Yeah Yeah Yeahs just unveiled the video for the first single off their upcoming album Mosquito. The song is both subtle and big. On one hand, a simple keyboard melody carries the song along for its first half, but soon it transitions to a full gospel choir belting away much like a modern Like a Prayer.
The video stars British model and actress Lily Cole who you might recognize from her assortment of fantasy/sci-fi roles like Snow White and Huntsman or The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.Leave A Comment
Back on August 9th, 2010 the San Francisco Giants honored the 15th anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s death by hosting “Jerry Garcia Tribute Night” at AT&T Park. The tradition continued in subsequent years as “Grateful Dead Night” in 2011 and “Jerry Garcia’s 70th Birthday Celebration” in 2012. This year the Giants will welcome Deadheads to the ballpark for a special “Grateful Dead Tribute Night” on Monday, August 5th at AT&T Park when the home team takes on the Milwaukee Brewers.
Here’s a rundown of what to expect that night via the team’s website…
The Giants invite you to come to the ballpark to celebrate one of the most legendary and coveted groups associated with the San Francisco music scene, The Grateful Dead! Your special event ticket package includes a ticket to the Monday evening game versus the Milwaukee Brewers, and a collector-edition Grateful Dead-themed Giants item! Members of the original band, as well as members of the Garcia family will be in attendance and participating in special pre-game components, such as the National Anthem! Proceeds from every special event ticket sold will be donated to various non-profits near and dear to the band’s heart. This special event is always one of the biggest of the year, and we look forward to your family, friends, and fellow Dead Heads supporting a great cause and celebrating the rich legacy of the Grateful Dead with the San Francisco Giants!
Tickets are available in many different price points through the team’s website.

Last year both myself and HT contributing editor Ryan Dembinsky stumbled upon the music of rock fusion act Tauk independently of each other and we each offered our raves about the instrumental quartet’s inventive sound and relentless live show. In Ryan’s interview with Tauk’s Charlie Dolan that we ran last fall the bassist broke the news that Tauk was entering the studio with producer/engineer Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) to begin work on their first entirely instrumental full-length album. The result of those sessions, the 10-track Homunculus, is set for a April 30th release.
We’re excited to premiere the first single off Homunculus this afternoon – Dead Signal. This song starts off innocently enough like the soundtrack to a spaghetti western before the bass and drums come in. Within 45 seconds the quartet is locked into a silky groove with a futuristic-sounding melody. We love prog-heavy acts that can “swing” and Tauk fits that billing to a T. Check out the debut of Dead Signal…
Tauk will celebrate the release of Homunculus on April 24th at Sullivan Hall in NYC.Leave A Comment
HT faves RAQ return for their first tour in years starting tomorrow at The Paradise in Boston. The run continues on Friday at the Gramercy in NYC and concludes on Saturday at Philadelphia’s Blockley.
For this run, Kung Fu drummer Adrian Tramontano will perform with the band as he did at their lone previous appearance of ’13 at the AURA Music Festival. Speaking of the RAQ’s set at AURA, the festival recently posted a jammed-out Will Run on their official YouTube page. Take a look…
Following the three-show mini-tour, RAQ will play a pair of shows down south in May. On May 9th the quartet will play the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia followed by a May 10th performance at the Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina.Leave A Comment
The rumors were true, The Rolling Stones will headline U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival this June. The Stones are among the 200 (!!) performers who event organizers have announced will play Worthy Farm from June 28 – 30. HT faves Mumford & Sons, Portishead, Tame Impala, The Smashing Pumpkins, Rodriguez, Phoenix and Steve Winwood are just a few of the other acts of note on this year’s lineup.
