HARD Summer Returns To A Dirt Lot Near Downtown Los Angeles

HARD Summer Returns To A Dirt Lot Near Downtown Los Angeles

Editors Note: In case you could not tell our pal Reverend Justito likes to say heck no to techno. If this offends you then we did our job right.

Good news for E-tards in Southern California and beyond. The HARD Summer Festival is returning to that craptastic dirt lot adjacent to downtown Los Angeles. LA Weekly has broken the lineup and really you would have to be on HARD drugs to enjoy most of the acts. Highlights (if you can call them that) include Skrillex, Bloc Party and that dude who used to be in LCD Soundsystem. You have access to Google, so I am sure you can figure out when tickets go on sale, and hopefully no 15 year old kids die because it would be sad to see a news story here in Los Angeles not about the Lakers or Lindsay Lohan. Line-up is below the nifty viral video the HARD Summer folks made to request your presence at LA State Historic Park on August 3rd and 4th.

thenaturalstoner’s Top 10 Shows of 2011

thenaturalstoner’s Top 10 Shows of 2011

2011 was undoubtedly my finest concert going year on record (out of 31!).  I saw over 80 bands, did several awesome road trips, brought in visitors from around the country to come to the Gorge Amphitheatre, and almost all my shows were at least ‘decent’.  Obviously some rise to the top, and some fall to the bottom… so here is my list of best concerts of 2011.

10) Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings 05/30/11 – The Gorge – George, WA (Sasquatch Festival)

I had seen Sharon Jones a couple years ago sing backup to Phish in Indio, California, so I was very excited to finally see one of Sharons own sets with the entire Dap-Kings. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer!  Sharon was amazing and I got to meet her after her set over in the meet and greet area (AWESOME idea Sasquatch), which was a super cool experience.  After Chromeo and Sharons sets, the final day on Sasquatchs mainstage was off to a blistering Monday afternoon start!

9) Foo Fighters 05/27/11 – The Gorge – George, WA (Sasquatch Festival)

I love Foo Fighters and this was my first chance to see them live.  Well, let me take that back, I had one prior opportunity and didn’t exactly “make it to the show” that night.  Over 10 years later, I got my second chance and the Foos rocked me just like I wanted.  Headlining Sasquatchs first ever Friday night, the Foo Fighters rocked my face off.

8) Modest Mouse 05/29/11 – The Gorge – George, WA (Sasquatch Festival)

When I made my festival review immediately after the Sasquatch Festival, I put this Modest Mouse set as number one on my list.  Over time, perspective pushed Chromeo over that for me, however this set was a monster, and something I was desperately looking for that weekend.  Going into Sasquatch I was hoping some band I have heard but never appreciated would turn me into a fan, and Modest Mouse did that FAR more than any other.  I am looking at you Wilco, Death Cab, etc.

7) Soundgarden 07/30/11 – Gorge Amphitheater – George, WA

A huge 4 band lineup, including the Meat Puppets, Queens of the Stone Age and Mastodon, concluded with Soundgardens tour closer at the Gorge, a “hometown” show finale.  The experience of meeting ConcertConfessions own Jay Porks and having Soundgarden live up to all my expectations made this a huge weekend stop in central Washington!  I even did a Babe Ruth called shot right before Pretty Noose.  Ahhh good times…

6) Eddie Vedder 07/15/11 Benaroya Hall – Seattle, WA

If it wasn’t for the following nights epicness, this show would have left a much higher imprint on me.  A fantastic show, in a beautiful venue, and getting the opportunity to tell Krist Novoselic “Thank you”, and get a “You’re welcome” back, made this a once in a lifetime night.  Thanks the Jesus I got into these shows after 5 attempts at various online ticket sales.


5) Chromeo 05/30/11 – The Gorge – George, WA (Sasquatch Festival)

I think Chromeo’s Tweet following the show says it all: “Moved to tears, Sasquatch.”

4) Ween 07/02/11 – Les Schwab Amphitheater – Bend, OR

A fun road trip to Bend, Oregon with several friends left us with a great Ween weekend.  Poopship Destroyer, Monique the Freak, Slow Down Boy, Waynes Pet Youngin, etc were great, but when Baby Bitch was played, and then Birthday Boy followed, this show got real.  What a moment!  Ween treats us well in the Northwest! Staying at the Rainbow Motel in Bend was the icing on the cake! Here is Poopship Destroyer from ConcertConfessions own Phishbeard.

3) Phish 08/06/11 – Gorge Amphitheater – George, WA

A show that felt exactly opposite from the night before to me flow wise.  The show got GREAT at the end, instead of a solid start. Reba with whistling, a teaseful Antelope and a super encore with Sanity and a Suzy Greenberg that I needed to hear to get off my stats list (even though I “saw” it at Festival 8). And the pizzadillas!!!!

