Jefferson Airplane back in the day
Jefferson Starship are currently on their Jefferson Airplane tour, playing full Airplane sets for the band's 50th anniversary (it hit NYC earlier this week, anyone go?). Now another Airplane spinoff, Hot Tuna (aka Jorma Kaukonen & Jack Casady), are doing something for the anniversary too. They'll play a full Airplane set at Virginia's Lockn' Festival, which happens at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington from September 10-13. They also play an acoustic Hot Tuna set at the fest, and there will be sets from Phil Lesh & Friends, Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters, Little Feat, Fishbone, Anders Osborne, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Doobie Brothers, Umphrey's McGee, Widespread Panic and more. Tickets are on sale.
Tuna also added a NYC-area show to their tour, happening July 18 at The Capitol Theatre. It's a great double bill, with fellow San Francisco scene band New Riders of the Purple Sage. Tickets go on sale Friday (3/27) at noon. All Hot Tuna dates are listed below.
David Nelson of the New Riders will also be playing as a member of Phil Lesh & Friends at the latter two shows of his four-show fall run at the Capitol Theatre. Those shows happen 10/30, 10/31, 11/6 and 11/7. The full lineups are Stanley Jordan, John Kadlecik, Jason Crosby, and Tony Leone for the October shows; and David Nelson, Barry Sless, Scott Law, Jason Crosby, and John Molo in November.
As you may know, Phil Lesh is taking part in the Grateful Dead 50th anniversary shows in Chicago this July with fellow surviving members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. According to Jambase, there's a rumor that two California shows will be added, set to take place June 27 and 28 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. Stay tuned to see if that rumor proves to be true!

The day when a bill Jeff Mangum on it selling out instantly might be gone, but take note that tickets just went on sale for the 11/15 "People's Bailout, a variety show and telethon to benefit the 99%". The updated lineup is Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Max Silvestri, Hari Kondabolu, David Rees, The Yes Men, John Cameron Mitchell, Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Climbing Poetree, the Invisible Army of Defaulters, members of Healthcare for the 99%, Occupy Faith, "and many more."
Note: as strange as it may seem now, the LPR show is not a hurricane-related benefit (though Occupy Wall Street is on the case). The Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk & Anders Osborne show at Highline Ballroom on 11/5 is one though. Amy Helm, Eric Krasno (Soulive/Lettuce), Luther Dickinson (N. Miss Allstars), Bela Fleck and Questlove and more are on the bill so far. Tickets are on sale.
Questlove's DJ set at Brooklyn Bowl last night was also a benefit for the Red Cross. Bear in Heaven and Small Black are DJing a Sandy benefit at Glasslands tonight (11/2).
The Gulf Restoration Network celebrates four years as the official non-profit partner of the Voodoo Experience, one of New Orleans best music festivals. We constructed demonstration barrier islands, marshes and cypress swamps to educate music worshippers about the importance of our natural storm defenses, the threat of the BP drilling disaster, and the need for a national commitment to the recovery and restoration of the Gulf. We also held a press conference with featured musicians speaking out for the Gulf, and welcomed the Acting Outlaws to NOLA. The Acting Outlaws are Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff, actresses who share a line on their resumes (lead roles in Battlestar Galactica), a love of motorcycles, and a belief that everyone can do something to make the world better. The two rode BMW motorcycles cross country for Gulf awareness, supporting the Gulf Future campaign, and the work of GRN and the Gulf Coast Fund.Pictures of the Gulf Restoration Network's site at the festival, and the rest of our pictures from the New Orleans music fest (the rest here are HERE, HERE and HERE), below...
