HT faves Umphrey’s McGee wrapped up a two-night stand in Southern California last night with a show chock full of classic material. In fact, outside of the There’s No Crying in Mexico instrumental that kicked off the evening and a cover debut, the newest song Umphrey’s performed at the West Hollywood House of Blues on Saturday was debuted was back in 2004 (Plunger – July 8th, 2004). Using the “Average Song Vintage” stat we employ for Phish setlists in our “The Skinny” columns (add the year each song was debuted and divide it by the total number of songs performed), the Average Song Vintage for last night’s show was 2003 – an unheard of figure for UM.

Mixed in among the many heavy hitters Umphrey’s employed on Saturday night was a rap cover featuring one of the band’s good friends. Longtime UM family member Clayton Halsey helped out with vocals from side-stage on the Chicago sextet’s first-ever performance of I Got Love by Nate Dogg which took place in the middle of Der Bluten Kat. I Got Love is the opening track of the late Nate Dogg’s second studio album – Music and Me. The Der Bluten Kat > I Got Love > Der Bluten Kat segment was one of three song sandwiches utilized by UM last night as they also worked Anchor Drops and Wappy Sprayberry between the beginning and ending of Bridgeless in the first set and fit Plunger, Hangover and The Triple Wide between the beginning and ending of Divisions as the bulk of set two.

The members of moe. and Strangefolk have a long history together that dates back to the ’90s, when both bands shared the bill at a number of shows. Last Thanksgiving moe. guitarist Al Schnier opened for the reunited version of Strangefolk at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. Al wound up sitting in with the band on a pair of songs each night that included moe. originals Moth and Mexico. Strangefolk was invited to perform at moe.’s Snoe.down Festival which is taking place this weekend in Vermont. Last night in Rutland moe. welcomed the Strangefolk Duo of Jon Trafton and Reid Genauer to guest on a two-song segment that brought their first set at Spartan Arena in a close.

For the first song of the two-song guest spot, Genauer led Trafton and moe. through a cover of Up On Cripple Creek by The Band. Genauer and Trafton stuck around for the Mexico first set closer. moe. started the day much earlier with a set at Killington’s Bear Mountain before bringing Saturday’s action to a close with two sets at Spartan Arena that followed Strangefolk’s performance at the same venue.
Here’s audio of Genauer and Trafton collaborating with moe. for Up On Cripple Creek…

A special Allman Brothers Band aftershow took place at the intimate environs of Lucille’s within BB King’s Blues Club in New York City last Saturday night. The show was billed as “Colonel Bruce Hampton & Friends,” the Colonel was backed by a band that included AJ Ghent on eight-string lap steel guitar and Jez Graham on keys. Hampton welcomed some of his guitarist friends to guest during his set and they each played a legendary axe.

Wilco guitarist Nels Cline was the Colonel’s first guest at the intimate show. Cline played Duane Allman’s Goldtop Les Paul which was on loan from the Big House museum in Macon, Georgia. Nels and Ghent took turns layering licks in Space Is The Place. Later in the evening Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes stopped by and jammed with the band. Haynes also sported Duane’s famous axe.

There was once a time when moe. played as many five minute songs as they did 15 minute jammers. When the band was first starting up, there was a raw element to their sound that was as influenced by the likes of Jane’s Addiction as it was by the Grateful Dead. One band the members of moe. bonded over in the Albany house they called home in the mid ’90s was Camper Van Beethoven. In 1995 moe. started covering the opening track from CVB’s 1986 self-titled album – Good Guys and Bad Guys.
For nearly a year Good Guys and Bad Guys was a staple of moe.’s live show as the group played it 21 times in 1995 and then seven more times in the first half of 1996. After that Good Guys and Bad Guys became a rarity as it only showed up once in 1997, three times in 1998, five times in 1999, six times between 2000 and 2004 and only twice since. This morning moe. dusted off the Camper Van Beethoven cover during their acoustic VIP Brunch set at Killington’s Wobbly Barn as part of Snoe.down.
Thanks for the efforts of Taylor C. we can listen to the bust out just hours later…
Let’s look back at a version of Good Guys and Bad Guys featuring members of Cracker including Camper Van Beethoven’s David Lowery, the man who originally sang the song, from Langerado ’04…

