Band Takes Stand For LGBTQ Rights By Performing In Drag In North Carolina [Photos/Vidoes]

first_imgOn May 25th, MarchFourth is launching a Kickstarter for their fourth studio album, Magic Number, which was recorded at The Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans, LA, produced by Galactic’s Ben Ellman and featuring Stanton Moore and Trombone Shorty. Depending on your pledge, you’ll be able to pre-order the album through the program when it goes live later this month. Needless to say, this record is going to be off the charts!Catch MarchFourth later this month when they swing through Summer Camp for a late night Sunday set that promises a multi-faceted, indelible experience, as well as various guerilla parades throughout the weekend! They’ll be sure to keep it fresh all the way through! MarchFourth is a genre-breaking force of nature in the world of entertainment. Carrying nearly twenty musicians, dancers, and artisans around the country for a show that defies categorization and implores free-spirited joy-inducing, foot-stomping, booty-shaking, soul-stirring ambience sets the band apart from any other touring band. Able to catch the attention of any, the cast of characters recently used their position to an advantage of power.Following the new laws in North Carolina against the LGBTQ community, and the recent concert cancellations that some headlining acts chose to respond with, members of MarchFourth decided to respond to the situation in a different way. After a late night drunken conversation about the matter, the band unanimously decided to go forward with both their North Carolina shows, in Durham at Motorco and headlining the LEAF Festival outside of Asheville, in full drag. Over the weekend, they chose to perform in dresses, makeup, wigs, and all, both to poke fun at the state’s governor and to stand in solidarity with those who are being persecuted for who they are. While performing this way in the North Carolina towns was certainly a risky move, they were pleased to be overwhelmingly supported by their fans. Their sets, some of their best ever, included a brassy version of Prince‘s “Purple Rain” and “Hot Stepper” from their upcoming album.Purple RainHot Stepper“It was pretty surreal going on after Juan de Marcos and the Afro Cuban All Stars, them in suits and gowns,” trumpeter Paul Theodore Chandler told us about his experience at LEAF Fest. “And then it’s us getting on but with all the dudes in gowns and makeup. F***ing awesome.”Here are some stunning photos from their LEAF Festival performance, courtesy of Sandlin Gaither Photography:last_img read more

Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page Is Planning To Release New Music In 2017

first_imgWhile fellow Led Zeppelin member Robert Plant continues to create new music with his solo band, guitarist Jimmy Page has mostly been working on re-releases from the Led Zeppelin catalog in the last few years. With the recent release of Zeppelin’s The Complete BBC Sessions, it seems Page can finally turn his sights on the new.In past interviews, Jimmy Page has talked about putting a band together to record new music and tour. However, those plans were unfortunately sidetracked with work on the new release. As Page explains, he’s still very much interested in getting back out there in 2017.Speaking to Planet Rock, Page said, “It took a lot of time and I must say that I hoped by this time (September 2016) that I would be sort of playing with other musicians. I’ve said that to you before but I still hope to do that. Clearly now it’s not going to materialise until next year. That’s not that far away now!”On the other hand, Page also said that he might work on more re-releases as well. “I’m sure there will be some (restored) releases over the next few years… but it’s the sort of thing where we need to have a good old chat with the band y’know. A few band meetings to discuss the ideas. So, I hope so!”He’s also in touch with the members of his other band, The Yardbirds, about potentially producing re-releases for them as well.“I’m in touch with the members of the Yardbirds and I hope to be seeing them relatively soon and then the material I’ve got we’ll see how much of it comes out. Hopefully all of it will come out but they haven’t heard all of the things, they’ve just heard certain samples of things and they were really thrilled with what they heard, which is cool.”He continues, “It’s all stuff that was done right in the last stages of The Yardbirds, it’s more or less almost in that last year that we had together. It’s got things that were really sort of crossover… I’m just really keen to do that and do it with them… so we’re all involved, bits of memorabilia and all of that. I’m very very hopeful that it will come together. I’m confident that it will.”Let’s hope this doesn’t impede Page’s ability to create new music and get back out there. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we know more.last_img read more

Dave Matthews Debuts New Song “Here On Out” With An Orchestra At Lincoln Center [Watch]

first_imgLast night, Dave Matthews could be found among a number of talented performers at Joshua Bell’s “Seasons of Cuba” event at Lincoln Center. Bell led an ensemble that included a number of artists, with many paying respect to the Cuban culture in honor of opening the US-Cuban relations after many decades. The Chamber Orchestra Of Havana was also on hand, adding a magnificent touch to each performance.Dave Matthews was one of the final musicians to play, first joining up with Carlos Varela for a rendition of “Muros y Puertas (Mirrors and Doors).” Matthews then played his new song “Samurai Cop,” complete with the orchestra, Varela, and Alonso Orlando. After that song, Dave was left with the orchestra, where he performed a brand new song called “Here On Out.” This was the first time that “Here On Out” was played live, but the song title was actually revealed back in May of 2015, when composer David Richard Campbell (aka Beck’s father) posted an image with the name on some sheet music. The song selection makes sense, as Matthews actually had an orchestra in the studio when recording “Here On Out” at the time.You can watch the full video of “Here On Out” with the Chamber Orchestra Of Havana below, courtesy of dt41lt on YouTube.Matthews’ set concluded with a performance of “Ants Marching,” before all of the musicians returned to the stage for an encore of “Guadalajara.” By all accounts, it was a great night of music.With so many new songs in Matthews’ catalog, it seems that an announcement of a new album is imminent. We’ll be sure to keep you posted.last_img read more
