Your Best Bets For Holiday Choir Concerts

November 12, 2013

Star-studded ‘Human Rights Concerts’ debut on DVD this week

With its amazing museums, art schools and orchestra, the vast talent in Philadelphia is unprecedented. To visit this city without exploring what it has to offer in the form of art and music would be a waste of a trip. We've come up with a best of Philly choir list for you to enjoy whether you are here to visit, live here or want to drive in for an excellent evening of entertainment by some of Philadelphia's greatest treasures. The Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus P.O. Box 30185 www.pgmc.org The Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus started in 1981 and has since become a great contributor to Philadelphia arts society and the LGBT community. The chorus performs scheduled events in the months of December, March and June. It also performs at a variety of community events. The Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus has been involved in many special events, including performing at an awards ceremony honoring actor and gay activist Sir Ian McKellen. The Chorus was the opening performer at the first Equality Forum celebration, and performed in an AIDS benefit with local idols Sally Starr and Juanita Holiday. St. Thomas Gospel Choir The African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas 6361 Lancaster Ave.

The best concerts to see in Denver this week

11 2013 at 7:00 AM WEDS | NINE INCH NAILS at 1STBANK CENTER | 11/13/13 After what had originally been billed as the band's retirement in 2009, Nine Inch Nails returned from the dead this year to release a new album, Hesitation Marks. The project received a mixed response from fans and critics: Some bemoaned the smoother edges of the act's sound, which has arguably lost some of the drug-fueled, nihilistic industrial aesthetic displayed on earlier records, while some heard new cuts such as "Came Back Haunted" and still clearly recognized the sonic footprint of era-defining musical innovator Trent Reznor. The tour thus far has offered up new material along with updated takes on older tunes, but even purists can't deny that the band's live show remains as powerful as previous incarnations. Added bonus: Explosions In the Sky and Sleeping with Sirens are slated to open this show. MON | THE BLACK CROWES at BOULDER THEATER |11/11/13 In the late '80s, many young musicians were embracing the myth of the '60s. In 1989, the Black Crowes (also due three nights at the Ogden Theatre on Wednesday, November 13, Friday, November 15, and Saturday, November 16 ) emerged from that cultural backdrop with a bluesy, '70s-hard-rock edge and jangle-inflected improvisational inclinations, presaging virtually every element of the most recent wave of classic-rock revisionism. Their debut album, 1990's Shake Your Money Maker, was a massive success on the strength of the band's take on the Otis Redding staple "Hard to Handle." Famously tumultuous interband dynamics notwithstanding, the Crowes have persevered -- partly because they grew into a great rock-and-roll band, and partly because there is no denying the charisma and wit of frontman Chris Robinson. FRI | DELTRON 3030 at BOOM FESTIVAL, 1STBANK CENTER | 11/15/13 Deltron 3030 isn't so much a group or an album as it is a mode of thought, and there are few hip-hop albums (or albums of any genre, for that matter) with the cinematic quality of this act's self-titled debut. Dan the Automator created deeply textured and darkly evocative soundscapes, aided by Kid Koala's turntablism, as a backdrop for Teren Delvon Jones (aka Del tha Funkee Homosapien, aka Deltron Zero) to tell the tale of how he becomes Galactic Rhyme Federation Champion. Similar to Dan the Automator's earlier work with Kool Keith, Dr. Octagonecologyst, but more coherent and accessible, this album proved that hip-hop could successfully travel to a place that only geeks had gone before: Silly non sequiturs, outer space fantasy and ridiculous characters all became fair game, and so did the out-crowd that relished them. Deltron 3030 returns to Denver with a new album, Event 2, as part of the Boom Festival, which is being headlined by Excision and features Funtcase, Cookie Monsta and more. TUES | STEVE AOKI at OGDEN THEATRE | 11/12/13 As founder of the now-famous DimMak record label, Steve Aoki has built his dance party into an empire. Pulling nearly every hard working act in pop music on board, his tracks all focus around one idea, and that is to make sure your ass is partying. His live show antics range from paddling through the crowd on a raft, tossing cake into the screaming audience, and stage diving right into the heart of the party. Essentially, Aoki helped usher in the hyper party of a concert, but his electro-house music alone can keep you sweating well into the night. FRI | NAS at SOGNAR'S SHREDDED BEATS, CERVANTES | 11/15/13 Though he is a legend in most every rap fan's book, Nas suffers an inescapable qualifier of his own making: the inability to escape the shadow of his legendary debut. This had even led some to label Nas overrated, saying the rest of his work is only weak in comparison to his greatest. It's clear that no rapper could have adequately followed Illmatic because the album remains, to this day, hip-hop's greatest, most perfect treasure. And even if he hasn't made another classic album, per se, Nas has earned plenty of other accolades that would make a lesser rapper's career.

