Release Date: February 18, 2014


Recorded in September of 1991, originally for Japanese TV, The Allman Brothers Band’s beloved Live At Great Woods showcases the classic American rock band reaching a new generation of audiences. Original band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe were joined by new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quiñones in one of the most powerful lineups in the group’s history. This set – recorded before a crowd of nearly 20,000 adoring fans at the Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts in Massachusetts – features a top-notch set of fan favorites, with a fiery acoustic mini-set included for good measure. This release of Live At Great Woods fills a crucial gap in The Allman Brothers Band’s videography: after years of demand, fans can experience the original longform video version of this concert (previously only available on VHS and LaserDisc), with no interruption of the main feature. Finally, fans have nothing standing between them and the top-notch performances of this set.

The band has gone on to sell over 1 million albums and is credited with inventing a music genre that remains unique today. Volume III is a video collection of over 90 minutes of ground-breaking visuals and a culmination of exclusive never-seen-before footage and music that will be released in 2018 on Megaforce Records.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of her landmark album Horses, Patti Smith and her band performed the LP in its entirety during a two-night stand at L.A.’s Wiltern Theatre in 2016. This concert film shows the godmother of punk leading her band—including original members Lenny Kaye and Jay Dee Daugherty—through stirring performances of classics like “Gloria” and “Free Money,” along with a revved-up cover of The Who’s “My Generation” with special guest Flea on bass. It's a moving reminder that at 40 years and counting, Smith’s message of freedom is as timely and powerful as it's ever been.

Original Penguin Taps Band AJR for Spring 2018 Campaign

Men’s wear brand Original Penguin has tapped New York-based indie band AJR for its spring campaign, to be released in February of next year. Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met were in Los Angeles this week to shoot the campaign as well as the music video for their single “Come Hang Out,” off their new album “The Click,” a version of which will also serve as the video campaign for OP’s spring collection.

Adam, Jack and Ryan Met of AJR. 
Jim Metzger

“The shoot is some performance and some facial expressions, sort of like acting,” said Jack Met, explaining the concept of the video. “We are at a crazy party, but we are so busy performing that we don’t really notice the party going on around us,” he said.
Adam Met explained that it’s their first time linking with a fashion brand. “Original Penguin has great style, great simplicity and a throwback vibe that mirrors our style as a band. I also like the juxtapositions in the line, like a Seventies print shirt with Nineties pants. It’s sort of our like our music, a post-modern mix.”
The band of brothers, who have been playing together for 12 years, got their start as street performers in

Band Aid, the refreshingly raw, real, and hilarious feature debut from Zoe Lister-Jones, is the story of a couple, Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally), who can't stop fighting. Advised by their therapist to try and work through their grief unconventionally, they are reminded of their shared love of music. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all their fights into song, and with the help of their neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen), they start a band. A story of love, loss, and rock and roll, Band Aid is a witty and perceptive view of modern love, with some seriously catchy pop hooks to boot.

Cuba’s Top Pianist Pays Homage To The Band That Launched His Career

NEW YORK — In 1973, a group of mostly classically trained musicians formed a band that changed the direction of Cuba’s music and reached the American mainstream for the first time since the U.S. had severed diplomatic ties with the government of Fidel Castro in 1962. With a virtuoso technique, the group smashed together an explosive mix of traditional Cuban influences, Afro-Cuban rhythms, funk, jazz rock and classical.

It was fresh, it was uniquely Cuban, and it made people dance. The group would launch the careers of some of the most important figures in Latin jazz. In a nod to the African sounds that defined the group’s identity, they called the band “Irakere” — a Yoruban word meaning “forest.”

“We wanted to create a jungle of sound,” leading Cuban pianist Chucho Valdés, who co-founded Irakere and directed the band for decades, told The Huffington Post. “When we formed Irakere, that was the moment that we separated from Cuban traditional music and became modern.”

The band became an institution, cycling through generations of Cuban musicians.

Valdés and his Afro-Cuban Messengers will play a concert Tuesday at the Town Hall titled “Irakere 40,” offering a tribute to the band more than four decades after its formation, as part of the World Music Institute’s Masters of Cuban Music series.

The band will release a live recording, “Chucho Valdés: Tribute to Irakere (Live in Marciac)” on Friday to coincide with the U.S. tour.

Tuesday’s performance, Valdés says, will offer a chance for a younger generation of musicians to give their own interpretation to Irakere’s foundational style.

