Song One

Set against "the backdrop of Brooklyn's vibrant modern-folk music scene" comes wistful indie romance, Song One, which stars Anne Hathaway and real life UK indie folk singer Johnny Flynn. (Weirdly, Zach Braff is not involved.) Here's the full synopsis:

After Franny's musician brother Henry (Ben Rosenfield, Boardwalk Empire) is injured and hospitalized in a coma following a car accident, Franny returns home after a long estrangement and begins to use his notebook as a guide to how his life has evolved in her absence. Franny seeks out the musicians and artists Henry loved, in the course of her journey meeting James Forester (Johnny Flynn), his musical idol, whose success and fame belie a shy and private man. As a strong romantic connection develops between Franny and James, the question becomes if love can bloom even under the most adverse circumstances.
The songs in the film were written by Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice, and features cameos by the likes of Sharon Van Etten, The Felice Brothers, and Dan Deacon. Bowery Ballroom, Pete's Candy Store and other venues make cameos too. The film, written and directed by Brooklynite Kate Barker-Froyland (and produced by Jonathan Demme), is out January 23.

You can watch the trailer below.

Jenny Lewis / The Replacements / Spoon @ ACL Fest 10/5/2014

ACL Festival Day 3 - 10/5/2014

"Thank you for coming over to our nook when the Replacements were playing," Spoon frontman Britt Daniel said. "We were trying to figure out who to yell at about that"...

...swapping between a classy mustard-colored Telecaster and an acoustic guitar, Daniel seemed to have a blast on stage, smiling as he nodded his head along to the layers of synths and keys of "Inside Out" -- the prettiest and least Spoon-sounding Spoon song -- and poking fun at the band's previous work. "Not bad for a song from 'Transference," he said, after "Who Makes Your Money." [Austin 360]

The 2014 ACL Festival wrapped up its first of two weekends on Sunday (10/5) with sets from The Replacements and Spoon (playing at the same time which made for tough audience choices), as well as Jenny Lewis, The Gaslight Anthem, Chromeo, Phantogram, Jhene Aiko and many more. Pictures from those and other ACL Day 3 performers are in this post.

ACL does it again with the same lineups this weekend (Oct 10 - 12). Weekend 1 day 1 pics are here and day 2 pics are here. More Weekend 1 day 3 pics below...

Waxahatchee at Sasquatch 2014 (more by Chris & Rae Graham)
Waxahatchee

As previously discussed, Katie Crutchfield is planning a new Waxahatchee album, and she'll soon be going on a solo tour previewing songs from it which hits NYC on November 10 at Le Poisson Rouge. Since we last spoke, it's been announced that support at that show comes from two Cerulean Salt contributors, Swearin's Allison Crutchfield (Katie's twin sister and former PS Eliot/Bad Banana bandmate, who released an excellent solo EP this year) and Radiator Hospital (the project of former Waxahatchee bassist Sam Cook-Parrott, who released an excellent album this year that Katie sings on). Tickets for that show are on sale now. RadHos and Allison also open for Waxahatchee (separately) at her two Philly shows.

Right after the NYC show, Waxahatchee will open a few dates for one of her biggest influences, Jenny Lewis (Katie has a Rilo Kiley tattoo), on her tour. She won't be at her NYC or Long Island date, but she does open for her in Philly. Updated Waxahatchee dates are listed below.

Radiator Hospital and Allison Crutchfield (who also appear on each others' new releases) are also touring together before those Waxahatchee shows. That tour includes a previously discussed NYC show on October 19 at Silent Barn with Slutever, Girlpool and Libbie 2000. Updated list of their dates below as well.

2014 Outside Lands Festival Day 3

Outside Lands in it's seventh installment has completed it's transformation from a traditional rock and roll festival to a Coachella of Northern California. What used to drive Outside Lands were bands like Pearl Jam, Muse, Furthur, and Radiohead. Today, the headliners can be some of the quietest parts of the night. It's the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) that rules almost all festivals nationwide. Trying to get anywhere even close to Flume, Tiesto or Duck Sauce was virtually impossible. Luckily, the stage presence of those shows are next to nothing (besides some creepy visuals of satan that Boys Noize provided) so you can be standing anywhere with your friends and have a great time. This should be no surprise to anyone who's attended a festival in the past few years. The crowds are demanding dance music and I'm often being told that rock shows are just plain "boring". Whether that has to do with the increased intoxication at these festivals or just a shift in the popularity of EDM is for you to decide.

