Lower Dens @ MHOW 6/11/2014
Lower Dens

Lower Dens played Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (6/11), a show that was part of the Baltimore band's current tour as well as the 2015 Northside Festival. The band are beginning to come out of their shell a bit as Jana Hunter puts down her guitar for most songs, allowing her to become more of a frontperson. Their set leaned heavy on this year's terrific Escape from Evil and they finished things up with a brooding, low-and-slow take on Hall & Oates' "Maneater." A video of them doing that cover last month in London is below.

Opening at MHOW were Brooklyn's TEEN. Lower Dens will be back in NYC in August for a MoMA Nights show. More pictures from MHOW, and the "Maneater" video, below...

Hall & Haulin

Red Hook, Brooklyn's Early Bird Foods & Co. is being sued by veteran pop duo Hall & Oates over the company's "Haulin' Oats" granola blend, claiming copyright infringement, as noted by Page Six. "The name and mark Haulin' Oats is an obvious play upon Plaintiff's well-known Hall & Oates mark, and was selected by defendant in an effort to trade off of the fame and notoriety associated with the artist's and plaintiff's well-known marks," the suit states. It also notes that this is not the first time someone has tried to "make a connection between the artists' names and oats-related products." So you may want to think twice if you were considering launching a breakfast cereal called "Bon-Os" or other punny names.

"Haulin' Oats," if you're wondering, is a "back to basics" blend of oats and maple syrup as runs $27 for a three-pack.

BV contributor Ryan Barkan - inspired by the lawsuit by Hall & Oates vs Eary Bird Foods & Co - curated a playlist of songs from their catalog. A soundtrack of lyrics and messages that may - or may not - possibly echo the band's sentiments against alleged infringement. Listen below!

As mentioned, this year's Rock and Roll of Fame induction ceremony happens in NYC on April 10 at Barclays Center with Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt all being inducted. Since we last spoke, ticket info has been announced, and if you'd like to go, you can get tickets on Saturday, March 1 at 10 AM. There's also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member presale starting Friday (2/21) at 10 AM and AmEx/VIP package presales starting Monday (2/24) at 9 AM.

Meanwhile, Paul Stanley of Kiss doesn't care much about being inducted. He slammed the Rock Hall in a recent interview with Classic Rock Magazine:

Did you feel honoured at being inducted in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame?

No, it was done begrudgingly and because it had become absolutely ludicrous that they were choosing to ignore us. At the end of the day most people don't realise that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was a privately created establishment and that it has a self-appointed board. It's a perfect case of perception becoming reality. People heard 'Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame' and gave it credibility. So whether it deserves the title has to be weighed against who it inducts.

Read more of his feelings on it at Classic Rock Magazine.

Courtney Love also discussed the ceremony in a recent interview with Access Hollywood. She brought up her ongoing feud with Dave Grohl, saying "We're going to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and I think we're all sitting at the same table." She said she would say hi to Grohl, but that it'd be awkward. You can watch the video of that interview below.

The Rock and Hall of Fame 2014 nominees were announced this past October, and now the inductees have been announced. Rolling Stone reports that Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt will all now be rock hall of famers. Additionally, The E Street Band will be presented with the Award for Musical Excellence, and Brian Epstein (Beatles manager) and Andrew Loog Oldham (original Rolling Stones manager) will both receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers.

The induction ceremony takes place in Brooklyn on April 10 at Barclays Center, yet another high profile event happening at the new arena which also hosted the MTV Video Music Awards this year and which just announced a big show with Red Hot Chili Peppers. Tickets will be available in January, and it will air on HBO in May.

Nirvana's MTV Unplugged performance celebrated its 20th anniversary over the weekend. Watch that in full below...

The Replacements at Riot Fest Chicago in September (more by Cory Dewald)

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2014 nominees (via Rolling Stone), and the list includes Nirvana who are finally eligible (your first single or album had to come out 25 years ago, and their "Love Buzz" cover came out as a single in '88), plus The Replacements (!), Peter Gabriel, The Zombies, Link Wray, Hall and Oates, Yes, Linda Ronstadt, and Cat Stevens, in addition to artists who have been previously nominated, N.W.A, LL Cool J, Chic, The Meters, Kiss, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Deep Purple.

