As previously discussed, this weekend is the Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama (May 20-22, 2011). As we wrote, "Hang Out Music Fest is heavy on the jam bands, but will also feature appearances from Paul Simon, The Black Keys, The Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, Foo Fighters, Motorhead, Cee Lo, Girl Talk, Minus The Bear, El Mariachi Bronx and many more over its three days." If you can't be there, iClips will be streaming performances online all weekend.
Speaking of Paul Simon, his tour just got bigger with the addition of another NYC show.
Speaking of My Morning Jacket and streaming, they'll be streaming a live show on May 31st directed by Todd Haynes.
Speaking of Foo Fighters, Motorhead and El Mariachi Bronx, BBG writes, "there's something wrong with the world when Motorhead is hitting the road supporting Foo Fighters, but nevertheless they're doing that right now with Biffy Clyro. Those dates include a showing at the Hangout Festival and conclude when Foo Fighters hit Sasquatch on May 27th."
Foo Fighters are also planning a trip to the Northeast, and have announed more dates that include one in the NYC-area at Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ on 9/26. Tickets go on sale 5/20 at 10AM and support at the NJ date, as with all dates on that leg, will come from Rise Against (who just played T5 twice two weeks ago with Bad Religion) and Mariachi el Bronx (who recently played Highline Ballroom, are also playing Hangout, and are playing a boat as the Bronx).
All FF tour dates and some video is below.
The 10th Anniversary ACL Festival line-up is on the books. Stevie Wonder, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Nas & Damian "Jr Gong" Marley and Cee Lo top the bill of the over 130 bands. Bright Eyes, Social Distortion, Empire of the Sun, Santigold, Pretty Lights, TV On The Radio, Skrillex, Big Boi and Randy Newman are also on tap to rock September 16-18.3-Day passes are sold out. 1-Day passes go on sale at 10am. Full lineup below...
Lollapalooza last year (more by Josh Darr)
Lollapalooza celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with some huge names on its just-announced lineup. See it in full below.
The festival has obviously changed over the years. What started out as a farewell tour for Jane's Addiction with a 'touring festival' lineup that included the Rollins Band, Nine Inch Nails, Butthole Surfers, and Souxsie & The Banshees, has turned into a one-weekend Chicago festival that Lady Gaga co-headlined last year. As leaked a while ago, Foo Fighters, Muse and Eminem all play this year, as will Coldplay, Cee Lo Green, and My Morning Jacket along with the reunited Cars and the continuing-to-be-reunited Big Audio Dynamite and Death From Above 1979, and a bunch of other bands which may or may not be worth the ticket price depending on how you feel about the headliners and generally seeing bands in big, hot, outdoor crowded parks (Lollapalooza happens in Chicago's Grant Park from August 5th - 7th).
Full 2011 Lineup and a couple of videos (one from 1991, one from 2010), below...
My Morning Jacket @ Terminal 5 in 2010 (more by David Andrako)
For six weeks, My Morning Jacket will offer free downloads to celebrate the forthcoming album Circuital. The first five downloads will be live songs taken from each of their shows at New York's Terminal 5 thisWho made it to My Morning Jacket's last NYC show, aka VH1 Storytellers (that Lykke Li is filming an episode of today)?
past October. On April 12th, the countdown ends with a new song from Circuital."
My Morning Jacket @ Terminal 5 (more by Matthew Eisman)
"On Thursday, February 24th VH1 will be filming an episode of Storytellers featuring My Morning Jacket and we want you to be a part of it! This will be a very intimate show and a rare opportunity for fans. Seating is extremely limited and the tickets will go fast so please respond soon!" More details, and other MMJ dates, below...
Bonnaroo (June 9-12 in Manchester Tennessee) has announced the 2011 lineup (slightly early), and like the rumored Lollapalooza lineup, Eminem is among the headliners. Bonnaroo also has Grammy winners Arcade Fire and the Black Keys, in addition to Lil Wayne, Mumford & Sons, the Strokes, The Decemberists, Florence & the Machine, Girl Talk, Beirut (haven't seen them in a while), and many more. Full list below...
National Christmas Tree
The countdown is on until the lighting of the National Christmas tree!
My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James will have the honor of performing at the 2010 National Christmas Tree Lighting. The event will be held [today] December 9th at 5pm EST on the Ellipse at President's Park in Washington DC. He will be joined by fellow performers B.B. King, Sara Bareilles, Maroon 5, and Jackie Evancho, and the evening will be hosted by rapper/actor Common. You can watch the ceremony live at www.thenationaltree.org or on public television throughout December. My Morning Jacket is currently recording a new full-length album, which will be released in 2011.Aside from the news on the tree-lighting, there's a few interesting things in the above statement: Jim James is playing for the President and is recording a new LP with MMJ, former battle-rhymer Common is non-threatening enough to be a TV show host on PBS, and BB King, despite numerous facebook and twitter hoaxes, is alive.
As a matter of fact, BB King, who did not have a stroke, will begin another tour of the United States on New Years Eve in Atlantic City. The tour stretches into the end of April, and he tags Wellmont Theater on 1/6 along the way. Full tour dates for (not zombified) BB King are below, along with some videos...