Lose Yourself In The Music! Karaoke Goes Hip Hop

November 12, 2013

Jim Smiley raps on top albums, no restrictions in hip hop, and BET Cypher

Jim Smiley raps on top albums, no restrictions in hip hop, and BET Cypher One event, which takes place every Thursday at The Social in Soho, gives budding rappers the chance to channel their inner Missy Elliot and Notorious B.I.G. Hot new night: Hip Hop Karaoke, which invites amateur rappers to the stage to perform in front of a cheering crowd is hitting the mainstream Akin to a scene in 8 Mile, which sees Eminem take to the stage and bust out a fierce rendition of Lose Yourself, Hip Hop Karaoke really is the place to lose yourself in the music. Describing the night on its website, it says: 'We let you get on the mic and act out your rap fantasies to the fullest. 'Whether that includes teaming up with friends to rock through a Wu-Tang jam, living the lyrical high life like Jay-Z or Drake, bawsin it like Rick Ross, celebrating summertime with The Fresh Prince or acting all crazy like Nicki Minaj.' The 5 night is hosted by a peppy gold jacket-clad man who goes by the name of Bobby Champagne junior (think a young Tim Westwood). He enforces a 'no booing' rule so everyone can feel like Lil Wayne (even if they don't sound like him). The NEW coolest night out? Hip Hop Karaoke Lose yourself in the music: Fancy channeling your inner Eminem? There's no better place In between the live acts, the rammed crowd get low to tunes from Nars, Busta Rhymes and Fat Joe. Their weekly event has become a roadblock, with wannabee rappers often queuing for hours to get in. They have also taken it on the road to Glastonbury, V Festival, Bestival, Isle Of Wight Festival, hosted parties and seen the likes of Wretch 32 and Daniel Bedingfield take to the stage. Catherine Smith, a first time rapper, said: 'I got up on stage and felt exhilarated as I sang Eminem in front of hundreds of cheering people.

Rock on: If hip hop isn Versatility. The reason I'm able to do as many shows as I do, is because of the different sounds and songs I have. There isn't a venue I can't rock, because I have music for everyone. Rather it be the streets, club, lyrical. You name it, and I can bring it. Is there anything special that you need to have or need to do before any of your performances? A beer...yeah, I'd say a few beers. How do you generally come up with the lyrics for your songs?

Hip-hop Rumors: Peter Gunz Aired Out His Cheating On ‘lhhny’ For Money

November 2, 2013

Hip Hop in the Rock Hall Is Cool

The biggest question people have is, why would he do this knowing he would get hardcore busted. Welp, he did it for the money and because he knew that his sloppiness would get him caught up anyway but really more because of the money. Peter Gunz chatted wit Sway and talked about how hes strapped for cash. His single, Deja Vu did well but Steely Dan got all the money from that because they own the publishing. Gunz said that despite having rich friends, he didnt want to mooch off of anyone so he moved forward with Love and Hip-Hop. I was gonna get busted anyway so let me get paid to get busted, he said. Hey, at least hes holding himself accountable. Check out the full interview below (money conversation starts at about 4:55).

Peter Gunz Since then, the notions of what exactly constitutes Rock & Roll -- and Rock without the aforementioned Roll -- have never stopped shifting. But let there be no doubt that our greatest rappers yesterday and today have a direct, profound and legitimate connection to the energy, rebellious spirit and lyrical directness of our Rock & Roll groundbreakers like Chuck Berry and Little Richard and beyond. These connections go far beyond race. That's why Eminem -- who memorably inducted Run-DMC into the Rock Hall -- will obviously belong in the Hall someday soon, and why my friend LL COOL J -- clearly one of rap's defining superstars who's on the ballot this year -- has very much earned his place in the Rock Hall. Beyond all he has done for Rap, the fact is that LL has become one of the most enduring and inspiring success stories to ever come out of Hip hop. And let's not underestimate the fact that a key figure in Rap history has now for years served as the excellent host for Music's Biggest Night, The Grammy Awards. As I see it --and hear it -- having a great and influential Hip Hop artists -- like LL COOL J -- in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame only make the Hall that much cooler.

