Hieroglyphics

It's been a killer year for Del the Funky Homosapien. He already played "Clint Eastwood" with Damon Albarn at Bonnaroo, and Deltron 3030 have an upcoming tour that hits NYC for a free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park on 7/19 and NJ the next day (tix). Now, another of Del's groups, the great Hieroglyphics, will be going on a short Northeast tour this August following Deltron's run.

For this tour the group will include Del along with A-Plus, Casual, Domino, Opio, Pep Love, Phesto, Tajal and DJ Toure. It kicks off in Boston and hits NYC a day later on August 21 at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets for that show are on fan club presale now (anyone know the password?) and the general on-sale begins Friday (6/27) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Hieroglyphics' last album was 2013's The Kitchen which was their first since 2003's Full Circle. You can stream The Kitchen over at SPIN. Watch the video for "You Never Knew" off their classic debut, 3rd Eye Vision, with the list of tour dates, below...

Jack White

Bonnaroo went down over this past weekend with sets from Ice Cube, Kanye West, Sam Smith and so much more.

As always, legacy acts enjoyed a good showing at the festival. Elton John played the entire first side of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, gave a tribute to the late Casey Kasem, and brought out Ben Folds for a guest spot. Ben had also appeared a day earlier with The Flaming Lips during their set to cover Usher's "Love In This Club" (video below), a set which included Wayne Coyne playfully throwing some shade at Kanye's set from earlier in the festival, asking the crowd "Where's the press?"

Lionel Richie played a set that included everything from his time in the Commodores ("Brick House") to "All Night Long" to his Diana Ross collaboration "Endless Love." More legends graced the Bonnaroo stages when Chaka Khan made a surprise appearance during the Derek Trucks-led SuperJam on Friday and covered Led Zeppelin and Stevie Wonder. Also in that jam were blues legend Taj Mahal, Anthony Hamilton and once again, Ben Folds. Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones himself appeared at the festival to sit in with bluesman Seasick Steve, which he has done before with Jack White.

Jack White, who we also just caught at Governors Ball, didn't play with John Paul Jones this time, but he did play his own set which included a cover of Zeppelin's "The Lemon Song." It also included calling Rolling Stone a "tabloid," ranting about Johnny Depp and Albert Einstein (watch out Kanye!), and otherwise him rocking out to cuts from his solo albums, Raconteurs, White Stripes, The Dead Weather, and a cover of Dick Dale's "Misirlou." Video and setlist from Jack's set, below.

Skrillex led a SuperJam too which involved Janelle MonĂ¡e, A$AP Ferg, Warpaint, Doors guitarist Robby Krieger, Mystikal, Damian Marley, and Thundercat, among others. The set was closed by none other than Ms. Lauryn Hill, who played "Killing Me Softly" a la Fugees, Bob Marley's "Jamming" (though not with Damian) and more. More old school big guns came out during Damon Albarn's set, which was split between Gorillaz, Blur, The Good the Bad & the Queen and solo material. De La Soul joined him for "Feel Good Inc." and Del The Funkee Homosapien for "Clint Eastwood", Setlist and videos are below, and check out pictures and more from his recent Irving Plaza show.

Elsewhere, Omar Souleyman, who couldn't make it to Northside Festival experienced no travel issues and played a set on Thursday night. James Blake also played and told Billboard while he was there that his new album is halfway done and will include collaborations with Kanye West, Justin Vernon and more. Arctic Monkeys, who were covered twice during the festival (by Sam Smith and MS MR), played their own set too and to a HUGE crowd, heavy on the AM stuff but with a little bit of their other four albums mixed in. What didn't happen, unfortunately, was the set by Broad City's stars that were supposed to perform in the Comedy Theatre but canceled their set.

Of course the huge festival had tons of other highlights too. Did you go? What were yours?

Videos and a few setlists from the fest, below...

