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...

Once again, the band was joined by special guests for...
We've been looking forward to seeing this cover take shape on a live stage ever since the Fela Kuti tribute was released earlier this week. Last night, My Morning Jacket was joined by tUnE-yArDs’ Merill Garbus and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night. Of course, MMJ and Co. were also accompanied by...