Jill Wedel - Austin rock music Examiner - Music

With the boulder bearing the image of an eagle in flight lording over it, the annual Eagle Rock Music Festival celebrates 15 years on Saturday by taking over the neighborhood's business district. Featuring multiple stages, the day-long party will echo through the hills of Northeast Los Angeles with experimental electronic and ambient music, Americana, rock, global bass, jazz, blues and punk, as well as food and family-centered action. It's an impressive and adventurous roster, featuring artists Bosnian Rainbows, Poolside, Boardwalk, Nguzunguzu, Dub Club and a few dozen others, and presents evidence of the vibrant music community that has blossomed in the area. Over the span of the festival's life, Eagle Rock and its sister neighborhoods Highland Park and Atwater Village have become independent music havens, home to labels including Friends of Friends, Innovative Leisure, Stones Throw, Now-Again, Alpha Pup, Brainfeeder and others. Studios and indie biz offices dot corners, and no fewer than four fantastic record stores sell choice, expertly curated music. RELATED: The 10 Commandments of smartphone use during concerts Perhaps most important for the area's long-term prospects, the proceeds from the festival will help fund the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, a nonprofit space near the corner of Eagle Rock and Colorado that programs art camps, after-school classes, workshops -- one on the xylophone begins on Oct. 14 (!) -- and concerts. Its mission is to ensure that the area remains an arts hub for generations to come. The space has long been utilized by taste-making promoters FYF for innovative gigs and represents the area's dominant population with evenings of Latin American-focused music. Friday night, for example, the center will host the monthly "Noches de Trova," which features Mexican and Latin American singer-songwriters drawing on bolero, ranchera, country, jazz, folk and blues music. Saturday's music festival roster is all over the place. Those looking for heavy rhythm should note Nguzunguzu, whose tracks are typified by tribal, polyglot beats and psychedelic washes of synthetics. The smoother-grooved duo Poolside celebrates the more casual aspects of dance music, a team "inspired by California, mezcal, dancing, good food and friends." The beguiling duo Boardwalk, which has an excellent new album out on Stones Throw, promises to be a highlight. INTERACTIVE: A festival for every fan SoCal's yearly sonic lineup The biggest influx of fans will no doubt arrive for Bosnian Rainbows, though. The group was formed by At the Drive In and Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, and his devoted followers are legion. Born as Rodriguez-Lopez went on hiatus from the Mars Volta, the Rainbows features the shockingly charismatic lead singer Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes. A children's stage will host, among others, the uniquely Angleno work of the Bob Baker Marionettes. An experimental stage will be headlined by the modern dance troupe/music ensemble String Theory. The global bass stage should have tummies rumbling with the wild cumbia/new wave group El Conjunto Nueva Ola. The weekly Boyle Heights global bass party Subsuelo will connect the dots among the beat-based subgenres. Taken as a whole, the roster should offer a fascinating glimpse at the Eastside culture clash that is Eagle Rock and Northeast Los Angeles. ALSO:

Eagle Rock Music Fest celebrates 15 years with culture-clash lineup

Iconic rock guitars and their owners 1 hit in early 66. The tunes signature, insistent organ part was played by Frank Rodriguez, who was only 14 years old when he created rock history on the Vox Continental. From: Brain Salad Surgery (1973) You cant have the Top 10 Organ Rock Songs without a contribution from Keith Emerson , who might be the most gifted keyboardist in rock history. Theres no greater testament to his talents than this 30-minute epic. Emerson wrote the music for all three parts of Karn Evil 9 and even made his only ELP vocal contribution (modulated by his Moog) during the Second Impression. The best-known segment of the piece is the second part of the First Impression (Welcome back, my friends), a classic rock radio staple which features slatherings of Emersons Hammond and Moog keyboards throughout. Single (1964) An organ doesnt kick off the song and its probably not the thing you noticed the first time you heard this Animals classic (that honor belongs to Eric Burdon s rock quarry vocals). But Alan Prices Vox Continental seeps in slowly, then builds carefully to match Burdons wail with its own soulful histrionics enhancing the tragedy of this dirge. The funeral organ even gets the last, mournful word as the dust settles on the bands titanic cover. Price was given sole credit for re-arranging this cover, simply because the names of all five band members wouldnt fit and Alan came first alphabetically (oh, the 60s). From: Vanilla Fudge (1967) The psychedelic rockers slowed-down-and-dirty take on the Supremes hit was more like Vanilla Sludge. Mark Steins haunting organ intro is the perfect counterpoint to the machine-gun drumming in store from Carmine Appice. Stein (who also sings) wafts his Hammond through the song, letting it hover inches above the proto-metal violence underneath. It all makes for the best bad dream youve ever had. From: Led Zeppelin (1969) Zeppelin took plenty of shots for encouraging occult activities, but the brilliant John Paul Jones takes us to church on the extended intro of Your Time is Gonna Come, from the bands debut. Jones seems to be playing an organ as big as the Sistine Chapel when he slides into the chorus, gliding alongside Jimmy Page s out-of-tune-but-it-works-anyway steel guitar. John Bonham made the track sound heavy; Jones made it sound enormous. From: Music From Big Pink (1968) The most psychedelic tune to come out of Big Pink, Chest Fever is a showcase for Garth Hudson. The Bands organ player was like a mad scientist on stage, conjuring these swirling, slurring sounds from behind a bank of keyboards. In concert, Hudson would perform a lengthy organ solo before Chest Fever, but on the recorded version, he delivers a short, but imposing, intro based on Bachs Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (yep, Bachs back again). Then he kicks into the roaring riff that powers the entire song. Single (1966) Its a gimme that this stomp-along hit would be one of the Top 10 Organ Rock Songs. Gimme Some Lovin has got a great groove, and Steve Winwood sure packed plenty of blue-eyed soul into his singing, but the organ riff makes it. More than just the riff its the sound of that organ. Young Stevie wields his Hammond B-3 like a bulldozer. He could take out entire city blocks with that riff. Bone-shattering, teeth-ratting brilliance. From: Shades of Deep Purple (1968) All hail the lord of the Hammond, Deep Purples late, great Jon Lord .

Anyway, when division rivals meet in a regular-season rematch, send it in on the smart kids. Patriots by 17. I know why you're taking a shot at R.E.M. and Radiohead - the two bookend bands of my life. I guess it's payback for the late hit on Namath. R.E.M. was my favorite group all through college and into http://www.bestshowticketslasvegas.net/ early adulthood, and it's been Radiohead for almost two decades now. You don't have to like them. Hell, I don't care if anyone else likes them. Fables of the Reconstruction will always feel like an old friend to me. Lifes Rich Pageant, too. The Bends will always stand out as the best 1990s record to me. This stuff is all subjective, anyway. There are millions of people out there who don't realize Coldplay pretty much sucks.

Amnesty International releases a compilation of human rights concerts from 1986-1998. (Photo: Picasa) SHARE 4 CONNECT 7 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE The historic Human Rights Concerts staged by Amnesty International from 1986 to 1998 will be released as RELEASED!, a six-DVD box set and companion double CD on Nov. 5 by Shout! Factory. The release coincides with the 25th anniversary of the 1988 Human Rights Now! world tour with headliners Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman and Youssou N'Dour. The six-week trek across five continents drew more than 1 million attendees and was televised to millions, tripling Amnesty's global membership. The sets also herald the 65th anniversary on Dec. 10 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a guiding document during Amnesty's 52 years of campaigning for human rights. Net proceeds from sales of the sets will benefit the Nobel Peace Prize-winning organization. The DVD set features 36 musicians performing 120 songs over 12 hours. Five hours of extras flesh out the package. Three of the four films have never been issued previously in video or audio format. The 1998 concert film had a limited release and has long been unavailable. Jack Healey, executive director of Amnesty International USA from 1981 to 1993, was pivotal in organizing the first three events. Legendary rock promoter Bill Graham co-produced the 1986 and 1988 tour, and Peter Gabriel and Amnesty's Blair Gibb organized the 1998 Paris concert. The Human Rights Concerts were restored and produced by Martin Lewis, who co-created Amnesty's Secret Policeman's Ball series with John Cleese. "I was looking for something I could do," Bruce Springsteen said in a statement, referring to his initial Amnesty performances in 1988. "I would just devote some of my energies to something that felt worth putting our time in. And Amnesty was a great organization and it was just a perfect fit at that moment. You have your miles of road to cover. And you got your cross that you carry over those miles of road. And that's something that every person has to decide. How they cover those miles.

