JIM JAMES & TEDDY ABRAMS
My Morning Jacket’s Jim James collaborated with Teddy Abrams, composer, conductor, and music director of the Louisville Orchestra, on a song-cycle album about “politics, the natural order and the hopelessness of hatred.” They'll also be performing it live with orchestras in select cities.
Crack Cloud are a mixed-media collective based out of Vancouver, BC who, musically, make scratchy, danceable rock influenced by late-'70s postpunk. They released their self-titled debut last year, and returned in 2019 with the "Pain Olympics" singles series, the most recent installment being "Crackin Up" (watch the video below). Crack Cloud will play L.A.'s "Substance" festival this fall and will tour the West Coast on the way to and from the festival, including stops in San Francisco and Oakland with Lust for Youth, plus Sacramento, Arcata, CA and Portland. They're also on tour in Europe in September -- all dates are here.
Gibby Haynes played the 2019 edition of Catskills festival Meltasia earlier this month, where he did a Butthole Surfers set backed by kids from the Paul Green Rock Academy. They're doing it again in Brooklyn in October.