2) Phish 08/05/11 – Gorge Amphitheater – George, WA

What a JAM!  Rock and Roll > Fire on the Mountain Jam (I still insist this happened) > Meatstick > Boogie On Reggae Woman was one of the best segues thrown down in years.  If the set didn’t go limp after Boogie On this could have been a number one contender.  This Rock and Roll jam gets to hang out up with the Boise AC/DC Bag and Inglewood Bathtub Gin as favorite Jams of my life. Getting to have Reverend Justito make it up to our neck of the woods for his first ever Gorge shows made this a perfect weekend.  One of the best camping setups we’ve ever had at Phish too. We did this weekend right. Here is a GREAT Roggae, with an unusually long (great!!) jam, that the Rev got on tape:

1) Eddie Vedder 07/16/11 Benaroya Hall – Seattle, WA

When I look back at all the concerts I have ever been to, again 31 years worth, two specifically stand out to me as “best evers”. My first Phish show, 7/17/98 at the Gorge, and a random Phish show on a Tuesday night in Boise back in 1999 where the band decided to produce a set as grand as any they have ever played.  The only way I know how to describe this Eddie Vedder show is to say that it is on the same level as those two Phish shows from the late 90s.  This was no doubt one of the best concert experiences of my life, and gave me an exuberant feeling of positivity that I wasn’t sure still existed in this world (it had been 12 years since something hit me like this after all). Everything about this night was perfect, highlighted by an astounding mid-set run of: Needle and the Damage Done > Long Road > Wishlist > Man of the Hour > I Am Mine that rivals anything I have ever seen.

 

Just missed the cut: Major Lazer, John Prine, Big Boi, Meat Puppets, Hall and Oates, Sleigh Bells.

Biggest Disappointment: The Flaming Lips, The Gorge Sasquatch Festival. Described as a “Soft Bulletin” set (we didn’t even get the whole album), this gig was full of distractions (who sings ‘Happy Birthday’ to a music Festival mid Album set?) and too much wandering banter from Wayne Coyne. For my first Lips show, I was hoping for a LOT more.

Funny moment on video: I had a funny thing happen during Flogging Molly at the Sasquatch Festival.  Near the end of recording video of ‘Don’t Shut Em Down’, some guy taps me on the shoulder and says, “Vomits running down onto your bag!”. I look down and sure as shit the lady about 5 feet behind me had puked and it was streaming down below my feet!  See 3:10 into this vid!

 

Worst show: The Presidents of the United States of America, Cub Ballroom, Pullman, WA. Just terrible.

You know what else was cool?: Giving Marcus Trufant a “Go Cougs!” at Lil Wayne at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, WA!

Sasquatch! Festival – Monday 5/30/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre

Sasquatch! Festival – Monday 5/30/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre

Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner

 

Monday morning was a little bittersweet.  Of course we started with a morning drink, but Mr. Sparkly was already gone for a couple days and Phishbeard was unable to stay for one last blow out, so I rocked Monday at the Gorge solo.  I had company from our neighbors of course, and the day turned out to be a total success.  I got to meet an artist I really like, we had some crazy weather, and some totally awesome tunes made the last day of Sasquatch! 2011 one to remember!

I went into the venue solo, but eventually met up with my Calgary crew in time to see Chromeo on the Main Stage.  I saw a couple Noah & the Whale songs on my way down to the Chromeo set, and they sounded good.  Unfortunately there was no time to waste before my show and I couldn’t stay.

I just want to say that Chromeo was easily the best act on the Main Stage all day, although Sharon Jones gave them a run for their money.  After watching the Coachella webcast, I was determined to see this performance.  It was quite an odd placement at 2:45 in the afternoon but the Gorge boogied as hard as it had all weekend.  Of all the 45 minute sets, this one was easily my favorite of the four days. “I-WANT-MY-CHROMEO”

Guided by Voices was next and the crowd really thinned out. Odd planning there.  The reunion tour was fun for some, but many in the crowd decided it was time to check out other acts.  After a few songs I left and saw one White Denim song (wish I had seen more) on my way to watch Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings close on the floor.

Sharon Jones brought the HEAT to the Gorge.  Her energy is amazing and she had that crowd on its feet from the very first second she was on the stage up until she left one hour later.  I took the opportunity afterwards to go to the meet and greet and say hello.  Sharon was very gracious and I got a picture, a kiss on the cheek, and the chance to ask her about signing with my favorite band Phish.  It was a great moment for me.  She also got a fan out of the crowd and danced and sang with him on stage during her set!