“There’s 10 musicians in this band,” Valdés told HuffPost. “Of those 10, seven hadn’t been born yet when Irakere was founded. Two of them were only children. This is a tribute to a new generation.”

The big band performance will also mark a return to Valdés’ roots. Now 74 and having cemented an international reputation as one of the world’s most technically accomplished jazz pianists, Valdés in recent years has focused on performing a style of small ensemble Afro-Cuban jazz that channels the hard bop era of the 1960s.

Watch the original Irakere perform “Aguanile Bonco” below. 

Valdés says he first started to imagine the musical style that would define Irakere when he was still a student. “I was thinking of the sounds of jazz, mixed with African music,” Valdés said. The ideas solidified as he began playing with percussionist Enrique Pla and bassist Orlando “Cachaito” López, along with trumpeter Arturo Sandoval and saxophonist Paquito D’Rivera. “We were all thinking in the same terms,” Valdés said.

It’s hard to imagine a more symbolic time to pay tribute to Irakere’s pioneering work with a U.S. tour. Cuba and the United States share intertwined histories and a long tradition of reciprocal music influence. When discussing his musical influences, Valdés is as likely to mention Cuban classical pianist Ernesto Lecuona or bandleader Arsenio Rodríguez as he is to talk about jazz masters like Art Tatum or Thelonious Monk.

But the Cold War largely isolated Cuban musicians from the United States. With the severance of U.S. diplomatic relations and the advent of the U.S. trade embargo against the island in the early 1960s, Cuban musicians largely lost the ability to record in the United States, and only the most dedicated promoters attempted to arrange concerts that needed to comply with a raft of restrictions that carried the risk of last-minute cancellations if the State Department declined to approve Cuban visa applications.

Irakere was one of the few Cuban bands of the 1970s to make it into the U.S. mainstream. After a series of complicated negotiations with both governments, Columbia managed to sign Irakere to a record deal in 1978 and bring the band to tour the United States. The money from the record deal went into a fund to support Cuban musicians touring the United States, since the embargo forbade Columbia from paying royalties to Cubans, according to Rolling Stone.

Watch Irakere perform on Puerto Rican television in a performance recorded in the 1980s. 

While the United State helped propel the band to international stardom, it also symbolized political disagreements among the band’s founding generation. During a tour in Spain in 1980, D’Rivera defected. He went on to build an illustrious solo career in the United States.

Sandoval left Irakere to start a solo career in 1981 and defected to the United States as well in 1990, climbing to similar heights of commercial success in exile. Both D’Rivera and Sandoval are outspoken critics of the Castro brothers’ Communist government.

Valdés, on the other hand, remained in Cuba, where he built Irakere into an institution, cultivating generations of younger musicians, much in the tradition of jazz drummer and bandleader Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. (The name of Valdés’ current band, the Afro-Cuban Messengers, is a nod to Blakey.)

Despite the logistical barriers, Valdés has visited the United States regularly over the last 30 years to perform. But playing in U.S. venues this time around has been made much easier because of the historic restoration of formal diplomatic relations initiated by President Barack Obama and Cuban head of state Raúl Castro on Dec. 17.

“It was incredibly easier to bring the Cuban musicians over,” World Music Institute Artistic Director Par Neiburger told HuffPost. “At this point, it was no more difficult than to bring anyone else than from any other country.”

For the moment, Valdés says there are no plans to reunite the group’s founding members.

“Each one of us took our own path,” Valdés says of his former bandmates. “We all have had amazing careers. It’s very difficult for us to reunite. So what I think is more beautiful is to do something with new musicians, with a new generation.”

Chucho Valdés picks five must-hear Cuban songs

HuffPost asked Valdés to name five songs that everyone needs to hear in order to understand Cuban music. The first, “El Manisero,” is perhaps the most covered song in the Cuban repertoire, and the melody will be familiar to many American listeners — though this recording by Valdés offers an unusual interpretation. “Tres Lindas Cubanas” is a classic danzón, a traditional style of Cuban dance music. “Dile a Catalina” was written by Arsenio Rodríguez, one of the greatest exponents of the mambo. Bebo Valdés, Chucho’s father and his first piano instructor, penned “Mayajigua.” The last song, “Mambo Inn,” is by Afro-Cuban jazz pioneer Mario Bauzá. 

Though Valdés said five can’t begin to scratch the surface, they help give an idea of what Cuban music is all about. “It’s very difficult,” Valdés said. “Imagine, there’s so many. But these are characteristic of the purity of Cuban music.”

