Phil Lesh assembled his friends for another four-nighter at Grate Room of Terrapin Crossroads over the weekend.  There was a decided North Mississippi flavor with the Dickinson brothers on hand, but Jackie Greene and Jason Crosby also brought their unique approach to Grateful Dead music.

David Byrne and other like-minded artists performed at a benefit for the Content Creators Coalition at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge last night and the nature of the event called for something just a bit different than a typical Byrne performance.  He is calling attention to the fact that in the US, unlike many [...]

Posted on February 12th, 2014 by steve

One of the highlights of Panic’s NYE run was the opening trio of Neil Young covers from Time Fades Away, Young’s ’73 Live Set that has never seen a proper CD release due to his inherent Neil Young-ness.  However, JB points out that it was one of the only vinyl albums that the band had [...]

Posted on February 12th, 2014 by steve

With roster changes completed, the Chicago favorites in Cornmeal are in a getting-to-know-you stage all over again.  The new and coalescing lineup is in the midst of a Midwest and Colorado swing before heading to the Northeast — they are getting their legs way they’ve always done it, by playing a shit ton of shows.

Full Show Video: Leftover Salmon @ The Vic 11/15/13

Posted on January 23rd, 2014 by steve

I expected to have a bit more coverage of this show closer to when it happened, but I hope that this makes up for it a mere two months later. Slowly, in the weeks that followed Leftover Salmons November 15th gig at The Vic, videos from YouTuber MyTallTripod have surfaced.  Not only do these look [...]

This time they came to town with a little more to prove.  Their two Land of Lincoln dates fell on the weekend before Tuesday’s official release of Last Of The Outlaws, the band’s 10 song volume of new tunes. And [...]

Did Lettuce Out-Funk Parliament-Funkadelic In Chicago? Full Show Video!

Posted on December 18th, 2013 by steve

In the same city, on the same stage, separated by just under two weeks, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic and Lettuce delivered huge sets to enthusiastic Chicago funkateers. As usual, P-Funk created an absolute spectacle (rendered here in video and Adam McCall’s superb photography), invoking their decades-in-the-making mythology to evangelize the power of the funk. Lettuce, [...]

Full Show Video: Mike Gordon @ Vic Theater 10/10/03

Posted on December 6th, 2013 by steve

With rumors of a March tour in 2014, I thought I’d be a good time to revisit Mike’s first visit to Chicago with a solo band (he had previously been through with Leo Kottke as a duo). There’s no Phish songs or notable covers, just a heavy dose of the Outside Out material.  However, this iteration of [...]

Posted on December 2nd, 2013 by steve

Lots of bands play funk music, but the weird and wonderful universe of Parliament Funkadelic IS funk.  Complete with its own mythology, cast of characters, ensemble of players, and catalog of hits which climbed to tops of charts (both in their original and sampled forms), it’s a miracle it could all be squeezed onto the [...]