On April 2 Rilo Kiley will release the cleverly named RKives, a 16-track collection of rarities, B-sides and unreleased songs. With the Los Angeles-based act technically still in the midst of a dreaded “extended hiatus,” they turned to the power of crowd-sourcing by posting a message on their website asking fans to upload their “favorite personal Rilo Kiley video clip, band footage, created animation, etc.” in order to help make the video for the record’s lead single Let Me Back In.
Jenny Lewis & Co. have now uploaded the finished product for the tune, which longtime fans may know better as I Love L.A., supplementing the submissions with their own behind-the-scenes tour footage. Let’s check out the results…Leave A Comment
The members of von Grey stuck out like a sore thumb amidst the thousands of bands that descended upon Austin for the music portion of SXSW – not because of some lavish clothes they were wearing or wild stage antic, but for the sheer fact that their oldest member is barely old enough to vote while their youngest isn’t even a teenager yet.
Hailing from Atlanta, the quartet consists of sisters Kathryn, Annika, Fiona and Petra and may be best described as a teenage version of the Dixie Chicks or what would have happened if Hanson grew up listening to Mumford & Sons. The talented four-piece act, who describe their sound as alt.folk, deftly play a dazzling array of acoustic instruments from guitar to fiddle to mandolin to banjo to lap steel, and have a stage presence of a band that has been gigging for years – thanks in part to the fact that they all started playing music beginning at the at tender age of five-years-old.
Last fall von Grey released their self-titled EP, which was produced by Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Gaslight Anthem). The five-song effort provides a snap shot of what these young ladies can do – showcasing their harmony-laden, radio-friendly wise-beyond-their-years sound. Last month the sister act stopped by the Ed Sullivan Theater to make their network television debut, where they performed Coming For You on the Late Show With David Letterman. Let’s check it out…Leave A Comment
After a hiatus of nearly two years, The Black Crowes returned to the stage last night in Manchester, England. The group, which now features multi-instrumentalist Jackie Greene, turned in a 2:20 set that focused on their best-known songs from throughout their career. Here’s the setlist…
Mixed among the many originals The Black Crowes played last night were a handful of covers, two of which were debuts. The band worked Joe South’s Hush into Hard To Handle during the encore and unleashed their version of Medicated Goo by Traffic towards the beginning of the show. Medicated Goo was originally released by Traffic as a single in 1968 and subsequently appeared on the group’s Last Exit album in 1969 in the middle of a period where the band had broken up.
An audience recording of last night’s show has surfaced allowing us to hear TBC’s version of Medicated Goo. Black Crowes guitarists Jackie Greene and Rich Robinson work brilliantly off each other during the intro and the solo section towards the end of the tune. Take a listen and see if you agree…

HT faves Wilco have been off the road for five months (with the exception of a one-off gig at Vail in December) which for many bands isn’t a particularly long time but for these road warriors that much time off is a rarity. Jeff Tweedy and Co. kicked off a three-week tour of Australia, New Zealand and Japan yesterday with a set at West Coast Blues ‘N’ Roots Festival in Freemantle, Australia.
[Photo by Mikael Jorgensen]
The group delivered an 11-song set that included four songs from 2011′s The Whole Love, an album which hadn’t been released when Wilco last visited Australia. Here’s the complete setlist…
Set: Art of Almost, I Might, Ashes of American Flags, Born Alone, Laminated Cat (aka Not For The Season), Jesus Etc., Handshake Drugs, Impossible Germany, Dawned On Me, Shot in the Arm, I’m The Man Who Loves You
[Setlist via Wilco Facebook Page]
In other Wilco-related news, Tweedy recently penned a letter to the editor of his hometown paper voicing his support for same-sex marriage. The Wilco front man feels that “everyone should be able to marry the person he or she loves and enjoy the dignity and respect that comes with that commitment.” You can read the letter in its entirety on the Belleville News-Democrat’s website.Leave A Comment

