Jeff Tweedy at Beacon High School

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Jeff Tweedy, the lead singer of Wilco play an acoustic set in the small intimate auditorium at Beacon High School for the charity "Clearwater". The night started with Pete Seeger leading the audience in a magical singalong of "somewhere over the rainbow" and then playing some enviromental songs with kids from the local elementary school. But when Tweedy took the stage he just flat out killed it. Playing a set list comprised of old favorites (Hummingbird, Remember The Mountain Bed, Via Chicago,) and some new songs including Wilco (The Song). Tweedy conversed with the crowd quite a bit and was hilarious. Pete Seeger and his grandson came out to sing some songs and then Tweedy treated the audience to two unplugged songs in honor of "Earth Hour". I recorded the first one "Someone Else's Song" check out the video below as well as some pictures from the night.

Interesting New Releases March 17th 2009

 In new releases this week we have three albums ive really been looking forward too. First of all we have the new Bonnie Prince Billy album "Beware". His last album "Lie Down In The Light" was fantastic and this one promises more of the same. There's also The Decemberists new prog rock opera "The Hazards Of Love". I've heard this one, and i recommend it (a review of that one coming soon). Lastly, we have White Lies first LP "To Lose My Life". White Lies is a up and coming british band who like many before them echo Joy Division but they do make good music and i am looking forward to spending some time with that album.

Voxtrot- Trepanation Party

Ever since i saw them opening for Arctic Monkeys in central park i've been a huge fan of Voxtrot. They have such great tunes and bring alot of energy. If you dont have any of their stuff i recommend their EP "Raised By Wolves". I've been waiting for them to release new stuff for awhile now and finally we have some! The new single "Trepanation Party" is a somewhat different sound but overall it sticks true to their roots.

Face Control is really good!

the new record from Dan from Wolf Parade and his wife is really excellent. 

favorite track so far: "Im Confused"..... check the mp3 below'm%20Confused.mp3

New Deerhunter

a video has popped up on the interweb of Deerhunter playing a new song in a practice space, sounds like there followup to Microcastle might be a poppier record 

This weeks best new releases

theres three prettty interesting releases this week. The first being MSTRKRFT's "Fist of God". This record seems like more of the same from these guys, Justice inspired jams with rapper cameo's. another release is "It's Blitz" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. This record leaked awhile ago but its got some really aweosme songs and is definatly worth checking out. Another one that you should definatly check out is the new Handsome Furs record "Face Control". Dan's stuff with Wolf Parade is good and this is definatly worth checking out on the merit of that alone.

(I had to post the Fist of God cover, it is pretty sweet)

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

has anyone else been watching Late Night with Jimmy Fallon?

i went in with low expectations but so far ive been pleasently suprised. Admitedly he started off pretty nervous but he was excellent with Tina Fey. The music so far has been ace with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Santigold, and Van Morrison. Also The Roots are his house band! its worth it to tune in just to see ?uestlove and his beautiful beautiful Fro'
