Summer Means New Love[H/T – Consequence of Sound] In honor of the 50th anniversary of their 11th album Pet Sounds, The Beach Boys are set to release a new collectors’ edition reissue of the acclaimed studio masterpiece. Today, the band released the new mix of “I Know There’s An Answer” that’s featured on the reissue. Take a listen to the new alternate mix, as well as the original 1966 album version below:
Singer and pianist Cherie Hu has to put together a sweet new video for Vulfpeck lovers everywhere. She’s created a Franken-“Dean Town,” releasing a video that slices together twenty different Youtube covers of Vulfpeck’s iconic track off The Beautiful Game. And let’s just say we are all about it. Obviously, in her compilation, bass takes the day; however, some less traditional instrumentation, such as a cameo by an electric violin, make the cut as well. You can check out the video for yourself below.
For some, the days between Jazz Fest weekends are a time to rest up, and a time to explore the other elements that the city of New Orleans has to offer. For others, those who affectionately refer to those three days as the “daze between,” it’s a time to keep the party going, and to seek out more music and more unique combinations of artists that you couldn’t find anywhere else. For music fans looking to fill their time with shows, you won’t find better combination of artists than the group hitting One Eyed Jacks tonight, Wednesday, May 3rd.The group, appropriately named the “Daze Between Band,” boasts an impressive lineup of players from across the musical spectrum. Guitar master Eric Krasno is on the bill, as is Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge. Widespread Panic‘s Duane Trucks will be on drums, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis will be on keys, and Scott Metzger will fill the second guitar slot, a role he currently occupies in Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Snarky Puppy percussionist Nate Werth and The Motet singer extraordinaire Lyle Divinsky will also join the musical party. When it comes to Jazz Fest, this is simply as good as it gets. The band will be joined by DJ Soul Sister, who will set the mood with an opening set. The band also expects a few surprise guests to join them throughout the evening.Beyond being strong musical players, this crew is deeply connected through the guidance of Col. Bruce Hampton. Oteil, having been mentored by Col. Bruce through the days of his Aquarium Rescue Unit, and Duane, who grew up with Col. Bruce as an honorary member of the Trucks family, will undoubtedly play to transcend their spiritual leader. Do not miss this show – it’s going to get weird.See below for full info for this show with the “Daze Between Band” featuring Eric Krasno, Oteil Burbridge, Duane Trucks, Danny Louis, Scott Metzger, Nate Werth, and Lyle Divinsky.– SHOW INFO –Artist: The Daze Between Band featuring Eric Krasno, Oteil Burbridge, Duane Trucks, Danny Louis, Scott Metzger, Nate Werth, and Lyle Divinsky.Venue: One Eyed Jacks – 615 Toulouse Street New Orleans, LA 70130Date: Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017Price: $35adv / $40dos (purchase tickets here)Time: Doors 11:00 PM / Show 12:00 AM (technically early AM 5/4) If you’ll be down in New Orleans for Jazz Fest this year, don’t miss out on all of the awesome late night music options taking place across the city.

On May 6th, the jamtronica act Papadosio took over the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, for their second headlining performance at the legendary venue. For the Re:Creation event, the group was joined by Colorado’s own SunSquabi in addition to Supersillyus, Eliot Lipp, and Desert Dwellers. An aspect of what made the show so special was the attention brought to event as a whole, with the group also tapping visionary painters Alex and Allyson Grey to make art alongside them throughout the night while their works were projected on the screen behind them and altered Jonathan Singer.Papadosio And Sunsquabi Take Over Red Rocks For Re:Creation [Photos/Pro-Shot Video]Once Papadosio hit the stage, they put on a stellar performance for the packed crowd. One highlight of the night was their final song of the evening, “The Bionic Man Meets His Past.” Their choice of encore was off T.E.T.I.O.S., Papadosio’s two-disc 2012 release, which similarly sought to combine art and music and explore the depth of art that the two intertwining can create. You can watch the full video of Papadosio’s Red Rocks encore, which is the work of Zac Fabian and his crew, below.Photo: Brittany Teuber]
