MM&M at Hardywood: Live Music

With an event with so many moving parts the schedule is subject to what happens. So if you want to be sure of seeing a particular band's entire performance don't plan on the show running behind. It may, somewhat, but here's the schedule we hope to follow, as far as the live music is concerned.

The Red Hot Lava Men will start at 1:00 p.m. 

The Red Hot Lava Men are a surf-rock band that formed in 1997. They play righteous covers of classic surf guitar instrumentals from the late-'50s/early-'60s. Personnel: Mark Golden; John Gotschalk; Doyle Hull; Greg Weatherford.

Happy Lucky Combo will start at 3:15 p.m.

Tarras + Marx Bros + P.T. Barnum + Emir Kusturica + Raymond Scott + Lawrence Welk + Nino Rota + John Phillip Sousa + Maria Montez in Gypsy Wildcat + Hoosier Hot Shots + 3 Tries for a Dollar = Happy Lucky Combo. The group originated 10 years ago as a trio of street musicians: Barry Bless; Pippin Barnett; Dave Yohe.
Samples of music.

Avers will start at 4:30 p.m.

Serendipitously, members of various bands with projects aplenty fell together a couple of years ago. Now they're a tight, six-piece, sort of psychedelic rock band that just knocked 'em dead at the South by Southwest Music festival (SXSW) in Austin. Tyler Williams, James Mason, James Lloyd Hodges, Alexandra Spalding, Adrian Olsen and Charlie Glenn are Avers.
