DoYouHearTheMusic.com 2013 @SFOutsideLands Playlist

4 Aug

Figured since I am heading up to Outside Lands in a handful of days, why not put together a little playlist leading up to the festival.  A great lineup awaits and I only have two words, PAUL MCCARTNEY!   I cannot wait to see Sir Paul perform live, this is truly going to be a moment in time where everything else is going on pause for me.

Heading up to Outside Lands as well?  Here are a handful of acts I suggest you make your way to see:

  • twenty one pilots – look up their story when you have time but for now, click HERE
  • Phoenix – check out their production on their current dates
  • Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City should be up for album of the year
  • Jurassic 5 – if you never had the chance to see them back in the day, do yourself a favor now
  • D’Angelo – everyone should see him perform at least once
  • Zedd – fastest rising DJ in the world right now
  • The Head And The Heart- to this day one of my favorite shows I’ve seen at a festival
  • DAWES – their live show puts their albums to shame
  • Gary Clark Jr. – take the time to see this man
  • Wild Belle – Natalie Bergman’s voice will have you at the first note
  • Foals – see what everyone is talking about
  • King Tuff – stoked for this set
  • Rhye – talk about a rise to stardom, this should be a stellar performance
  • Deap Vally – you want to see two chicks rock, here’s your chance
  • Milo Greene -super talented quintet
  • The Growlers – hooked on these guys thanks to a friend’s suggestion
  • MS MR – fun show
  • The Wild Feathers and The Easy Leaves – good way to start your Sunday at OSL

Revisited: My week that was live music in Vegas! Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Deap Vally, Vampire Weekend, New Order, Portugal.The Man

14 Apr

Reason number 6,798 why I love Vegas; getting to wake up in my own city after seeing a marathon of Coachella performers in my own backyard and not having to camp out. More specifically, this week, seeing 90% of the shows at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The entertainment team at the property does an awesome job scooping up the Coachella talent for plays in Vegas and it leaves me very happy.

It all started on Wednesday night for Portugal. The Man and Tegan and Sara.  PTM never disappoint and even with a short set (they were the openers) it was still a great one.  Tegan and Sara definitely played to their market and left fans beaming with excitement.

Thursday night the crowd was on rocking for Johnny Marr and New Order.  In what was essentially a flashback to my days as a child, this show was awesome and getting a chance to see such legends before they put down the microphone was something I’m super thankful I had the chance to do.

Friday, Friday, Friday!!  Sadly I missed Tanlines (ugh, so bummed) but Vampire Weekend quickly made that disappear as they came out firing and had the crowd in their grasp the entire show.  I don’t know about anyone else but I freaking love “Diane Young” and can’t wait to hear the new album.   Later that night, it was off to see one of my favorite DJs, Benny Benassi at Marquee and the place was stupid packed with revelers.

Saturday I dropped by to support some friends at Mix 94.1 during their Pet-a-palooza which featured music by Youngblood Hawke!  Fun little afternoon retreat and a LOT of dogs!  At night it was the evening I had been most excited about for a long time.  Finally it was my chance to see Deap Vally!  If you don’t know who these two gals are, you need to like yesterday.  I may have been one of about 50 people rocking out to them but I didn’t care because these chicks are a page out of Black Sabbath, The White Stripes and the likes.  After warming up the stage it was time for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and what a show it was.  Jenny O, simply awesome and owned the crowd with a righteous performance spanning the YYY’s catalog of songs.

So yeah, no fun at all this past week!  And to think I’m taking a break, not so fast.  Monday it’s Beach House, Tuesday it’s The xx, Wednesday it’s Local Natives and Of Monsters and Men, Thursday Hot Chip, Friday The Postal Service and Saturday Band of Horses.  May try to squeeze in a country show too (yes, I’m serious).

Viva La Musica!!

 

Check out some rocking photos from my friend and rock and roll photographer, Erik Kabik.

Deap Vally cover Jake Bugg’s “Lightning Bolt”

Deap Vally, a duo that if you haven’t listened to before, you better get on ’em because they are going to become a household name very soon.  Give a listen to the Cali duo’s “Gonna Make My Own Money” and you’ll get an idea why!  Anyways, they’re over in the UK and performed live last night on BBC Radio 1 and here’s a video of them covering Jake Bugg’s “Lightning Bolt.”
