iClips.net to Stream Sold-Out Widespread Panic Red Rocks shows

For music fans all over the country, it wouldn’t quite be summer without a run of Widespread Panic shows at Colorado’s breathtaking Red Rocks Amphitheatre. For the band’s 2011 visit – happening June 24-25-26 - iClips.net will be onsite documenting the sold out run. “Widespread Panic: Live From Red Rocks” webcast, available at iClips.net and LiveWidespreadPanic.com, will offer full performance real-time video streaming, bringing three nights of epic music directly into people’s homes.

Performances can be purchased separately or as a 3-night package, including a limited number of 3-night packages with an exclusive event poster signed by the band. Visit WidespreadPanic.com to purchase webcasts and for more information.

“This being the 25th anniversary of Widespread Panic, we felt it appropriate to simulcast the Red Rocks shows because they have been such a huge part of our 25 years of touring,” says Buck Williams, Widespread Panic’s co-manager. iClips.net CEO and Founder Nate Parienti adds, “During a Widespread Panic show at Red Rocks, the energy is palpable. We’re thrilled to capture it on video and try and bring as much of the experience as possible to the folks at home who aren't able to be there in person.”

Old 97's @ Boulder Theater | 1/27/11

Since the Old 97's roared out of Dallas more than fifteen years ago, they have blazed a trail through alt-country and power-pop, led by the piercingly observant lyrics of lead singer Rhett Miller. Each new Old 97's record is hotly anticipated, and rightfully so: "Blame It On Gravity," from 2008, contained some of the band's most deeply felt and passionately played songs. But in a career full of high-water marks, "The Grand Theatre Volume 1″ is perhaps the most ambitious and accomplished set of recordings yet.

The album, the band's eighth, began to come together last year, when Miller was on a solo tour of Europe with Steve Earle. "When I started in this band, I wrote on the road constantly," Miller says. "But I was 23 then, so everything was new to me. Over the years, those strange and wonderful things have begun to feel more commonplace. On the familiar highways, in familiar hotels, it's pretty easy to turn into a zombie. But on this tour, I was in England and Ireland and Scandinavia, places where I haven't spent very much time in, and because of that things seemed somehow fresh. I felt recharged."

The result was a set of songs rooted in specific locations. "The title track, which I wrote in Leeds, is like a series of postcards that try to capture the moment of falling in love; it begins in the Grand Theatre, which is a historic venue there, on the elevator. There's another song, "Every Night Is Friday Night (Without You)," that I wrote, or at least started to write, while I was walking around in Soho. And a song like "The Dance Class" wouldn't have happened if I wasn't in Birmingham, trapped in a hotel, looking out at streets that were bleak and gray except for a dance studio across the way. I imagined an agoraphobic who sees a beautiful girl in that studio and fantasizes about being freed by her." Miller's portraits of love and loneliness are paired with some of the sharpest music the band has ever produced, from the propulsive celebration of "Every Night Is Friday Night (Without You)" to the manic (and almost panicked) energy of "The Dance Class."
