Sunday To-Not-Do: Richard Lloyd

Richard Lloyds tour was cancelled because of health problems.
  • Richard Lloyd's tour was cancelled because of health problems.

UPDATE: This morning, I got word from Revolution's Chris King that Richard Lloyd's tour had been cancelled. This message was posted on the Official Richard Lloyd Fan Page facebook:

I regret to inform you that the Richard Lloyd and Grand Strand June 2012 Tour has been cancelled. Richard's health has declined over the past week and on June 11 he was admitted to the hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. Again I am sorry for the cancellation.

What a bummer. Here's hoping Lloyd gets well soon. If you feel like helping the guys out, you can buy one of the tour T shirts.

8:30 p.m. Revolution. $10 adv., $12 day of.

Attn. Central Arkansas guitar geeks: Richard Lloyd is playing in Little Rock. That's right, the same guy who was responsible for one half of the blazing, virtuosic guitar duels snaking throughout Television's stone-cold classic debut "Marquee Moon" and its worthy (though not as revolutionary) follow-up "Adventure."

And check this: I'm told the drummer on this tour is none other than Billy Ficca, whose tricky, polyrhythmic percussion was as integral a part of Television's sound as those magical, intertwining guitars.

And now check this: Also performing with Lloyd and Ficca is Danny Tamberelli, the musician and actor known for his role on the surrealistic Nickelodeon series "The Adventures of Pete & Pete." Got all that?

Let's recap: half of Television, plus the guy who played Little Pete are playing Sunday at Revolution. Pardon me for a sec while I go ask somebody to help me figure out whether I'm tripping balls or having a stroke or something right now. Look for Lloyd and crew to play some of his recent tunes, some Hendrix covers and maybe a couple of Television classics as well. The opening act is Grand Stand, which features Kelley Anderson of the Tennessee retro-rockers Those Darlins.