Here’s a look at the full lineup…
[Click For Full-Size]
The Stones will play Britain’s most famous festival for the first time on Saturday, June 29th. Mick Jagger tweeted, “Can’t wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!” while Keith Richards said, “We all had such a ball last year, and the energy between the band is so good. We can’t wait to play Glastonbury, see you on a summer’s day in England!” Also note former Stones bassist Bill Wyman will perform at Glastonbury with his Rhythm Kings outfit. Tickets sold out before the lineup was unveiled.Leave A Comment
Longtime baseball and Toronto Blue Jays fan Geddy Lee should have quite a month in April. Not only will Rush finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 18th in L.A., but he’ll also get the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the Toronto Blue Jays’ season opener.

Lee, a self-described fantasy baseball addict and collector of baseball memorabilia, will do the deed at Toronto’s Rogers Center this coming Tuesday, April 2nd, when the Blue Jays take on the Cleveland Indians. Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl will induct Rush into the Rock Hall on the 18th.Leave A Comment
UPDATE 6:45PM ET: We came across of a video of the tour debut of Space Captain and added it.
We weren’t the only ones surprised to see The Black Crowes bring on Jackie Greene to fill the lead guitar role that Marc Ford, Paul Stacey and Luther Dickinson handled since 2005 for their new tour which kicked off on Sunday in England. Greene is more known for his singing voice, supporting work and versatility than for his ability to shred. However after listening to a handful of tracks from Sunday and a few videos from Monday, we’ve been very impressed with Greene’s contributions.

Not only does Greene add another dimension with his mandolin playing, but he’s delivered crushing guitar solos in lead-heavy songs such as Jealous Again, Wiser Time and Morning Song. Don’t take our word for it, here’s audio and video of the aforementioned tracks to see if you agree…
And this is only a show or two into what looks to be a busy year of touring for The Black Crowes. Let’s see where he’s at when the band hits America and starts diving deeper into their back catalog.
UPDATE: The Crowes have just finished the third show of the tour which took place at the 02 Academy in Glasgow, Scotland. We came across a video of the band’s tour debut cover of Space Captain by Joe Cocker featuring Jackie on lead guitar and backing vocals…Leave A Comment
You don’t typically equate metal-heads with craft beer, but Iron Maiden is looking to change that. The legendary British metal act has announced that they’ve teamed up with the folks at Robinsons Brewery to produce Trooper Premium British Beer. The 4.7% ABV brew, named after a song off their 1983 album Piece of Mind, features “malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops [that] dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.”
Trooper, which will features Maiden’s iconic mascot Eddie on the label, will be available on cask and in bottles beginning in May. Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson introduces the brew…
Finally, last week we mentioned the passing of Jason Molina, who fronted both Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. As a way of helping his family pay for his medical and funeral costs, a number of bands have joined together to record the tribute album, Weary Engine Blues, for the late singer-songwriter. The record, which will be released on April 24 via Graveface Records, will feature the likes of Mark Kozelek, Will Oldham, Allo Darlin’, Scout Niblett, John Vanderslice, Jeffrey Lewis, Damien Jurado, Jonathan Meiburg (Sheerwater), Hospital Ships and Wave Pictures.Leave A Comment
I was blown away this morning when I was doing my daily search of Phish videos on YouTube and came across a series of mind-blowing videos uploaded (and shot by?) Lawrence Blumenstein in which the cameraman shadows legendary drummer Buddy Miles as he meets and then performs with Phish at Madison Square Garden on October 22, 1996. All in all there are six clips of differing lengths that any Phish fan is going to absolutely love featuring unbelievable backstage footage.
In the first part we see Phish’s manager at the time, John Paluska, rapping with Buddy Miles about Trey’s love of Hendrix and how Buddy came to work with Jimi while in the background you can hear Phish playing It’s Ice for the MSG faithful. In the second part we see Buddy heading towards the stage and then talking with the band during the setbreak and discussing the song selection. For the third part, we see Jon Fishman talk about how much meeting with Miles means to him and we see Buddy pitching Trey on a hip-hop version of All Along The Watchtower.
