iClips to Live Stream STS9 from Red Rocks

The time of year has come again for STS9’s annual stop at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Since their first performance in 2003, the band has made Red Rocks a home away from home having played the venue over 10 times now with a total supporting cast of nearly 30 cutting edge acts in their prime sharing the stage with them through the years. In that time, they’ve been joined at Red Rocks by a plethora of music legends from Thievery Corporation, Jurassic 5, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Talib Kweli, The Glitch Mob, Ghostland Observatory and more. Every show at Red Rocks with STS9 is an event, full of surprises, musically and visually.

This year sees the band kicking off their Fall Tour in classic style at Red Rocks Amphitheater on September 9th & 10th with a great line-up including Snoop Dogg, Up Until Now, Savoy and LTJ Bukem. This year's opening acts will continue the tradition of diversifying the lineup by bringing in Hip-Hop legend Snoop Dogg and Drum n’ Bass legend LTJ Bukem to anchor the nights.

iClips is extremely excited to be there to bring you all the action once again LIVE, and in HD, from Red Rocks. Stay tuned for more details coming soon including price and show times.

The Avett Brothers Live from Red Rocks, This Saturday on iClips.net

The Avett Brothers’ sold-out show, taking place on July 9th from Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, produced by AEG LIVE Rocky Mountains, will be available for live webstream on a pay-per-view basis at iClips.net. The full performance will also be delivered in real-time to the world's largest HDTV screen at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, bringing the Avett Brothers’ amazing local fan base the opportunity to view the historical show from Red Rocks.

The Charlotte Motor Speedway, home to the massive 80’ x 200’ Panasonic HDTV, will host Avett Brothers fans on the evening of July 9th, supplying concert-grade speakers to turn the infield area in front of the video board into a one-of-a-kind concert venue. Tickets for the July 9th simulcast are on sale now and can be purchased at the speedway ticket office or by calling 1-800-455-FANS (3267).

“The speedway has been a hometown landmark for us our whole lives and we're proud to have an opportunity for our music to echo through that historical infield,” said Seth Avett. “For us, performing at Red Rocks and airing live in Concord is about the most ideal situation for being in two amazing places at once.”

The Avetts’ popularity skyrocketed on the heels on their major label debut, the 2009 album “I and Love and You.” Recently, the band has become accustomed to performing sold out concerts and in February they performed at the 53rd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles alongside Bob Dylan. “We are so fortunate to travel and play the many places we do,” stated Scott Avett.

In addition to delivering the famed Avett Brothers, the online broadcast will also offer the full performance of the evening’s opening act, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. The performances for all the artists will be made available for fans to purchase at iclips.net.

The Avett Brothers front men, Scott and Seth Avett, who grew up on their father’s farm in Concord, quickly grew their fan base throughout the region with memorable energetic shows, which has become the band’s trademark.

The Avetts’ popularity skyrocketed on the heels on their major label debut, the 2009 album “I and Love and You.” Recently, the band has become accustomed to performing sold out concerts and in February they performed at the 53rd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles alongside Bob Dylan.

“We are so fortunate to travel and play the many places we do,” said Scott Avett. “To have an opportunity to share that with our supportive home town in a setting where great men like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and David Pearson competed adds to the sense of pride that we feel to be a part of the Charlotte community and this event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.”

“This is going to be an unbelievable event,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “This is something that would have never been possible without the world’s largest HD video board. But, now we’re going to simulcast a live sold out show from one of the most famous concert venues in the world, featuring our home-town boys, the Avett Brothers, to their loyal fan following here in Charlotte. It’s going to be awesome!”

This Desert Rocks - Desert Rocks Music Festival

Besides a plethora of giant fiddle contests, I really have no festival experience to speak of. (Don’t get me wrong, fiddle participants can booze, substance-abuse, and play the shit out of acoustic instruments till the sun rises) But that's a different story.  Let's get back to Desert Rocks, and how I am so fulfilled with my first festival journey! It was a weekend of love and acceptance, filled with the young, the transient, the locals, and the Coloradoans (not all of them, but a lot).

