Don’t call Eddie Spaghetti lazy.
The Seattle by way of Arizona rocker is not only playing with his band, the Supersuckers, at the Magic Bag this weekend, but he’ll also be opening the show with an acoustic set.
“I’ll be a busy man,” notes Spaghetti (real name Edward Dayly III). “It’s just kind of to show people what we’re capable of as a musical entity. I think it’s a good treat for the people that come to see our band to also see the solo stuff beforehand, ’cause it gives them a little taste of the country side of what we do.”
Spaghetti says his own set “varies from night to night,” often honoring fan requests for rare and obscure material, as well as favorites. “I kind of just want to have fun with the crowd before we set the stage with the rock,” he explains.
And the Supersuckers’ rock will likely include some new material from an album the group is currently mixing and hopes to have out in April. It will be the follow-up to 2006’s “Paid” and includes songs such as “Something Good For Ya,” “What It Takes” and “She is Leaving,” which Spaghetti says the group is most likely to play.
“There’s some love songs on this one, which is kind of different for us,” he says with a laugh. “I just think we’re getting older and more willing to write about that side of life.
“We’re hoping (the fans) dig ’em even though they haven’t heard them before. We just try to make sure we keep the energy of the show on a consistent level and make sure the new songs aren’t dropping that down in any way.”