Part Four brings us into Phish’s backstage practice room where Buddy is teaching Phish and Merl his version of Watchtower. This is the real gem of the series as we get an intimate look at Phish jamming with their heroes and the Watchtower they lay down backstage is almost better than the one they delivered on stage. Then, Part Five puts us right on the tip of the stage for an interesting view of the performance itself that differs greatly from the clip that was unearthed back in December. Finally, as if these videos weren’t incredible enough, Part Six takes us backstage for a heartfelt discussion between Buddy Miles and Trey and Mike. I’ll tell you, in the six years I’ve been doing this I’ve come across some amazing gems people have shared on YouTube, but these videos right here might take the cake. Enough from me, clear out about a half an hour and check out this video playlist…Leave A Comment
snoe.down @ Killington and Rutland, Vermont: March 21 – 24
Photos and Words: Paul Citone
Festival season is upon us as Upstate New York natives moe. rocked out Killington and Rutland, Vermont last weekend at snoe.down 2013, their annual winter music and sports festival. Hosts moe. performed at Killington’s Bear Mountain on Saturday afternoon, while playing the Spartan Arena in Rutland on Friday and Saturday nights. An acoustic VIP brunch at the Wobbly Barn in Killington was the headlining act’s final performance of the weekend. A slew of other artists were on the snoe.down bill as well including HT faves Dumpstaphunk, Strangefolk and Marco Benevento.

Attendees had the chance to take part in various activities surrounding the festival, including a snoe.down special Ski/Ride program offered to guests. Whether you like to ski, snowboard, tube or just listen to the music in one of the cozy lodges, snoe.down had endless options.
Vermont native Mark Pederson, kicked off the festival at the intimate Wobbly Barn on Thursday night. Modern piano man Marco Benevento followed. The Wobbly Barn is a small barn-turned-restaurant with hardwood floors, an intimate stage and three bars. Benevento opened up with This is How it Goes, a track off his newest album, TigerFace and treated the audience to a mix of material from throughout his career.
Friday was the first full day of the festival, and the weather was cold but beautiful. Skiers and snowboarders were out in full force and many of them had no idea that a music festival was taking place. I spoke with many people who were inquiring who was playing, where they were playing and they decided to stay to enjoy the music and vibe.
Floodwood was up first at the noon time slot in the Snoe.Shed Lodge. Floodwood is a moe. side project which includes the band’s Al Schnier on guitar and Vinnie Amico on drums. The rest of the band consists of Zachary Fleitz on bass, Nick Piccininni on fiddle and banjo and Jason Barady of Wooden Spoon on the mandolin. It was a great start of music for the day. They played some cool originals and also a jamgrass version of moe.’s Waiting For The Punchline to close the set.
As bands were playing at different lodges, I drove down to the K1 Lodge to check out Tauk, a New York City band with a distinct blend of jazz, funk and rock. Tauk was formed by four friends in high school, who continued to play gigs throughout their college years. After graduating, the band hit the road in 2010, and they haven’t looked back. Their latest EP is entirely instrumental and they will continue this style with the release of new full-length album next month. The band played tunes from their Pull Factors album, opening with the catchy Home to Me. They played their newest single Dead Signal, which is a total hard rock jam with a funky bass line. Tauk also tossed out an excellent rendition of a Beatles cover which is not easy to pull off as I Want You (She’s So Heavy) got my attention. Instrumental music is such a great way to let the listener interpret the story of the song for themselves. This band is fresh in the music scene, but has already been on some major bills. Look for them at Summer Camp 2013.
Jimkata kicked off the second afternoon set in the Snoe.shed Lodge. The band played in the upstairs portion of the venue with a large window behind them, allowing a view of the mountain and the skiers. The band is a lyric oriented electro-rock group with lots of bass, electric beats and furious drums. They opened with Night Shade, a song from their latest release.The energy was intense. As the band played faster, the crowd screamed and danced along. Jimkata played a great set. The music ended around 5PM, with a short break before the evening events were scheduled to start at the Spartan Arena in Rutland – about a 20 minute drive away.
