The Deep Vibration
The more I look at this line-up, the more I realize what a diverse melting pot Larry has cooked up for us. Susan Werner is doing chamber-folk interpretations of pop tunes (Bob Marley, Simon & Garfunkel, Marvin Gaye among them) on her latest CD called "Classics". Ms. Werner is bringing a cellist with her to Mountain Stage after doing two shows at Joe's Pub in NYC.
Backyard Tire Fire have opened for gritty-prog rockers Clutch and former Drive By Trucker Jason Isblell, but their sound has a jangly, ringing guitar sound that echoes the likes of Tom Petty and North Mississippi Allstars. Dig this Chicago session of "Shoulda' Shut It" from their CD "The Places We Lived," available on vinyl, CD and Mp3. This could be the best song Weezer never wrote.
Singer-songwriter Tom Rush has emerged again into the public eye with this video for "The Remember Song," a "modern-day yuppie blues" as he calls it.
The video has over 3.5 million views, so there must be a lot of folks having the same difficulties with their memory as he is.
Then there's Austin, TX good-ol boys The Gourds who were Americana long before it was a genre with a chart. Their latest, Haymaker! has been climbing that chart.
This one promises to be a great show, so tell some friends, spread the word on MySpace and get your tickets today.
