first_imgBack in July, moe. had surprising news for fans with the announcement that the group would be going on an indefinite hiatus following bassist Rob Derhak‘s diagnosis with oropharyngeal cancer. After performing their remaining shows together in July, Derhak began his cancer treatment in early August. Following the announcement of the diagnosis, the larger jam community banned together around the bassist in support, with fans starting a fundraiser to cover some of Derhak’s medical expenses. While moe. did perform at LOCKN’ this year for their scheduled phil.moe set with Phil Lesh, his bandmates made sure that their bassist would be there in spirit, equipping a tiny robot with a GoPro so that Derhak could check out the action onstage during the highly anticipated set from the comfort of his own home.While On Leave, moe. Bassist Rob Derhak Attended LOCKN’ Via This Tiny rob.otToday, Rob has shared an update on his health as he hits the midway point of his chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Happily, the moe. bassist notes, “I’m feeling pretty good all in all, and they say I’m looking really good for someone at this point.” During his update post on Facebook, he also took the time to thank his wife and brother in addition to the support of friends and his larger Famoe.ly. We love you, Rob, and can’t wait to see you back on the stage! Hi Friends,I’m on my way to Boston for my daily radiation treatment. I thought I’d give you an update on how things are going.

first_imgLegendary piano player and pioneer of rock and roll Fats Domino passed away on Tuesday at the age of 89. Known for his pounding piano and nonchalant vocals, the New Orleans musician died of natural causes at 3:30am, according to Mark Bone, chief investigator with the Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, of the coroner’s office. Mr. Domino had almost 40 Top 40 hits through the 1950s and 1960s, including “Blueberry Hill,” “Ain’t It a Shame,” “I’m Walkin’,” “Blue Monday” and “Walkin’ to New Orleans.”Recognized by Elvis Presley as his predecessor, Domino came second in history with a whopping 65 million singles sold and 23 gold records during that time period. “A lot of people seem to think I started this business,” Presley told Jet magazine in 1957. “But rock ’n’ roll was here a long time before I came along. Nobody can sing that music like colored people. Let’s face it: I can’t sing it like Fats Domino can. I know that.”As one of the few legends remaining, Domino and his legacy will preserve through the music of New Orleans and through the torches of rock an roll.Watch Fats Domino perform “The Fat Man” at the Universal Amphitheatre in 2012:Rest In Peace, Fats Domino!last_img read more

first_imgOn Thursday, November 30th, a new supergroup dubbed J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) made its debut at Philadelphia’s Ardmore Music Hall. The project is led by Aaron Johnston, drummer and founding member of Brazilian Girls and current member of David Byrne‘s touring band, and features a rotating cast of musical characters at each performance. For the project’s highly anticipated debut, Johnston tapped keyboardist/programmer Borahm Lee (Break Science/Pretty Lights Live Band), saxophonist Ryan Zoidis (Lettuce/Shady Horns), and bassist Nate Edgar (The Nth Power) for the collaborative project.Clocking in around 100 minutes for their headlining set, the quartet played through four compositions that blended electronic-music elements with a diverse range of genres from jazz, afrobeat, dub, funk, and more to create a “live music abstraction,” taking listeners on a first-class intergalactic journey that needs to be heard by any true music head. The group explored artists such Eddie Henderson, Bob James‘ “Nautilus”, and Fela Kuti, while taking long detours into the far-out deepest reaches of the musical universe.As Johnston told Live For Live Music during an interview last fall about J.E.D.I.,J.E.D.I. is an idea I’ve been wanting to try for maybe a year or so. The concept is virtually a sonic change—still very much keeping the music live and interactive but creating more dynamics between the electronic and the acoustic world. I encourage all the musicians to bring their electronic “toys” without losing the beautiful tone and tambour they already have developed and perfected on their acoustic instrument. I also want to grab musicians whom I believe are advanced and are ready to push the envelope.Because all of the musicians are such accomplished players, they’re naturally busy with various projects. Therefore, I expect to have different configurations over time. This is only the beginning. The plan is to build a consistent sound and overall experience for the audience and have a rotating cast of members that all are on the same playing field and want to expand the music together. The band could be a three-piece or it could be ten or more people on stage one day. And yes to expanding into the “jam” realm.” There are some truly incredible musicians in this scene.Thanks to Bud Fulginiti, you can get a glimpse into the madness of J.E.D.I.’s debut performance below. Don’t miss J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) featuring Aaron Johnston (Brazilian Girls/David Byrne), Marc Brownstein (the Disco Biscuits), Ryan Zoidis (Lettuce), & special guests Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds), Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce), and Shira Elias (Turkuaz) at The Maison in New Orleans on Sunday, April 29th, during Jazz Fest.

