.
Friday November 21 – 9:30pm
THE PLOUGH & STARS
912 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge MA
“Jim Chilson may be the most important guitarist out there, strangling sheer godhead out of shale and filth, carrying down the road in a battered Ford full of snakes and salvation. Jay Scheffler channels the ghost of Howlin’ Wolf and all the forgotten spectres of bluesmen who sparked and howled in lost jukejoints long forgotten, a mighty voice in the apocalyptic maelstrom of end of times, a prophet. Chad Rousseau pounds the skins of ancient civilization, tribal and bleeding, the darkest rhythm a voodoo rite screwing the very corpse of the lost and sanctified. Combine and verily…the Blues at the end of the world. And, without any doubt, the best live band out there.” — Brian K. Reese, The Real Big Rock Candy Mountain – Best of 2013
“The sound of the Ten Foot Polecats immerses into the bloodstream, coursing through the listener and only adrenaline remains. I could write about how they stand in the shadow of blues giants, allowing their audience in on a secret heritage not many are aware of outside the Black Keys and Jack White’s of the world, but I won’t. Instead, I need the reader to understand that the blues the Ten Foot Polecats play is unlike anything played before. They carry the torch by being innovators and not succumbing to the mainstream definition of blues; therefore, allowing the art to speak for itself; and what a voice it has.” — Adam Hook, Soaked In Sound – Music is my Religion
“You don’t have to be a radical and remove your guitar’s low string to play in open G, the way that Richards does. However plenty of players have followed his path to good result. One example is Jim Chilson of Boston’s Ten Foot Polecats, whose five-string open G finger-picking style is just one reason that band is rising up from the blues underground.” — Ted Drozdowski, Play In Open G Tuning Like Keith Richards (Jim Chilson reference)
