MMJ @ Beacon Theatre, 11/25/2015
My Morning Jacket
My Morning Jacket

My Morning Jacket brought their tour to NYC for four shows at the Beacon Theatre on November 24, 25, 27 & 28 with openers Woods, Strand of Oaks, Cass McCombs and Craig Finn for the respective nights. We were at the 11/25 show with Strand of Oaks and pictures of that whole night are in this post.

Obviously, MMJ broke out a ton of songs from throughout its history over the course of the four nights, playing a totally different set at each show and finding time to hit some of Jim James's solo tracks and songs from Monsters of Folk and The New Basement Tapes. As mentioned, during the 11/28 show, MMJ asked for a moment of silence and covered Eagles of Death Metal's "I Love You All The Time" as a tribute to those who died in the Paris attacks.

Strand of Oaks also have some shows coming up, including the one in Long Island at Cannon's Blackthorn on December 10 with Reigning Sound. Tickets for that show are still on sale.

Check out more pictures of the 11/25, along with footage of MMJ playing "I Love You All The Time" and setlists from all four nights.

Dean Ween
Dean Ween

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks that killed 90+ fans at an Eagles of Death Metal show, the band have donated the publishing and master use of their song "I Love You All The Time" to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. They're challenging iTunes, Spotify and other sellers to donate the proceeds to charity, and for other bands to cover the song, or offer up their own song to covered for charity. They're calling it the "The Play it Forward Initiative."

One notable musician to do so is Dean Ween. He's known Josh Homme for a long time, as Ween toured with both Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age in the '90s. Says Ween (aka Mickey Melchiondo):

When I heard about the Paris attacks I broke down and called him immediately and surprisingly he answered. Finding out that Dave Catching was alive and unharmed was one of the biggest reliefs of my life.

When Josh asked me to cover this tune, I dropped what I was doing on the most important (to me anyway) gig night of my life. I was debuting the tunes from my forthcoming Dean Ween Group album. I came to the studio with our drummer Ray Kubian (who is a great singer as well) and I had a concept - one sample of handclaps and 8 tracks of grunting in the rhythm of the song and scat singing. I laid down a bass track for an anchor or a guide, sped the song up to 150 beats per minute when the original was about 115. One acoustic guitar, and Ray taking the lead vocal. It went perfectly -- we used every track that we recorded. I then called Chris Shaw, who produced Ween's White Pepper album and mixed Moistboyz IV. He is the best producer and engineer I know and he dropped his Saturday Thanksgiving travel plans to mix it for me.

You can listen to Dean Ween's cover of "I Love You All the Time" below.

My Morning Jacket also covered "I Love You All the Time" live on the final of their four nights at NYC's Beacon Theatre (11/29). They asked for a moment of silence in memory of the Paris victims before playing it. Video of that cover is below, and look for a set of pictures from the first night of their Beacon run soon.

Ween, meanwhile, are reuniting for some live shows in 2016.

Roger Waters @ Newport Folk Festival 7/24/2015
Newport Folk Festival 2015
Newport Folk Festival 2015

The 2015 Newport Folk Festival was definitely one for the history books. For example, this year's festival marked the 50th anniversary of when some man named Bob Dylan (in)famously decided to go electric. This move totally flipped the wigs of many of his deadbeat hippie/beat fans and created a deep chasm among his many devotees. As a matter of fact, on Saturday July 25, exactly 50 years to the day that Bob went electric at the Festival, the very Fender Stratocaster that Dylan used back 1965 to go electric made an appearance at the festival. The guitar, which Dylan left on an airplane like a doofus back in 1965, ended up in the hands of the plane's pilot until 2012. In 2013 the pilot's daughter put it up for auction where it fetched almost a million US dollars and ended up in the hands of Indianapolis Colts football team owner Jim Irsay.

Cool story bro. However, for me, the festival was all about the highly anticipated and very surprising headlining set by former Pink Floyd leader Roger Waters. The Newport Folk Festival is notorious for selling out before the line-up is even announced. So when the Fest announced that Waters would be headlining opening day of the festival (Friday July 24), a lot of people in possession of Friday tickets were extremely stoked, while millions of Roger Waters/Pink Floyd fans without tickets were extremely bummed out. I was one of the bummed out legion until fate intervened on my behalf and I miraculously found myself in attendance.

