Longtime taper and Grateful Dead enthusiast Scott Bernstein unveils the six show, 18-CD box set from the band’s 1990 tour. David Lemieux handpicked these shows and Dennis McNally says it’s the last great tour from the Dead.
Watch the second part of Scott Bernstein’s tour below:
Burlington singer, rocker, and guitarist Grace Potter of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals sat in with moe. last night, belting out the Rolling Stones tune “Gimme Shelter.” The last time the band covered the song was in March of 2008 at the Sherman Theater, in Stroudsburg, PA.
Potter has been opening up for Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney on their “Brothers of the Sun” summer tour, starting in early June and continuing through August.
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals opened the main stage at moe.down 13, taking place at Snow Ridge Ski Resort in Turin, NY, and was followed up with two sets from upstate jam band rockers, moe.
moe. started off their weekend “too fucking high” with a “Plane Crash” opener, continued the pot references with “Not Coming Down” and “Okay Alright” by “smoking joints in the parking lot.” moe. proved once again that the best played versions of “Timmy Tucker” happen outside at moe.down and usually follow a tremendous rain storm.
With rain showers hitting the mountain on and off for most of the day, festival-goers raged on under the VIP Saranac beer tent, umbrellas, and rain gear and tried to However much rain fell, it didn’t stop the positivity, good vibes and excitement of moe.’s 13th summer festival.
Second set had Kyle Hollingsworth from String Cheese Incident sitting in on keys for “Happy Hour Hero” — Hollingsworth played two sets on the second stage with his own band. “Head” had a super long jam section and a super heady encore of “Seat of My Pants” and “Akimbo.”
The Wood Brothers, Galactic, HIGH TIMES Band of the Month Leroy Justice, and Chicago’s JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound will play between two stages today — along with two more highly anticipated headlining sets from moe. on the main stage starting at 8pm.

Every once in awhile you get the premium spot to record video from–namely the front row, pit, or an elevated section where fans’ heads and other cameras aren’t in your way. Once you shoot your stellar vid you go home and either upload it, or it sits on a hard drive to be forgotten. This vid of The Avett Brothers was one of those primo vids…great vantage point (handicap section in an otherwise sold-out packed venue), good sound…and just an amazing capture of an awesome performance of the phenomenal performance of “I and Love and You” from the Avetts. BUT, when I got home and started the transfer…this video VANISHED and automatically deleted from my computer and from the Flip Cam HD that I use. So upset I could’ve cried, my husband Scott Bernstein (a computer genius and audio taper) SAVED THE DAY by running software on his computer that brings back recently deleted files. He calmed me and said he’d be able to save the video and lo and behold he did!! Without Scott this amazing video would have been nothing but a memory…but alas, here it is…in all its glory.
Last night two amazing Brooklyn based bands joined forces at Brooklyn Bowl. Soulive invited Citizen Cope, among many other guest musicians that night (hello George Porter, Jr.! hello Skerik! hello Billy Martin!) to the stage to perform a handful of songs: Some older, some newer … and all amazing. In this vid capture, Eric Krasno, guitarist for Soulive, really nails the soft and gentle dynamics of Cope’s “Something to Believe In” a tune previously written and recorded by Cope for Debi Nova. For me, the pairing of Soulive and Cope brought together two very different musical worlds and sounds. I’m a big fan of both–but was wondering how they would mesh. Would the slightly jazzier Soulive jive with the understated melodies of Cope’s super-mellow, sometimes emo-driven lyrics and vocals? The answer was, simply put, yes. If you’re familiar with the ever-moving nature of Soulive (see Rubber Soulive the band’s take on The Beatles Rubber Soul) you’d know that as a band they are so musically adept that they just as easily can adapt. That’s the beauty of Bowlive, the pairings and special guests that are invited and join the Soulive sound.
Hard to believe that last weekend we were at the Garden. While shooting this vid from the back of the 100-level section I remember being blissfully freaked out. It combines a sick light show from the creativity of Chris Kuroda’s mind and a beautiful and spacey jam from Phish. Moments like these were rare at the Garden this year. You’ll hear a lot of stretchy Clavinet from Page McConnell (Chairman of the Boards!!) and the treble of Mike’s bass punching through and accenting the song (I think the end of Piper?) with some upfront activity.
New York Guitar Festival – Feat: Mike Gordon, Larry Campbell – World Financial Center, Winter Garden
The 2012 New York Guitar festival kicked off this past evening at the Winter Garden Atrium, in the World Financial Center, by celebrating 30 years of Brian Eno’s album, “Apollo: Atmosphere and Soundtracks.”
The album, played LIVE for the first time ever, featured Mike Gordon (bass) Larry Campbell (guitar) David Torn, Noveller, and Jeff Parker. A tribute to NASA’s Moon landings, Eno’s album imagines very ethereal, peaceful-yet-haunting, moving, and spacey(literally!) sounds and soundscapes.
Played in its entirety, Eno wanted the music to induce a feeling of “weightlessness” and so there’s no way a note-for-note replication could be created of these highly-complicated tracks–though, if any band has come close–it was this lineup.
This video of the band “jamming”
captures the band improvising on their own, after completing the album, and being introduced to the full house at Winter Garden. Oops, looks like you’re not allowed to see that video!! Also amazing were the moving images of nebulae, swirling dust, and spoken word about the Apollo moon landings and NASA. Remember kids: We are all molecules.