Furthur Confirms 3 Nights @ Red Rocks

Slightly Stoopid Announces Second Leg of Seedless Summer Tour

Today Slightly Stoopid announce the second leg of their Seedless Summer 2011 Tour, including shows at Governors Island (New York), Masquerade Music Park (Atlanta), Charter One Pavilion (Chicago) and many points in between. Pre-sale is happening now at www.slightlystoopid.com, with tickets available to the general public beginning Friday, May 20.

The Seedless Summer 2011 Tour, which unveiled the first leg of dates last week, brings Slightly Stoopid’s California-born music to sheds around the country this summer with Rebelution and Shwayze & Cisco Adler also on the bill.

Look for Seedless Summer 2011 Tour to make 25 stops in all, including some of the country’s best outdoor venues; Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA, and Cricket Amphitheater in their hometown of San Diego, CA. As The San Diego Union-Tribune recently reported, “Headlining Cricket for the third year in a row is a coup for the Ocean Beach-based group -- a feat unmatched by blink-182, Jason Mraz, Jewel, P.O.D. or any other nationally prominent San Diego act, past or present.” The complete list of Slightly Stoopid’s Seedless Summer 2011 Tour dates in included below.

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. And as Amped Up Magazine points out, it’s for good reason,

“Slightly Stoopid have perfected one of the rarest and most valuable skills a band can develop: the art of the stealth groove.” Always a festival favorite, Slightly Stoopid has performed at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Outside Lands, Milwaukee Summerfest, Wakarusa, and many others. With their two most recent albums both debuting on Billboard and iTunes charts, the band has sold over 750,000 albums and now releases all material on Doughty and McDonald’s own record label, Stoopid Records.

Umphrey's McGee Announces 2011 Summer Plan

Umphrey’s McGee kicks-off their 2011 Summer Tour on May 27 with three nights at Summercamp in Chillicothe, IL, where the band will debut - debut Huey Lewis and the Rumors, a new collaboration featuring Umphrey's McGee, a full horn section, and of course, the legendary Huey Lewis. Additional festival engagements include Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, All Good and others. Also on the schedule, a triumphant return to Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 3 for Red Rocks And Blue II featuring support by the New Mastersounds and Easy Star Allstars, and an intimate show the Boulder Theater the following day. Visit www.umphreys.com for tickets and show details. The complete list of summer tour dates is included below.

On April 2, 2011, at Park West in Chicago, Umphrey’s McGee hosted the second annual UMBowl, a first of its kind interactive concert where fans call the plays over the course of four musical “quarters.” The event, which sold out in just minutes, further established the band as leaders in the fields of band/fan interaction and technology. Billboard Magazine confirms the band’s vision, saying: “Umphrey’s McGee has become an unlikely role model for a music industry still struggling with the conversion to digital distribution amid rampant piracy.” For more on this ground-breaking event check out the Mashable feature here: mashable.com.

My Morning Jacket Share Title Track from New Album Circuital

Nearly three years since their last release, My Morning Jacket are now on the cusp of releasing the eagerly awaited new album, Circuital (ATO Records, May 31st).  The band has been gearing it all up by releasing songs from each of their five Terminal 5 shows this past October.  Today, My Morning Jacket are giving us a taste of the new album by sharing the title track and revealing it's enigmatic cover art.

Click HERE to download the song "Circuital" from the band's website.  The site is also now offering pre-orders for the album, and a beautiful limited edition deluxe package that includes an exclusive 30 minute documentary dvd, high quality lithograph portrait taken by Danny Clinch and many other goodies.  Ten deluxe versions will come with a 'Golden Ticket" entitling the bearer to receive an original signed print by the band and Clinch.

Like the album as a whole, "Circuital" was laid down almost entirely live as the honest spirit and human spontaneity are felt throughout the listening experience.  The song Circuital, while a seven minute epic, is but a taste of what to expect – the collection of songs is truly eclectic and entrancing from beginning to end.
