Lemmy & Dave Grohl

As previously discussed, this weekend is the Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama (May 20-22, 2011). As we wrote, "Hang Out Music Fest is heavy on the jam bands, but will also feature appearances from Paul Simon, The Black Keys, The Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, Foo Fighters, Motorhead, Cee Lo, Girl Talk, Minus The Bear, El Mariachi Bronx and many more over its three days." If you can't be there, iClips will be streaming performances online all weekend.

Speaking of Paul Simon, his tour just got bigger with the addition of another NYC show.

Speaking of My Morning Jacket and streaming, they'll be streaming a live show on May 31st directed by Todd Haynes.

Speaking of Foo Fighters, Motorhead and El Mariachi Bronx, BBG writes, "there's something wrong with the world when Motorhead is hitting the road supporting Foo Fighters, but nevertheless they're doing that right now with Biffy Clyro. Those dates include a showing at the Hangout Festival and conclude when Foo Fighters hit Sasquatch on May 27th."

Foo Fighters are also planning a trip to the Northeast, and have announed more dates that include one in the NYC-area at Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ on 9/26. Tickets go on sale 5/20 at 10AM and support at the NJ date, as with all dates on that leg, will come from Rise Against (who just played T5 twice two weeks ago with Bad Religion) and Mariachi el Bronx (who recently played Highline Ballroom, are also playing Hangout, and are playing a boat as the Bronx).

So NYC first gets shafted by not have a proper city gig, then it gets Rise Against instead of Motorhead? Messed up.

So Motorhead is opening for by-the-numbers, cookie-cutter Dave corporate-rock Grohl?

Sounds about right.

dave grohl should just drop the goofy attitude where he hams it up every chance he gets and focus on writing good music again

nothing will top the halloween of 2002 supper club show where the foos were dressed up as the hives

WTF, 2:14? Motorhead is not corporate rock, asshole.

2:41 - it helps to sound the words out first, then read them aloud, next ponder the meaning of each word in the context presented and finally provide your response. You're welcome

2:41, maybe you should re-read 2:14. Dave Grohl is the corporate rock kiss-ass. The comment is mocking the absurdity of this pairing.

looks like the new hot gay couple

Posted by Anonymous | May 19, 2011 3:09 PM

whats absurd about 2 friends playing a show together. perhaps this will educate the foo fighters fans to the might of MOTORHEAD. i dont care if he is a corporate kiss ass or not anyone who gets the word out about LEMMY and MOTORHEAD is ok in my book.

3:23 Touche. Agreed. That doesn't mean we can't lament the fact that Motorhead most likely won't have a full set.

Posted by BBG | May 19, 2011 3:34 PM

2 friends? try, 2 manufactured, corporate marketed friends

2:33, I remember that & it was awesome. Free ticket with album purchase, as well. RIP Sam Goody

What a great show. Lenny is always exciting to see, still going after all these years. And Grohl is a great writer with some great hooks.

Yeah, we get it Dave. Everyone likes you and knows who you are. Even all those cool bands like Killing Joke and Motorhead. Enough already.