Band of Outsiders’ Intellectual Property, Inventory To Be Auctioned

BAND OF BIDS: Band of Outsiders’ intellectual property rights and inventory are to be put up for auction. According to a public notice placed in today’s weekly print issue of WWD and the Wall Street Journal, the brand’s secured creditor, Belgian fashion fund CLCC SA will hold a public auction on July 29 at the offices of its legal representation, Otterbourg P.C.
News that Band of Outsiders had canceled its fall line and laid off staff first broke on May 26. The label has since closed its retail operations at 70 Wooster Street, following a liquidation sale. A source close to the situation told WWD that CLCC SA gained peaceful possession of Band of Outsiders’ assets after the label was unable to make payment on a credit line of more than $ 2 million. Despite the label’s liquidation efforts, the inventory to be auctioned still includes more than 5,000 units, the source said.
It is understood that Alan Cohen of Abacus Advisors Group — who is overseeing next week’s auction — is taking a wait-and-see approach when it comes to selling the brand’s intellectual property and inventory as a single asset or as separate entities. “They are going to take offers for both assets and individually…depending

A Band Called Death

Mark Christopher Covino & Jeff Howlett

Genre: Documentary

Price: $ 7.99

Rental Price: $ 0.99

Release Date: June 28, 2013


Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early '70s formed a band in their spare bedroom, began playing a few local gigs and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed. But this was the era of Motown and emerging disco. Record companies found Death’s music— and band name—too intimidating, and the group were never given a fair shot, disbanding before they even completed one album. Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family love story, A Band Called Death chronicles the incredible fairy-tale journey of what happened almost three decades later, when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger. Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now being credited as the first black punk band (hell…the first punk band!), and are finally receiving their long overdue recognition as true rock pioneers.

The Allman Brothers Band: Live At Great Woods

The Allman Brothers Band

Genre: Concert Films

Price: $ 12.99

Rental Price: $ 2.99

Release Date: February 18, 2014


Recorded in September of 1991, originally for Japanese TV, The Allman Brothers Band’s beloved Live At Great Woods showcases the classic American rock band reaching a new generation of audiences. Original band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe were joined by new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quiñones in one of the most powerful lineups in the group’s history. This set – recorded before a crowd of nearly 20,000 adoring fans at the Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts in Massachusetts – features a top-notch set of fan favorites, with a fiery acoustic mini-set included for good measure. This release of Live At Great Woods fills a crucial gap in The Allman Brothers Band’s videography: after years of demand, fans can experience the original longform video version of this concert (previously only available on VHS and LaserDisc), with no interruption of the main feature. Finally, fans have nothing standing between them and the top-notch performances of this set.

What It Would Be Like If Key And Peele (And 2 Chainz) Formed A Wedding Band

 

The key to a great wedding reception is great music. And the key to great wedding music is Key and Peele. 

In a new YouTube sketch, the comedy duo play members of a fictional Scottsdale, Arizona-based wedding band called Absorption. 

“What we do is take popular songs and we tailor-make them to your wedding so they can only be performed for your wedding,” Key says. 

In other words, wedding dance floor mainstays are rewritten for the marrying couple. “A little ditty about Jack and Diane” becomes “A little ditty about Rooja and Padmalaya, two American kids growing up eating tikka masala.”

Another tune in Absorption’s repertoire is Macklemore’s same-sex wedding anthem “Same Love,” which they flawlessly revamped and personalized for two of their clients. 

“They can’t change even if they try, even if we wanted them to. Chris keeps Chris warm, Chris keeps Chris warm.” 

And if couples want to take things up a notch, they can always upgrade to the deluxe package, which features performer Master Collaborator — a.k.a. 2 Chainz with a saxophone.

Our advice: definitely splurge for the deluxe package.

ASSEMBLAGE: Meet Queer Punk Band bottoms

“ASSEMBLAGE“ is an inquiry into the different ways artists utilize performance and technology to explore and express different notions of identity. An effort to push forward marginalized artists with a focus on people of color, non-western nationalities and those along the queer/trans spectrum, “ASSEMBLAGE” provides a platform for analysis of how art and performance intersect with the lives of these individuals who are visibly and openly existing in the digital age. This is the eighth installment.

Queer punk band bottoms is a musical grouping unlike any other. Made up of two performers — Jake Dibeler and Simon Leahy aka Babes Trust — and drummer Michael Prommasit, bottoms is a project that in many ways explores the complicated, nuanced relationship queer people have with themselves and the world around them in 2015.

bottoms came into fruition a bit over a year ago following the break-up of Leahy and Prommasit’s previous band Teeth. Dibeler joined the group as the lead vocalist — a style of vocalization that can only be described as high-pitched screaming in a way that almost sounds manufactured but, in reality, is Dibeler’s actual voice.