Damon Albarn @ NPR SXSW (more by Tim Griffin)

Damon Albarn played the Fader Fort at SXSW last night (3/14), where he brought out some special guests to help him perform a pair of Gorillaz tunes. Del the Funky Homosapien and Dan the Automator joined Albarn for "Clint Eastwood"--it was the first time the original collaborators teamed up to perform it--and Snoop Dogg also came out halfway through the song to spit a verse of "Drop It Like It's Hot." Albarn also invited De La Soul out to do "Feel Good Inc." Check out some video footage of "Clint Eastwood" below...

"It's not there like it used to be. I'm not mad at that. You've got lots of new movements happening, like the trap movement, and I enjoy that quite a bit. So musically, there's a lot of great stuff. So far as rhyming and stuff goes, there are a lot of kids out there who are really dope, and that encourages me to get doper still. Like, the whole Odd Future camp, and what they're doing over there, that's special, and then in New York you've got Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era. These are kids, but they're done. They've done their homework. And they are taking things that level further. I don't think hip-hop has to be what it used to be." [Del The Funky Homosapien]
Deltron 3030, the 'alternative hip hop supergroup' of Dan the Automator, Del the Funky Homosapien and Kid Koala, reappeared with a new album and live dates in 2013, orchestra included. Those dates included NYC shows at Brooklyn Bowl (Oct. 9) and Highline Ballroom (Oct. 14), as well as a Chicago show at House of Blues (Oct 19). The latter is pictured in this post.

On 10/15 Deltron 30/30 appeared on Letterman joined by a 16-piece orchestra and 4-piece band onstage, including special guest, producer Just Blaze on keyboards. Check out the video from that, and more pictures and tour dates (Fun Fun Fun Fest included), below...

Gravy Train!!!!
Gravy Train!!!!

When the very good DJ Prince Paul came on, crowds gathered in front of the stage. His first number was the usual tribute to Michael Jackson, and then Prince, De La Soul, Brand Nubian, et al. followed. In addition to being a DJ, the Queens native Prince Paul is a crimefighter, an international man of mystery, and a well-known producer of lots of musicians you know well. He got the crowd moving and shaking; clearly, he's so good at this you feel he could do it in his sleep. Prince Paul is pretty funny, too.

After Prince Paul left the stage, there were some technical glitches, but finally onstage came Buku One, or Bukue One - spelling of hip-hop performers is about as standard as colonial American English; we've seen Del the Funky Homosapien also as Del tha Funkee Homosapien - who, like Del, is from the Bay Area. He's worth catching up with if you're not familiar with him; his DJing exudes intelligence and wit...

...Del joined Bukue onstage, and he was great throughout his set...."How many of you think the music industry is fucked up and full of shit?" Del asked the crowd. "Are you tired of buying an album that has only three good songs?" Yeah, we are. Who's got the cure? The doctor in the house, Dr. Bombay, of course.

This past Sunday at the Williamsburg Waterfront (8/16) was not only the 2009 Pool Party with the most hip hop, but also the Pool Party with the most confusing band name spellings (Del tha? Del the? Funkee? Funky? Kenan? Keenan? !? !!? !!!? !!!!? DD/MM/YYYY?????). Sorry.

Del has two new albums. The first, from which the two MP3's above come from, is called Funk Man (The Stimulus Package) and is totally free. The second is a collaboration with Tame One that was produced by Parallel Thought and is called Parallel Uni-Verses. It drops October 13th, 2009.

Prince Paul and Kenan Bell were both also seen three days earlier at the De La Soul show at Nokia Theatre. Gravy Train!!!! pictured above was the best visual candy of the day. More pictures below...

De La DMC @ Nokia Theatre, NYC - 8/13/09 (by Tim Griffin)
De La Soul

As Del La Soul told the crowd when they took the stage at Nokia Theatre in NYC last night (8/13), their show was not going to be all music from 3 Feet High & Rising. Why would anyone think it would be? Probably because the show was billed as "20 Years High and Rising" (and everyone and their mother is playing full albums these days) (including Buckshot who opened the show, but didn't play a full album at this one either). I was more than okay with them not playing the full thing, though it would have been nice to hear a few more songs from that album. Specifically, I wished they played "The Magic Number" and "Jenifa Taught Me (Derwin's Revenge)".

