Over its seven-year existence, Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival (set to take place Sept. 2nd-4th at Union Park) has become one of the summer’s elite festivals, with a built-in local base as well as being an event in which thousands of people from all over the country flock to each and every year. And while the overall musical diversity of the fest has expanded over the years to include a myriad of genres, co-producers/promoters Silver Wrapper, React Presents, Cold Grums and Metronome have stayed true to their core demographic in securing a mixture of top talent from the electronic, jam, and hip-hop scenes. When you look at it, NCMF was at the forefront of blending these genres almost effortlessly into its annual lineup. And this year clearly builds on that model, in what looks to be the 3-day event’s biggest one yet (get tickets HERE). North Coast Music Festival Releases Diverse First Wave Lineup AnnouncementIn a recent interview with Live Nation TV, Silver Wrapper’s Michael Berg discussed the beginnings of the “hybrid bill” festival format, “We were noticing that some of these combinations were actually working….If you put these acts in Venn diagrams together, there’s gonna be some fans that are shared by both—and at the outer edges, there’s gonna be people who are more loyal to one side than the other. But the longer we did shows like that, we saw that middle section was getting bigger and bigger.” And as North Coast gears up for its 2016 edition, with a second wave of artist announcement still yet to be announced, we decided to take a look at NCMF’s bread and butter in the dance, jam and hip-hop categories:OdeszaThe Seattle-based duo of Harrison Mills (CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) has quite literally taken the world by storm with their indie-fused style of electropop. Since 2012, the group has consistently seen crowds grow and grow to the point of them now being at the top tier of every festival lineup they appear on. With a driving drum beat, beautiful melodies, uplifting and glitched-vocals, and a relentless touring schedule, Odesza has proven themselves to be the real deal and well-deserving of their headlining spot at NCMF.BassnectarWhat more can you say about Bassnectar? Since 2001, the socially-conscious producer has built one of the most loyal and rabid legion of followers in the music scene today. His live show is an undeniable visceral experience of sheer sonic force, sound, and….well, BASS. And lots of it. Outside of throwing down some heavy-hitting beats, Bassnectar has been heavily involved with organization and charities such as Conscious Alliance, Alternet, Free Press, and Reach Out. Music with a conscience…..can’t argue with that.ZeddZedd has become one of the most prolific producers in a very short span of time. Making the transition from being in a German deathcore band (Dioramic) to producing house music in 2009, Zedd blew up the charts with his massive hit “Clarity” ft. Foxes upon the single’s release in 2013 (which also won him a Grammy). Since then, the 26-year old multi-instrumentalist has produced tracks for, and with, artists such as Lady Gaga – he produced “Aura”, “G.U.Y.”, and “Donatella” which all appear on Artpop – Justin Bieber, Hayley Williams (“Stay The Night), Ariana Grande, Jon Bellion, and many more. The scary part is, he is just getting started. If you like music to take you to an ethereal place, Zedd is your guy.LogicLogic has risen, quite literally, from the School of Hard Knocks. Born and raised in the West Deer Park housing projects in Gaithersburg, MD, he was subjected to a life that revolved around two parents that suffered from addiction, and an upbringing that saw many obstacles along the way. Despite all of that and getting kicked out of high school, a message of “Peace Love & Positivity” emanates through his lyrics and music. Sticking to the true tenets of classic hip-hop, Logic is the truth and the East Coast’s version of Kendrick Lamar. After releasing his first mixtape Young, Broke, and Infamous in 2010, he was signed to independent label Visionary Music Group where he released his Young Sinatra mixtapes before signing with Def Jam. Two official albums later – 2014’s Under Pressure and 2015’s The Incredible True Story – and Logic (aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall II) ascended to his seat at the table.Greensky BluegrassDon’t let the “bluegrass” in their name fool you, these gentlemen from Kalamazoo, MI draw upon an array of musical genres. While there is a definitive twang to their style (how can you not have one when you employ a banjo?), the group has an uncanny ability to write well-crafted songs and ballads that allow the cohesive unit to rally around mandolinist Paul Hoffman‘s smooth vocals and story-telling lyrics. And Anders Beck‘s haunting dobro playing creates a space between each note that takes the music to a place of utter transcendence. This will be a can’t-miss set for those that are familiar with the band. And for those of you that don’t know, now you know.Juicy JIt can’t be argued that Juicy J is a veteran, coming up with the Memphis, TN-based southern hip-hop act Three 6 Mafia since the early 90’s, the MC has gone on to create some serious hits of his own, with the track “Bandz A Make Her Dance” ft. Lil’ Wayne and 2 Chainz, “Low” ft. Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, Young Thug, and made an appearance on the Katy Perry hit single “Dark Horse”. Two words to describe Juicy J: Straight Crunk.Other acts on the bill, which is only the first wave of artist announcements, include Grouplove, Action Bronson, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Galantis, Sleigh Bells, and Vulfpeck, in addition to an entire second wave of artists that will be dropped on us in coming weeks. Stay tuned for that. Until then, for tickets and more information, check out the North Coast Music Festival website HERE.