Super Bowl VH1 and NFL announce six-concerts in the six days leading up to Feb. 2

2's Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium will last six days and will travel to all five New York City boroughs before ending up in New Jersey the night before the championship game. But the performers for the "Super Bowl Blitz: Six Nights + Six Days" have yet to be announced, and tickets to the concerts won't go on sale, VH1 and the National Football League announced yesterday. Organizers are promising that "some of music's biggest names" will perform in the six days leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII Feb. 2 in East Rutherford. Performances will be held in Queens, Jan. 27; the Bronx, Jan. 28; Brooklyn, Jan 29; Manhattan, Jan. 30; and Staten Island, Jan. 31; before culminating in a final pre-game show Feb. 1 in New Jersey.

11 of Our Favorite Martini Ranch Concerts

she_wants_revenge_martini_ranch.jpeg Along with local music fanatics and clubgoers, the scribes of New Times headed to the Stetson Drive spot to catch some of these memorable shows over the years. In honor of Martini Ranch's closing, we've reached into our archives and assembled a rundown of some of the gigs our staff has chronicled in recent years. And while this is by no means a definitive list of the venue's best shows (and is admittedly only a tiny sample of its lengthy concert history), it provides a snapshot of the sort of tunes that were on tap at the Ranch. Warner Bros. Adam 12 Bravin and Justin Warfield of She Wants Revenge. She Wants Revenge Four hours before showtime, and Justin Warfield, the lead singer of the neo-New Wave band She Wants Revenge, has his hands all over some chick's panties. Okay, several chicks' panties, to be precise. Apparently, this is what some Rock Gawds do in their spare time. Um, you know, prep merchandise.

Before they finish, Madison Square Garden plans a 100 million dollar investment for renovation and purchase of the Forum. They hope the Eagles Forum shows only represent the first chapter on a very long new history for the former Great Western Forum. So far in addition to the 6 Eagles Forum shows LA music fans can also buy Justin Timberlake concert tickets and Imagine Dragon seats for their performances in Inglewood at the new Forum. The Eagles and Madison Square Garden come to this announcement as much more friends than strangers. In November 2013 the Eagles Madison Square Garden concert events in New York City include three tour dates that ranked as some of the hottest tickets on the resale market when they released. Elton John Madison Square Garden tickets just went on sale for the public to buy recentl as well with four Phish tour dates to wrap up the year at MSG. The Eagles tour 2013, known as the History Of The Eagles Tour, got underway in early July and continues through late January 2014 with these new LA Eagles concerts. Along the way, The Eagles play tour dates all over the United States and Canada. Band members participating in the History Of The Eagles Tour 2013 include Glenn Frey on vocals, guitars, keyboards, harmonica; Don Henley on vocals, drums, percussion, guitar; Joe Walsh on guitars, vocals, keyboards and Timothy B. Schmit on bass, vocals, acoustic guitar. With many calling this a final tour or farewell tour, fans drained the box office of tickets in many locations leaving sold out shows. For an idea of what songs you might hear on the concert, check out the Eagles Concert Set List from recent shows so far. Note that the band announced they will play some songs they never played live before at the Eagles Forum concerts in Los Angeles. If Los Angeles looks like too far a drive, get some plane tickets and a LAX hotel to make a weekend of it. While the time for some of the earlier Eagles concerts quickly approaches, fans still have time to buy tickets. Many of these Eagles tickets may be purchased with an E-Ticket option, meaning a paper ticket for the show may be printed right from the computer of the purchaser immediately after the easy online sales transaction. The printed tickets and computer systems at the arenas, like the Eagles Chicago area show at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL or American Airline Arena for the Dallas Eagles concert , make using the tickets printed at home as easy as standard tickets from the box office.
