Buddy Guy bring the blues to the people, 7/11/2012
Hudson Blues Fest 2012

Nothing says the blues like the World Financial Center, in the heart of Battery Park City, with massive VIP pens of suits and their female equivalents...

You don't need me to tell you really how this gig went. What can I tell you about Buddy Guy and John Mayall? These are padres of respective kinds of the blues. This is major historical legendary territory. Who am I to wax any kind of authoritative narrative about these men and what they do? I can tell you a little bit about Quinn Sullivan - 13 years old and plays the blues guitar (and the git in general) like another Kenny Wayne or D. Trucks. We can say we saw him when...I hope. Oh I can tell you one thing about Mr. Guy, who I think is still soloing on "Hootchie Cootchie Man" as I write this the next day (I am making that up): he had to sass the crowd for not even being with it to shout "son of a gun" during this top 5 blues classic. "I played India 3 weeks ago," he said, "and they didn't fuck it up as bad as you", he told the crowd. -[Sonic Parthenon]

Buddy Guy would eventually jam with the 13-year-old prodigy to end an evening of blues at World Financial Center last night (7/11), the first of the two-night Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival. Pictures of Buddy Guy, John Mayall, and Quinn Sullivan are are in this post.

As mentioned, the free festival continues tonight (7/12) with appearances from Neko Case, Charles Bradley and the Extraordinaires and He's My Brother, She's My Sister.

More pictures of night one, below...

Bruce Springsteen & Tom Morello @ MSG (BMoreSweet)
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

U2 closed the second night of the MSG Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows on October 30th. At the first (10/29), it was Bruce Springsteen & Billy Joel (before one big group sing on Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher")...

After "Badlands" much of the drained audience began leaving and then rushed back to their seats when Billy Joel sat down at the piano and launched into "You May Be Right," "Only The Good Die Young" and "New York State Of Mind." (The pair were uniting the kindred spirits of New Jersey and Long Island, Springsteen explained.) "Higher and Higher" wrapped up the night. The official set list had the show ending at 11:36:55 (yes, they thought they had it down to the exact second), but the final notes rang out at 1:31 a.m. Six straight hours of music, and that was just the first of two nights. [Rolling Stone]
Bruce was actually there both nights (one of many possibly "filling in" for Eric Clapton, who canceled last minute on the second). Those in attendence on the 30th got to see U2, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith sing together on "Because the Night." (And U2 + Mick Jagger (another unannounced guest) + Fergie + Will.i.am sing "Gimme Shelter"...). Ray Davies, Lou Reed, and Ozzy Osbourne all performed with Metallica. Many played with Stevie Wonder. Full setlists below.

HBO will be airing four hours of highlights on Thanksgiving weekend.
(November 29th at 8PM ET).

Bruce's current tour wraps up November 22nd in Buffalo. He was at Giants Stadium earlier this fall, playing the last concerts ever there. U2 also played the venue for two nights in September, and will be back in Jersey in 2010 as part of their just-announced tour.

Set lists for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame shows are below...

Leonard Cohen

Little Leonard Cohen headlines the giant Madison Square Garden this evening (10/23). Van Morrison plays the smaller Theater on Sunday (10/25).

Van Morrison was actually scheduled to make an appearance in the bigger venue too this month, but...

The concerts celebrating the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are right around the corner on 29 and 30 October at the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. There has been a change in the guest lineup for 30 October, the evening Eric Clapton is scheduled to perform. Van Morrison is no longer on the show. Buddy Guy will now be performing. Other special guests for Friday include Ozzy Osbourne, Jeff Beck, Jerry Lee Lewis, Annie Lennox and Lenny Kravitz.
Speaking of cancellations and Lenny Kravitz, Lenny's recently cancelled show at Irving Plaza was rescheduled for October 28th.

BB King

Living legend B.B. King turned 83 in September. You wouldn't know it by his touring schedule. Catch B.B. tonight/Thursday, December 4th, at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, Friday at the club with his own name in it, Saturday in Trenton, February 21st @ the Beacon Theatre with Buddy Guy, or at any of the shows listed below...