Keller Williams has surprised fans everywhere with the release of a brand new EP! Titled Bluhm, Williams has shared new music in hopes of raising money for his dear friend Tim Bluhm. Bluhm has been recovering from a paragliding accident, and his medical bills continue to pile up. Thus, Williams decided to take matters into his own hands, and recruited a number of talented musicians in the process, including Jackie Greene, Reed Mathis, Jason Crosby, Larry Keel and Kenny Keel.You can find the album here, and read Keller Williams’ statement below.Tim Bluhm, to me, is the epitome of a west coast songwriter. His solo records, and those with The Mother Hips, just reek of California. As a Virginian, I always would dream of the promised land of Pacific time. Tim’s songs have always conjured images of that beautiful section of the country and have fed my longing to be there. Last year, while paragliding his speed wing, upon landing, he snapped his leg in half at the ankle. But he didn’t die. Oh no. Through the pain and the surgeries and the traction, he still pushes on, recording music and playing shows. Obviously, the medical bills are massive. I look at it as a perfect excuse to record five of my favorite Tim Bluhm songs for download, with all the proceeds going to help him get back on his foot. I’m joined by Jackie Greene, Reed Mathis, Jason Crosby as well as Larry Keel and Jenny Keel. Like most covers I play, I take great liberties with this music. Due to my love for these songs, this project was incredibly easy and came together in just a few weeks. Please enjoy while we help to get Tim stompin’ again. KwGet well soon Tim!
Considering that the first set was composed of eight distinct songs, with the band focusing on the internal jams of each number rather than the flow amongst them, “Hell in a Bucket” signaled that Dead & Company had fully settled into the groove of the show, dialing in energetically with the audience and one another and loosening up for the remaining songs in set one. Both Mayer and Weir commanded “Hell in a Bucket,” with the bluesy interplay between Weir’s vocal and Mayer’s guitar (as well as his pristine solo that closed the song) a highlight of the first set.From there, after a laid-back and twangy rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Big River,” the group moved into perennial favorite “Althea,” which featured patient and methodical guitar work from Mayer and the first of many standout moments for Jeff Chimenti last night on the baby grand. Picking things up following the soaring climax of “Althea,” the group moved through a slinky rendition of “New Speedway Boogie” and a soulful “The Music Never Stopped” propelled by the galloping intertwining rhythms provided by Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart. Both Weir and Mayer switched over to acoustic guitars for “Ripple” for the final number of the first set.Following set break, Dead & Company returned with “St. Stephen” to open up the second set. In true Dead fashion, some forgotten lyrics led to some confusion during “St. Stephen,” with Bobby stifling laughter as they moved through the bridge. Despite this initial mix-up, spirits were high, and the song eventually tightened up, with a gorgeous and tight jam closing out the song. From there, “Estimated Prophet” followed, which featured some exceptional interplay between Oteil Burbridge and Mayer, with their parts riffing off one another and exploring an almost dub-influenced sound as they tangentially explored the more traditional parts of the number. Billy and Mickey led out of “Estimated Prophet” with a syncopated and abrupt drop into “Eyes of the World” — a song the crowd basked in, which featured Chimenti again hitting the baby grand hard and a melodic Oteil solo building up to the climax of the song.St. Stephen Load remaining images Dead & Company hit Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado, last night, welcoming in the first of two nights at the University of Colorado – Boulder. For Friday night’s show, the Grateful Dead act came out of the gates swinging, adding a new song to their repertoire with the debut of “Dancin’ in the Streets.” After the disco-tinged “Dancin’ in the Streets” led by Bob Weir, the group moved into “Cold Rain and Snow,” featuring John Mayer on vocals, which offered a welcome change of pace and promises of a cooler day after a ninety-plus degree day in Boulder.Dancin’ In The Streets Another highlight of the night came during “Deal,” which saw Mayer and Weir having a blast during their collaborative vocal jam toward the end of the song. After this unexpected moment, a shimmering transition led into “Let It Grow,” before the jazzy and grinding number moved into the “Drums” portion of the show. With Mickey and Billy mediating in and out of more abstract rhythmic patterns before settling into a shared groove and then back out again, last night’s drums was pulsing, airy, and exploratory. Eventually, Mickey was left alone, making for a heavy and ambient introduction as Bob, Oteil, Jeff, and John came back to the stage for the tail end of “Space” while Mickey went to join Billy off stage.