"Battlestar Galactica" composer Bear McCreary's band 17 Billion Miles of DNA will perform a live internet concert Thursday, October 20th @ 9pm. This bizarre little jazz band is best described as Django Reinhardt meets Astor Piazzola meets Axl Rose. "Battlestar" vocalist Bt4 will be singing lead vocals, and "Battlestar" percussion maestro M.B. Gordy will be on drums. McCreary plays accordion, and provides all the original songs and arrangements.

Also, if you're in the Los Angeles area, come check them out live at The Mint on Tuesday, October 18th @ 9m (7$ Cover). They will be opening for the remarkable Raya Yarbrough, whose voice frequently haunts the "Battlestar Galactica" score (including the piece in "Pegasus" when Admiral Cain first boards the Galactica!).
