Los Lobos Announces Summer Tour Plans Los Lobos Announces Summer Tour Plans
[ Jun 9, 2010 - Share ]

Los Lobos, the Grammy-winning East L.A. band, is on tour this summer in support of a brand new studio album. The new release, titled Tin Can Trust will hit streets on August 3, 2010. The band’s summer schedule brings them coast to coast, including a run of select shows with John Hiatt & The Combo. A complete list of currently confirmed dates is included below.

With Tin Can Trust—Los Lobos’ first release for Shout! Factory and first collection of new original material in four years— the venerable quintet once again redefines itself and expands its scope, while never losing sight of where they come from. And, like so much of Los Lobos’ previous work, Tin Can Trust is an album that speaks to the time and place in which it was conceived; the album’s title can be traced back more than a century, but for the band, it’s apt for the rickety state in which so many of us find ourselves—...

Los Lobos Cancel Arizona Performance Los Lobos Cancel Arizona Performance
[ Jun 4, 2010 - Share ]

Grammy Award winning roots-rock band Los Lobos has decided to cancel their scheduled performance at The Talking Stick Resort on June 10th, 2010. The band has made this decision based on the current call to boycott Arizona in response to SB 1070.

Through their management, Los Lobos issued the following statement: “We support the boycott of Arizona. The new law will inevitably lead to unfair racial profiling and possible abuse of people who just happen to look Latino. As a result, in good conscience, we could not see ourselves performing in Arizona. We regret the inconvenience this may have caused the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community, Casino Arizona, Talking Stick Resort and our fans, but we feel strongly that it is the right thing to do.”17356

The members of Los Lobos are Steve Berlin, David Hidalgo, Conrad Lozano, Cesar Rosas and Louie Perez.

Hart says, "This music will take you to a very special place, I think. It’s like a super friendly rhythm snake that has wrapped itself around the world a few times and now it’s coming our way. It’s electric; it’s got rhythm, has words and flies. It’s the Rhythm Devils."

Joining Hart and Kreutzmann in the Rhythm Devils for this tour will be Nigerian talking drum master Sikiru Adepoju, returning from the last RD tour in 2006, Back Door Slam’s Davy Knowles (guitar, vocals) and Andy He...

AUSTIN, Texas ¡ª The Band of Heathens, whose current album One Foot in the Ether reached #1 on the Americana airplay charts and has won critical kudos from the indie-rock, alt-country and jam press alike, were nominated this week in the Americana Honors & Awards category of "Best Duo or Group."

Today, Keller Williams releases his first-ever all-covers collection, amusingly titled Thief. Recorded with the Keels—husband and wife duo Larry and Jenny Keel—Thief includes songs originally written and recorded by as wildly diverse an assemblage as anyone’s ever likely to dream up.

Thief offers up Keller-versions of songs by an [almost] unthinkable collection of artists: from Amy Winehouse ("Rehab") to the Grateful Dead ("Mountains of the Moon"), the Butthole Surfers ("Pepper") to Kris Kristofferson ("Don’t Cuss That Fiddle," which opens the album, and "The Year 2003 Minus 25," which closes the album). The set is filled out with tunes by Ryan Adams, the Presidents of the United States of America, the Raconteurs, Patterson Hood, Danny Barnes, Cracker, the Yonder Mountain String Band and Marcy Playground.17356 All over the place, indeed, but that’s the way Williams likes it.

Acclaimed Nashville Singer Tori Sparks and Local Favorite Rhyne McCormick Live in Harrisburg Acclaimed Nashville Singer Tori Sparks and Local Favorite Rhyne McCormick Live in Harrisburg
[ May 13, 2010 - Share ]

Harrisburg, PA (May 7th, 2009) - Award-winning chanteuse and internationally acclaimed Nashville songwriter Tori Sparks will return to the Harrisburg area this month. She will play The First Capital Dispensing Company in York on May 17th (9:30pm), The Stage on Herr at HMAC in Harrisburg on May 18th (8pm), and a live radio performance on WMRF in Lewistown on May 19th (8:30am). Rhyne McCormick will open or co-bill all three dates.

Tori Sparks played 2009's Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg and was a special guest at the American MusicFest in 2008. Called "a knockout" by the Village Voice, her dynamic live show is equal parts soulful singing and zany stand-up-style humor. Tori's acclaimed third album, The Scorpion in the Story, was co-produced with indie rock veteran David Henry (R.E.M., Ben Folds, Josh Rouse, Widespread Panic, Cowboy Junkies).17356 The album was released on Glass Mountain Records last year. It broke the Top 100 on the Americana Radio Charts, and is cur...

30db, the unassuming collaboration between guitarist Brendan Bayliss of the improvisational Chicago band Umphrey’s McGee and mandolinist Jeff Austin of Boulder’s top-flight Americana unit Yonder Mountain String Band, is creating buzz among critics and fans alike. The super group - which also features Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi All Stars), Nick Forster (Hot Rize) and Eric Thorin (Open Road)– is playing select cities this month is support of their new release, One Man Show.

With three shows down (the band performed last week to packed houses in Minneapolis, Madison, and Chicago) and only four more on the books (at least for now), 30db is turning out to be one of the most intriguing collaborations of the season. Here’s what critics are saying:17356

FloydFest 9 Finalizes Performer LineUp FloydFest 9 Finalizes Performer LineUp
[ Apr 23, 2010 - Share ]

If the first FloydFest ever, 9 years ago, was ‘groundbreaking’ in its genre-defying globally-infused line-up (not to mention its meteoric rise from the humble one-stoplight-town of ‘Floyd’ Virginia) FloydFest 9, in 2010, is still "Breaking Ground." FloydFest re-images itself annually, unveiling new graphic artwork and a thematic tag line every December, with the advent of ticket sales for the new season (2009 was ‘Revival’, 2008 ‘A Family Affair’), and this year’s theme of ‘Breaking Ground’ seems to have both literal and metaphoric meaning. Metaphoric in the sense that in its near-decade of existence, this festival has been nurtured and tended, willed into full flowery fruition, by the grassroots energies of its faithful followers, and literal in the sense that, with a strong emphasis this year on performance art, patrons will gasp in awe at the "dazzling public spectacle of daredevil acrobatics, pyrotechnics, and mastery of light, air and fire" that best describes Flam Chen thea...

The forward-thinking band Umphrey’s McGee will carve out new terrain in musical interactivity with their fans at the first "UMBowl," an unprecedented 4-quarter evening-long concert on Saturday, April 24th, at Lincoln Hall in the group’s hometown of Chicago.
