Listen To A Great Bob Weir & RatDog Show Played On This Day, 15 Years Ago

first_imgOn this day back in 2001, Bob Weir & RatDog played Toledo, OH’s Stranahan Theater & Great Hall, for a what was a rocking performance that showcased the band’s ability to bring it to the next level at smaller theater gigs. Opening with New Orleans staple, and oft-covered Dead tune “Iko Iko”, the band went right into super funky “West LA Fadeaway” with a nice touch from the horn section. A pretty cover of The Beatles’ “Blackbird” slowed things up a bit, while “Eternity” (a Weir/Wasserman track co-written with Willie Dixon) proved the strength of this show very early on. “Scarlet > Iko Iko” gave the end of the first set a nice boost of energy leading into set break.The Second set was a non-stop jam, highlighted by a beautiful “Picasso Moon > October Queen”, and the “Estimated Prophet > The Other One Jam > Spanish Moon Jam > The Other One” portion of the set begs for a listen in and of itself. And make sure you check out the “Bass/Drums Jam”, some pretty interesting stuff going on there. This was a solid show front to back that showed Bobby locked in with a lineup that consisted of the recently passed Rob Wasserman (bass), Jeff Chimenti (keys), Mark Karan (guitar), Kenny Brooks (saxophone), and Jay Lane (drums).Setlist: Bob Weir & RatDog at the Stranahan Theater, Toledo, OH – 10/6/2001Set I: Iko Iko > West L.A.

Kraftwerk Show In Buenos Aires Threatened By Cancellation Due To Use Of “Synthesizers”

first_imgGerman electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk are scheduled to play Buenos Aires, Argentina later this month. That performance is now likely to be canceled, or at the very least postponed, due to the city’s recent ban of all electronic music events and any artist that “uses synthesizers or samplers as their primary instrument.”The ban was instated after the deaths of five attendees from drug overdoses at this past April’s Time Warp Argentina event. The city’s mayor, Horatio Rodriguez Larreta pushed for the ban after the unfortunate events following Time Warp, and has stated that there will be no lifting of the measure until steps have been taken by local officials and authorities to combat drug abuse.Promoters of the show, Move Concerts, have said that over 70% of tickets for the Kraftwerk show have already been sold. In response to the potential cancellation, they went on to say, “They use synthesizers, but what we’re proposing is a different format….It’s a concert that’s open to the public and runs between an hour-and-a-half and two hours. There will also be no alcoholic drinks served.”An appeal has been made by the promoters to allow the concert to move forward at this time, but no response has come just yet. In related news, Sónar Buenos Aires Festival has not encountered similar issues, and is still scheduled to happen.“Radioactivity” – HD Live:[courtesy of AgoraVoxFrance][via Resident Advisor]last_img read more