Throughout the early part of the aughts Devendra Banhart was best known as the face of the of “freak-folk” movement, thanks in part to the fact that he looked as if he had stepped straight out of the Haight circa 1967. Earlier this month the talented singer-songwriter released his eighth studio album and debut for Nonesuch Records – Mala. The 14-track effort features Banhart’s familiar mix of wispy folk and Tropicalia sounds, with bits of synth-y dance beats. Banhart will kick off an extensive world tour in support of the record on May 4 with a gig at the Belly Up in Aspen. The tour also includes a high profile appearance at the Sasquatch Music Festival in Quincy, Washington on May 24, as well as a pair of shows opening for Neil Young & Crazy Horse in Italy.
If you’re not into a night with Mr. Banhart’s brand of psych-folk, then maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…
One month into their famed Europe ’72 tour, the Grateful Dead performed at the Bickershaw Festival in Greater Manchester, England on May 7th, 1972. Noted as one of the “wettest festivals of all-time” the conditions were extremely muddy and uncomfortable for concertgoers. That didn’t stop the Dead from delivering two powerhouse sets at their lone festival appearance of the historic tour.
Yesterday, a six-minute video that includes an interview with Jerry Garcia about the state of the festival grounds and grainy footage shot by fans of the site and the band performing, all with the soundtrack of Mr. Charlie from that fateful evening, surfaced on YouTube. Let’s check it out…Leave A Comment
As previously reported, The Black Crowes returned to the stage after a nearly two year hiatus on Sunday night in Manchester, England. The band is currently working in new member Jackie Greene, so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that they didn’t mix up the setlist too much for their second show back, which took place last night at The Academy in Birmingham, England.

Chris and Rich Robinson and Co. offered five songs on Monday that they didn’t perform at the tour opener on Sunday: Ballad in Urgency and She Gave Good Sunflower from 1994′s Amorica, Appaloosa and Been a Long Time (Waiting on Love) from 2009′s Before the Frost…Until the Freeze and a cover of Delaney & Bonnie’s Poor Elijah – Tribute to Robert Johnson Medley. The sextet even kept most of the pacing the same between first two shows of the Lay Down With Number 13 Tour. For example, the same four songs opened both gigs. Hopefully by the time they hit the states they’ll mix it up more.
Here’s the setlist from Birmingham with tour debuts in bold…
Set: Jealous Again, Thick N Thin, Hotel Illness, Medicated Goo, Ballad in Urgency, Wiser Time, She Talks to Angels, Appaloosa, Whoa Mule, Morning Song, Hi Head Blues, She Gave Good Sunflower, Soul Singing, Thorn in My Pride, Remedy, Hard to Handle/Hush
Encores: Poor Elijah/Robert Johnson, Been a Long Time

Earlier this month the lineup for this year’s Forecastle Festival, which takes place in Louisville from July 12 – 14, was announced and included HT faves The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Jim James, The Avett Brothers and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Today, festival organizers have revealed a batch of additions to the lineup headed up by Robert Plant and his Sensational Space Shifters ensemble.
Boys Noize, Sarah Jarosz and Inc have also been added to the Forecastle Festival lineup. Plant, who recently opened an Australian Tour with a set filled with Led Zeppelin classics, has only played two North American gigs with his latest band since forming the group early last year. Before heading to Louisville, Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters will perform at The Gorge for JamBase Live.Leave A Comment
Last year Superfly Presents of Bonnaroo fame tried something completely different by bringing a festival that mixed food, beverages, music and culture to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. For many attendees, their visits to the fest – dubbed “Great GoogaMooga” – were filled with extremely lengthy waits for food and insane crowds. Event organizers even refunded money to those who paid for the Extra Mooga V.I.P. packages after food and drinks ran out with a quickness. That hasn’t stopped Superfly from trying again as they have just announced that GoogaMooga 2013 will take place in Prospect Park from May 17 – 19.
The music lineup features Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips, The Darkness, Matt & Kim, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, De La Soul and about 15 other acts. Superfly has recruited 85 restaurants to sell food at the event, up from last year’s tally of 75. Event organizers realize there were issues last year and have a few ideas, “We will be expanding the festival’s general admission footprint, increasing points of sale and improving transaction speeds for food and beverage purchases,” Superfly founder Jonathan Mayers told the New York Times.
While tickets to Friday and Saturday will be free to those entering a lottery between Monday, April 1st and Wednesday, April 3rd, you’ll have to pony up $49.50 for Friday’s action which includes performances by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips and The Darkness. Those purchasing tickets to Friday will get their choice of complimentary tickets to Saturday or Sunday. For more info head to the GoogaMooga website. Here’s the full music and food lineups…

