All-Star Musicians Assemble To Honor Peter Shapiro At BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Gala

first_imgAt opening night of Celebrate Brooklyn! in Prospect Park this past Wednesday night, event organizer BRIC, the leading presenter of free cultural programming in Brooklyn, honored independent club owner, concert promoter, publisher, and overall good guy Peter Shapiro. The man behind Brooklyn Bowl, The Capitol Theatre, Relix, Lockn’ Festival, Jazz & Colors, the Grateful Dead’s 50th Anniversary Fare Thee Well performances, and a myriad of other ventures was being celebrated for all of these accomplishments, but more importantly for his commitment to the arts, culture, and community in continuously working to make such events, initiatives and programs accessible to everyone.Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings had the honors of headlining the first concert at the Bandshell this summer. It was the groups first time back at the park since 2010, and they did not disappoint. Even at 60 years old and two bouts with cancer under her belt, Jones has more energy than most people in their twenties. Watching her dance around the stage and take command of the entire ensemble, she is like the female version of James Brown, as that uptempo soul-funk just begs for you to get up and dance. After the main stage performance in the Gala Tent, the festivities continued with a special disco-funk dj set from WFUV‘s Rita Houston that kept the evening rolling along in fine fashion.Prior to the performances, the Opening Night Gala to kick off the 38th season of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival saw presenters Leslie G. Schultz and Jack Walsh (President and Vice President of BRIC, respectively) along with artists and long-time friends such as Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead/Benevento-Russo Duo drummer and namesake Joe Russo deliver a few words about “Shappy” (as his friends call him), to an audience consisting of musicians Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits, Almost Dead/American Babies Tom Hamilton, Scott Metzger, moe.’s Al Schnier, Mississippi Allstars’ Luther Dickinson, Jackie Greene, Michael Franti, Lettuce/Soulive’s Neal Evans, Blues Travelers John Popper, DJ Logic, HeadCount executive director Andy Bernstein (Shapiro is a founding board member), along with collaborators from Madison House, Shore Fire Media, and more. Krasno discussed Shapiro’s uncanny ability to make things happen, “Peter is never afraid to take a chance. He is a master connector, and always puts the best people together to make the best events”.As Shapiro spoke, you couldn’t help but notice the humble spirit and obvious super fan come out in the way he talks about music and these epic events that he has spearheaded over the years. After thanking his wife, Shore Fire Media Vice President Rebecca Shapiro, his two children Roxy and Simon, his supportive mother and two brothers, as well as his entire team at Dayglo Ventures he took time to recognize two people in his life that were responsible for all of this: his father and lawyer David Shapiro and Wetlands Preserve founder Larry Bloch, both of whom have since passed. Without Bloch’s willingness to hand over the club to a gung-ho 23-year old in 1996, along with his belief in Shapiro’s vision, as well as the support and both life and legal advice from his father, we may have not had those last five years (from 1996-2001) of one of the best clubs New York City has ever seen, and who knows if Brooklyn Bowl ever comes into fruition. He did sneak in a third person very important figure, just for the record. You guessed it….Jerry Garcia.Shapiro went on to discuss the importance of having spaces and events in which people can create, celebrate, and mourn. There are three staples that need to happen for this type of intrinsic success:1. Good weather2. Focusing on net worth doesn’t create a good vibe. Make people happy first and foremost, then worry about making a few dollars for yourself.3. Create magic and memoriesPeople’s memories of you last forever, and going that extra step to achieve the best possible vibe is the “X” factor that Peter Shapiro has accounted for in all of his ventures, and the reason why he is such a successful businessman, organizer, and community leader. Having served on the Board of Directors of the City Parks Foundation Arts Committee for several years, being a founding board member of HeadCount, and his involvement in other non-profit organizations, Shapiro is an example of how you can be a success in business while still doing incredible philanthropic deeds and leaving a positive impact on the community. He left us with a quote that he and his daughter came up with, “The only way to achieve the impossible is to believe the possible, and to do it with others”. Keep on believing, Peter, because we most certainly believe in you.[all photos courtesy Marc Millman Photography] Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Bassnectar Goes Downtempo For New ‘Unlimited’ Album [Review/Stream]