first_imgOn Saturday, the beloved tribute act Pink Talking Fish closed out their spring tour with a triumphant hometown show at Boston, Massachusetts’ Paradise Rock Club. The performance saw the band in truly proper form, paying tribute to Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Phish with a hugely energetic show. To celebrate the band’s homecoming, the group had a number of special surprises in store for the Boston crowd, including sit-ins from Russ Lawton of Trey Anastasio Band and Dave Grippo and Carl Gerhard of Giant Country Horns.Russ Lawton, most recently, has been on tour with Trey Anastasio and bassist Tony Markellis as Trey Anastasio Trio. Following longtime Trey Anastasio Band keyboardist Ray Paczkowski’s surgery to remove a brain tumor, the scheduled Trey Anastasio Band spring tour was canceled, instead replaced with a trio tour, marking the ensemble’s first full run since 1999. Furthermore, the trio tour was particularly timely given that the shows coincided with the 20th anniversary of Trey Anastasio Trio’s famed “8 Foot Florescent Tubes” show at Winooski, Vermont’s Higher Ground on April 17th.As for Giant Country Horns, the horn group has been a longstanding staple with Phistory, with the group joining Phish on the road for what was affectionately known as “The Horns Tour” in 1991. Alto saxophonist, Dave “The Truth” Grippo holds the honor of being one of Vermont quartet’s most frequent guests on stage, though his Giant Country Horns bandmates like Carl Gerhard and Russ Remington have similarly graced stages with Phish multiple times.Russ Lawton was the first sit-in of the evening, joining Pink Talking Fish for a take on a song he wrote with Trey Anastasio, the fan-favorite “Sand”—while Lawton was featured during the number, Dave Grippo made his first appearance of the evening, coming out to play cowbell for the tune. During Pink Talking Fish’s second set, Grippo returned to the stage, this time with his Giant Country Horn bandmate, trumpeter Carl Gerhard, for renditions of “Cavern” and “Julius”.You can watch a video of Pink Talking Fish’s energetic rendition of Talking Head’s “Psycho Killer” below, which was recorded by Renee Gould and provided by Pink Talking Fish, and stay tuned for more videos of the standout collaborations from Pink Talking Fish’s spring tour closer!

first_imgBrooklyn-based nine-piece funk powerhouse Turkuaz has released an acoustic video for “European Festivity Nightmare”, off of the band’s 2015 Digitonium release. Recorded during a recent Sugarshack Session in Miami, FL, the video is the second to be released from the “unplugged” session, following the release of Turkuaz’s bluegrass-inspired “Life In The City” video.Guitarist Dave Brandwein explains, “We were hesitant to do this at first when we were told it was an ‘unplugged’ session. Our live show is very loud, in-your-face, and most of all, ELECTRIC! – in every sense of the word. But it ended up being an inspiring challenge and opportunity for us to do something totally new. For the first cut from the session, we decided to embrace that challenge to the fullest, and do ‘Life in the City’ in a completely different style. It worked surprisingly well, and we had a fine time doing it!”Watch Turkuaz’s new acoustic take on “European Festivity Nightmare” below:Turkuaz – “European Festivity Nightmare” [Live Acoustic][Video: Sugarshack Sessions]Turkuaz continues their spring tour on Thursday, April 11th, with a show at The Haunt in Ithaca, NY, followed by performances in Washington, D.C.

first_imgKing Crimson is currently preparing for a big “outreach year” in honor of their 50th anniversary. In addition to an extensive world tour, the band has announced a number of special anniversary releases.At a press event on Saturday, the band’s manager, David Singleton, also announced that King Crimson’s entire 13-album studio discography will soon be available to stream via Spotify. The King Crimson catalog will appear on Spotify beginning on June 10th—the day the band kicks off their world tour in Leipzig, Germany.“The reason we’ve been slow on Spotify is that, unlike apparently the whole of the rest of the industry that’s been telling us that physical is dead, we’ve had rising physical sales for probably the last 10 years,” Singleton explained, according to The Rolling Stone. “But that argument was valid for a while, and it isn’t anymore.”Check out a list of King Crimson’s upcoming world tour dates below.

