Heady Links

Well, following yesterday’s announcement that the Secret Machines have not signed on to play NYE with the Black Crowes, I’m feeling slightly sheepish. I guess every site is only as good as the information they receive, so that’s the risk of posting news that appears credible–sometimes it turns out premature or wrong.

Check out this gallery of Spoon and OK Go from Columbus, OH. [donewaiting.com]

Jesse Jarnow has a good roundup at his site of the all the recent stuff he’s published. Check it out here, and don’t miss his first two guest posts here either.

Keller Williams will release Grass on January 2. Info from Jambands.com…
A collaboration with the husband and wife duo of Larry and Jenny Keel, Grass will feature a 10-song mix of originals and “unexpected covers.” Over the past year, Williams has collaborated wit the Keels on numerous occasions and the trio promise an “organic and airy acoustic” recoding. Grass will be available January 2 exclusively at the one-man band’s concerts and through his official homepage.

In other Keller Williams news, Mike Gordon sat in with him the other night at Higher Ground. I’m looking for the download right now…

  4. If you mean in the old sense of the term like PRIMUS SUCKS! Well then, you do. Otherwise, you’ve got a great site with solid writing and I pretty much visit every day.

  6. Think we’ll be able to snag a copy of Grass at NYE? Man that’d be sweet so I don’t have to pay shipping lol.

    I’ve got some other links on the album with samples and some stuff on the NYE show with Umph’s, check it out:

    Keller and the Keels

    Randy Ray, are you one of the JamBands.com Moderator’s or is that just your link?

  8. I read your Franti interview, it really made me wish I had gone inside at Vegoose to see him instead of absorbing a bunch of FatTires since I can’t get them in Chicago/Champaign. lol, nice writing, I’ll keep an eye out for more of it.

  11. Oh, no worries, whatsoever. Thanks for reading and the compliment! You’ve got an outstanding site, too. Another one to check for me.

  13. Haha yeah I know what you mean with Franti, in my opinion his setlists are all a little too similar as well, and he doesn’t offset it with many covers or jams. But, I’ve only seen him once or twice so I have yet to get tired of the guy. He’s funky enough to make up for it. I really wish I get get a copy of the jam he did with SCI at Milwaukee Summerfest, July 6th or something like that. He came out and rapped on the track “On Fire” I think, anyways, it was repetitive as usual and Nershi was getting frustrated with him, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. And now I’m off to an Economics Final…..
