Slightly Stoopid Announces Spring Tour Dates

Slightly Stoopid is on tour this spring with dates on both coasts and more than a few stops in between. In addition to headlining gigs at clubs and amphitheaters across the country, Slightly Stoopid will also play a number of high-profile spring festivals including The Hangout Music Festival on May 20 in Gulf Shores, AL; and Hookahville in Thornville, OH on May 29.

First up though, the band will host their annual 4/20 show in their home state of California. Set to take place on Wednesday April 20, 2011 at Los Angeles’ legendary Greek Theatre, Slightly Stoopid’s “420 At The Greek” show will help kick-off the Greek’s 80th anniversary celebration season. Joining Slightly Stoopid for this historic event will be none other than the legendary original Bad Brains and Jamaican dancehall icon Barrington Levy.

When not on the road, Slightly Stoopid has been hunkered down at the band’s headquarters in San Diego, hard at work on their seventh studio album. Just minutes from the surf and fully equipped with a half-pipe skate ramp, video game room and recording studio, it’s the perfect environment to spark the band’s creativity. Collaborating in the studio of late: G. Love, Cypress Hill, Don Carlos, Del the Funky Homosapien, Barrington Levy, Ian Neville, Collie Buddz and more. The album is expected late summer 2011.

Formed in 1995 in San Diego, CA’s Ocean Beach by childhood friends Miles Doughty (guitar, bass, vocals) and Kyle McDonald (guitar, bass, vocals), Slightly Stoopid has become one of the most influential and progressive improvisational musical outfits on the tour circuit. The band has sold over 750,000 albums and now releases all material on Doughty and McDonald’s own record label, Stoopid Records.

Big Head Todd and The Monsters have been busy – first celebrating the release of their new studio album, Rocksteady (July 20, 2010/Big Records), and now preparing to hit the road with some of blues music’s biggest legends in support of 100 Years of Robert Johnson (March 1, 2011 - Ryko/Big Records), a stirring new tribute album featuring 10 potent interpretations of some of the most vital and durable music of the past century.

Big Head Blues Club features in addition to the Colorado-based quartet—guitarist and vocalist Todd Park Mohr, bassist Rob Squires, drummer Brian Nevin and keyboardist Jeremy Lawton—special guests, blues legends B.B. King, Hubert Sumlin, Honeyboy Edwards and Charlie Musselwhite, as well as keepers of the blues flame Ruthie Foster, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm.

Recorded at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, and produced by Grammy award winning blues producer Chris Goldsmith (Blind Boys of Alabama), 100 Years of Robert Johnson will be released in early 2011, and supported by a national tour (“Blues at the Crossroads: The Robert Johnson Centennial Concerts”) featuring many of the participants in the sessions. A complete list of the tour dates is included below.

Conspirator Announces Important Venue Changes

On the heels of a successful northeast tour that included a sold out show in Syracuse, NY, Conspirator has announced that five scheduled performances have newly updated venue information, in addition to confirming drummers and support acts.

Friday 2/5 in Los Angeles has been moved to the HOUSE OF BLUES SUNSET STRIP. Wednesday 2/9 in Portland has been moved to the ROSELAND THEATRE. Saturday 2/12 has moved from Oakland to across the bay at THE INDEPENDENT in San Francisco. Efforts are being made to schedule a performance in Seattle, WA, and the band plans to issue updates as soon as possible.

Saturday 2/19 in Albany is being rescheduled for a later date. Instead, Conspirator will be returning to THE STONE PONY in Asbury Park, NJ. On Saturday 2/26, instead of Urbana, Conspirator will be playing THE BLUEBIRD in Bloomington, IN.

All of the West Coast shows will feature Lane Shaw on drums, and Break Science featuring Adam Deitch opening. Piper will also be DJ'ing for both Montana shows.

February 16th through 20th will feature Darren Shearer of The New Deal on drums. February 24th through March 3rd will feature Mike Greenfield from Lotus on drums. Darren will again join us for the final two shows in NYC and Stroudsburg on March 4th and 5th.

The New Deal will be co-headlining February 24th in Detroit, and February 25th in Chicago.

While Disco Biscuits’ staples Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner have occasionally invited other musicians to their live shows, the “new Conspirator,” featuring Chris Michetti and a rotating cast of first-class drummers, has proven to be a new, “full band” sound emerging not only from the group’s mentality, but by featuring a solidified, returning, 4-piece lineup. In a recent band statement, Conspirator confirmed that they have been working to restructure their signature tracks in Ableton in order to create improvisational jams during live performances.

With a firmly set 4-piece band, fans can expect performances featuring increased live improv and a refreshing musical flow, peppered with some surprises. Inspired by new collaborations and the combined musical histories of the performers, Conspirator is set to get the scene talking in 2011.

