British psychedelic rockers Traffic haven’t officially been a band since the early ’70s, so don’t let the title of guitarist Dave Mason’s show fool you. This isn’t a reunion. Mason has had a longer solo career than he ever had with the band that made him famous, so he’ll be playing plenty of tunes from that catalog, but he’ll also be jamming on Traffic (get it?).
The show is a retrospective of the rock Hall of Famers, including film clips, behind-the-scenes stories and footage, along with a bunch of Traffic hits. Not a bad way to kick off the Egg’s 2014 season.
Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam comes to the Egg (Empire State Plaza, Albany) on Saturday (Jan. 4) at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $34.50 to $44.50. Call 473-1845 for more info.
