first_imgLast week in Eugene, OR, longtime Deadhead and NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton met up with some old associates, the Merry Pranksters, to cruise the college town. They rode aboard Furthur, the legendary school bus bought by Ken Kesey in the mid-60s, to transport his his band of Pranksters across the country.The history between the Merry Pranksters and the Grateful Dead is a long one, as the Pranksters essentially formed the counterculture movement. Needing a band to play at their regular “Acid Tests” in San Francisco, CA, Kesey contacted the up-and-coming Grateful Dead, and the rest was history. It’s no surprise that Walton, who went to college at UCLA, would find his way into becoming a Deadhead.Walton has more than casual ties to Oregon, having won an NBA championship with the Portland Trail Blazers in the mid-70s, as well as Eugene, stating that it’s one of his favorite places to visit. While visiting the University of Oregon campus early in 2015 to call a college basketball game, he noted, “Eugene is one of the legendary places in Oregon…It’s one of the power spots, one of the special places on earth. It’s a place where you can be yourself.”Well, this definitely looks like Bill Walton being himself.

first_imgSince early 2015, fans have been eagerly anticipating a Grateful Dead documentary with Martin Scorsese attached as producer. While hopes to release the documentary in 2015 – the band’s 50th anniversary – fell short, recent talks and rumors seem to indicate that the team is making progress on the film. Now, a new report in Showbiz411 suggests a change of format for the Grateful feature.According to the report, the film has grown so much that it will become a four-hour mini series, and may even debut at the Toronto Film Festival. Still untitled, the film directed by Amir Bar Lev continues to expand with hours of archival footage and interviews with band members, family members, and more.The report also indicates that outsiders, like members of Dave Matthews Band, Phish or Bob Dylan (so named in the report), won’t be featured in the four-hour film. It’s all Grateful Dead, all the time. With Scorsese still on board, as well as Eric Eisner, Nicholas Koskoff and Justin Kreutzmann, there is definitely hope that this will happen after all.Furthermore, Bob Weir was recently reported to be working with Amazon on a biographical docu-series. Could this be the same project? Only time will tell.[H/T JamBase]last_img read more


first_imgNext Saturday, June 25th, a number of New Orleans favorites will join forces at the NOLA Brewery for the second annual Notes for Hope benefit concert, with all proceeds from the event going towards the Music For The Mind campaign of the Brett Thomas Doussan Foundation. With live music from Honey Island Swamp Band, Darcy Malone & The Tangle, Motel Radio, and Amanda Ducorbier, this looks to be a great event for a great cause!From 3 PM to 10 PM, the benefit will take over the main room of the NOLA Brewery, with local craft beers, food, and art vendors serving up some local flavor. The whole event goes towards the wonderful Music For The Mind campaign, which spotlights musicians and features their stories relating to music’s impact on their mental health and wellness. The Campaign has received support from legendary artists such as George Porter Jr., PJ Morton of Maroon 5, Papa Mali, and Big Sam’s Funky Nation, in addition to all of the musicians performing at Notes of Hope!“We hope you too will consider joining our efforts in fostering mental health awareness through musical culture in the city of New Orleans by joining us on June 25th,” says the foundation’s Vice President Ashlyn Blanchard in a statement.