When Roger announced on facebook on May 21, 2015 that he would be participating in the 2015 Newport Folk Festival and promised "an intimate appearance specifically crafted for Newport Folk," the ambiguity of his declaration had Floyd-heads reeling at the possibilities. Would he be doing a full scale performance of "Dark Side" or "The Wall"? Or even stripped-down versions? Would he be performing his seminal 1992 album Amused to Death in full? After all, Friday July 24 also happened to be the day "Amused to Death" would see a large-scale, multi-format re-release.

What the Festival audience ended up getting from Waters was better than any of the above, in my opinion. For rather than use his headlining slot as an opportunity to remind us of his immense back catalog, both as a solo artist and as Pink Floyd's primary creative force, Waters took the opportunity to deliver a diverse setlist that not only gave a hearty nod to his work with Pink Floyd and as a solo artist, but he used the opportunity to pay homage to the festival's history, the legacy of folk music, and to hit us with the ultimate double-whammy; performing a brand new, never-before-heard song while playing piano in front of a crowd, according to Waters, "for the first time ever."

Waters was preceded by a scorching eight-song set by My Morning Jacket. As the dust settled from their 8th song, MMJ remained on stage as Roger Waters sauntered out with Amy Helm (daughter of the late Levon Helm), G.E. Smith as well as Lucius and Sara Watkins. These folks, combined with My Morning Jacket, banded together and served as Roger's explosive and unbelievable back-up band.

Roger kicked things off by performing that new, powerful, and no doubt provocative, song called "Crystal Clear Brooks," which has its origins as a poem penned by Waters that he brought to light back in 2014. He followed that with the Pink Floyd classic "Mother" which segued into one of my personal favorites from Amused to Death, "The Bravery of Being Out of Range." At this point in the set, he switched gears and performed a really great cover of John Prine's "Hello in There" which is a sad reflection on aging and the fact that life is basically one long casting off. Sort of a cross between "Death of a Salesman" and Hanson Towne's "Around The Corner." Ugh, get me a pistol. Anyhow, from there they moved into Floyd territory and unleashed another song about loss and longing; the classic "Wish You Were Here."

At this point, the rain was REALLY coming down and besides being soaked to the bone and shivering like an orphaned dog, I was also officially coming to terms with how well-crafted and totally unpredictable this set was. He followed "Wish You Were Here" with Buddy Miller's "Wide River to Cross," a song completely foreign to me but played beautifully by the assembled musicians and expressed superbly through Waters' vocals. The next three songs were completely Waters territory; the band tore into the title track from "Amused to Death" with staggering results and then headed into "Dark Side" territory with flawless renditions of "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse." They company closed out the set appropriately and paid tribute to The Newport Folk Festival in general and Bob Dylan in particular with a version of Planet Waves' "Forever Young."

At some point towards the tail end of this magnificent set, the rain tapered off, the clouds began to part, and the sun finally began to reappear again. Roger Waters had assembled an amazing crew of musicians and pulled off a truly amazing, unpredictable, and fulfilling performance that lacked ego and pretension.

Unfortunately, Roger doesn't have many live dates coming up in the near future. However, he will be performing at Dar, Constitution Hall, in Washington DC on Friday October 16, 2015. Billed as "Music Heals" the concert will feature Roger Waters, the musicians of MusiCorps, and will feature special guests Bill Corgan, Sheryl Crow and Tom Morello. More info:

Music Heals: an exceptional one night only concert where some of the world's biggest recording artists will join forces to raise money for MusiCorps - a charity supporting injured service men and women and their families. The MusiCorps Band is made up of injured service members who have learned, and in some cases relearned, how to play instruments through the charity. MusiCorps is a non-profit charitable organization which helps wounded veterans play music and recover their lives. Praised by the Wall Street Journal as "revolutionary," the conservatory-level program enables the wounded to learn, relearn, and perform music as a core part of their rehabilitation.
Tickets for this show are on sale now.