The beauty of the music festival lies in it's diversity in music. It will always be heavily weighed on what's trending, but you'll never go to a major music festival without classic hip hop, vintage rock and roll, EDM, and sometimes a little country. What has really started to impress me is the increasing number of female led rock groups." [Huffington Post]

Outside Lands closed things out with a bang on Sunday as Danielle Haim played drums with The Killers, Flaming Lips covered the Beatles, Patrick Stewart got drunk, and a whole bunch of other sets happened. Those other day 3 sets included Spoon, Cut Copy, Lykke Li, Jenny Lewis and plenty more. Unfortunately, CHVRCHES were a no-show due to border-crossing issues. Pictures of day 3's fun are in this post. Pics from day 1 are here and pics of day 2 are here.

Like we did at Lollapalooza and on OSL DAY ONE (pics) and OSL DAY TWO (pics), we set up in the Toyota Soundwave tent on the festival grounds. On Sunday the activities there included a live interview with Wayne Coyne and 2nd sets from Hiss Golden Messenger, The Bots and Courtney Barnett. Those pictures are in this post too and continue below.

In related news, Spoon just announced openers for their next NYC show, and we're giving away tickets. You can also read about Spoon's last NYC show, a secret surprise one, HERE.

Kim Gordon on 'Girls'
Kim Girls

HBO series Girls was nominated for two Golden Globes but didn't win either on last night's awards ceremony. (The show lost to Brooklyn Nine Nine and Lena Dunham lost to Amy Poehler [who also co hosted the GGs].) At the same time elsewhere on the television dial, Girls made its Season 3 premiere with two back-to-back episodes. We knew this was coming but didn't know when -- the first episode featured Sonic Youth / Body/Head's Kim Gordon as Mindy, a member of Jessa's (Jemima Kirke) support group at rehab. The two don't get along. This is actually the third show with "Girl" in the title Gordon has acted in (the others being Gossip and Gilmore) but this is by far the meatiest part she's played. HBO has the whole premiere episode up on its YouTube channel to watch for free.

Meanwhile, a second soundtrack from the, titled Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do, will be released February 11 and features music by Vampire Weekend, Lily Allen, Beck, Cat Power, Jake Bugg, Aimee Mann and more. One of the tracks exlusive to the soundtrack is Jenny Lewis' "Completely Not Me" which features in the second episode's closing credits, is apparently a collaboration with Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij. You can listen to that over at Entertainment Weekly. Tracklist for the soundtrack is below.

In related news, while not the song from the Girls soundtrack, Lily Allen has released a new track, "Air Balloon," from her forthcoming new album and that can be streamed below.

Neil Young & friends during Lou Reed tribute
Neil

The annual Bridge School Benefit Concert went down over the weekend (10/26 & 10/27) with sets from Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Arcade Fire, Tom Waits, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits and more. On the first day, Neil Young joined Arcade Fire (like he did at the 2011 benefit), this time for a new song that Win said was written in a dream and inspired by Neil, and hence titled, "I Dreamed A Neil Young Song." Neil also joined MMJ for "Harvest Moon." You can check out an 8-hour full-set video of day 1 below (MMJ comes on around 4:50, Arcade Fire around 5:40, QOTSA around 6:40, and CSNY around 7:40).

On the second day, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, MMJ, Jenny Lewis and others performed The Velvet Underground's "Oh! Sweet Nuthin" as a tribute to Lou Reed (who passed away earlier in the day). Tom Waits also performed his first concert in five years, and was joined by Primus' Les Claypool on upright bass. His set, along with the Lou Reed tribute, can be watched below.

The 2013 Bridge School Benefit concerts happen this weekend (October 26 & 27) at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. Now in it's 27th year, the benefit concerts raise money for The Bridge School, a "non-profit, innovative organization educating children with severe speech and physical impairments through the use of augmentative and alternative communication systems and assistive technology" that was founded, in part, by Pegi Young (wife of Neil Young).

This year's concerts, as mentioned, feature performances by CSNY, Queens of the Stone Age, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, fun, Heart, Jenny Lewis and, on Saturday (10/26) only, Arcade Fire, Jack Johnson and Tom Waits. All performances are acoustic.