“Space” eventually crawled its way into “The Other One,” before the dramatic tune finally dropped into a sublime rendition of “Morning Dew” to close out the second set. The show came to an end with an encore of “Touch of Grey” that got off to a cowbell-heavy start. During the feel-good encore, security guards began passing out water bottles on the field, only reiterating the communal vibe found at such shows and letting attendees leave happy and hydrated.You can listen to the show below, courtesy of taper Bennett Schwartz as well as check out photos from the first night of Dead & Company’s Colorado run, courtesy of Andrew Rios.Setlist: Dead & Company | Folsom Field | Boulder, CO | 6/10/2017Set One: Dancin’ in the Streets, Cold Rain and Snow, Hell in a Bucket, Big River, Althea, New Speedway Boogie, The Music Never Stopped, RippleSet Two: St. Stephen, Estimated Prophet > Eyes of the World, Deal > Let It Grow > Drums > Space > The Other One > Morning DewEncore: Touch of Grey
On Friday night, The Marcus King Band hit Gramercy Theater in New York City, NY for a Phish late-night party. The band operates within the fiery American roots music that is influenced by soulful psychedelic southern rock, creating a musical environment seductive of fans old and new. King is known for his rough-hewn vocals, soaring guitar work, and heartfelt songwriting. The Marcus King Band broadens their sound, by touching upon multi-genres of funky R&B, southern soul, and Americana. Ever the multitasker, the 21-year-old musician bounces between several instruments, handling electric and acoustic guitar while soulfully driving each track home with his explosive voice. King is joined by a group of masterful musicians in their own right who stack the songs with blasts of swampy brass, a lock-step rhythm section and swirling organ. Together, the band is becoming one of the country’s most sought after live acts.The Marcus King Band heads to the Palace Theatre in Albany, NY tonight with Twiddle, and will close 2017 at the Baltimore Sound Stage in Baltimore, MD.Check out a gallery from Friday night’s show below, courtesy of Eric Gettler.Marcus King Bang | Gramcery Theatre | NYC | 12/29/17 | Photos by Eric Gettler Load remaining images
Setlist: The Who | Woodstock | Bethel, NY | 8/17/69Heaven and Hell, I Can’t Explain, It’s a Boy, 1921, Amazing Journey, Sparks, Eyesight to the Blind, Christmas, The Acid Queen, Pinball Wizard, Do You Think It’s Alright?, Fiddle About, There’s a Doctor, Go to the Mirror!, Smash the Mirror, I’m Free, Tommy’s Holiday Camp, We’re Not Gonna Take It, Summertime Blues, Shakin’ All Over My Generation, Naked Eye Roger Daltrey, the iconic lead singer of The Who celebrates his 72nd birthday today. The powerful voice behind generation-defining hits like “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Baba O’Riley,” and appropriately enough, “My Generation,” Daltrey proved to be the ying to guitarist Pete Townshend’s yang; the Robin to his Batman. Daltrey captivated audiences at storybook festivals like Woodstock, Monterey Pop, and the Isle of Wight, becoming the prototype of a rock frontman and solidifying his spot on the Mt. Rushmore of the rock’s greatest frontmen.In 1968, wanting to move on from the three-minute standard pop single, Townshend began the painstaking process of fleshing out what would become his legendary rock opera and the Who’s 1969 album, Tommy. Finding commercial and critical success with Tommy, it was Daltrey who breathed life into Townshend’s protagonist on the recordings and particularly in the live performances, discovering a new voice and a gear that the band had yet to shift to.To celebrate Daltrey’s birthday today, here are several videos and complete set audio of the Who’s August 17, 1969 performance of Tommy from Woodstock at Max Yagur’s farm in Bethel, NY. The band was scheduled to go on next to last, before Jefferson Airplane, on Saturday, August the 16th, but their set wouldn’t get underway until 5 AM the next morning. The performance also includes versions of “Heaven and Hell,” “I Can’t Explain, “Summertime Blues” and an encore featuring “My Generation” and “Naked Eye,” before the Who’s ritualistic smashing of their instruments.“Pinball Wizard”“See Me, Feel Me” (as part of “We’re Not Gonna Take It”)“My Generation”
