Watch Florence + The Machine on Jimmy Fallon

Florence and the Machine stopped by Jimmy Fallon last night. The band  played two songs. One called “Spectrum (Say My Name)” with  full orchestra included. Then  Florence Welch(minus the machine) joined Jimmy for a song called  “Balls In Your Mouth”, it’s a BP “protest song”. Watch the videos for both performances below.

Corona Capital Music Festival 2012 Lineup Released: Black Keys, MMJ, New Order Among Big Names

Corona Capital Music Festival 2012 Lineup Released

 

The reasons to visit Mexico once in your life are endless. Those of us who have actually have  Autumn and Winter (we speak not of Reverend Justito, who lives in a place that doesn’t know what weather is), would love to escape it. Why not take a weekend and spend a few Peso’s on some cheap blow and  easily accessible sedatives while spending your evenings taking body shots of tequila off sexy senorita’s, chasing it with Dos Equis alongside the Most Interesting Man In The World. Yes, I’m thirsty my friends.

All kidding (or what we’ll call kidding to save face) aside, The Corona Capital Music Festival can be added to the list of reasons to visit. You can add the likes of  The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Florence And the Machine will all be in Mexico City October 13th and 14th, along with a returning New Order, James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) and Sleigh Bells mixed in there as well. Hell, even the Wallflowers are on the bill.

Pearl Jam And The Foo Fighters Headline Yet Another Festival

Pearl Jam And The Foo Fighters Headline YET Another Festival

So, in a week where “Bands Jay Porks Hates” is the Lunchtime Jam of the Day theme it’s just fitting that a festival with this line up would be announced.

There are so many things I’d rather be doing right now then reporting on yet another festival headlined by Pearl Jam and The Foo Fighters. Cutting myself, putting my mouth on the exhaust of a parked car and voting Republican top the list, but you know what they say you can’t bake bread without yeast right? Well, here’s a yeast infection for you.

Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters will headline the newly revived “Music Midtown” Festival in Atlanta this September 21st and 22nd. Other guests will be “Girl Talk” (Wow, Girl Talk is playing a Festival set?!? I’m so shocked),The Avett Brothers, Florence and the Machine,T.I. Ludacris, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, O’Brother and LP.

All the ticketing details are on at the festivals official website at MusicMidtown.Com

Florence and the Machine Live at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine has certainly enjoyed a whirlwind of success in her early career. Florence gained quick recognition on the 2008 festival circuit from fans and critics alike, even catching the BBC’s eye at SXSW, consequently landing a spot BBC Introducing in September 2008. Florence was even nominated for the 2009 Mercury Music Prize, an honorary award for new UK artists, before the release of her debut album Lungs. As a fan, I too was just as eager to praise her name, “Dare I say, watch out Tori Amos, I believe Florence and the Machine is bound to take your throne…” @dotshiva 11Jun2009

On April 18, 2010 I got my first chance to see Florence and the Machine live at Coachella, however due to the massive crowd with the same idea and me being vertically challenged, I never actually saw her. Needless to say, when I found out she would stop in Las Vegas between her 2012 Coachella shows, I knew this was my best chance to finally be satisfied. Florence’s popularity again won, completely selling out the show weeks in advance. Bless my lucky stars, somehow the heavens aligned and granted my wish to see Florence and the Machine.

Entering the stage just as angelically as I could have imagined, draped in a heavy, almost royal robe, Florence slowly broke the silence with her radiating voice. As she sang, Florence moved with such emotion and energy, it was as if she was singing and acting out each verse to the gods watching above us. During What the Water Gave Me, she threw off her dark cape to reveal a stunning silver sequined gown that shimmered gold in the light.

Florence continued through her incredible performance standing tall and as brilliant as an Emmy. Backed by an equally talented backup singer, harp player, and five other band members, the music perfectly reflected her voice’s grace and intensity. The setlist and performance of songs was like floating on ocean waves; peaceful, beautiful, mixed with both ferocity and a soothing calm.

Keeping a lighthearted attitude alive after performing emotional songs was the key to her hold on the audience. Before playing Rabbit Heart, Florence encouraged all men to raise it up, “Put your girl on your shoulders and raise her up!” She also encouraged everyone to start jumping in sync to start Dog Days Are Over. Whether she got the crowd going or held us hypnotized in her voice, Florence and the Machine knocked her audience dead with exquisitely poetic song and dance.

Near the last song, Florence gazed over the audience to view the neon glow of the Las Vegas strip beyond and exclaimed, “This is definitely the most beautiful place we’ve ever played!” She laughed and continued, “Vegas is the best place for a nervous breakdown… it’s amazing; so beautiful… You should go there!” I can only hope this means she will be back sooner rather than later. Florence and the Machine truly put on a world class performance that those in attendance will not soon forget.

VIDEO coming soon!