first_imgBass god Lorin Ashton, aka Bassnectar, has done it again with his twelfth studio release Unlimited. Just as his label Amorphous Music suggests, this album is truly unclassifiable, yet it is undeniable that this collection of hypnotic songs is more downtempo than most of his previous releases. But fear not— there is still plenty of heart-thumping bass to cozza frenzy.On Youtube, Bassnectar described the first track “Reaching Out” as a song “about human connection, but also about our personal journeys and how they intersect in cathartic and beautiful ways in a kind of metamorphosis.” The accompanying video stunningly captures this essence and can be watched here.“Music Is The Drug” featuring LUZCID really needs no explanation and leaves one wondering ‘where can I get an IV drip of that?’ “TKO” is a referee-declared hit, with Rye Rye and Zion I delivering the final blows. Tapping in heavy-hitters G Jones and Lafa Taylor, an extra filthy layer of bass is dished up in “Mind Tricks.” It’s easy to get lost in the spiral of this song’s hook: “the mind tricks the body tricks the mind tricks the body.”“Unlimited Combinations” is like a carnival ride for adults. Strap yourselves in, bassheads, we’re going for a ride! “Level Up” with LEViT∆TE features highly electronified elements of traditional Bollywood dance combined with nicely complementing verses by Seattle-based rapper Macntaj. “Shampion Chip” carries a heavy feet-stomping beat for two and a half minutes before bottoming out to wobbly drop full of clickety gloriousness. Right at the halfway mark of the album, “Zogdilla” delivers the heavy basslines just as we need them. Creatures of this same name will no doubt get raucous to this knee-banging track all summer long.A paracosm, as defined by Wikipedia, is a detailed imaginary world created in one’s mind, that may contain humans, animals, and things that exist in reality…or not. With that bit of knowledge drop, it’s interesting to contemplate the intentions and delivery of Bassnectar’s next track “Paracosm,” for which he again partnered with glitch pioneers, The Glitch Mob. You can continue to sail away into the depths of your own mind with “Surrender,” and then wind down an increasingly darker path with “Dream Catcher.”Critical to this other-worldly voyage, both on the album and for live shows, are tracks like “Journey To The Center” and “In The Beginning,” which challenge you to push through the glob of glue that is your head. When you make it through, you’re rewarded with the utterly beautiful “Rising Rising,” which is Bassnectar’s breathtaking remix of Crywolf’s original song. This whimsical lullaby leads into the final track “Inspire the Empathetic” which features a couple of guys laughing – Lorin included – and singing a capella. In 2004, he released a track of this same name, which spotlighted the corruptness of media corporations. Twelve years later, fans across the interwebs are now trying to determine the meaning of this newest release, which is much more light-hearted and political-message-absent, compared to its counterpart. We can think on that, as I’m sure the mastermind Lorin intended us to do.Last week, the hills of Bethel Woods, NY were alive with the sound of bass music, as Lorin unleashed this fury for the first time at Mysteryland USA. While some were caught off guard with the more chilled-out nature of the set, the majority of his legion understood the transformational journey he was directing. Bassnectar’s next stop is Electric Forest, followed by a string of other summer festivals, including Moonrise, Electric Zoo, and Life Is Beautiful.

Listen To Phish’s Debuts Of ‘Moma,’ ‘Roggae’ & ‘Brian and Robert’ On This Day In 1998