"The Preservation Hall Jazz Band suffered a serious blow, earlier this week, with the passing of bassist Walter Payton. Still, they played on (bassless) - with a photo of Walter, surrounded by flowers, sitting on a pedestal amid life-size wooden cutouts depicting departed PHJB members like John Brunious and Sweet Emma Barrett. My Morning Jacket's Jim James joined the band, as he had at Jazz Fest 2010 (MMJ appears on the band's latest album, "Preservation") for a short set that included a fierce double interpretation of "St. James Infirmary." James sang it straight, as a bluesy dirge; once he concluded, Hallahan grabbed a pair of sticks and joined drummer Joe Lastie for a hot, swung-out version. Hall vocalist Clint Maedgen scorched the mic; plenty of cowbell and tambourine gave the number a street-parade, Mardi Gras Indian feel (sort of like Wardell Quezergue's famous production of the Dixie Cups' "Iko Iko," which, legend has it, utilized ashtrays and water glasses for its unforgettably clanky percussion.)As noted in the setlist, Preservation Hall Jazz Band also joined My Morning Jacket on stage at Voodoo over the weekend. Preservation Hall Jazz Band's next show is at City Winery in NYC TONIGHT (11/3). More dates, pictures from Voodoo Fest, and some videos too, below...
After the song, the band second-lined out and into the crowd, then returned to the stage for a closing version of Leadbelly's "Goodnight Irene."
From somewhere, Payton surely felt well sent off." [Nola.com]

MGMT / My Morning Jacket
"It's more than an average sweat-your-brains-out, suffer-in-the-mud music festival. It's the Voodoo Experience, and it went down at City Park this weekend in New Orleans.MGMT probably had the most talked about costumes of the weekend. The band dressed up as the cartoon cast of Scooby Doo. More pictures and a bunch of videos from this past weekend's Halloween-themed New Orleans fest (not necessarily in order - a big mix of all three days), and MMJ's setlist (they covered Black Sabbath again), below...
Voodoo Fest, one of the world's largest Halloween parties, housed thousands of attendees who, for three days of musical bliss, watched some of the world's most notorious names -- including Muse, Ozzy Osbourne, MGMT and My Morning Jacket -- and donned costumes ranging from zombies to superheroes, fictional characters to condiments and anything and everything in-between."

My Morning Jacket ...ran through its most recent studio album, Evil Urges, in its entirety and later returned for a nine-song encore....[mixing] unreleased original songs with a range of covers that included: The Velvet Underground's "Oh! Sweet Nuthin," Sly Stone's "Hot Fun In The Summertime, Al Johnson's "Carnival Time" and Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up."...It was also the only night that got a 2nd encore. And the only night I made it up there after spending the rest of CMJ week basically working (and seeing BV shows). It was the perfect ending to the MMJ marathon, and to my CMJ week (though it wasn't the actual ending of my week, because right afterwards I shot down to Bowery Ballroom to catch some of Neon Indian and all of Surfer Blood who went on 1am and had a marathon week of their own).
After leaving the stage for a second time, My Morning Jacket returned to deliver a high energy take on the It Still Moves single "One Big Holiday." It was the only song My Morning Jacket repeated throughout its 100-song marathon. -[JamBands.com]
Besides the Evil Urges material, the covers, and powerful show closer "One Big Holiday", the band also ran through material due on a forthcoming LP ("Circuital" and "Friends Again"), and a track from Carl Broemel's solo record ("Carried Away").
Carl played his own headlining show at Joe's Pub in the middle of the Terminal 5 run. Jim James played the T Bone Burnett show at Beacon Theatre that same night. Members of Diamond Doves/Elvis Perkins' band once again joined MMJ on stage on horns Saturday night, like they did the night Elvis opened.