Before the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary Fare Thee Well shows, in 2015, John Mayer was still being vetted to come on tour with some of the former members of the Grateful Dead — specifically Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart — as a part of Dead & Company. As evidenced by this weekend’s smokin’ Dead & Co run in Boulder, we all know that John Mayer clearly passed the try-out process with flying colors. However, there was a time when these rumors seemed borderline ridiculous to many. After Billboard reported the rumors that John Mayer was considering being tapped for the tour, Deadheads were frenzied looking for clues to confirm these speculations.Dead & Company Sets The Bar High For The Final Night Of Their Stellar Boulder Run [Full Audio/Videos]Ahead of the official Dead & Company announcement, one major clue was John Mayer’s performance with Phil Lesh & Friends at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California, exactly two years ago on June 12th, 2015. Mayer joined the Grateful Dead bassist at his venue for Phil Lesh & Friends 1977 tribute show, which honored the Cornell ’77 show at Barton Hall on May 8th, 1977. Mayer’s addition to the line-up was a surprise, with the guitarist originally left off the initial billing for the tribute. However, Mayer stuck around for the entirety of the performance to play lead guitar (though without adding vocals), joining guitarists Stu Allen and Scott Metzger, keyboardist Scott Guberman, drummers Pete Lavezzoli and Alex Koford and vocalist Jeannette Ferber. You can watch the full performance below.Setlist: Phil Lesh & Friends | Terrapin Crossroads | San Rafael, CA | 6/12/2015Set One: New Minglewood Blues, Loser, El Paso, They Love Each Other, Jack Straw, Deal, Lazy Lightnin’, Supplication, Brown Eyed Women, Mama Tried, Row Jimmy, Dancin’ in the StreetsSet Two: Scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain, Estimated Prophet, St. Stephen > Not Fade Away > St. Stephen, Morning DewEncore: One More Saturday Night
Radiohead has relaunched their radiohead.tv page, and it’s most recent gift is pro-shot video of their 2016 Lollapalooza set.

Of the many greats to pass away in 2016 was singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen. He passed away just one month after his final release You Want It Darker, which includes the song in this new video, “Leaving The Table.” The posthumous video features an animated paper cutout of Leonard Cohen flying over the city of Montreal, with real photographers of the artist flashing in and out of the film. “I’m leaving the table,” the haunting lyrics sing. “I’m out of the game / I don’t know the people / In your picture frame.” Cohen’s final masterpiece was recorded with his son, Adam Cohen, marking the singer’s 14th studio album.‘Sincerely, L. Cohen,’ A Live Tribute To The Late Leonard Cohen To Get Official ReleaseThe video was premiered at Monday night’s Polaris Music Prize ceremony, where Cohen’s You Want It Darker was nominated for Canada’s top music award. Watch the music video, which was directed by Christopher Mills, below:
Two years ago today, on January 26th, 2016, the world was saddened by the loss of beloved character actor Abe Vigoda at the ripe age of 94. Vigoda is perhaps best remembered for his roles as Sal Tessio in The Godfather films or Detective Fish in 70’s police sitcom Barney Miller (and his own Fish spinoff series). However, fans of the Phish (that’s “ph”-Phish) will surely remember his pivotal role in the group’s 2013 Halloween show in Atlantic City, NJ.Breaking from their musical costume tradition, Phish opted to debut an album’s worth of new material during the second set on Halloween night. Tentatively-titled Wingsuit (and later renamed Fuego), easily one of the favorites from the set was the funky jam tune, “Wombat”, which name-checks Vigoda and his past work (“It’s kinda like the theme from the Fish TV show, you know, with Abe Vigoda”).During the funky tune, dancers came out onstage escorting a seemingly frail, delicate wombat (or, more accurately, “person in a wombat suit”). However, when he got to center stage, the wombat shot up straight and busted into an intricately choreographed dance routine before hunching back over and hobbling back offstage. At the end of the song, the band “unmasked” the mysterious wombat to reveal…that it was the real Abe Vigoda inside the suit all along!Of course, the then-92-year-old actor wasn’t actually the one performing the athletic dance routine, but the sneaky switch-up did provide one of the more amusing moments of the evening. You can watch Abe Vigoda’s appearance at Phish’s 2013 Halloween show below:“Wombat” featuring Abe Vigoda & The Abe Vigoda Dancers – 10/31/13…And here’s the “theme from the Fish TV show,” which “Wombat” is, indeed, “kinda like”: Then, during the following set break, the band aired a short film they had made with Vigoda which parodies one of his most famous Godfather scenes, with Mike Gordon playing the role of “Don Gordleone.” You can watch that short below via Phish’s YouTube page:Rest easy, Abe.[Cover photo via Phish YouTube]
