Eric Tollefson and The World's Greatest Lovers Tonight for Free

One of the greatest band names in town, Eric Tollefson and the World's Greatest Lovers, plays for free tonight.

Yes, that is the real name that local blues rocking singer songwriter Eric Tollefson has chosen for his band. I profiled the red head in this week's issue of the Source in advance of the band's triumphant journey to Hollywood to play the Whiskey A Go Go.

But before they head out of town, Tollefson and his band, which includes Pat Pearsall, Lindsey Elias and Keith O'Dell from Empty Space Orchestra and Tim Schroeder, formerly of the Bond Brothers on lead guitar, will play a free show tonight at McMenamins Old St. Francis School. It kicks off at 7pm with an acoustic set from Tollefson and Schroeder then brings the whole band to the stage later in the night for some full-on rocking.

How about that band name, though? Bold, sexy and hilarious -- making for a three-pronged attack of band name goodness. But here's a few names I would have suggested (creating band names is a longstanding hobby of mine) should the World's Greatest Lovers not been so potently awesome: Eric Tollefson and the Huckstable Family, Eric Tollefson and the Disbelieving Dinosaurs, Eric Tollefson and the Highly Motivated Individuals, Eric Tollefson and the Lunatic Fringe, Eric Tollefson and the Aggressive High Fivers, Eric Tollefson and Tollefsons...I could go on.

Are any of these better than the World's Greatest Lovers? No. Not at here's some video of Tollefson and his sexy machine at the Domino Room in September.