In honor of the re-release of Roger Waters' 1992 solo album Amused to Death, we are giving away a limited edition 2xLP picture disc to one lucky person. Details on how to win are below.

MMJ

As rumored, Roger Waters used My Morning Jacket as his backing band at a Newport Folk Fest on Friday night (7/24). We'll talk more about that in more detail later, but as you can see in the setlist above and below, My Roger Jacket played Pink Floyd songs, Waters solo songs, and some covers too. MMJ played their own set too. Amy Helm (Levon's daughter), G.E. Smith, Lucius and Sara Watkins also joined for some songs. MMJ, Roger, and G.E. Smith previously teamed up for a Levon Helm related benefit in 2012.

Though it was gorgeous all day, the clouds really started rolling in during MMJ, and the skies opened up during Roger's set. The sun was back out by the end of his set though.

Rumors are starting to spread that Pink Floyd's Roger Waters is going to be backed by My Morning Jacket at Newport Folk Fest tonight!

My Morning Jacket and its members are Newport Folk Fest regulars, but they weren't on the schedule this year, despite being in the area to play Lewiston two days ago, and Xponential Music Festival in Camden on Saturday. Waters, who has promised a "very special" set, was a huge and surprising addition to the sold out Newport Folk Fest back in May. Jim James and crew on stage with Roger would definitely be very special (especially for My Morning Jacket!).

Stay tuned, and tune in to TuneIn.com to stream select sets from the fest live today, Saturday and Sunday. Actually Roger's set isn't listed on the streaming schedule, but Calexico, The Tallest Man on Earth, Heartless Bastards, Langhorne Slim, Courtney Barnett, Laura Marling and many more are on there. The full list of included artists and the embedded player are below.

On Sunday, My Morning Jacket play a show in Maryland with Jason Isbell who plays Newport on Saturday after playing a big free show in Prospect Park tonight (7/24).

Pink Floyd's other singer, David Gilmour, just announced a bunch of huge shows of his own, two nights at MSG included.

My Morning Jacket also just announced four Beacon Theater shows. Two are already sold out. Two are on pre-sale. All MMJ dates HERE.

Governors Ball
Governors Ball
Governors Ball

Florence and the Machine were the first act to put on a show worthy of a headliner. Drenched in warm golden light, Florence hopped around on one leg as she led the crowd in sing-alongs of hits such as What the Water Gave Me and Shake It Out. Her performance felt quite reserved compared to that of St Vincent, who brought out a pink Aztex-style pyramid and two backing dancers in chrome jumpsuits before putting on the performance of the day. Tracks like Marrow felt hugely aided by her band's saturated, chunky and almost shoddy-sounding synths, while St Vincent danced in sync with her troupe, who tottered around like Daryl Hannah's dying replicant in Blade Runner. The crowd were addressed as "citizens of New York city" and she stopped proceedings for a Thomas Pynchon-esque short story about an imagined storm in New York in which you grab an Arthur Russell record and Susan Sontag's diaries and hide out in a cupboard. [The Guardian]
Annual NYC music festival Governors Ball went down this past weekend on Randall's Island. Day 1, Friday (6/5), had Drake's hits-filled set, Ezra Koenig's guest appearance during Chromeo's set, an unfortunate Rae Sremmurd injury, St. Vincent, The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Florence + the Machine, Ratatat, Death From Above 1979, Odesza, Rudimental and more.

My Morning Jacket are back with The Waterfall, their first album in four years, which will be released on May 4. The album was recorded at Panoramic House in Stinson Beach, CA, a hillside studio that overlooks the Pacific -- a location that proved inspirational, says frontman Jim James:

For me, every record has the spirit of where we made it. Stinson Beach was so psychedelic and focused. It was almost like we lived on our own little moon out there. It feels like you're up in the sky.
You can check out first single "Big Decisions" below.

Already scheduled for appearances at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and other festivals, My Morning Jacket have now announced a full North American tour. Support along the way comes from Hiss Golden Messenger, Lizzo (who just opened for Sleater-Kinney), Lucius and others. All dates are listed below.
