51 Years Later, Bob Dylan Triumphantly Returns To Forest Hills Stadium

first_imgOn August 28th, 1965, Bob Dylan made one of the most infamous appearances of his career at the Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY. Many fans will point to Dylan “going electric” at the Newport Folk Festival as the turning point in his career, and in rock music at large, but the legend doesn’t stop with Newport. Dylan’s performance at Forest Hills in 1965 was hotly contested, with fans rushing the stage and throwing fruit immediately after Dylan took out an electric guitar.Of course, we now look back at that with bewilderment. Dylan was able to win over the crowd with his then-new songs, “Ballad Of A Thin Man” and “Like A Rolling Stone.” He won over everyone else too, and soon electric guitars became something of a mainstay for live performances. When Mumford & Sons tried to capitalize on the whole “going electric” phenomenon last year, music fans just rolled their eyes. Been there, done that.It took Mr. Dylan a good 51 years before he would make his return to Forest Hills, settling in last night at the beloved venue. Dylan’s set lists have become more predictable now, mainly focusing on his two latest releases, Shadows In The Night (2015) and Fallen Angels (2016). In that way, the 1965 and 2016 shows are similar; they both feature Dylan playing new and unfamiliar tunes, yet powerfully captivating an audience all the while. Dylan will always remain the voice of his generation.Still, Dylan makes time for one of his most classic songs in his shows. Watch “Blowin’ In The Wind” below, courtesy of Ny Kingyo.It’s good to have you back, Mr. Dylan. You can see the full setlist from Forest Hills, below.Edit this setlist | More Bob Dylan setlists[Cover photo via cb.photo.shoot/Instagram]last_img read more

Russ Liquid Test Fuses New Orleans And Dance Music In Bumpin’ Debut Single, “Honesty”

first_imgMeet The Russ Liquid Test! The new creation from Russell Scott aka Russ Liquid, is a live performance project that harnesses the funky power of New Orleans music. The band consists of Andrew Block on guitar, A.J. Hall & Alvin Ford Jr. on drums, and Russell Scott (Russ Liquid) on trumpet, keys, and a variety of technological extremities.The idea behind the live group came to life as Russ reflected on his performing style and the way in which he designs his music. A long-time admirer of jazz band leaders such as Dizzy Gillespie, his approach to composing music has always been influenced by the great minds he cherished. Constantly implementing improvisation into his writing and live performances, Russ hand-picked a select team of his favorite musicians to join him on the stage. Orchestrating his compositions as the psychedelic band leader, he guides the group through the tantalizing highs and glorious lows of his mind-bending sonic soundscapes.With a new EP due out later this year, the band introduced themselves with a brand new single. Stream “Honesty” below, and get ready to boogie.Says Russ, “We wanted to create something that embodies both the modern sound of electronic music with the rich heritage of New Orleans music, so we mashed up electronic production with the sounds of New Orleans second line in a very unique way that is both future and vintage.  The glue of this piece is the live drums with its second line-esque snare rolls and huge horn section driving the music, which we achieved by getting Alvin Ford Jr on drums (Dumpstaphunk and Pretty Lights) and a horn section featuring New Orleans players including Eric “Benny” Bloom of Lettuce and Aaron Neville’s band.”Expect big things from this new project, as they’ve already signed on to the All Good Records label.

Watch This Vulfpeck “Dean Town” Fan Cover Video Featuring Glass Harp, Tuba, Bassoon, And Bass

first_img[Photo: Brandon Weil] Outside of the band itself, one of the greatest things about the Brooklyn-based funk act Vulfpeck is their ability to inspire and compel fans and music freaks to create their own renditions of their technically complex numbers. However, while we love seeing fans cover their songs tunes using the more traditional instrumentation of guitar, bass, keys, and drums, sometimes the best things in life fall outside that box. Earlier today, Vulfpeck acknowledged this, posting a fan video compilation that showcases four ladies locking down the Joe Dart’s bassline from “Dean Town.”Some High School Student Started A Band Just To Mash Up Vulfpeck & PhishWith a caption noting “pre-web this instrumentation would’ve only happened in a modern art museum,” the video overlays videos of renditions of “Dean Town” on the bass, bassoon, tuba, and glass harp, making for a stellar watch.
