The Dodos are back

February 2nd, 2011

The Dodos have been one of my favorite bands for awhile. Those broken rhythms, those unique guitar tunings, unusual vocal melodies. So original, and now with a new song from No Color, “Black night“.

Boonaroo updates

March 6th, 2010

Superfly and A.C. Entertainment are proud to announce that the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has added several artists to the 2010 event, further diversifying a wonderfully eclectic and stellar lineup. Updates include Bonnaroo veterans Ween, Galactic and Umphrey’s McGee as as well as gifted singer/songwriter Brandi Carlisle and the genre- bending, post-punk trio The Gossip. A full list of confirmed acts follows.

The largest and most revered music and camping event in the country, Bonnaroo has elevated the American rock festival to an unprecedented level. The Wall Street Journal called Bonnaroo “one of rock’s best festivals,” continuing to hail that the 2009 lineup “fairly bursts with some of the most gifted acts in rock and pop.” Entertainment Weekly called it “the best of all sonic worlds,” while the New York Times said, “Bonnaroo’s very loose mandate – and a wise one for any festival – is to choose performers who deliver in a live performance, with current hits and studio expertise as lower priorities. One of the pleasures of the festival is that it defies narrowcasting: It’s not an Americana festival, an indie-rock festival, a gathering of 2008-9 hitmakers or anything but what its producers and, presumably, ticket-buyers are happy to hear.” Rolling Stone called Bonnaroo “one of the 50 moments to change the history of rock and roll.”

The Art of Noise 2010 celebrates artists who are inspired to create work that traverses the two timeless muses of Art and Music: Lionel Deluy captures contemporary music creators in-camera and morphs them to new artistic highs, Jillian Kogan incorporates elements associated with music (CDs, drugs, lyrics) into institutional declarations of patriotism, Russell Young’s lauded Pig Portraits transform iconic mugshots of musicians into silk-screened symbols of status, award-winning photographer Scott McDermott shares a selection from his Mandela Day series, each image gently pursuing meaning from the eyes and hands of renowned musicians, while Ted Riederer transforms musical performances into permanent pieces of art.

Also, as a part of the Art of Noise show, Noise Pop is throwing two free Soirees . Filter Magazine will host on Thursday the 25th and Terrobird Promotions and XLR8R will be co-hosting Friday night (with music by Shlomo, Ghosts on Tape and Lazy Brow)