From now until December 10, you can vote for nominees on Rolling Stone, and the winners will be inducted at the ceremony in NYC this April.

Nirvana are also celebrating the 20th anniversary of In Utero this year and The Replacements are in the midst of a reunion.

Willie Nelson / MSMR in the SoundWave Tent / the crowd
Outside Lands 2013 8/9 - 8/11
Outside Lands 2013 8/9 - 8/11
Outside Lands 2013 8/9 - 8/11

The redheaded stranger turned 80 this year and he's no worse for wear. Like the whiskey he often sings about (he opened with 1973's "Whiskey River") Willie Nelson only seems to get better with age -- his voice deeper, his words wiser -- even if he's increasingly aware of his creeping mortality. That the man closed his triumphant set with "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" seemed a little morbid if not too on the nose, but that combination of libertarian spunk and unblinking truthfulness is what makes Nelson a living classic. Which must be the reason John "Uncle Jesse" Stamos felt compelled to slip onstage and play bongos in Willie's Family band for the second half of the gig (he did fine, now let's move on). "Still Is Still Moving to Me" was another latter-day highlight, though the Outside Lands audience was most thrilled to hear old soulful numbers like "Georgia on My Mind" and "Night Life," and outlaw tales like "Beer for My Horses" and "Me and Paul." - [SPIN]
The 2013 Outside Lands Music Festival came to a close back on Sunday (8/11) with performances from country music legend Willie Nelson, Vampire Weekend, Hall & Oates, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foals, Fishbone, and more. Pictures from Sunday's fun are in this post.

Much like we did at Lollapalooza and Firefly, BrooklynVegan commanded the SoundWave Tent for two hours each day with hosts Dave Hill and Christen Thomas. Sunday we had live performances with Dawes and MSMR and interviews with King Tuff and Camper Van Beethoven. Pics from that are HERE and in this post as well.

Pictures from Outside Lands Day 1 are HERE and Day 2 are HERE. More from Day 3 below...

John Oates & The Bird & The Bee & the baby @ the El Rey Friday night

The Bird and the Bee

The Bird and the Bee, a jazzy [L.A.] synth-pop duo, has a fantastic single (with an unprintable title) ["Fucking Boyfriend"] imploring a hesitant beau to be a real boyfriend already. It's a sassy chastening of noncommittal dudes. But when vocalist Inara George sings it while very clearly pregnant, as she did at the sold-out El Rey Theatre on Friday, the tune has an even blacker sense of humor.

"This song has more meaning when I'm like this," George said, pointing to her stomach to room-wide chuckling. Her husband, the director Jake Kasdan, may have protested that he made it official a long time ago. But it was one of many arched-eyebrow moments in a set of smart, fluffy pop made by two talents not taking themselves at all too seriously.

The pair's El Rey set was heavy on Hall & Oates numbers, and though indie rock has long since resuscitated that band's reputation as secret songwriting savants, George and Kurstin revealed them as crack arrangers as well. Kurstin's an effortlessly gifted keyboardist, and alongside a sprawling backing band (featuring opener Juliette Commagere, very able with guitar and vocal duties), the group dug deep into hits such as "Kiss on My List" in ways that snide hipster peers couldn't replicate. [LA Times]

The Bird and the Bee played L.A.'s The El Rey Friday (3/5), where John Oates made a surprise appearance during their Hall & Oates-heavy set, which is fitting considering that the duo's new record is a Hall & Oates tribute album. Interpreting The Masters Volume 1: A Tribute To Daryl Hall And John Oates comes out March 23rd on Blue Note. The album has eight covers and one Bird and the Bee original. Their version of "I Can't Go For That" is streaming exclusively below. That track, album tracklist and more pictures from the LA show, below...
