iClips.net to Stream Umphrey's McGee's 'UM Bowl II'

Two of Chicago’s favorite homegrown bands perform in their hometown this first weekend of April. Performing at the Double Door in Chicago tonight, Friday, April 1, Lubriphonic fuses the roots of rock and blues soul with explosive in-your-face delivery and sensuous upbeat funk music. On Saturday, April 2, the highly anticipated hometown show of Chicago’s fusion pioneers Umphrey’s McGee culminates with their sold out UM Bowl II at the Park West, which will stream online video of the nearly 5 hour performance via iClips.net.

The advance purchase discount for this musical marathon ends Saturday, April 2 at 3 PM CDT and the day of show pricing for the entire UM Bowl will jump to $11.99. With the UM Bowl purchase, fans also receive the previously unreleased Umphrey's McGee Saturday Set from Summer Camp Festival 2010.

Prior to the online video stream of the UM Bowl II, Lubriphonic’s Friday 4/1 show will begin streaming on iClips.net at 5:45 PM CDT Saturday, April 2.  Their live sound is full of precision orchestrations made up of blazing guitars, tight three piece horn lines, soulful songwriting, bluesy vocals and the habit to cut the funk loose. Lubriphonic also announces their spring tour featuring them headlining some Widespread Panic after parties, supporting WSP April 15 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Pelham, AL, as well as packed tour of the Midwest and Southeast before heading into summer festival season including gigs at Wakarusa, Summer Camp and many more. In addition to the no cost video stream of Friday’s show , interested fans of music are invited to try the veritable taster spoon of Lubriphonic music by downloading a free sampler including over an hour of live and studio Lube.

The best description of the Lubriphonic’s upbeat sound comes from some members of the media:

“Combine the best elements of old-school funk and edgy rock and roll, throw in some soulful R&B, and you end up with Lubriphonic, one of the most happening bands out there today... Lubriphonic draws from strong, eclectic influences, yet is cutting-edge original” -- Hittin' The Note

“This old-school Chicago-based rocking funk and soul band kicks up the dust with a crackling three-piece horn section and enough energy to blow the fuses at this intimate venue. It’s terrific originals sound like ‘70s covers and when it does dig down for an oldie, as on Curtis Mayfield’s classic ‘If There’s a Hell Below (We’re All Gonna Go),’ it’s an all-stops-pulled blast.”– Creative Loafing Atlanta

DEAD CENTER at THE BROOKLYN BOWL

The Jam Stampede will perform at their ongoing Dead Center event at Brooklyn Bowl on January 25, 2011.  Michael Falzarano (New Riders, Hot Tuna) and Barry Mitterhoff (Hot Tuna) will join us again after having such a good time last August at the very well received Jerry Garcia Retrospective.

With the help of our good friends Michael and Barry we will again revisit some of the Grateful Dead lore. On this date January 25, 1971, 40 years ago, a very propitious year for the Dead, The NRPS and the Grateful Dead performed at the Seattle Center, Seattle Wash. This was a very common occurrence back at that time and sadly short lived.

In homage to that time and place, Jam Stampede will again mine the Grateful Dead and New Riders catalogue for yet another great Dead Center Show at the Brooklyn Bowl.

THE 40th ANNIVERSARY of the Grateful Dead at HARPUR COLLEGE

1970's intense. T.C. leaves the band in late January. The band's 'busted down on Bourbon Street' on January 31st. In March they discover their manager, Mickey Hart's father Lenny, has been stealing them blind (they're already hugely in debt to the record company). Only the music is sane; they enter the studio in March and in three weeks record Workingman's Dead, fulfilling Garcia and Hunter's work of the past year. It comes out in June. They add a regular opening act, the New Riders of the Purple Sage (Garcia plays pedal steel in it), and their shows stretch ever longer. Late that month they cross Canada on the Festival Express. In September they have some spare time, and go back into the studio, producing another gem, American Beauty. In the fall they begin a long series of college concerts that will establish them (along with the two albums) in a long-term way as a touring band.

“Finally I have the quality I’ve been looking for on this famous date. There are so many outrageous things that stand out on this date, that I hesitate to list them all. There are a few places where the quality “garbles” of fades in & out, during the “Anthem” & “Viola Lee Blues”, but outside of this everything is excellent. In “Cold Rain & Snow”, Garcia tunes up several times & really gets into singing with gusto, like I’ve never heard this tune. There is a really nice riff from “Dark Star” that they do during the end of “Dancing in the Streets”. During the Acoustic Set, there is one point where Garcia & Weir lecture the noisy audience about being a more “respectable audience.”