I had to sacrifice Best Coast to catch almost all of Rodrigo y Gabriela, who was amazing.  This is one band that turned me into a little bit of a fan, and Gabriela kicks ass!  The first poor weather (except for the wind) began during this set as rain would start to come down.  Some thought it added an element of fun to the set and were tired of baking in the heat for four days, so it wasn’t all bad.  After Rodrigo y Gabriela the weather did take a little twist, as we were greeted to many lightning blasts during The Decemberists and Wilco.

The Decemberists were a lot of fun, pretty darn good actually.  I like these Portland, Oregon folks a lot and their set did not disappoint.  I equate them to Iron and Wine, and I thought The Decemberists set was more fun.  They opened with The Infanta and played many that I like.  I remember Down by the Water, The Crane Wife 3 and others standing out and they finished with a fun version of The Mariner’s Revenge Song, a perfect song for the Pacific Northwest.  The Decemberists said this was their last show for awhile, so I hope you saw them when you could.  The weather got worse, not rain but lightning, during the set and got especially nasty for a little while before Wilco came out.  I thought there was a chance the storm would go right over us, but we were spared!

I had a dilemma all day, a few days actually, about what to do with the Wilco/Major Lazer conflict.  I didn’t want a repeat of the Sleigh Bells miss earlier in the week, but there was potential for Wilco to be amazing, and I certainly didn’t want to miss that.  So I did what I ended up thinking was near perfect, and watched the first few Wilco songs, busted over for one quick Deerhunter song (it was cool too, I think I missed something good there), and then saw the last 45 minutes of Major Lazer before returning to the floor for the end of Wilco and the Festival.

Major Lazer was crazy.  All that I had imagined and a little more.  I don’t love this style of music, but they have insane energy and the party up in the Banana Shack was undeniable. Thank goodness I saw most of this set, as it was FUN.  Lasers, crazy dancing, people having a blast and the dude on stage jumping from a ladder into the crowd (and other antics) made this set great!  I wouldn’t mind going to another Major Lazer party, that’s for sure. “I love it here in Washington! I don’t ever want to leave. Will someone let me stay in their basement!?!” he said.  A dance party with tons of chicks from the crowd up on stage and only the second collaboration I saw all weekend ended the set. Skrillex came out and they performed a demo that they have been working on (first time ever played) and the set ended with everyone in the crowd pumped!

After Lazer, the end of the Festival was near, and that was a bit sad.  I headed down to Wilco, ran back into my Calgary buddies which was awesome, and finished the set with just Calgary Phil and I being the last of our crew there.  The Wilco set was fun enough, it didn’t convert me into a fan like Modest Mouse did the night before, but the jams were cool and it seemed like a good way to close the show.  Phil and I walked back to the Campground, had one of the funniest conversations of my life along the way, and then drank some beers before officially calling Sasquatch quits.  The next morning came, camp was broken down, emails exchanged and goodbyes were said for all.

I’d like to personally thank Sasquatch! 2011 for being an epic blast and I hope next years lineup makes me want to go the whole three (or four?) days again.

 

Random Notes:

In some of the worst scheduling I have ever seen, Chromeo had the largest crowd all day on the Main Stage and got stuck with the 2:45-3:30 spot.  Once they left so did the crowd.  The floor was EMPTY for Guided by Voices who followed.

In lame joke of the weekend news: Jeff Tweedy, after egging the crowd on to throw as many glowsticks as possible at him (and I am paraphrasing): “You all suck! That’s probably why the Mariners are so bad too. Ohhh low blow, sorry.”

Sharon Jones is epic.

I heard the Skrillex set up in the Banana Shack was one of the best. Bummer to miss that. Also bummed to miss Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

I will see you again Sasquatch!!!!!!!

Sasquatch! Festival 2011 Preview – The Gorge Amphitheatre, George, WA

Sasquatch! Festival 2011 Preview

By thenaturalstoner

It’s hard to believe that out of over 100 bands performing at this years Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre, I have only seen two.  I go to a lot of concerts, and like a lot of these bands, so it’s really freaking odd to me that I have only seen the Old 97’s (at an old Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, approx. 10 years ago) and Sharon Jones, although I didn’t see her with the Dap-Kings, only as a backup performer to Phish at their legendary Festival 8.  With that said there are some amazing acts this year, and as always, Sasquatch! is plum full of up and coming bands we will all love in 2-3 years.  This preview will look at my favorite acts I am looking forward to, and why.  There are lots of different reasons that these bands appear on this list, and after the Festival I am sure some of my favorite sets from the event won’t be any of these listed, but these are the top bands I am most looking forward to seeing perform live (ALL for the first time!).

