The last date of the Carry Fire Winter tour landed Robert Plant at the beautiful Orpheum Theatre in DTLA. The tour has stuck to smaller venues (the Orpheum holds about 2,000) while drawing on a consistent setlist of multiple tunes from both Carry Fire and Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar, as well as a few quieter Zeppelin touchstones and...
I flat out think the Tedeschi Trucks Band is one of the best touring bands on the road anywhere. It’s not just the nimbleness of a 12-piece unit that can fly like a jazz trio, or the cauldron that launches Derek Trucks’ journeys, or the purr to a growl joy of Susan Tedeschi matching those Strat/Tele/Les Paul driven sparks. Tedeschi...
Newport Folk is about the words and the music. propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('livemusicblog_main_1'); }); Songs that stir and shake, songs you shake your ass to, songs that provoke, songs that matter... But it’s also about discovery of new voices and sounds, while not forgetting to pay tribute to the influence of founder George Wein and the guiding...
Goldenvoice's Arroyo Seco Weekend Festival wrapped up last weekend, and our friend Jim Brock went and covered both days (June 24th & 25th) giving us a look into the inaugural festival set in the "shady oaks and Brookside parkland next to the iconic Rose Bowl Stadium". propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('livemusicblog_main_1'); }); Scroll on for his galleries...
The Revivalists may be from New Orleans, but their sound is much bigger than just their hometown. With four albums under their belts including 2015’s fine Men Amongst Mountains, every instrumental element of this seven-piece'r contributes mightily to the sum: David Shaw’s relentless energy and stage presence, Ed Williams snarling pedal steel, guitarist Zack Feinberg, Rob Ingraham’s sax, George...
KAABOO Del Mar was the most relaxed fest I’ve attended, and it has a great San Diego vibe. This is not a pop-up on dirt, and the Del Mar Fairgrounds are first class. Musically diverse with a splash of New Orleans, a heavy does of roots and alt-country, tried-and-trues, funk and jammers, worldly influenced, indie heroes, local heroes, and a dish of...
Day three of Newport Folk Festival could have been a tad bit a letdown after surprise sets by My Morning Jacket on Friday and James Taylor on Saturday. So, expectations were high for '65 Revisited. I am a huge David Rawlings (and Gillian Welch) fan, and while the guests, including Robyn Hitchcock, John McCauley and Ian Patrick O’Neil of...
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival wrapped up last month and we've finally got all of our galleries in house thanks to our intrepid man-on-the-scene photographer Jim Brock. Covering a festival like this takes skill and plenty of stamina -- hell, even getting through Jazz Fest as a fan takes a lot of stamina in and of itself...
Wheels of Soul, one of the summer tours already turning up the heat, hit L.A.’s Greek Theatre recently and more than lived up to its billing. Featuring the triple threat of Doyle Bramhall II, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings and the Tedeschi Trucks Band, it was a great night for blues, retro-soul and some serious guitar slinging. ...
After a brief delay we've finally wrapped up all of our New Orleans Jazz Fest photo editing and uploading, including this gallery from the weekday break in-between the two "official" Jazz Fest weekends when Tipitina's hosts an amazing event called Instruments A Comin'. Jim Brock was there that Monday night to catch the Tip's Interns, Galactic, Honey Island Swamp Band,...