I loved every second of the packed show, and the 10-piece backing band was an especially nice touch. That said, I was selfishly hoping for a few more special guests, not that there weren't any. I thought for sure that Q-Tip would show up, and the Jungle Brothers and Black Sheep, and maybe even Doom, and who knows who else. Ends up they sort of kept the guests to a minimum. Bumpy Knuckles performed a short unannounced opening set. Prince Paul was brought out for a second to say hello. Dres from Black Sheep and Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest were watching from the side of the stage and were brought forward to dance for a minute during "Buddy". And then, the big, and maybe only real special guest moment came during a cover of Run DMC's "Rock Box" which was completed with DMC himself on stage as part of the group. They covered Rakim too, but he wasn't there, maybe because he was downtown playing his own show at Highline Ballroom the same evening.

This Sunday (8/16) indie rock leaves the Williamsburg Waterfront for one week (Central Park Summerstage stole it for the day), and another big (mostly) hip hop show happens in NYC, courtesy of JellyNYC, and it's free (and/or $50). The Sunday Pool Party lineup includes Gravy Train!!!, DD/MM/YYYY, Kenan Bell (who also opened for De La Soul on Thursday), a DJ set by Prince Paul (Plug Four), and a headlining set by DEL the Funky Homosapien.

We have a full set of pictures coming from De La Soul (more tour dates HERE), and we'll have some from Sunday too. In the meantime, here's a few videos from the show...

'your tax deductible benefit ticket helps fund needed improvements to our park' - OSA

Williamsburg Waterfront (more by Bao Nguyen)
Pool Party

"The Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA) does fund raising for North Brooklyn parks and works with Jelly and the East River State Park in producing the Pool Parties on Sundays. Each week OSA makes available VIP tickets to the Pool Parties. Purchase of VIP Benefit tickets to the free concerts at the East River State Park/Williamsburg Waterfront include entrance through the VIP entrance at North 7th Street without waiting in line [P.S. you must be 21 or older to use the VIP Benefit ticket...]. Access the area next to the stage where the artist & production team hang, enjoying the waterfront view and New York City skyline with a couple hours of complimentary beer and sangria. Have fun while doing good: your tax deductible benefit ticket helps fund needed improvements to our park."
Those tickets are available for the three remaining Pool Parties this summer.
Sunday, Aug 16 - Del the Funky Homosapien & Prince Paul & Gravy Train! & DD/MM/YY & Kenan Bell (VIP tix)
Sunday, Aug 23 - Girl Talk, Max Tundra and Wiz Khalifa (VIP tix)
Sunday, Aug 30 - Grizzly Bear and Beach House (VIP tix)
$50 seems really pricey for this, but I'm not going to knock a charity (and it's tax deductible). Check out a video from OSA and a clip from the Fiery Furnaces' August 9th set below...

Dont bring these things

"The emails have been piling up and everyone's asking, "dude, what's up with the Pool Parties?" Well DUDE, so sorry to keep you waiting, but here at JELLY we've been working our asses off to bring you one of the greatest free concert series in history. The Pool Parties are going to be extremely crucial this year, "epic" or "amazing" as you people say these days. Seriously, eight weeks of FREE shows on the waterfront of Williamsburg? Does it get any better? You might be thinking "waterfront"? Yeah, in case you didn't hear the McCarren Pool's closed so get over it :) , and yeah we kept the name Pool Parties even though the East River's not at a pool, so what? We've still got DODGEBALL, basketball, DJ's, bands, burgers the works! We love you more than your parents ever could, and if you want to have fun and hang out with us this summer. [Full schedule below]. Bring your friends but please don't bring these things [pictured above]. As you can see below, underage drinking will not be tolerated. . You guys wouldn't do that though, so there's nothing to worry about. Thank you for visiting and stay tuned!!" -Jelly
The big news here is that they finally announced! As far as this year's lineup, well, we figured most of that out already. The Black Lips will also play the show with Trail of Dead, HEALTH, and Grupo Fantasma. Jemina Pearl is also on the bill of the first show on July 12th (Mission of Burma). Full lineup poster and a video below...

