As previously reported, Wilco offered a free, live audio and video stream of this evening’s show at the iconic Sydney Opera House in Australia, which took place in the early morning hours for those of us in the states. In another sign that Wilco loves you (baby), the band has archived the entire broadcast for our on-demand viewing pleasure.

One of the many highlights of the Allman Brothers Band’s 40th Anniversary celebration at the Beacon Theatre in 2009 were a pair of performances featuring legendary guitarist Eric Clapton. Clapton and the band will reprise those stellar performances next week at the first of two Crossroads Guitar Festival shows that are planned for Madison Square Garden in New York City on April 12 and 13 according to a Rolling Stone report.
Rolling Stone says Clapton will kickoff the Crossroads fest with an acoustic set on the 12th and then later that night will join the Allman Brothers Band during their headlining set. Eric will headline the second night, but will prepare by sitting in with a few of the acts set to play on the 12th. Top tier tickets are still available for the fest, which features a slew of talented musicians such as Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Booker T. Jones, Citizen Cope and John Mayer.
Here’s a performance of Layla from those 2009 shows…Leave A Comment
Earlier today The Rolling Stones announced a nine-show North American tour and for many the question wasn’t “where is the band playing?” it was “how expensive are tickets?” Mick Jagger discussed the pricing and answered some questions about the coming tour in a Q & A with esteemed music critic Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune.
One question fans had regarding the May/June swing is why didn’t the band book stadiums instead of the much smaller arenas? “The Christmas shows (NYC and London) were arena shows. We got that going, and we’re content with doing that. We’re doing a few outside festival shows in England, but we just feel more in the groove doing arenas,” Jagger told Kot. Mick’s response to Greg’s question about ticketing pricing doesn’t quite leave us with warm fuzzies, “If you really can’t afford a ticket, it’s sad. I feel bad about that. But there are seats at different prices. We have some cheap ones that are quite good, too. There’s a price for everybody I think.” Jagger also revealed that while he’s got new songs ready, they plan to get through the tour before discussing the possibility of entering the studio.
The Stones lead singer also mentioned he’s open to requests via his @MickJagger Twitter feed, explained why Mick Taylor’s touring with them as a guest and espoused loathing for scalpers. Kot’s article is well worth a read and we’re glad Jagger called him out of anyone.Leave A Comment
HT faves The Black Crowes kicked off the first American leg of the Lay Down With Number 13 Tour the past two nights at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. The sextet treated fans to tour debuts of Sting Me and Feathers on Tuesday, while last night’s show didn’t feature any. Among the four songs that The Crowes have played at all seven shows is their 1995 single Wiser Time.
Since its debut Wiser Time has been used by the band as a showcase for its soloists. This tour’s versions have exceeded the 15-minute mark thanks in part to the dynamic work of the newest Black Crowe – Jackie Greene. But in this Wiser Time from Tuesday’s show at The Cap, we’re most impressed with Rich Robinson’s ferocious solo and the finale in which both guitarists shred simultaneously.
Check out this video in which Wiser Time starts at the one-minute mark…Leave A Comment
Following yesterday’s installment of Kidzz where we showed you six-year-old drum prodigy Avery Molek nailing Van Halen’s Hot For Teacher comes another incredibly impressive performance by a youngster. Nine-year-old pianist Owen York ties together over 20 songs in a seamless, mostly improvised medley that he’s shared on YouTube.
Among the tunes York works into his medley are 1348, 2X2 and Nothing Too Fancy by Umphrey’s Mcgee, Zappa’s Peaches En Regalia, Do It Again by Steely Dan and Pink Floyd’s Echoes. Check this out…
Medley: Rocky Theme Song > Mr. PC > 1985 > Blue Skies > Peaches En Regalia > 1348 > Do It Again > 2×2 > Star Wars > Doxy > Cruela DeVil > Linus & Lucy > After The Gold Rush > Echoes > 7 Nation Army > Bennie & The Jets > Sponge Bob > Nothing Too Fancy > Fur Elise > Southern Man > Eye of the Tiger > Yesterday > Rocky

We’ve got lots of news to report from the Aaron Freeman camp this morning, the most important bit of which is that the artist formerly known as Gene Ween is happy and healthy. Congrats go out to Aaron for passing the 15 month mark in his sobriety, an accomplishment he wisely calls “the most important thing I’ve ever done.” Now that Freeman’s back in “fighting shape,” there’s lots of music on the horizon for the singer-songwriter who co-founded Ween with Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo.
Even in Ween’s earliest days Freeman and Melchiondo were known for their experimental recording efforts using four-track cassette recorders. Aaron will pass the lessons he learned from those days and beyond to future musicians taking part in his Experimental Analog Recording summer workshop at The Paul Green Rock Academy in Woodstock, New York. Here’s the description of what participants will learn at the workshop, which takes place from July 15 – 19 and is open to those ages 8 – 18…
Students will use analog recording techniques and materials to create an innovative and experimental music piece. Kids will work collaboratively to come up with concept, play and produce the work. Each student will leave with a copy of the work they’ve created.
Aaron also has just announced a new batch of five gigs that starts on April 18th at Oak Ridge, Tenn.’s Lincoln’s Sports Grill and continues with shows at Narrows Center For The Arts in Fall River, Mass. on April 26th, at Higher Ground in South Burlington, Vermont on the 27th and concludes with performances at The Sinclair in Cambridge, Mass. on May 9th and at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 10th.
Finally, Freeman has shared with us that he’s aiming to start recording his first solo album of original material this summer. He’s been writing throughout the past year and we’re excited to hear what he comes up with.Leave A Comment
HT faves Dumpstaphunk brought the funk to NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl on March 23rd, where the Ivan Neville-led act treated fans to a mix of new material from Dirty Word – an album set to be released later this year, originals from throughout their 10-year career and a cover of Funkadelic’s One Nation Under A Groove. The show even saw a guest spot from The London Souls guitarist Tash Neal.

