Tony Gilkyson & Friends at Skylight Tuesday

Gilkyson at Railyard in June
A few weeks ago former Santa Fe musician Tony Gilkyson made a rare local appearance at the Make Music Santa Fe show at the Railyard Plaza.

Well he's back.

Tony -- who has been a member of Lone Justice, X and Chuck E. Weiss's G-d Damn Liars-- is playing at Skylight Tuesday night.

He'll be playing with a band made up of Santa Fe all-star cronies including  David Gilliland, Arlen Johnson, Mark Clark, and Steve Lindsay, who is visiting Santa Fe after several years in exile.

Lindsay told me, "We'll be unrehearsed and winging it, but they are all great players and it's a one-off occasion so it might even be OK. "

I bet he's right. Show starts 7:30 pm Tuesday.
