Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Fox Theater | St Patty's Day | Review

F.U....N.K. But seriously, funk. It was the theme of late night at The Fox Theatre, Monday, March 17th. Coming all the way from Baltimore, Maryland, we had the honor of spending a night with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong on their twenty-five day tour, one of the funkiest, psychedelic, up and coming jam bands coming through this town.

Grateful Web Interview w/ Pigeons Playing Ping Pong's Greg Ormont

Before and after the Pigeons Playing Ping Pong show on St Patrick’s Day, I had the opportunity to chat with the band's front man, Greg Ormont. In the past couple years, he and his three other band members have been touring extensively, playing spectacular shows, and have even founded their own festival, Domefest.

Hundred Visions @ SXSW | Review

Hundred Visions will be your next search on Spotify if you’re into jam bands.  Assuming you’re reading this on The Grateful Web, you are.  I saw them at my first official showcase of SXSW, at one of Austin’s best under-the-radar music venues, Hotel Vegas.

Polica @ SXSW | Review

If you only saw one show at SXSW, I hope it was Polica.  If you didn’t see them, I hope you’re listening to them in your cubicle right now.  Although, to be fair, their recordings don’t do them justice.  The band’s live performances are like breathing life and reality into the abstract.  If bands were pieces of art they’d be a Picasso masterpiece.

Railroad Earth | The Fillmore | San Fran | 3/15/14 | Review/Photos

Just as the full moon is infiltrating its way into the Bay Area, casting an illuminating white light over the Fillmore...Peeps await for the epic improvisational elements that seem to have a ripple effect from an  eclectic group who derived their name from Jack Kerouac's short story, "October In The Rain".

Everyone Orchestra | Fox Theater | 3/22/14

Most folks going out to see live music generally seek a familiar favorite band, or at the very least a certain style or genre implied. Rarely can an act draw interest based on anything without these qualities. Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra is the exception. Butler is a fantastic multi-instrumentalist (primarily a drummer) who decided to abolish all of the above qualifiers of what constitutes a traditional band.

Colorado-Based Taarka Embarks on West Coast Spring Tour

Though they characterize their sound as gypsy jazz and titled their latest album Adventures in Vagabondia, David and Enion Pelta-Tiller, the husband-and-wife duo fronting acoustic band Taarka, weren’t planning on becoming full-fledged nomads. Fate forced their hand, however, when they lost their home to Colorado’s devastating fall floods. Undaunted, they spent the winter in Virginia planning a two-month spring run through Colorado, California and Oregon.

London Grammar @ SXSW | Review

Considering what they’ve done, it’s hard to believe London Grammar released their first album If You Wait a mere six months ago.  It featured their already-popular EP Metal & Dust from earlier in the year.  Immediately, they were on the radar, hitting the top of the charts in UK and Australia.  One more example, last week they opened for Coldplay.  Yes, really.  It sounds beyond ludicrous that they have already had so m

California Roots Music And Arts Festival Announces 2014 Lineup

The 5th annual California Roots Music and Arts Festival will take place at the historic Monterey County Fairgrounds from May 23-25, 2014.  This year’s impressive lineup combines the best talent from the progressive US Reggae scene with SOJA, Rebelution, 311, and Pepper with Jamaican favorites including Steel Pulse, Ziggy Marley, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, and many more.

JFJO & Mike Dillon | Shine | Boulder, CO | 3/19/14 | Review

Sometimes it’s cool to catch a concert in Boulder that isn’t at Boulder or Fox Theatres. We love both of those venues, but there are so many lesser-appreciated venue spaces attached to bars and restaurants primarily in the downtown area. I include Mountain Sun Brewery Restaurant & Pub, Laughing Goat Coffeehouse, Connor O’Neil’s Irish Pub, and Lazy Dog Saloon all in this category.