Seeing My Morning Jacket play Z on the Friday of the nearly week long CMJ festival immediately knocked all the overhyped bands, blog posts and sponsored parties of the week down a few pegs. This was a band at their peak, sufficiently warmed up and hitting all cylinders after playing 3 shows in the last 4 days. Their night off was spent playing solo or as special guests at other venues in the city. The cavernous Terminal 5 could barely contain the energy that MMJ produced all night.
Z, released in 2005 to almost universal critical praise, marked a turning point as the band brought in an outside producer, John Leckie, and recorded the album at Allaire Studios in the Catskills rather than at home in Kentucky. This was the album that made My Morning Jacket a headlining act at Bonnaroo and an international touring act that headlined Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.
MMJ took the stage shortly after 9:30 and tore through the three opening songs of the set ("Wordless Chorus", "It Beats 4 U" and "Gideon") before settling down with the fuzzy surf guitar influenced "Off the Record" and the calliope-like and rarely performed "Into The Woods." Although they were performing the songs of Z, I couldn't help but be reminded of their 2006 live album, Okonokos, which starts with the same first three tracks. The "Z" set ended with a 20 minute plus version of "Dondante" which featured lead guitarist Carl Bromel picking up a saxophone and soloing into a Jim James guitar solo using a glow stick as a bow on his guitar.
The band took a brief break and returned to the stage for a encore that ended with The Who's "A Quick One, While He's Away", Prince's "I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man" and Wham!'s "Careless Whisper". "Careless Whisper" was dedicated to George Michael who Jim James described as "One of the best singers of our lifetime" and encouraged the crowd to "send him some good vibes." James led the audience in a "Bananas" chant while throwing dozens of bananas to the crowd as the show was ending.
Opening act Holy Miranda kicked off her set with the slow building "Pelican Rapids" and by the time she covered Etta James's "I'd Rather Go Blind" she'd earned hundreds of new fans.

"My Morning Jacket returned to New York's Terminal 5 after a night off to perform its ATO debut It Still Moves in its entirety (though all five members of the group performed on their night off) (at Joe's Pub and Beacon Theater). Like the previous nights of the band's Terminal 5 run, the venue was decked out with drapery and blown up images of MMJs five albums.They perform "Z" tonight and "Evil Urges" Saturday. More pictures from last night, the full setlist, and video of the Lionel Richie cover, below...
Elvis Perkins in Dearland opened the night and the Dearland Horns sat in with My Morning Jacket at various points throughout the night, including "One Big Holiday." Former My Morning Jacket guitarist Johnny Quaid rejoined his former band on a few songs for the third night in a row, this time flanked by former Jacket keyboardist Danny Cash (2000-2004), Sex Mob/Levon Helm Band trumpeter Steven Bernstein and Levon Helm Band saxophonist Erik Lawrence. [Two nights] earlier Perkins made a surprise appearance with members of his band when they performed as Diamond Doves at Brooklyn, NY's Rock Shop (oddly enough, on a bill with longtime MMJ associates The Barr Brothers)."

My Morning Jacket's Terminal 5 run continued with a complete performance of 2001's At Dawn last night. The band ran through the entire album in sequential order, including the rarely--if ever--played "If it Smashes Down." Many of My Morning Jacket's early songs faded out of rotation after the group's December 2006 shows at San Francisco's Fillmore so "Death Is My Sleezy Pay" (last played 2005), "Hopefully"(last played during a full band performance), X-Mas Curtain (last played 2006), "Just Because I Do" (last played 2004) and "Strangulation!" (last played 2005) were also bustouts.Danzig! Video of that (complete with funny fan commentary), along with the full setlist and more pictures from last night (tonight is their night off - except for Carl), below...
Like Monday night's performance, the members of My Morning Jacket returned for an extended encore that featured covers and B-sides the band played during the At Dawn era. The band's covers ranged from the moody Danzig song "How The Gods Kill" to an extended jam during Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath." [jambands.com]