first_imgIn a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez dropped a bombshell that The Mars Volta may eventually reunite. With both Rodriguez-Lopez and singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala having buried the hatchet over their disagreement that saw the group break up, and having since started Antemasque and reunited At The Drive-In, it seems that a The Mars Volta reunion is in the cards.According to Rodriguez-Lopez, “At some point, we’d love to do [Mars Volta] again too, you know what I mean?” There’s so much to do there as well.” He added that there’s only four surviving members left in the band following the deaths of Ikey Owens and Jeremy Ward. “Jon [Theodore] and Eva [Gardner] are still alive, and we’re so grateful for that. And any true fan of the band knows that’s the real chemistry right there. Whenever we get to that time, we hope that it all lines up with whatever Jon’s doing and whatever Eva’s doing, because she’s been touring with Gwen Stefani. I just have a feeling it will. Life has a funny way of working out that way.”After a prolific solo writing period that last until 2013, which will see an unprecedented release of twelve solo albums over the next six months, Rodriguez-Lopez is dedicated to working within the confines of a traditional band in the foreseeable future. He credits the unfortunate death of his mother in 2012 to turning his attentions back to being a part of a group once again:“From that moment on, when I finally started the long road to accepting it and recuperating, I decided that I wanted to dedicate my time, while I’m still here, to collaborating with people and being a part of something and sharing things, rather than working on solo work, where I’m writing everything and doing everything and locked up in my studio. And from there, the idea was born: ‘I only want to be in bands now. I only want to make records with people.’”For the rabid fanbase of At The Drive-In, Mars Volta, Antemasque, Bosnian Rainbows, and basically every project Rodriguez-Lopez touches, the future certainly looks bright.[via Rolling Stone][photo via The Mars Volta FB Page]last_img read more


first_imgSeminal grunge super group Temple of the Dog–made up of Mike McCready, Stone Gossard, and Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden–have released a new single called “Angel of Fire”.The song’s release comes in conjunction with the news that the band’s self-titled debut record will receive a deluxe re-issue in several formats. There will be a four-disc version with a full remaster of the album, alternate mixes, demo recordings, a DVD of live performances, and a Blu-ray copy of the album, and there will also be a more standard double-LP and double-CD release as well. All of the different versions of Temple of the Dog will be released on September 30th.In the meantime, enjoy “Angel of Fire” below. The song comes from the band’s initial recording sessions in 1991, although it was cut from the final edit of the Temple of the Dog album. After the band’s flash-in-the-pan success in 1991, it’s simply awesome to hear previously-unheard material from this band. Temple of the Dog are going on tour in November for the first time ever, so expect to hear “Angel of Fire” alongside beloved hits like “Hunger Strike” and “Pushin Forward to Back” when they hit the road this Fall.[H/T Rolling Stone]last_img read more

first_imgAfter their sold out debut in Richmond, VA on Friday night, Phish tribute act Runaway Gin made their way to The 8×10 in Baltimore, MD for a Saturday evening show. Phish fans got more than they bargained for, as Runaway Gin essentially dedicated the night to a special guest in the audience: Tom Marshall.The band opened with “Tube,” followed by a non-stop segment featuring “Old Home Place,” “Moma Dance,” and “Maze.” The band followed this up with a four-song run including “Axilla,” “Runaway Jim” -> “Steam” > “Harry Hood.” “Also Sprach Zarathustra” > “Limb By Limb” came next, before “Llama” closed the set. What fans in attendance may or may not have noticed is that, in “Phish Dicks” fashion, the first letter of each song in the first set spelled out a special clue about what was to come: “TOM MARSHALL.”The band began the second set by launching into the bittersweet intro of “Brian and Robert.” As the music played, singer/guitarist Andy Greenberg spoke to the crowd, confessing that he “didn’t know the words to this song” and asking if anyone in the room could help him out. Answering his appeal to the audience, Phish lyricist Tom Marshall–who wrote the words to “Brian and Robert”– joined the band onstage, leading them through the tune on vocals.You can watch footage of Marshall’s sit-in below, courtesy of YouTube user Prehistoric Studios:Check out a gallery of photos from the show below, via photographer Jason Herman. For tour dates, videos and live recordings visit Runaway Gin’s website.Setlist: Runaway Gin | The 8×10 | Baltimore, MD | 1/28/17Set 1: Tube, Old Home Place > Moma Dance > Maze, Axilla > Runaway Jim* -> Steam > Harry Hood, Also Sprach Zarathustra > Limb by Limb, LlamaSet 2: Brian and Robert^, Reba > Tweezer > Cities > You Enjoy Myself**> Carini > LizardsEncore: Dogs Stole Things > Frankenstein > Tweezer RepriseNotes: The first set spelled out “TOM MARSHALL”; *unfinished ^RG debut featuring Tom Marshall on lead vocals **w/ Midnight Rider teases Load remaining imageslast_img read more