Bumbershoot

Bumbershoot has evolved over the years, and no one knows that better than Norm Langill, president and CEO of One Reel, the not-for-profit company that produces the event. He's been involved with Bumbershoot since its beginning in the 1970s and is the one who ultimately takes the bouquets and brickbats, the praise and complaints.

As the 2008 festival drew to a close last Monday night, he looked out a picture window in the press room at the still-bustling crowd below and said, "I see people really engaged out there. A mixed crowd."

He turned to me, smiling.

"It was smooth. It was really smooth this year. I feel comfortable enough to not even ask about attendance." [The Seattle Times]

Bumbershoot 2008 coverage comes to an end with the rest of the pictures and reports from day three below..

Wakarusa

The Flaming Lips are hitting at least 17 music festivals this summer. Of that 17, four have already happened. There was Summer Camp, Jam on the River and Sasquatch. And then there was last weekend at Wakarusa in Lawrence, Kansas (home of Williams S Burroughs from 1981-1997). Like Jam on the River, Wakarusa was heavy on the jam bands. STS9, Lotus, Galactic, Tea Leaf Green, and Keller Williams were all on the bill. So were Mates of State, Dr. Dog, Cake, Tilly and the Wall, Bettye Lavette, Old 97's, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Arrested Development, Built to Spill and many more. And like a lot of summer festivals, Wakarusa was forced to deal with rain delays and related artist cancellations. And there was camping....

People of all ages find elaborate ways to set up their campsites, entertain themselves, sleep comfortably, at least as well as you can in 85 degrees, and grill up some grub. Since it's equal parts music and camping at Wakarusa, having the right supplies improves the experience. T.J. Baker, 23, Lawrence, said sleeping comfortably is key. Hammocks are the best, he said.

"I'm envious I don't have one with me, especially for napping," he said, looking at a yellow hammock his friend was sound alseep in. Eric Blakie, 22, and Jake Via, 23, both from Buffalo, N.Y., made the 16-hour road trip for the festival, so there was no going back for that forgotten toothbrush or towel... [Lawrence Journal]

No, there was no going back.

Wakarusa

As you know by now, Flaming Lips have integrated nudity into their already-over-the-top stage show. That stayed true at Wakarusa and one of the girls even seemed to be sending NYC a message. We read you loud and clear...

Del The Funky Homosapien @ SXSW 2008 (CRED)
Del The Funky Homosapien

South by Southwest has always been known as a music festival that flourishes with indie-rock bands, singer-songwriter types, classic blues players, metal acts and even some country artists. But hip-hop? Not so much.

That's been changing thanks to SXSW music programmer Matt Sonzala, who has worked steadily to increase the profile of rap at the festival, which hosts hundreds and hundreds of acts each year. Among the 150 hip-hop performers at this year's event include Ice Cube, Bun B, The Clipse, Dizzee Rascal, 2 Live Crew, Talib Kweli, and the Cool Kids.

"Honestly I didn't know too much about this, and people would say, 'What -- you don't know what that is? ... If you don't go, you trippin'!'" said Del the Funky Homosapien, playing SXSW for the first time this year. "That's when I started realizing." [Associated Press]

Tickets are still on sale for the Del show happening Wednesday night (March 26) at Highline Ballroom in NYC. Check out a video from SXSW below....

After a cease & desist put the breaks on Amplive's Radiohead In Rainbows remix project, the online music community reasonably wondered if the tracks would ever see the light of day. Today comes an answer: they most definitely will. While the Oakland producer/DJ acknowledges that he probably should have contacted Radiohead (who were not involved in the project) to seek approval prior to making his interpretations publicly available, an agreement has been reached between all involved parties and Amplive has been granted permission to release Rainydayz Remixes for free to the general public.