Today, a bevy of additional performers have been announced.
Mike McCready, guitarist for Pearl Jam, will team up with Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell to perform with Rock Hall inductees Heart. Usher will honor Quincy Jones with a performance. Director Spike Lee and musical legend Harry Belafonte will pay tribute to Public Enemy. Singer Carole King will perform for Lou Adler, Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell will induct Heart, Cheech & Chong will present Adler with his award, while Jackson Browne and John Fogerty will perform with Randy Newman.
Those of us who can’t attend in person will have to wait a month to see the festivities as HBO will air the induction ceremonies on Saturday, May 18 at 9PM ET/PT.Leave A Comment
It is frustrating finding the perfect car mount for my phone. I’ve been through a bunch of them in the last couple of years and there’s always been a trade-off. Either, I buy a mount specifically meant for my phone which will cost way too much and be obsolete in six months when I inevitably get a new phone. Or, I buy a universal one that doesn’t quite fit the phone perfectly and is a hassle to use.
I finally found Tylt’s “Capio” universal car mount and I couldn’t be happier. It works with practically any phone, is reasonably priced and couldn’t be easier or quicker to use. I am constantly in and out of rental cars and do a ton of driving. The Capio has been a a Godsend with powerful suction and adhesion to any car surface that I have tried it on keeping my phone handy for navigation, speaker phone calls and music streaming. Read on to learn about this cool car mount and how to win one!
I like this mount for a few reasons. So many of the mounts that I used have crappy suction and a difficult time adhering to different surfaces – especially roughly textured plastics and other non-glass surfaces. This suction will easily stick not only to your windshield but to just about any other surface you try. I’ve been in and out of a bunch of rental cars with the Capio and have never had an issue sticking it exactly where I want it.
The cool thing about the Capio though is the sticky surface of the phone cradle. It adheres to the back of your phone with a simple press and then releases easily when you want it to. It makes getting your phone on and off incredibly fast without having to fit into cradles, slots, arms or other types of mounts. The adhesive of course leaves no residue or stickiness on your phone. It’s the same adhesive that’s used on the Capta that I reviewed last year. If it starts to lose its stickiness, simply wash with clean water and let it air dry and it’ll be good as new.
The Capio has a ball joint at its neck that can swivel to either portrait or landscape orientation. It is real easy to swivel and twist to just the perfect angle for you and your car and lock it into place. I’ve used this primarily with my Galaxy SIII but have also tested it with an LG Nexus 4 and an iPhone 4. In all three cases the Capio kept a great grip on the phone. I never had an issue with the weight of the phone being too much for the pad to hold it securely. However, the device does come with optional support arms that clip onto to the faceplate that can help hold heavier phones. Perhaps people with really heavy protective cases on their phones would have to use these.
There’s not much else to say about a simple device like this. It just works and mounts on both horizontal or vertical surfaces and holds just about any phone extremely well.

How they play and play for that happy day…for that happy day…
Superhuman Happiness: Hands
Superhuman Happiness’s revelatory full-length debut is part dance party, part afrobeat-tinged indie pop, part loosey-goosey funk improv. In all cases, it’s just the right part: a perfect blend. I triple-dog-dare you not to smile while listening to this album, let alone sing, clap and boogie should the mood strike you. This is the well-mixed margarita for the spring and summer to come, a delicious gulp of sunshine. Are you ready?
Elephant Stone: Elephant Stone
The number of ways a band can be influences by the Beatles is probably close to infinite. Elephant Stone seems to operate in the alternate universe where the Fab Four was a one-album wonder, their history beginning and ending with Revolver. The results are pretty freakin’ great: heady songwriting, raffish guitar, a toke or two of psychedelia and yes, even a tasteful dollop of brain-sifting sitar throughout. A terrific debut all around.Leave A Comment