“The energy coming off of the December Conspirator shows with Michetti was very exciting for Aron and I, and the fans have responded really well,” said Brownstein. “We knew right away we had to take this across the country. There are really exciting places a full band, this full band, can take the classic Conspirator sound. It’s a whole new show each night.”

Known throughout the live music world for high energy, creative guitar shredding with his band RAQ, Chris Michetti became much more familiar to Disco Biscuits fans throughout 2010 when he periodically accompanied the band on stage at places like Red Rocks, Camp Bisco, and on a number of Spring Tour performances. Michetti has been touring and creating music with Conspirator since late 2010, and anyone who has caught the early phases of the “new Conspirator” will undeniably be psyched for round two and beyond.

The current list of confirmed Conspirator dates is as follows:

FRIDAY 2/4/11 – Mystic Theatre, Petaluma, CA

SATURDAY 2/5/11 – House of Blues, West Hollywood, CA w/ Break Science

BOOMBOX CONTINUES ‘DOWNRIVERELECTRIC’ TOUR IN COLORADO

After a completely sold out Colorado tour in early 2010 with return trips this past summer to play the Mile High Music Festival and to close out the Westword Music Showcase, BoomBox returns for 7 dates with Sub Swara and their genre-bending bass music from Brooklyn, NY. These dates are sure to sell out quickly and all tickets are on sale now.

You can currently catch BoomBox on the East Coast leg of their ‘downriverelectric’ tour with stops in the mid-west before they make it to Colorado.

BoomBox, born out of legendary Muscle Shoals, AL features Producer/Engineer/DJ/Drummer Russ Randolph and Producer/DJ/Vocalist/Guitarist Zion Rock Godchaux. This pair of dynamic artists uses their rich musical history, inspiring vision and pop culture influences to deliver a style of music distinctly different from anything heard in the live music scene today. Their signature sound and high-energy shows bring live music to a new, elevated level.

BoomBox released their sophomore album, downriverelectric (available on iTunes) on June 30, 2010 using analog recording sessions and some of the same vintage gear as their Muscle Shoals predecessors. The album, with over 5000 units moved via their website in the first month, pays homage to the musical memoirs of Muscle Shoals’ past and to the rhythm of the Tennessee River, which has long inspired the group. From brand new cuts such as Dungeons and Watergun to live fan favorites Headchange and Mr. Boogie Man, the album deliberately weaves a variety of dance frenzy beats filled with catchy songwriting and soul shuttering low end.

Sub Swara creates, constructs, produces and plays genre-bending bass music that parallels the diversity of their hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Consisting of Dhruva Ganesan and Dave Sharma, Sub Swara’s musical genome brings together a wide assortment of DNA – from dub to hip-hop, dancehall to punk rock, and all the global sounds in between.

Two Fresh Announces 2011 'Air Mail' Tour

Having recently closed a blockbuster holiday tour, which culminated with a New Year’s Eve dance party in Dallas, TX that saw 5k+ attend in support of the rapidly growing duo, Two Fresh is excited to announce the Air Mail Tour – a tour that will see the group hit the road with exciting, top notch support acts in anticipation of their forthcoming, full length album Air Mail. A full date list appears below. Ticketing and more information for all shows is available here.

Two Fresh kicks off the Air Mail Tour in the familiar stomping grounds of the Southeast and heads deep into the South, before winding up the East coast with parties in Knoxville, Athens, Tuscaloosa, Nashville, Austin, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, and Brooklyn. The tour will wrap with a Windy City rager in Chicago at the Bottom Lounge. Additional date announcements are expected from the trio, as the album release draws closer.

The tour will feature two of Brooklyn’s finest up and coming acts, Body Language and Mux Mool. Body Language’s original music was born from weekly dance party remixes crafted by Grant Wheeler and Matt Young, and are graced by the soul stylings of Ms. Angelica Bess. Mux Mool’s homespun electro hip-hop is the product of an introverted mind, an extroverted imagination, and a bottomless cultural appetite.

Having spent the last 18 months touring and working with different musicians and producers all over the country, Two Fresh is supporting the release of their forthcoming album, Air Mail, scheduled for release February 2011 on Elm & Oak Records/1320 Records. The ambitious and hungry group have planned 2 other releases for the later part of 2011. Having gained new, valuable perspective from recent tours and collaborations, Air Mail shows just how much the group has learned and evolved since their last release.

Two Fresh consists of an inseparable pair of twin producers, Sherwyn and Kendrick Nichols, who have been making beats and playing music together since they were fifteen years old. Now, about to be 22, the twins are armed with a forward-thinking perspective. As always, Two Fresh will tour with Colby Buckler on drums.