One down, four to go. My Morning Jacket played Terminal 5 last night (10/18) with Dungen as part of their five night stay highlighting their past album output. Last night, The Tennessee Fire got the nod:
While the band has toyed with The Tennessee Fire songs like "Nashville To Kentucky" and "Butch Cassidy" at recent shows, My Morning Jacket had not performed numbers like "It's About Twilight Now" and "Picture of You" in over four years. With the exception of a 2007 benefit performance that found the members of My Morning Jacket performing with different musicians, the group had also not played "Old September Blues" in almost a decade.The party continues tonight (10/19) with MMJ focusing their energies on At Dawn with support from Hacienda. Tickets may still be available.
The group returned for a seven-song encore that featured several covers and b-sides James and company recorded for its various EPs around the time of The Tennessee Fire. The mini-set opened with "I Just Wanted To Say" from the group's holiday EP Does Christmas Fiasco Style and included covers of Elton John's "Rocket Man," Erykah Badu's "Tyrone" (which the band played with the singer in 2008), The Great Society's "White Rabbits" and Rod Stewart's "Hot Legs." -[JamBands]

WHAT. A. SHOW.That review refers to the show My Morning Jacket played Friday night in Portland, Maine. The show marked the reopening of Portland's State Theatre, courtesy of Bowery Presents who will also host the band at Terminal 5 in NYC for five nights starting tonight.
If I could have made it to any of the T5 shows (which I can't) it would have been TFF so I was so happy they played a bunch of tunes from that on Friday. They Ran had an incredible outro which some wailing falsetto. I've never been much of a Butch Cassidy fan, but this live version made me appreciate it so much more (the sounds Tommy was getting out of his bass were incredible). I was really hoping for a Dondante and it was great to hear this song after a few shows without it.
The encore was a thing of perfection for me, but hell the whole show was perfect! Phone Went West is a great song to "end" the show on before a rippin' One Big Holiday. I was right in front of Carl and got blasted with confetti during OBH, a great touch.
There was a point during the encore when I realized how wonderful my life was as I stood holding my woman watching my favorite band in the world play the best setlist I've ever seen.

