Make It a Long Weekend: Ian Anderson Solo

Sunday, Oct. 11: Ian Anderson @ Foxwoods

As a solo artist and frontman for Jethro Tull, Anderson has been releasing intelligent, eclectic music for decades, pioneering the rock flute and running the gamut from acoustic folk to alleged heavy metal. Perhaps his most endearing quality, Anderson is an avowed cat man, and has made his affection for felines and other animals apparent in many lyrics, whether as a metaphor for human passions, as in "The Secret Language of Birds" or "Bungle in the Jungle," or as literal subjects, as in "Heavy Horses" or "...And the Mouse Police Never Sleeps."
