Live music, in its purest forms, provides the proverbial "Great Escape" or Paracosm that Washed Out's latest LP so precisely and expertly promises and delivers in spades all the way from the outer stretches of the A-side to the end of Side B. Since gaining popularity at such a rapid rate over the past few years on the heels...
Widespread Panic renewed an old tradition last night by returning to their old stomping grounds in New Orleans for yet another Halloween night show at UNO's Lakefront Arena. The show featured eight songs the band had never played before, a couple of JJ Cale covers and a memorable and surprising cover of The Strangeloves "I Want Candy" among other...
The last time Foo Fighters played a live show at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on 9/29/12, Barack Obama was still in his first term as president and the word "twerk" hadn't even made its improbable way into the dictionary. It all seems like ancient history now. After 15 months on the shelf, Grohl & Co. have...
With a new location within City Park and yet another unique lineup to boast (in keeping with the festival's always veritable and bizarro break-from-a-growing-monotony-of-major-festival-lineups), this year's Voodoo Experience once again diverges from the norm to bring together a pack of artists that otherwise wouldn't convene...anywhere. While there are far more reasons (both musical and non-musical) to make it...
Legendary Americana roots rocker Steve Earle returned to New Orleans on Wednesday night for a lengthy set at the newly-reopened Civic Theatre - a welcome and impressive addition to the Big Easy's collection of new venue offerings (also see The Joy and Saenger Theatres and Gasa Gasa). Earle's provocative and sometimes intense lyrical (and bantered) reflections throughout the set...
Record Store Day, a glorious bi-annual tradition bringing crate diggers together from far and wide, has just unveiled the up-to-date list of exclusive releases for this year's Black Friday edition. Unsurprisingly, there are already several we've got our eye on. LMB favorites dropping vinyl on 11/29/13 include Charles Bradley (w/ Budos Band and The Bullets), Blind Boys Of Alabama/Jason...
On Saturday night, Tedeschi Trucks Band wheeled through downtown New Orleans for a weekend showing before a sold out crowd at the newly-refurbished Joy Theater. The over two hour show was remarkably varied and eclectic, channeling through heavy-charging blues, rock, soul, funk and traditional NOLA brass fare. TTB dug into their studio catalog before trading lines on Derek Trucks...
Say what you will about the band's most polarizing output to date (2012's Fragrant World LP), but Yeasayer continues pushing against pre-conceived sonic and visual boundaries with each new track and accompanying music video. Today, the band unveiled a new video featuring the last track on Fragrant World called “Glass of the Microscope," an apocalyptic tune replete with hi-tech...
The sixth and final day of Austin City Limits 2013 was a wash due to heavy rains and flooding in the area. Several of the bands slated to appear today have made alternate plans to keep the music going and Atoms For Peace just announced a special, last-minute performance tonight at the Moody Theatre. The box office will open...
Photo by Justin Schaible Fresh off last night's amazing late night performance on Jimmy Fallon alongside the star-studded ensemble of Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Antibalas horns and The Roots, My Morning Jacket took to Time Square this evening for a set at the CBGB Festival. Once again, the band was joined by special guests for...