first_imgMichelangelo Carubba is a renaissance man. Powering the engine inside Turkuaz’s kaleidoscope of groove, the drummer is the beating heart of funk personified. Turkuaz recently came up for air amid a summer tour de force, but alas, no rest for the wicked. On the heels of the band’s fiery Phish-aftershow, Carruba wants back in the ring. The venerable rhythm runner, who recently turned 32, is hosting his 3rd annual birthday bash on August 11th at Brooklyn Bowl. Live For Live Music’s B.Getz caught up with Mikey for a mid-summer rap session. B: You’ve mentioned you’re on a super brief break from Turkuaz in the middle of summer. Tell us about the first half of summer and your personal highlights. Michelangelo Carubba: I mean, we had Red Rocks, we had Bonnaroo, Jazz Fest—those were highlights of not just this summer but of my entire life.  Everyone wants to go to Red Rocks, everyone was to see a show there, and everyone wants to play there. I made it a point not to go see a show at Red Rocks until I was actually playing it, and this year, it became a reality. The whole Lettuce crew brought us on and gave us a real vote of confidence, and it was really cool. You know, we’ve been watching them come up for as long as I can remember, so it was a huge honor for them to ask us to come to Red Rocks. It’s a really special place. Whether you’re a musician or a fan or part of the crew, if you’re involved with that place in any capacity, it brings out the best in you, so that was just an incredible experience I’ll never forget.   Bonnaroo was crazy too. There was a ton of people there and Bonnaroo gave us a great time slot. Whenever someone throws us a pitch, Turkuaz has this ability to tee it up and knock it out of the park, and we did it again at Bonnaroo. Everything has just been great, man. It’s been a great year for music, for me, personally, for my band. I mean, I have zero complaints.B: With regards to Jazz Fest and Bonnaroo, those are sort of the embryos of super jams, and they’ve spiraled in a million directions ever since. There are cool super jams and lame super jams, and I think decidedly in the former category would be your birthday bash. This is the third annual edition of the get-down—how did you come up with the idea and how has it taken shape over the years?Mikey: The first one I did was on my 30th birthday, and that was two years ago. It seemed like sort of a big deal to me. I wanted to come into my thirties swinging—I wanted it to be the next best decade of my life—so I knew I wanted to throw a party. I knew the only thing I could do, the one thing I have to offer, was music. It just made sense to have a concert with all my friends and also some of my favorite musicians.B: So you just reach out to the homies, like, “Hey, it’s my birthday. Let’s jam!?”  Mikey: I basically put a bunch of calls to some of my favorite people to watch play, and they all said, “Yes.” It started like that and has evolved into something I love. We give the proceeds to charity when we do it. What it’s become now is sort of a reflection of my year that just passed in terms of the relationships I’ve made, the relationships I’ve nurtured, the people that I’ve played with, the music that I’ve heard and enjoyed. Also, when it comes down to song selection, people might not know the actual ins and outs, but the songs I pick are definitely a reflection of what has been going on in my life.Ultimately, it really is just about me wanting to play with my friends. I love seeing all my friends when they come to these birthday shows. The whole thing is just a reflection of my life in front of me—in people and in music. I want everyone else to see what that means and also, in a way, to give back to the people who have made it possible. Every person involved has played a part in me being there on stage that day, on my birthday. I am turning 32 this year, so everyone that will be there has been a part of it in either a small or huge way. All of them are important and that’s what this is about. Every person has had an effect on me, and I want them to be there, see it, and take part in it.B: How do you lay it all out? Who plays on what songs and how will the evening roll out?Mikey: This year, I am trying to do something completely different than the super jam idea. Like you said, you see a lot of those, and most of the time they are good but sometimes, they are garbage. I’m trying to do something completely different this year, and I have fourteen of some of the best musicians on the scene and even in the world. You know, this year, Jen Hartswick, Ryan Montbleau, Cris Jacobs—the cast is unbelievable.   