D'Angelo / Elvis Costello + Princess / Chris Rock & more @ Carnegie Hall
Amidst a snowy midtown backdrop, Carnegie Hall generated a little heat when the Michael Dorf-produced Prince Tribute opened last night (3/7). Stacked with performers giving props to the man in purple and paisley, the lineup featured some of the same names from the previous evening's "rehearsal" at City Winery, as well as surprise appearances from names like Chris Rock and more. Backed by The Roots with guitarist Wendy Melvion (of Prince's backing band The Revolution), D'Angelo show-closing numbers "It's Gonna Be a Beautiful Night" / "1999" were the clear highlights of the evening, with performances from Bilal (doing "Sister" and channeling Keith Sweat circa 1990s), Bettye LaVette ("Kiss"), Sandra Bernhard ('Little Red Corvette") and Fdeluxe ("High Fashion/Mutiny") also causing impromptu aisle dances. Fun night, and it was great to see people up and out of their seats, wilding out in a buttoned-up place like Carnegie Hall.
More pics from last night including the setlist, The Waterboys, The Roots, Eric Leeds, Diane Birch, the Cardigans' Nina Perrson, DeVotchka, Bhi Bhiman, Kat Edmonson, Blind Boys of Alabama, Citizen Cope & Alice Smith, Talib Kweli, Princess (Gretchen Lieberum & Maya Rudolph) and all iterations there within, are below.
As mentioned, City Winery founder Michael Dorf is presenting a tribute to Prince at Carnegie Hall on March 7, his next in a long line of tribute shows he's done at the historic Manhattan venue. Since we last spoke, the lineup of great musicians that will be performing at the show has been expanded. It features Elvis Costello, The Waterboys, Talib Kweli, Booker T, DeVotchka, Bettye Lavette, Sandra Bernhard, Bilal, Blind Boys of Alabama, Bhi Bhiman, Amos Lee, Citizen Cope & Alice Smith, Maya Rudolph's Prince tribute group with Gretchen Lieberum, Princess, house band The Roots, and perhaps most excitingly, R&B singer D'Angelo (who we're still waiting on that new album from). Tickets are still available and proceeds will benefit underprivileged youth.
Meanwhile, Prince recently posted a lyric video for a new song, "Screwdriver," to his website and revealed another new track, "Chapter & Verse," which you can stream below. You can buy "Screwdriver" and a remix of that song, AND another new song that came out today called "Breakfast Can Wait" at a mysterious website called 3rd Eye Girl. According to Questlove, "#BreakfastCanWait is WOW." Check it out.
In other related news, Elvis Costello and The Roots, who are both on the lineup for the Prince tribute, are releasing a collaborative album this year according to an interview that Questlove did with Billboard. Questlove says of the album, "We had 13 or 14 songs, but then we said, 'Ooh! Wait a minute! Let's replace four of these songs with four better songs! And now we have the tightest 12-14 song collection out of about 20 songs that we made." No release date, title, or any other info has been revealed yet, but Questlove assures us, "I can just say that it is brilliant."
Elvis Costello also plays a cancer benefit with The Who at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden on February 28.

Beastie Boys @ 9:30 Club, Washington DC, January 19, 2009 (Peter Hutchins)
"What to say. it was an amazing week for citizens of the world. A tremendous moment in time and in history. It's been said so much already, but it is all true. Finally, for at least a moment, the premise and the promise of what America is: equal opportunity for all, stops being hypothetical and becomes reality. A wake up call to the world at large that America is once again a land of potential and possibility, not privilege and greed. So many words and images have been put out there, so I will leave y'all with these few scattered images from our swing state travels:Beastie Boys recently announced that "It's true - we're reissuing a digitally remastered version of Paul's Boutique to celebrate the album's 20th anniversary." Amazon adds: "digitally re-mastered for the 1st time, overseen personally by the band to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the release. The original vinyl artwork has been faithfully restored in this 8 panel eco-friendly limited edition CD with fold-out poster."
This is and was a campaign by the people for the people. It really was inspiring seeing the many who sacrificed so much of their time, energy, and recourses for the Obama campaign. We are talking all types of people, from all types of places. In many cases traveling hundreds of miles to be of service in a state other then their own.Many students, yes, but also plenty of Bea Arthur types, regular working peeps, you name it. This was not about big money or infrastructure. I will always remember the rickety walk up field office in Milwaukee. Cots set up for people working long shifts. An impromptu day care. These are the people who did the work. On election day itself Yauch and I were in Denver, aka the big D for big E. We had the good fortune of watching the concession and acceptance speeches in a big ball room filled with peeps from the Colorado Obama campaign. I will always remember the beaming radiant smile on the face of a seventy something year old african american women following Obama's acceptance speech. I can only imagine what that moment meant to her. Then there was the dancing and singing in the streets afterwords. I can't remember ever seeing something like that in my lifetime. Maybe in europe after the world cup. In hind sight, the mood that night was more like people celebrating the end of a dictatorship then a democratic election."

Beastie Boys played the "Hey, America Feels Kinda' Cool Again, Inaugural Gala" last night at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC with Sheryl Crow, Citizen Cope, and Justin Jones. Proceeds from the show went to Rock The Vote.
Beastie Boys are ALSO working on and/or finished with new material for a new album release in 2009. They (don't actually) talk about it in the video below...
Sin-e's Shane Doyle (CRED - NY TIMES)
Sin-e is now closed.
"I look at this block, and I know it's over," Mr. Doyle, 55, said in an interview in his club on Attorney Street near Stanton. Once an industrial stretch of liquor warehouses and auto-repair shops, that block is now within spitting distance of several million-dollar apartment complexes. When those buildings' residents started calling to complain of noise and crowds, he knew. "Then the obvious thing is, O.K., let me go somewhere else," he said. "But I can't find somewhere else. And even if I could the lifespan would be too short."Thanks to Shane and everyone at Sin-e for everything. Working with them, even for a little, was a great experience. Please post your own memories of Sin-e in the comments.
Instead, though he says he hasn't had a drink in decades, he is joining with partners to open a wine store in Queens, a borough he has visited mostly for its airports. [NY Times]

An Idolator reader thinks they saw Citizen Cope playing on the F Train with a crazy subway performer who I'm pretty sure is the guy I always think Devendra Banhart needs to discover and make famous. And speaking of the F Train, here's two reasons to use it this week:
"With the new album being released on September 12th, Cope will be hitting the road with his band. These shows are on presale right now through Cope's fan ticketing site. You will need the password 'cope' (case sensitive)." Dates below....
"7 World Trade Center, a gleaming 52-floor tower adjacent to where the Twin Towers stood until Sept. 11, 2001, officially opens on May 23. So far, Silverstein only has commitments for less than 25 percent of the new space." [Reuters]
The opening ceremony is at 11:30. At noon there's a free concert and the lineup is pretty impressive: Brazilian Girls, Citizen Cope, Ollabelle, Pharaoh's Daughter, Lou Reed, Ronan Tynan, Suzanne Vega, and Bill Ware Vibes. Flyer below.....