first_imgMuch like this summer, Phish had taken some time to prepare new material ahead of their 1998 summer tour. The new songs would ultimately end up on The Story Of The Ghost, and a tour through Europe would prove the ultimate testing grounds for these new gems. Not only did Phish bring out three brand new songs for the fans who made it to the tour opener in Copenhagen, but they treated fans to a great show in the process.Opening with “Limb by Limb” and “Ghost,” Phish treated fans to an alternate version of their classic tune “Water in the Sky” in the first set. You can hear the excitement at the new interpretation! There was an air of excitement for the first-ever “Roggae” too, a song that would become a staple of live shows. The band also turned a 1997 funk jam into “The Moma Dance,” with Trey Anastasio even going so far as to teach fans the now-forgotten dance that accompanies. After a great second set, the band brought out one more new song, “Brian and Robert,” for the encore.Listen to the full audio of the show, courtesy of fromtheaquarium.You can see the phish.net setlist below.Setlist: Phish at The Grey Hall, Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, Denmark – 06/30/1998 Set 1: Limb By Limb, Ghost, Water in the Sky[1] > Bouncing Around the Room, Tube, Stash -> Cities, Roggae[2], Guyute, Beauty of My Dreams > Funky Bitch, Train Song, David BowieSet 2: The Moma Dance[2], Birds of a Feather, Wolfman’s Brother -> Frankie Says > Run Like an Antelope, Lawn Boy, Ya Mar, Ha Ha Ha, Mike’s Song -> Swept Away > Steep > Weekapaug GrooveEncore: Brian and Robert[2][1] Debut of “new” faster arrangement.[2] Debut.Notes: This show marked the debuts of Roggae, The Moma Dance, Brian and Robert, and the “new” faster arrangement of Water in the Sky. Ghost included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Tube contained a Sand tease. The Moma Dance included the band teaching the audience the simplistic “dance” that accompanies the song.last_img read more

Phish Kicked Off Their Fall Tour With An Improv-Heavy Night In Charleston

first_imgPhish began their fall tour in style tonight with a show at the North Charleston Coliseum, the first of two nights at the venue. The show featured several songs from their new album Big Boat, multiple jams in the first set, a second set that was filled with many standout moments of improv, and a rare three-song encore. When the dust settled, Phish had delivered one of their best tour-opening shows in recent memory.The band showcased ambitious intentions from the get-go, kicking things off with the Phish debut of “Petrichor”. The 13-minute composition made its debut as a Trey Anastasio orchestral track a few years ago, and was included as the final song on Phish’s recently released album Big Boat. Phish nailed the composed section before launching into a small improv segment at the end of the tune. “Ghost” followed, and the band almost immediately launched into a jam segment that was sure to remind fans who were possibly dismayed by the new album exactly why they like Phish in the first place. The band was strong, adventurous, and experimental as they locked in as a unit, delivering an early show highlight with an awesome version of “Ghost”.Phish kept things bouncing along with a standard, but still fun version of “Heavy Things”, before Page McConnell took a minute to say hello to the crowd and thank them for coming. The band then went into his Big Boat standout “Home”, during which they stretched the song out from its form, adding a short but raging jam at the end that gave fans a brief look at the song’s potential. “Poor Heart” gave the audience good reason to hoot and holler, with Mike Gordon providing a slick bass solo in the middle of the song. “Poor Heart” gave way to “Bathtub Gin”, giving Phish another early opportunity to offer up some improvisation, and they took the opportunity and ran with it, with Anastasio and Gordon playing off each other perfectly before Jon Fishman caught them with the beat. McConnell started pushing the band with a double time piano part, and Anastasio responded with a glorious peak before bringing the song to its conclusion.The band kept the energy up with a dark and dirty performance of “555”, before gifting the audience with a powerful version of “Horn”. Phish then brought the first set to a close with an excellent performance of “More” from Big Boat. The band was on fire during this song, bringing the energy up to a huge peak before completing the song and walking off stage to a huge applause from the thrilled Charleston crowd.Phish returned to the stage for their second set with a rockin’ version of “No Men In No Man’s Land” that featured a short-but-sweet jam that quickly dissolved into “Down With Disease”. “Disease” included wild improvisation that eventually slowed down into a sludgy, Led Zeppelin-esque type II section, with Anastasio screeching his guitar at the end of the impressive moment. The band made a seamless segue into their cover of The Talking Heads‘ “Cities”, which slowed things down and simultaneously kicked the energy into a whole other gear. McConnell picked things up on his clavinet at the end of the song before the song fizzled out and “Roggae” began. “Roggae” was an excellent call in this slot, with its psychedelic guitar swirls a perfect compliment to the songs that came before it.Phish continued the psychedelic rock vibes with a great “Twenty Years Later”, before transitioning into the reliable and melodic jam vehicle “Light”. Anastasio’s guitar prowess was on full display during “Light”, as he led the band through a furious improv section, with Fishman pushing the beat more and more until he dropped into a “No Men In No Man’s Land” tease. The full band followed Fishman as the beat slowed down, but the improv kept going, making for a true type II segment. The “Light” jam flowed directly into a triumphant version of “Free”.The band then started up a loose and funky version of Stevie Wonder‘s “Boogie On Reggae Woman”. The crowd went nuts for “Boogie On”, with Gordon leaning into the groove before Phish started up their classic “Harry Hood”. This version saw Anastasio adding some interesting and experimental flourishes to the songs’s opening segment, before the band settled on the song’s usual beautiful improv section. “Harry Hood” closed the euphoric second set, which featured multiple standout jams and a non-stop flow throughout.Phish started their encore with the second “Winterqueen” of 2016, but things really picked up with “Tube”. The band stretched “Tube” out a bit, pushing the song’s form and going into a short bit of improv before bringing the song to a close. The band then surprised fans by starting up a fast and wild “Rocky Top” to complete the rare three-set encore.Phish started their tour with a huge show in Charleston, and fans have to be excited with the energy and creativity that was on display at such an early point in their tour. Phish return to the North Charleston Coliseum tomorrow night to finish their two-night run at the venue.Phish | North Charleston Coliseum | Charleston, SC | 10/14/2016Set One: Petrichor, Ghost, Heavy Things, Home, Poor Heart, Bathtub Gin, 555, Horn, MoreSet Two: No Men In No Man’s Land > Down With Disease -> Cities > Roggae > Twenty Years Later > Light > Free, Boogie On Reggae Woman > Harry HoodEncore: Winterqueen, Tube, Rocky Toplast_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Christens New Madison Venue, The Sylvee, With SunSquabi [Photo/Video]