AA Bondy at FYFest (more by Chris Juarez)
AA Bondy kicks of a string of dates today, 10/5, in Woodstock, NY before heading to Bowery Ballroom Wednesday (10/6) for a show that now includes openers Dawn Landes and Diamond Doves. Tickets are still available. On Thursday, AA Bondy becomes opener for The Walkmen for a few days, and then plays a few more shows of his own as well.
The Bowery show is one of two upcoming dates for Diamond Doves. The band will also hit Rock Shop on 10/19 as part of a CMJ showcase headlined by The Barr Brothers (of The Slip) with Theiving Irons and Ravens & Chimes. That's two days before the band re-emerges as the backing band for Elvis Perkins to play a sold out show at Terminal 5 with My Morning Jacket (10/21). In addition, Nick Kinsey, Brigham Brough, Mike Irwin and Wyndham Boylan Garnett of Diamond Doves will support My Morning Jacket as their backing horn section for 10/21, 22, and 23.
Dawn Landes recently returned from a European tour with Josh Ritter, and the pair recorded a Heady West cover, "500 Miles", to kick off the dates. Download that for the price of an email address.
Tour dates and some recent live video, below...
The gradual return of Levon Helm to singing and performing since undergoing throat cancer surgery in 1998 had a tremendous payoff Sunday night (8/15) at the Greek Theater, where the Band's drummer and Southern spirit responded to an admiring crowd with a dazzling two-hour concert.The above review comes from a Levon Helm Band appearance in LA in August (not long after Levon played Radio City Music Hall with Willie Nelson). The former member of The Band will return to NYC for two dates sectioned at Beacon Theater in November. They'll be joined by special guests Steve Earle (on 11/26) and Bettye Lavette (on 11/27). Tickets for the Thanksgiving weekend shows are currently on AMEX presale (11/26 here and 11/27 here), and go on regular sale at noon on Friday (9/17).
Helm's presence -- at 70, he's still a ferocious drummer -- was cheered as much as the top-notch music-making; this show was a celebration of a creative life, of multiple strains of American music and of one man's determined will to soldier through adversity.
Sunday's show at the Greek [in Los Angeles] is the farthest west Helm and his 10-piece band band, led by guitarist Larry Campbell, have traveled since Helm returned to performing a little more than six years ago. In early 2004, he converted his Woodstock, NY, barn into a concert venue for the so-called "Midnight Ramble," asking, essentially, for fans to come to him, where they would be treated to an informal musical gathering with his band and esteemed guests. -[Soundspike]
Those in the mood for a road trip can head to Woodstock to check out Levon Helm at one of his Midnight Ramble sessions. Taking place fairly often (sometimes weekly), the space will also host Steve Earle (10/9, 10/23) and My Morning Jacket (10/16, before they play Terminal Five x5) in the coming months.
Full tour dates and some vids of the man at Midnight Ramble are below...
T Bone Burnett will premiere The Speaking Clock Revue - a multi-artist concert extravaganza - on October 16 at the Wang Center in Boston and October 20 at the Beacon Theater in New York City. Both evenings of the Revue will feature performances by Elton John & Leon Russell, John Mellencamp, Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Ralph Stanley, Jeff Bridges, Punch Brothers, Karen Elson, and newcomers The Secret Sisters. In addition, Neko Case and Jim James from My Morning Jacket will join the lineup in Boston and New York respectively.Elton John & Leon Russell will release a T Bone-produced collaborative album entitled The Union on October 19th which is the same day they play another show at Beacon Theater (making the Speaking Clock show their second at the NYC venue in two days). All dates below.
The concerts will be presented in a revue format with a house band consisting of the players featured on numerous Burnett-produced recordings. Tickets for The Speaking Clock Revue will go on sale Monday, September 27 at noon, through Ticketmaster.
All net proceeds from these shows will be donated to The Participant Foundation to support music and arts education programming in public schools."
The T Bone benefits were inspired by the new documentary, Waiting for "Superman". More info on that and the shows in general, with the documentary trailer and tour dates, below...

Carl of My Morning Jacket at Outside Lands
Jim James of My Morning Jacket said it himself during his band's opening set. We were all about to have a great time, he assured us, listening to the Heartbreakers. Not Tom Petty, or "Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers," as they were always billed in their '80s MTV videos. Just the Heartbreakers.My Morning Jacket completed their run of dates with, ahem, The Heartbreakers, and after a few dates this weekend, will prep for their five night stay at Terminal Five. Each night will see them revisiting old LPs with The Tennessee Fire being played in full on Oct 18th, At Dawn on 19th, It Still Moves on 21st, Z on 22nd, and Evil Urges on 23rd (tickets for 10/18 and 10/19 are still available). Those dates leave My Morning Jacket without a show on October 20th, but it won't be a day for relaxation.
James may not have been trying to make a point, but a point was made nevertheless. Petty's combo has always been a collaborative project: a band in the truest sense, and often one of the most engaging, if not always the most creative, on the Billboard charts.
...My Morning Jacket continue to split the difference between polite college rock and proggy, Phish-like jam band lunacy. That makes them better than any college rock band, but not as fun as Phish. Jim James favors a rotating setlist, but at Izod Center, My Morning Jacket played most of their best-known material, including "I'm Amazed," the reggae-funk "Off The Record," and the guitar-heavy "One Big Holiday." The popular Louisville quintet isn't desperate for new fans, but they certainly made some last night.
-[NJ.com review from the Izod Center]
My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel will play a solo show that night at Joe's Pub, showcasing material from his upcoming LP All Birds Say. Tickets are on sale. Order All Birds Say in multiple digital/vinyl/CD/T-Shirt configurations, and check out "Heaven Knows" available for download above.

"At the sold-out Sasquatch, bands holding down the headliner spots haven't necessarily turned out to be the biggest draws. Sure, My Morning Jacket played to a mostly packed house on Saturday, and Massive Attack was overwhelmingly solid on Sunday despite a not-so-full amphitheater floor, but the band drawing the most populous, most stoked, most deserved gathering was unquestionably Vampire Weekend."