New Orleans funk rockers Dumpstaphunk opened the evening show at the spacious Spartan Arena. This band never disappoints. They have a relatively new drummer, rocker chick Nikki Glaspie, who was previously a member of Beyonce’s all-female touring band.The man behind the organ, Ivan Neville, runs the show. His skills amazed as his fingers glided effortlessly across the keys. Ivan later sat in with moe. for Happy Hour Hero and a cover of The Meters’ Cissy Strut.
When it was time for moe. to take the stage the crowd went rip roaring nuts. This was our first performance from the headliners of the weekend, so the anticipation was exciting. The band came out in their usual non-showboat way and just started playing. They began with Captain America, followed by an amazing rendition of Recreational Chemistry. Al greeted the crowd with a “Welcome to Snoe.down” and went into the catchy Bring It Back Home. Whenever they play this song near their native New York, it’s an extra special treat as you can feel the meaning of the lyrics. The show had its usual moe. energy with upbeat solos and the band on key. Opium was particularly impressive thanks to its slow bass lead in and powerful riffs. The show ended with a powerhouse take on St. Augustine.
Saturday brought us four inches of new snow on Bear Mountain, where moe. was set to play on the outdoor stage. Eastbound Jesus, from Albany, began the day on the main stage before moe. The band dubs themselves “Americana Bluegrass” and “northern rock.” Check them out, as their mix of banjo, guitar and keyboard is unique. I definitely heard some southern rock influences in their music as well. As this band grows musically, I’m sure we will see much more of them in the future.
When moe. took the stage promptly at 1:45, the crowd was ready and packed with festival attendees and skiers waiting to see what this free show was all about. In a true representation of what Snoe.down is, mother nature started pouring snow on the crowd, adding to the vibe. The band started with Stranger Than Fiction as the white came trickling down. Rob commented about the cold saying, “This is absurd!” Al corrected him by saying ,“Not absurd but awesome.” The last two tunes were the always fun Okayalright and show closer Spine of a Dog. By the end of the set there was a blanket of crisp new snow on the ground.
The second and final night at the Spartan Arena commenced with a set from the recently reunited original lineup of Strangefolk. They are from the Burlington area and have played with moe. several times in the past both with and without Reid Genauer. Strangefolk started things off with a clean version of Elixer. The group’s history with moe. was apparent when Genauer and Jon Trafton were brought onstage during moe.’s first set that night for a beautiful 13 minute jammed-out version of The Band’s Up on Cripple Creek and moe. original Mexico. The Spartan arena staff were very friendly and accommodating, as this whole festival is very well organized.
At 9PM, moe. took the stage and wasted no time jamming into the first tune. Right out of the gate, we got 32 Things. It was the start of a slew of great tunes that night. Closing out set one with the aforementioned Strangefolk sit in, set two began with fan favorite Buster. We got tons of high energy jams – in particular a blazing Brent Black > Mar De-Ma > Brent Black > Meat > Brent Black segment. Closing out the night was the powerful Godzilla, which ended the show on a high note.
Sunday featured the final event of the weekend – the VIP acoustic brunch with moe. at the Wobbly Barn for VIP ticket holders. If you ever come to snoe.down, do not miss this one. The Wobbly Barn is about ½ mile from the base of Killington. The barn opened its doors in December 1962 and was the first nightlife in the area. The barn itself is constructed with various barn pieces collected from ten old barns across New England, hence the wobbly meaning.
Hungover attendees were in the venue ready for a good home cooked meal and a Bloody Mary before moe. took the tiny stage at noon. What could be a better close to a festival than this? It was a Bloody Mary morning for sure. This venue is a hidden gem; if you haven’t been there, check it out. That said, we got a few treats for moe. at their final set of the festival. The band did an awesome rendition of Good Guys and Bad Guys by Camper Van Beethoven, Vinnie Amico handled vocals for a cover of Casey Jones and we were treated to Jim’s evil circus jam Chromatic Nightmare.
After Casey Jones the band was deciding what to play next when some fans screamed “Jim’s Turn”. After a brief discussion, Jim took the mic for the fun rap-driven tune Farmer Ben – a song you’d never expect to see performed acoustic. moe. closed out the show with Gone.