first_imgWith all the talk of whether or not the highly-publicized Woodstock 50 event will actually take place this summer, it’s easy to forget that the original 1969 music festival is still a pretty interesting topic amongst American historians and music fans. Earlier this week, the latest documentary on the original Woodstock premiered as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, and is scheduled for a wide release later on this year.Titled, Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation, the new documentary directed by Barak Goodman is the latest attempt at taking fans back to the late-1960s with an in-depth look at the event that helped define the youth culture of the era, in addition to changing the future of American entertainment in the decades to follow.Related: John Fogerty Shares Doubt Surrounding Ongoing Woodstock 50 Drama In New InterviewThe film’s synopsis reads as the following,“Structured faithfully around audio testimony from attendees, ‘Woodstock: Three Days That Defined a Generation’ focuses not just on how it all came to be, despite enormous challenges, but how it felt for it to happen: an endless traffic backup was elevated to a communal experience, and a food shortage became a collaboration rather than a disaster. The incredible performances spotlighted in the film, from Jimi Hendrix to Joan Baez to Crosby, Stills, and Nash—form the backdrop to what is fundamentally the audience’s story. Woodstock takes us all back to a time and a place now captured in a time capsule, but also reminds us of the immediacy that love, music and shared experience can elicit.”The film mixes archival and home-shot video footage in addition to audio interviews from fans who were at the 1969 festival. The film also documents the role that the festival played within society at large in America, which at the time, was deeply troubled and divided with the then-ongoing Vietnam War. Fans can watch the film’s official trailer below.Woodstock: Three Days That Defined A Generation – Official Trailer[Video: PBS Distribution]The film is set to screen again at the Regal Cinemas Battery Park this Saturday, May 4th, beginning at 2:30 p.m. For fans outside of New York City who can’t make it, the film will arrive in select theaters across the country throughout May and June. The documentary is also set for a wide television release when it debuts on PBS on Tuesday, August 6th, at 9:00 p.m. ET, as part of the network’s “American Experience” series.

Hardwood floors, exposed brick… Not a South End condo description, but a Stoughton dorm! Chelsea Celistan (center) and roommate Danielle Lussi (left) have lots of decorating to do. Stephanie Mitchell, Kris Snibbe, Justin Ide/Harvard Staff Photographers College Dean Evelynn Hammonds officially welcomed freshmen and their families to Harvard Thursday (Aug. 26) during a ceremony at Sanders Theatre, and vowed to “to help prepare students for the transitions to come and move them from a position of receiving and learning knowledge, to serving, teaching and leading others.”The standing-room-only crowd filled the historic hall and cheered as the College band kicked off the afternoon’s program — part of Opening Days 2010 — with a rendition of “Ten Thousand Men of Harvard” and other traditional school fight songs. Soon after, Hammonds took to the podium and lauded the weather, suddenly warm and sunny after “four solid days of rain.”The dean described her role at Harvard, saying that it was her responsibility to “anticipate the challenges and envision the possibilities of Harvard College and to leverage every available resource of this great institution to realize our full potential to shape tomorrow’s leaders — your sons and daughters — and to challenge them intellectually, socially, and morally.” She pledged to promote the development of the University’s undergraduates.“I accepted the job of dean of Harvard College to give my very best energy to making this institution help all students reach their fullest potential,” she said, adding that, as the University’s mission states, “Education at Harvard should liberate students to explore, to create, to challenge, and to lead.”Hammonds also sought to reassure parents anxious about leaving their offspring in Harvard’s care.“I hope you’ll trust that many of us are working hard — including me — to ensure that your sons and daughters are well supported here at the College,” she said. “It is our job, and we all take this responsibility very seriously.”Thomas A. Dingman, dean of freshmen, followed Hammonds’ remarks with some words about the challenges facing families and students. He told a story about Harvard alumnus and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, who once boarded a train, only to find he’d lost his ticket. When the conductor recognized Holmes and said that the jurist could simply mail in his ticket when it turned up, Holmes replied, “You don’t understand. I don’t know where I’m going!” Dingman said new students too would have moments when they didn’t know where they were going. He promised that Harvard would do its best to guide them.Margaret McKenna, a psychiatrist at Harvard University Health Services and an alumna of the College, wrapped up the program with advice gathered from 20 years of working with students. She told parents they would likely experience a range of emotions — from relief to grief — as they dropped their children off at school and urged them to “remain nurturing while promoting ever-greater autonomy” for them.“Be available,” she told mothers and fathers. “Be realistic. Don’t panic.Be patient. And listen, listen, listen.”New Harvard parents Deborah and Francis Burke of Walpole, Mass., appreciated McKenna’s remarks.“It’s always helpful to be reminded to take a step back and let your child work through things,” said Deborah. “These are important years for a child to develop intellectually and academically.”Describing himself as an “empty nester as of 20 minutes ago,” Francis Burke said he was excited about the opportunities Harvard would offer his son, Steven.“The sky’s the limit,” he said.
