Five For Friday: DMB, Imagine Dragons, Kanye, Doheny Days & New Music Tuesday

7 Sep

Five For Friday, here’s some good tidbits to get you in the right mindset this weekend.

  1. Recently a buddy of mine won an all expense paid trip courtesy of Volkswagen to see Dave Matthews Band at the Gorge over Labor Day Weekend.  Not only was I stoked for him because he’s a huge DMB and music nut like me but it’s the Gorge, a place I’m still trying to get to.  Little did I know that after the show him and two other friends would appear in a whole Rolling Stone slideshow documenting the weekend.   Check it out HERE.
  2. Hometown Vegas boys Imagine Dragons dropped their first full length release this week, Night Visions.  Pick it up and catch them on tour with AWOLNATION.
  3. Click HERE to listen to the new Kanye West track “Clique.” Some good guests on this track too!
  4. One of the final music festivals of the summer takes place this weekend, Doheny Days and features a pretty solid lineup where tickets are only $100 for two days.  Jane’s Addiction, The Flaming Lips, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Santigold, Steel Pulse, Delta Spirit, Milo Greene and Jeramiah Red and others perform.
  5. Next Tuesday is going to be one of the most ridiculous New Music Tuesdays ever, you’ve got Bob Dylan (Tempest), Dave Matthews Band (Away From The World), Chris Robinson Brotherhood (The Magic Door), The Avett Brothers (The Carpenter), The xx (Coexist), Thee Oh Sees (Putrifiers II), ZZ Top (La Futura), A$AP Rocky (LongLiveASAP), Ludacris (Ludaversal), David Byrne & St. Vincent (Love This Giant), Calexico (Algiers), Akon (Stadium), Aaron Lewis (The Road), DMX (Undisputed), Kix Brooks (New To This Town) and more!

REVISITED: The Black Crowes – 12 10 10 – The Joint – Las Vegas, NV

11 Dec

Last night was the eighth TBC show I’ve seen and quite frankly I’m not sure I’ve ever heard them sound that good!  They were firing on all cylinders and the crowd was definitely soaking in one of the last remaining shows.  From the get go with “Movin on Down the Line,” “Jealous Again,” and Twice as Hard” the tone for the evening was set and it was a memorable one for sure.  Chris Robinson sounded alive as usual but to me the man who stole the show was Luther Dickson (also lead guitarist for North Mississippi Allstars) so crisp and spot on all night.  Also the trio of “I Ain’t Hiding,” “Soul Singing” and “Remedy” before the encore break definitely made me a happy camper.

While there were numerous songs I would have loved to hear live one last time, I have zero gripes about the show except last night really sunk in how much I’m going to miss The Black Crowes, true purveyors of rock and roll.

Also I was thrilled to see so many people at The Joint early for Truth & Salvage Co. Those boys can rock and definitely have a bright future ahead of them.

TONIGHT: The Black Crowes – The Joint – Las Vegas

10 Dec

Just hours away from rock and roll heaven as The Black Crowes farewell tour invades Las Vegas and The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel. Each time I’ve seen the Crowes at The Joint it has been a wild good time and I expect nothing but the same if not better tonight. Also really excited about Truth & Salvage Co. opening. Chris Robinson signed these guys to his label in 2009 and everyone should take note because they are going to be big one day. Anyways, off to the show and to see true icons of rock perform one last time.

Viva Las Vegas – A Plethora Of Live Music This Week

6 Dec

It’s only Monday and I’m really excited about the music week ahead in Las Vegas.  One of my favorite bands of all time, The Black Crowes, is returning to Las Vegas on Friday evening to play The Joint.  I’ve seen the fellas more than a handful of times live and this one is going to be bittersweet as it’s also part of their farewell tour.  More than anything I’m thrilled about going to a real rock and roll concert filled with two sets of damn good music. This is also a show that I know I’ll be getting there for the opening act as Truth & Salvage Co. will be gracing the stage and they are definitely a band you want to be listening to.

While The Black Crowes are my top music priority for the week in Las Vegas, Passion Pit plays the House of Blues, Temper Trap invades the Hard Rock Café on The Strip and Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds return to Planet Hollywood for two nights of acoustic euphoria. The only damper on the insane week of live music is scheduling and knowing shows overlap and I won’t get to all of them.

Here’s one of my favorite Crowes songs.  Going to miss seeing these guys live.