Snoe.down 2013 proved to be everything but your usual festival. If you haven’t been, make this one a priority. Cheers to the moe.rons and see you all at the next show.

This year’s Coachella Festival is once again set to take place over two weekends in April. The first weekend goes down on April 12 – 14, followed by the second weekend of April 19 – 21. For those of us who can’t attend, Coachella has teamed up with YouTube to offer live broadcasts of many performances from that first weekend.
Last year 1.9 million people tuned in to the webcast and watched more than 1.5 million hours of live Coachella performances combined according to event organizers. We’ll post the full webcast schedule once YouTube and Coachella provide it which should be a few days before the first weekend.Leave A Comment
The members of Mumford & Sons have never hid their love and affection for the music of The Band. In fact, the entire group performed as part of the Levon Helm tribute at February’s Grammy Awards. Last week Mumford and Sons debuted a cover of Don’t Do It – a song originally performed by Marvin Gaye that was a staple of The Band’s live sets. The expanded touring version of Mumford & Sons teamed up with Deap Vally to cover the tune at Palacio Vista Alegre in Madrid, Spain.
We dig Marcus Mumford’s vocal delivery but in our opinion the screeching of Deap Vally’s Lindsey Troy leaves something to be desired. That said, overall it’s an enjoyable version of Don’t Do It.

There have been many instances over the past few years when posters featuring purported festival lineups have gone screaming around the internet. In only rare cases have the posters been real.

What is it about today that has led to incredibly cool backstage videos surfacing? On top of the footage of Buddy Miles and Phish we came across this morning, we’ve found a video of The Who’s Roger Daltrey shooting the shit with Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin that was filmed in 2002.
Plant was aboard The Who’s North American Tour in the summer of 2002 as the opening act. This clip shows Robert conversing about all sorts of things with Daltrey and they get so into their conversation that they lose track of time. At the end, Plant’s tour manager alerts him that he’s running late and we see Plant quickly jet the room backstage and head to the stage. Check it out…Leave A Comment
Superfly Presents has teamed with YouTube to webcast the last few Bonnaroo festivals and Outside Lands in 2009, so we were surprised to see that the event organizer has turned to Ustream to simulcast their two biggest events – Bonnaroo and Outside Lands. Ustream will broadcast the events through its website as well as through the Ustream mobile app and mobile website.
This is particularly good news for those who can’t attend Outside Lands as there was just an audio-only webcast available last year and none in 2011 and 2010 for the San Francisco-based event.
Ustream has big plans for the webcasts…
Music fans anywhere in the world will now have the ability to personalize their viewing experience by choosing from unique content across multiple stages, as well as candid fan views from Ustream’s Mobile Mob. Ustream’s Mobile Mob is a new grassroots approach that will empower selected festival attendees to share their unique experiences with other fans, live, via their mobile devices.
“This year, fans will be granted never-seen-before, live access to two of the most important festivals in the U.S. — even in the palms of their hands via mobile devices,” said Chris Blocker, senior vice president of sales and business development for Ustream. “The mix of premium and fly-on-the-wall content powerfully illustrates how bands can become fans and fans can join bands in a seamless social entertainment experience such as this.”
Bonnaroo takes place down on the farm in Manchester, Tennessee from June 13 – 16, while Outside Lands takes place in San Francisco, California’s Golden Gate Park on August 9 – 11. Veteran producer and audio engineer Hank Neuberger has been tapped to orchestrate Ustream’s multi-camera shoots at both events. Expect the schedules to drop a few days before each festival.

In this holiday weekend there’s lots of reruns worth watching on the tube. Start with Prince’s recent guitar-breaking appearance on Fallon tonight and then check out Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples on Austin City Limits tomorrow. Get those DVRs ready for two HT-approved documentaries on Sunday, when Palladia airs a Foo Fighters documentary that left us with a new-found appreciation of Dave Grohl and VH1 Classic broadcasts Kevin Macdonald’s fascinating Marley film.
