Blackberry Smoke Burns Through Hell’s Kitchen

Source: New York Music Daily

The song that drew the most powerful response at Blackberry Smoke’s show last night was Waiting for the Thunder, the snidely apocalyptic anthem that opens their latest album Like an Arrow. “Why do we stand by and do nothing while they piss it all away?” drawled frontman/lead guitarist Charlie Starr.

He was referring to those “with the power and the glory” who “get more than they deserve.” A little later, he and guitarist Paul Jackson took a sarcastic twin solo that referenced a cheesy Aerosmith hit from the 70s as bass player Rchard Turner made a slinky upward climb, ...

Lavishly Fun Camaraderie with Peter Apfelbaum’s New York Hieroglyphics at the Stone

Source: New York Music Daily

Sunday night Peter Apfelbaum wrapped up a weeklong stand at the Stone with a sprawling, serpentine, unselfconsciously joyous (and surprisingly tight) performance by his long-running large ensemble the New York Hieroglyphics. It’s a fair guess that crowds outside of New York would pay obscenely to see such a pantheonic lineup, which also comprised trumpeter Steven Bernstein, trombonists Josh Roseman and Natalie Cressman, violinist Charlie Burnham. guitarist Will Bernard, tenor saxophonist Tony Jones, multi-reedman Norbert Stachel, bassist Brad Jones, drummer JT Lewis and singer Abdoulaye Diabate.

They played with the cameraderie of a group that’s existed, if on and off and ...

Grateful Dead fans, otherwise known as Deadheads, and John Mayer fans alike, gathered from all over the tristate area last night as Dead & Company headlined a completely sold out show at Camden’s BB&T Pavilion. The entire venue was a sea of tie dye and covered in a haze of smoke as the crowd was taken back to the psychedelic time of the 1970s – when the Grateful Dead (the Dead) were in their prime.

Dead & Company did everything last night just as they did back then – in ...

It’s been 50 years since 1967 and the “Summer of Love” – a moment in history where peace, love, and freedom inspired positive grassroots change. You could even argue that one could split the 20th century into two eras: before 1967 and after 1967, the latter indicating the beginning of the sexual revolution, women’s rights movement, and aftermath of the civil rights movement.

Experimental music flourished during this period, with “flower power” psychedelia in full swing. Iconic albums like The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts ...