I thought it might be sensory overload if all fourteen were onstage at the same time, the entire time. I’m kind of breaking people off and putting together combinations of music that you will never see anywhere else. When else are you going to see Cris Jacobs playing cigar box guitar with Jen Hartswick singing, you know?   B: Wow. That sounds mouth-watering. Those are gonna be some special combos. Mikey: It’s just going to be sometimes as few as three of them on stage, you know. It’s almost like a festival but in one concert. It’s going to be something completely unique, and I’m honored that everyone has said yes and is into the idea. It’s going to be really, really dope. Like I said, no one has done anything exactly like this before, especially with the super jam idea.   B: You’ve referenced musicians on the gig who you don’t get together with very often. Conversely, you’ve also tapped three cats from Turkuaz—Shira, Sammi, and Craig. They are a part of your life on a daily basis, and they are a part of the art that you make on the regular. Can you speak on your relationship with them, and what they bring to the table outside of ‘Kuazology?Mikey: There’s a real aspect of battle-tested trust, and I know they’re going to execute. I know Craig is working on a lot of material and knows it really well, and I know I can trust Shira and Sammi to learn a lot of material and that they’ll execute it really well. That’s really important to me. Also, I love performing with them. Craig and I, in Turkuaz, we are sort of buddies on the road. I mean, obviously, everyone in the band is a close friend, but Craig is just naturally my buddy. We are both from the Great Lakes region, and we are both similar kind of musicians. We have similar tastes in a lot of music, and having Craig there sort of puts me at ease. Same with Sammi and Shira. I think that they both are excellent performers, and I just know that their part of the stage will be handled and that I don’t have to worry about it.  I always, especially in Turkuaz, see the stage breakdown as sort of like the Titanic. The front of the stage is all of the waiters and waitresses wearing tuxedos and white gloves. The back of the stage—where Taylor and I are, Craig is back there, Chris is back there—that is like the engine room where guys are shoveling coal into a giant furnace. You know, that’s how I see that. I have a certain amount of trust in Sammi and Shira that the front line is handled and everything goes off without a hitch. They are pros, they are great musicians, and I really trust them to execute that for me, you know?  B: Let’s wrap it up. Here are two parting shots. One, it’s your birthday. For a present, if you could get a drum lesson from any drummer in history, dead or alive, who would it be and why?  Mikey: It would have been Clyde Stubblefield. I mean he is the “funky drummer.” If I could have got a lesson and just sat there and watched him play “Funky Drummer” or any of his grooves, I mean, that is the source right there. In my many conversations with Sput (Robert Searight; Snarky Puppy/Ghost Note), Sput talked to me about Clyde—about what he was like, watching him play, and him being a mentor. I think that Clyde had a lot he was willing to share, and that is someone that I would’ve wanted to study with.   B: Would you like to deliver a personal message to the fans?  Mikey: I think it’s really important that our fans know how much we appreciate them. It’s when things like Red Rocks and Bonnaroo and these big gigs happen that everyone says “Congrats,” and “You are all working so hard, it’s all paying off.” That doesn’t mean shit if your fans aren’t there. We don’t get there without our fans, without people that love your music and will travel to go see you. It’s really important for me, for our fans, for my fans, all fans of live music in general, to know how much it means that they spend their money, time, and energy on us and with us. It means more than I could ever give justice.  I try every time I play a show to give fans as much back as I feel that they are giving me. I think it’s really important that we have a round of applause for the audience. They need to know how important they are, at least to me. This isn’t just bands doing something, this is all of us doing something together. It’s a live music scene—that means everyone on one side of the stage and the other side of the stage, we are all doing this together. The more we can feel like a family and a community, the more we can have awesome things and make positive change. I love our fans. I love my fans. I love fans of live music.B: Rest assured it shows. The feels are mutual Mikey! Thanks for your time, energy, wisdom, and candor.  And of course, the funk! Happy Birthday, brother! Don’t miss out on Michelangelo Carubba’s 3rd annual all-star birthday bash next Friday at Brooklyn Bowl! You can snag tickets here.Words: B.Getzlast_img read more
