Egg Babies plan first all-covers show since July

The cover band Egg Babies has scheduled its first show since July for later this month.

They will perform along the Bellevederes, the local soul band, at the Ottobar January 29.

The band Meetwood Flack, which includes members of both Egg Babies and the Bellevederes, will also perform a series of covers of Crosby, Nash and Stills songs. 

Nah, just kidding. They'll be doing Fleetwood Mac covers, hopefully, along with a couple of Steve Nicks imitations. 

The members of Egg Babies don't perform regularly; they just get together every few months for a show. 

This will be Meetwood Flack's second show ever. Their last was in July, when they got Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner to sing lead on a bunch of songs. 

Why Fleetwood Mac? Band member Michael Ward says it always gets a big reaction. 

"Those songs are timeless and people of all ages still enjoy them," he said. The show will consist of an encore of the last show, but will include one new interpretation.  

Come see the witchy magic at 9 p.m., January 29. Tickets, at $10, will be sold at soon.

I've been waiting for a triumphant return from the Babies.

I LOVE Fleetwood Mack! Is there safe parking at the Otto Bar? It will be a whole night of songs?

Why are they called Egg Babies?

Hey Erik,
Thanks for the post, Just wanted to clarify one thing. There are 3 bands on this show. The Bellevederes are doing a set, followed by Meetwood Flack, followed by the Egg Babies. Meetwood Flack are the band doing Fleetwood Mac songs. The Bellevederes are doing non-Fleetwood Mac songs...their normal 1960s Stax era Soul. The Egg Babies are doing a non-Fleetwood Mac set, which will be a theme show that we are leaving up to the crowd to figure out. So only 1/3 of the music played that night is Fleetwood Mac songs. Hopefully not too confusing! Thanks!!

That guy on the upper right looks like Bert Blyleven. That's a weird baseball name, Blyleven, but I like it.

Anyone know if those guys ever play "somewhere over the rainbow"?

Also, they had a chic (Kelly Butcher, wife of Among Wolves drummer jadon) that wasn't Jenn Wassner singing in most of the songs and she kinda kicked hiney. No offense to Jenn, who's wonderful in her own right, but the Meet is worth seeing regardless of whether or not quasi-fame-lovers get to name drop or not. Seriously, this will be a great night