Dibeler’s voice aside, what makes bottoms so unique and important is the hyper-political nature of their work and the shades of queer identity and experience encapsulated in the group’s lyrics.

The queer community is at a strange and significant moment in time, as we move out of the aftermath of the AIDS crisis and into an era marked by PrEP, instantaneous access to sex, mainstream transgender visibility and the legalization of same-sex marriage. As specific types of queers become more visible and our relationships with sex, institutions and governance shift, we are at a place where many people are reimagining or rethinking what it means to be queer.

bottom’s music heavily explores the intersection of this complicated history marked by violence and disease and modern day realities surrounding visibility and sex.

“We’re really interested in a lot of the culture surrounding the gay community during the time of the AIDS crisis,” Diebler told The Huffington Post. “There was a great resistance from the conservatives to acknowledge the crisis, so the gay community had to look to each other for support. I hope that bottoms can harness that same sort of energy — angry queers with a message. I think that we’re in this place as gays that’s very apathetic. Being able to fuck dudes from your phone in minutes is amazing, PrEP is amazing, but it really makes for this sort of ‘pre-AIDS-there’s-nothing-wrong’ mentality — and maybe that’s true, maybe nothing is wrong and this is the end of HIV and AIDS. But at the moment — I think we need to balance this ‘have unprotected sex with a stranger in an alley’ attitude with one of respect and care for a community that lost a huge chunk of themselves in the 90s.”

bottoms also deals with notions of shame and self-hatred, shared realities for queer people navigating the world we operate in since the beginning of time. As with any way of existing the world, it can be hard to communicate the realities of queer experience to those who haven’t felt the effects of growing up as a faggot, trans person, or anywhere along the queer spectrum. For this reason, music — or more broadly, performance — serves as an immensely valuable tool to tell these stories authentically and unapologetically and, hopefully, change our culture.

As Dark Matter mentioned in a previous installment of ASSEMBLAGE, “no matter how many policies we change, no matter how many legislations we pass, people’s hearts and minds aren’t going to change. The only way to actually change people’s hearts and minds is to engage them with feeling and emotion. Because often oppression is incredibly irrational.” Using art and performance to open a dialogue about these different shades of queer experience, like learned shame and self-hatred, is very present in the work of bottoms. The group’s first music video, “My Body,” is about the complicated relationships queer people have with their bodies, from issues of gay body shame to the spectrum of transgender identity. Brooklyn performer Macy Rodman stars in the “My Body” video, below.

Performance, of course, also serves a dual role for the performer in the exploration of their own sense of self throughout this process of authentic storytelling. Within the context of a queer punk band like bottoms, the experiences being talked — or screamed — about are tangible, real and felt by every queer person in the room. At the risk of making a claim about universal queer experience (of which there is none) it can often feel very much that the pain, struggle, freedom and history of what it means to be a queer person bleeds through bottoms’ performances in an unapologetic way that truly does connect with any random queer watching from the audience — which is truly a remarkable accomplishment for any artist.

“I’m definitely always performing — literally always,” Dibeler elabprated. “‘All the worlds a stage,’ all that bullshit. It’s true, every moment is basically a standup comedy show for me, whether you want to be there or not. bottoms doesn’t really step into a role when we get on stage, and it’s the same with my own performances. I think a reason why it’s relatable in this way is because you can actually see a real person on the stage. That’s actually why I don’t really like being on stage when I perform. I’d rather be in the audience because I think it’s important to break down that wall of this ‘We’re a band and you’re an audience and you’re here to stand and listen to us.’ We want the audience to be, like, ‘Those fags in wigs are screaming about death and disease and fear are me, and I am a part of this too.'”

bottoms

As the nature of what it means to be a queer person shifts and changes with the passing of time, one can only hope that we always have art and performance that accurately reflect the intricate nuances of what these experiences are like — politically, socially, emotionally, physically.

At this strange and complicated period for the queer community, bottoms seems to be accomplishing this in an impressive way that is not only informed by our history with AIDS, persecution and violence but also the current climate of agency and self-identification that parallels mainstream LGBT “acceptance.” We hope to see more work like this from others along the spectrum of queer performance in the future.

bottoms is currently prepping to record the group’s second EP later this summer.. Their first EP, “Goodbye,” can be found here or head here for their Soundcloud.