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Daniel Ojeda As owners to keys of the city, frequent visiting neighbors from the south, and masterminds behind several epic and historic concerts played in Madison, Wisconsin, Umphrey’s McGee did something that few bands get the privilege of doing when playing in Madison—they christened a brand-spankin’-new venue. The newly constructed Sylvee, barely a week old, can now be added to the list of 40-plus concerts Umphrey’s McGee has played in Madison over their twenty-year career.Colorado jamtronica act Sunsquabi opened the show. Although the crowd slowly trickled in over the course of their set, they made sure to put on a good show for those who were in attendance. By the time Umphrey’s took the stage to open the show with “Tango Mike”, the audience has filled up. Interestingly enough, the show featured a lot more instrumentals like “Miss Tinkle’s Overture”, “Blue Echo,” “Tribute to the Spinal Shaft”, “Triple Wide”, and “Wizard Burial Ground” than songs than lead vocalist Brendan Bayliss actually sings. His voice shined on “Words” and “Much Obliged,” but apart from those he wasn’t featured heavily in the mix.“Tango Mike”The copious amount of instrumentals allowed for the band to do plenty of jamming. “Blue Echo”, a song that is always stretched out, featured some of the tastiest improvisation of the night. The second set had a pretty neat “Much Obliged” that went in a couple distinct directions but eventually segued into the speed metal of “Wizard Burial Ground.” It was a fun transistion, especially considering how different the two songs are. The band capped the night off with a fun but straight-forward cover of the Pink Floyd classic “Breathe”, which had both the dub portion and the regular portion. Next up, Umphrey’s moves onto Chicago for the third and final night of the Big Weekend event, which spans multiple venues throughout the city.You can check out a gallery of photos from Umphrey’s McGee’s show last night at Madison, Wisconsin’s newly opened Sylvee below, courtesy of Daniel Ojeda.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | The Sylvee | Madison, WI | 10/5/2018Set I (8:16): Tango Mike > Miss Tinkle’s Overture, Words -> Blue Echo > What We Could Get, Tribute to the Spinal Shaft > Push and Pull, JaJunk (9:30)Set II (10:02): Looks, The Triple Wide > Daffodils, It Doesn’t Matter [1] > Much Obliged [2] > Wizard Burial Ground (11:10)E (11:15): Breathe [3] (11:24)[1] Proverbial jam[2] unfinished[3] Dub VersionUmphrey’s McGee | The Sylvee | Madison, WI | 10/5/2018 | Photo: Daniel Ojedalast_img read more