 


10. Flogging Molly: While “celtic punk rock” isn’t my favorite genre, it certainly jumps up big on the list after a few cold beers.  So Sunday night’s Flogging Molly set on the Main Stage at the Gorge should be epic (so should The Flaming Lips and Modest Mouse to follow on the Main Stage-what a way to start the night!).

9. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings: As mentioned above, I have seen Sharon Jones once before, backing up Phish at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio. This will be a nice treat seeing her with her own band. Sharons throwback funk/soul sound gets me going every time and her voice is amazing.

8. The Decembrists: I will admit, an ex-girlfriend got me into this band. Usually the kiss of death, but I have always kind of liked their sound (their 2011 album The King is Dead is a lot of fun) and these guys will be great at the Gorge.

7. Chromeo: When the initial Sasquatch! lineup was announced, I asked concertconfessions own Rev. Justito to give me some names of bands to check out that I might not be familiar with. I’m pretty sure Chromeo was on his list because they made it onto my iPod, but after a couple listens it really wasn’t for me. However, I decided to give their recent Coachella Festival webcast a chance, and after watching the ENTIRE set, this Prince-meets-Devo funky pop band is something I am really excited about seeing. I can only imagine the dance party that awaits.

 

6. Modest Mouse: The great Northwests own Modest Mouse, returning to Sasquatch! for a night for the ages.  Sunday nights headliner is a band that I like (not love), but maybe that will change as this will be my first Modest Mouse show.  I have heard their concerts can be hit or miss, especially these days, but I have to think the Sunday night magic of Sasquatch! will leave the Gorge Amphitheatre in awe.

5. Bassnectar: Dubstep, a genre I am a total noob about, is intriguing to me. And Bassnectar is one of the best blowing up right now.  After hearing about the legendary glow stick wars (that supposedly put my band Phish’s to shame) and seeing some YouTube clips, I have a sneaking suspicion that this late night set could be one of the best of the entire Festival.

4. Iron & Wine: Another ex-girlfriend introduction for me, but I thank her greatly for it.  Iron & Wine (traditionally a one man band, but I have heard he sometimes tours with a group) is one of my favorite mellow “rock” acts.  The Main State of the Gorge will be a perfect setting for a Saturday night dusk time set and the new album is super, so the tunes should be great.

3. J. Mascis: The front man for legendary alternative band Dinosaur Jr. will be at Sasquatch! performing a solo set.  J.’s past solo performances are great and his latest all-acoustic album “Several Shades of Why” is fantastic.  This will be a small side stage act not to be missed!  I think I just pee’d my pants a little thinking about it.

2. The Flaming Lips: Not sure how I have not seen this band before, but am SUPER excited for this set.  The Lips will be performing their 1999 epic “The Soft Bulletin” in its entirety, plus other additional songs to follow.  I’ve been told a Flaming Lips show can be life changing, so Sunday May 29th may be my last “normal” day as thenaturalstoner.

1. Foo Fighters: The first band announced for this years Festival is the one I am looking forward to the most.  Nirvana was always my favorite band growing up, and to have the opportunity to see Dave Grohl and Pat Smear play together will rock my mind and soul.  Nirvana Bassist Krist Novoselic performed on the Foos new album “Wasting Light” (as did Huskur Du’s own Bob Mould, also at the Sasquatch! Fest), so who knows, maybe a Nirvana reunion will rock Central Washington in May.  Regardless, this is one set I have been looking forward to for months on end.  I had the chance to see the Foos only one other time, also at the Gorge with Kool Keith and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and some mishaps along the way caused me to miss the show.  That will NOT happen this time.

 

 

Just missing the cut: Death Cab for Cutie, Death From Above 1979, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Washington state hip-hop represent!), Bob Mould, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Trailer Park Boys, Reggie Watts, Wilco.

Things I am pissed about:  J. Mascis and Chromeo only scheduled for 45 minutes; The Decemberists, Iron and Wine and Bassnectar only scheduled for an hour; Macklemore & Ryan Lewis/Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings scheduling conflict.

So that’s my list.  The best part about Festivals, especially 4 day long ones, is that your list will differ greatly from mine.  I can’t wait to check these bands out (plus 90 others!) and report back on who was amazing and who failed to live up to expectations.  George, Washington, here we come!!!

For those who can’t make it – NPR will be broadcasting live from the festival all weekend long.

The 2010 Outside Lands Music Festival – Initial Artist Announcement

Every year I tell myself I shall travel back to the city of my birth and enjoy the Outside Lands Music Festival.  The first two years, I had selfish friends decided they would use that weekend to get married (heck, as an ordained minister, I actually married our webmaster during the inaugural year).  This year, I will sadly miss out as I will be in the Bay Area the week before for three nights of Phish at the Greek.  But just because I can’t make it, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out this amazing event.  Check out the lineup video right here:
