Screamin' Georgia peach Little Richard defined the image, sound and threat of rock &roll more than any other human, an act of rebellion completely worthy of tonight's all-Richard homage. Featuring fetching nu-folk enigma The Tennessee Walker, offbeat rock & roll superheroes The Do-Its and drastically relaxed Western rockers The Bloodhounds, it's sure to be a gas. But the real large charge comes from high-voltage tribute act Big Dick, who'll be joined on a few tunes by none other than Richard's original drummer, the legendary Charles "Keep A-Knockin'" Connor. Fronted by singer Kate Flannery, a performer whose volcanic pipes and untamed physicality are damn near as walloping as Richard's, Big Dick is no joke - and with Connor on the riser, you can expect an overdose of rock & roll at its very wildest.