Following a breezy opening guitar segment from Dickinson, Helm dives head-first into the song’s verse before harmonizing with Mae on the chorus.Dickinson recently shared his thoughts on the new project with Relix. He explains,Each singer brought a handful of songs to the table. Sometimes it was an old tune they wanted to reinterpret or something new they’d written that felt right for the cast of characters at hand, but no matter the track, all of our colors ended up mixing together on a communal palette.Watch Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon’s new video for “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen” below:Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon – “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen”[Video: New West Records]Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon will perform at various City Winery locations throughout the month of March.

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Opens Northeast Run With Exploratory Show At Penn’s Peak [Audio/Video]

first_imgOn Wednesday, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened up the first show of their four-night Northeast run with a performance at Jim Thorpe, PA’s Penn’s Peak.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened up their first set with a jam before smoothly flowing into “Peggy-O”. Bassist Dave Dreiwitz led the band into “The Music Never Stopped”, which included teases of Black Sabbath‘s “War Pigs” and John Coltrane‘s “A Love Supreme”. “The Music Never Stopped” segued into “Loose Lucy”, last played by Joe Russo’s Almost Dead on December 31st, 2016 at The Capitol Theatre. The quintet kept on chugging with an open-ended jam that made way for “Weather Report Suite”, playing the first part of the tune as an instrumental. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead closed out the first set with “Stella Blue”.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead came back out to open their second set with the classic “Man Smart, Woman Smarter” before the band moved forward with a smoothly-segued grouping of “The Eleven”, a jam on “Let It Grow”, and “Easy Wind”. The wind kept blowing at Penn’s Peak, as JRAD followed “Easy Wind” up with “Black Throated Wind”. The remainder of the set was a monstrous segue, as the quintet worked through “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad” into an instrumental take on “We Bid You Good Night”, with the latter featuring tease of “Fire On The Mountain”. The band continued “Fire” into an open-ended jam chock-full of “Terrapin Station” teases. JRAD continued in the “Terrapin” theme with “Lady With A Fan” before Marco Benevento darted off into an exploratory solo, which featured teases of Led Zeppelin‘s “No Quarter”. “Terrapin Station” brought the full-throttle second set to a triumphant closing. “Big Railroad Blues” served as the evening’s lone encore.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – “Man Smart, Woman Smarter”[Video: nugsnet]Listen to full-show audio from last night’s show courtesy of taper Rich Stoler.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – 3/13/2019 (Full-Show Audio)[Audio: Rich Stoler]Tonight, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead wil head to New Haven, CT for a performance at College Street Music Hall, followed by a show at Montclair, NJ’s Wellmont Theater (3/15) and Cleveland, OH’s Masonic Auditorium (3/16).For a full list of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s upcoming tour dates and ticketing information, head to the band’s website.Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | Penn’s Peak | Jim Thorpe, PA | 3/13/2019Set One: Jam -> Peggy-O, The Music Never Stopped @ > Loose Lucy #, Jam -> Weather Report Suite: Prelude / Part One $ ->Let It Grow %, Stella BlueSet Two: Man Smart Woman Smarter > The Eleven -> Let It Grow Jam -> Easy Wind, Black Throated Wind -> Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad > We Bid You Goodnight ^ -> Fire On The Mountain -> Jam & -> Lady with a Fan -> Marco Solo * -> Terrapin Station +Encore: Big Railroad Blues@ – With a “War Pigs” (Black Sabbath) Tease (Band) and a “Love Supreme” (John Coltrane) Tease (TH)# – Not Played By Almost Dead Since 2016-12-31 Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, NY, a gap of 90 shows$ – Instrumental, Not Played By Almost Dead Since 2017-11-09 Teragram Ballroom, Los Angeles, CA, a gap of 57 shows% – With a “War Pigs” (Black Sabbath) Tease (TH)^ – Instrumental, With a Fire On The Mountain Tease (TH)& – With Terrapin Teases (Band)* – With “No Quarter” (Led Zeppelin) Teases (MB)+ – With a “War Pigs” (Black Sabbath) Jamlast_img read more