Following the tragic deaths of bassist Berry Oakley and guitarist Duane Allman in 1972 and 1971 respectively, the Allman Brothers Band went on with a revised lineup that featured Dickey Betts as the lone guitar player in the group and the additions of bassist Lamar Williams and piano player Chuck Leavell. One of the few pieces of footage from that era of the ABB, which lasted from 1972 – 1976, was aired on Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert’s A Saturday Night In Macon special.
The special featured live performance footage from Wet Willie, Marshall Tucker Band and the Allman Brothers Band that was filmed at Macon’s Grand Opera House on September 10th, 1973. Today, upgraded footage of A Saturday Night In Macon has surfaced thanks to the efforts of A House of Design Production, Donza, Bob Bartelma and BurningShoreProphet.
Let’s take a look at the Allman Brothers Band’s 1973 performance…

Here’s a news item we didn’t see coming – the original lineup of Garage A Trois will reunite for a special late night set at New Orleans’ Howlin’ wolf on April 27th. The set, featuring Charlie Hunter, Skerik and Stanton Moore, will take place following Leftover Salmon’s performance at the same venue. Tickets to see both LoS and GAT will run you $30 in advance or $35 day-of-show if tickets remain.

We’ve heard of announcing shows the morning of the performance, but Pretty Lights is breaking new ground as the jamtronica act has just announced a surprise set at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City that begins in just a few minutes. Derek Vincent Smith was scheduled to be off the road until Coachella next weekend and isn’t supposed to play NYC until he performs at June’s Governor’s Ball Music Festival.
Tonight marks Pretty Lights’ first appearance at Brooklyn Bowl. Questlove will still spin his Bowl Train set following Pretty Lights. Derek will perform tracks mostly off his new album during the hour-long set.
Stephen Stills will make a rare television appearance tonight as the guest of Tavis Smiley on Smiley’s PBS talk show. Stills will discuss his new box set, Carry On, his time with CSNY and much more.

As a New York City resident, sometimes I lose perspective and need to be reminded that I live in the greatest city on Earth. So I’d like to personally thank Chan Marshall for deciding to make a music video for Manhattan, a track that appeared on Cat Power’s 2012′s release Sun. The video is Ms. Marshall’s love letter to the Big Apple, and follows the former East Village resident as as she traverses the city, across bridges, in subway stations, bars and bodegas, thumbing through records and aimlessly wandering city streets from Chinatown to Tompkins Square Park to Times Square to Harlem.Leave A Comment
A few years ago a page appeared on Facebook for “Boognish Rising,” a Ween documentary that’s “in the works but the release date is uncertain at this point.” Recently the page’s owner has been sharing incredible audio, photographic and video gems from Ween’s near 30-year history.
Yesterday, an eight-minute clip from 1987 surfaced showing Deaner and Gener walking around their hometown of New Hope, Pennsylvania and explaining their band. Here’s more info…
In the summer of 1987 Ween filmed a short movie with friend and director Tom Nichols. They were planning on releasing it alongside Axis: Bold As Boognish, but it never happened. Here is a little preview. Big thanks to Gene Ween for the footage! The song is Opus 51 Fugue Trilogy in A.
Now, feast your eyes on the clip…

Nearly three months after Perpetual Groove announced they would be parting ways for a dreaded “indefinite hiatus,” we’ve made it to the day of the “final show.” Not only will Perpetual Groove offer their farewell performance tonight at the Georgia Theatre, but Ghost Owl will make their debut this evening as well. Last night, PGroove offered up two acoustic sets at the Green Room in Athens.
For the quartet’s acoustic finale, they mixed originals from throughout their career with covers from Funkadelic (Can You Get To That) and Modest Mouse (Float On). Fittingly, It Starts Where It Ends served as the lone encore. Watch a brief clip of Perpetual Groove covering Float On…
Here’s the setlist from last night’s show…
Set One: All This Everything Pt. 1, Astro Monkey, A Day the Way, TSM2, No Decorations, My Favorite Color, Only Always
Set Two: Lost Connection, Get to That, Tusevun, Devil May Care, Under Lock & Key, Float On
Encore: It Starts Where it Ends

Back on Monday we told you about the Jerry Garcia estate selling a version of the Grateful Dead front man’s iconic black t-shirt that comes with a download card which will get you a crystal-clear recording of the Jerry Garcia Band’s first-ever show at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre. Today, we bring you a taste of what the estate has dubbed “GarciaLive 1.5″ from June 26th, 1981.
Here’s audio of a fantastic version of Dear Prudence featuring Phil Lesh on bass…
There’s only a few days left to order the t-shirt and download card package.Leave A Comment
Jeff Tweedy is one busy dude. In addition to all the work he puts in as the front man and mastermind of Wilco, he’s also an in-demand producer. Not only is Tweedy working with White Denim, but he’s reprising his role as Mavis Staples’ producer on her new album – One True Vine.
The name “One True Vine” may ring a bell for Wilco fans, as it’s the name of a criminally underlooked Sky Blue Sky outtake. Mavis’s version of the tune closes out the 10-track album which is set for a June 25th release via Anti-. Take a listen to Wilco’s version of One True Vine…
Track listing for One True Vine:
Jeff and Mavis last paired up for Staples’ wonderful 2010 album You Are Not Alone.
