still from 'Inside Llewyn Davis'
Inside Llewyn Davis is the new Coen Brothers film starring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund and Justin Timberlake, which has been on the festival circuit this year (including this fall's New York Film Festival) and will open in December. The music in the film was executively produced by T-Bone Burnett, and mostly consists of covers of old folk songs. The soundtrack will be released on November 12 via Nonesuch.
The film's music will be celebrated and performed in NYC on September 29 at Town Hall during a big concert that features Jack White, Patti Smith, Colin Meloy (The Decemberists), Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Punch Brothers, Avett Brothers, Milk Carton Kids, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), and more, in addition to some of the film's cast, including Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, and Stark Sands.

This one gets a big "!!!!". Listen to the song, with more info about the above-pictured new holiday album, below...
It seemed inevitable that Adele would be tapped to do a Bond theme and here we are with Skyfall. The movie actually looks like it might be good! As for the theme song, Adele and cowriter/producer Paul Epworth are channeling classic John Barry-era Bond and will be drawing comparisons to Shirley Bassey. A lyric video of the song is at the bottom of this post. (you can also buy it on iTunes)
Speaking of buying on iTunes, that's one place you can get the new album by Flying Lotus who just announced a CMJ show which happens about a week after all his other NYC appearances including this weekend's record fair.
Still time to get a ticket to our free-with-free-ticket AC Newman show happening Monday in Brooklyn. Meanwhile you can stream the new album in its entirety below.

Speaking of the Punch Brothers, as mentioned, primary Brother Chris Thile is one of this year's MacArthur Fellows. Which means he gets lots of money. Congrats also to winner Claire Chase of the International Contemporary Ensemble (aka ICE)., Maybe you caught her recently at the new Original Music Workshop venue, or during the 2010 Bang on a Can Marathon, or at one of the many other times she has performed in and around Brooklyn where she lives.
The big Animal Collective show at Williamsburg Park is this Friday. Tickets are still available. If you go, make sure and get there early for Micachu & the Shapes, or just go see Micachu headline LPR on Monday with recently added opener Mykki Blanco. Win tickets at the BV Facebook.

Kraftwerk, Rush and Public Enemy might be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
Finally an answer to Rolling Stone's "Women Who Rock!" issue: Seattle's The Stranger presents, "Men Who Rock!," complete with sexy pinup photos. Hot! What, no Lars Finberg?
PD spotted what is estimated to be 7-10 Million Dollars worth of pot growing on a Chicagoland farm with "plants as big as trees."
The first "official" photos of the reunited cast of Arrested Development have surfaced. The improbably fourth season of the show will "air" (stream) on Netflix in 2013. Meanwhile, New York Magazine has details on how you can win a walk-on.

Beach Boys @ The Grammys
Though the Bonnaroo lineup won't be announced until later today (via Spotify), Knoxville.com has supposedly leaked some of it via a photo gallery which includes Beach Boys, Radiohead, Bon Iver, Phish, Foster the People, Alice Cooper, Ludacris, Black Star, Skrillex, Punch Brothers, The Avett Brothers, The Shins, Flogging Molly, Feist and Aziz Ansari. We can't know for sure if this is all correct, but I did hear that the Beach Boys were playing, and many of those bands have been rumored for a while, and the Beach Boys have promised more dates, so... well, we'll see soon! UPDATE: Yep, they are!
If it is all true, I really hope that this time Foster the People stay off the Beach Boys' stage unlike at the Grammys, as you can watch below...

JTE in Prospect Park
Prospect Park was taken over by country and bluegrass-leaning folkies on Thursday night (6/28) when Justin Townes Earle and The Punch Brothers played a free show at the outdoor Brooklyn venue.

And we knew that the 33rd annual series of free shows would start with an Andrew Bird show on June 10th, and that BRIC is also hosting three free 'dance parties' in Brooklyn Bridge Park this summer too.
Now the entire 2011 lineup of "24 free performances, including 20 music concerts, two dance performances, two film screenings with live music, and a family concert" is here! You can check it all out (The Feelies, Real Estate, The Books, Junip, Doveman, Justin Townes Earle, Punch Brothers, Raekwon, Oumou Sangaré, Times New Viking, Ra Ra Riot, Delicate Steve, Buke & Gass and Hal Willner included), below...

Chris Thile and the Punch Brothers played a sold out, headlining show at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (4/16). They're known for having fun and doing covers, and one of their choices this time was the Strokes' 'Reptilia.' Video of that, more pictures from the show and dates too, below...
"I was fortunate to catch The Punch Brothers at the Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night. I think I've seen them perform a good six times in the last year and a half? Honestly, I've lost count, because I've probably seen Chris Thile (who is part of the band) just as many. I consider it such a privilege to live in a city that not only breeds and encourages new talent but also offers up many an opportunity to see the music I love. I could (and have) gone on about this band before, but each concert I attend is different and amazing. The Secret Sisters opened and Karen Elson, the supermodel married to Jack White, performed with the bands as well." [Delighted & Charmed]That review refers to the 1/15 Punch Brothers and Secret Sisters show at Bowery Ballroom where special guest Karen Elson joined both bands.
Punch Brothers will return to Bowery Ballroom on April 16th, this time for a revival of p-Bingo Night...
"p-Bingo Night is Punch Brothers' creative process (made slightly more entertaining, hopefully) on display at the Living Room [ on Thursday nights in 2009 and 2010]. In addition to other delights, you can expect to see the Brothers trying out new material, improving existing material, and appropriating material that they wish was theirs, i.e. Radiohead, Bach, D'Angelo, James King, etc., right in front of your very eyes... or ears, rather, though music is generally better seen than heard. Also, there will be Special Guests, the coattails of whom the Brothers will surely ride to fame and fortune! Please note: little to no bingo will be played."Tickets for the April Bowery show are on sale. Check below for the full slate of PB dates which stretch from coast to coast and into June.
Among those dates are also two solo dates for Punch Brothers mandolin master Chris Thile. The first of those dates, Feb 8th, will see him team with Michael Daves for a sold-out date at Rockwood Music Hall. The second is March 2nd at Le Poisson Rouge with Gabriel Kahane and Brad Mehldau. Tickets are still available.
Gabriel Kahane also plays a show at Merkin Concert Hall as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival three days after LPR.
Tour dates videos below.
The WFUV Holiday show happens tonight, 12/6, at the Concert Hall in NYC. Citizen Cope and Amos Lee share a bill with the Secret Sisters and Punch Brothers who will again share a bill on 1/15 at Bowery Ballroom. The Secret Sisters also have upcoming shows scheduled with Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn.
Punch Brothers are headlining Bowery Ballroom on January 15th. Tickets are on sale.
