Marco Benevento

On a cool and crisp evening in the heart of Delaware Water Gap, Sake-bar/brewery Sango Kura hosted a night of eclectic sounds and groovy beats.

Ten year anniversaries are certainly something to celebrate, and that is exactly what Joe Russo's Almost Dead did this past weekend with a four night run of shows in the New York City metro region. The performances were at the Brooklyn Bowl for the first night and the Capitol Theatre for the rest.

For fans of the jam, the end of the year represents some of the best opportunities for the live music experience. Whether it be Phish, The String Cheese Incident, Widespread Panic or any host of improvisational groups with their multi-night events, ticket holders salivate at the possibilities of seeing shows night after night as well as the crown jewel of ear and eye candy that is December 31st.

Dance rock, psych experimentalist Marco Benevento has announced March 2023 tour dates. The Woodstock, NY-based artist will head out for nine shows with stops in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest, including Undeground Arts in Philadelphia, Lincoln Hall in Chicago and Turf Club in St. Paul. The run kicks off on Friday, March 10 at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City. Benevento will be joined by his band, featuring bassist Karina Rykman and drummer Chris Corsico. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, Novemeber 18 at 10am local.

Montclair, NJ was the place to be last Saturday night, as Joe Russo's Almost Dead packed the historic Wellmont Theater to cap off another enjoyable three night run in this vibrant New York City suburb. The line to enter the show wrapped around the corner as dead heads of all ages eagerly awaited a mind melting performance by this talented quintet, and they were not disappointed.

Marco Benevento has announced a West Coast tour this coming October. The 11-date run supports the Woodstock, NY-based artist's new studio album, simply titled, Benevento, out now on Royal Potato Family. Benevento—joined by his band featuring bassist Karina Rykman and drummer Chris Corsico—will kick off the tour at Pappy Harriet's in Pioneertown, CA followed by five additional California shows, including stops at Casbah in San Diego, Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles and The Chapel in San Francisco.

Today, hallucinatory keyboard wizard Marco Benevento releases his latest studio effort, simply titled, Benevento (listen here) via his longstanding record label, Royal Potato Family. The 11-track collection presents 40-plus minutes of small-batch psychedelia, bubbled up from his home studio at the base of the Catskill Mountains in Woodstock, NY.  

Marco Benevento shares "Do You Want Some Magic," the fourth single from his upcoming album, simply titled, Benevento, due June 10 on Royal Potato Family. The hypnotic, five minute-plus krautrock homage is Benevento's reimagination of musical heroes like Can and Neu! It finds Benevento—revered as a virtuosic, genre-defying, experimental keyboardist—playing all of the parts.

The Sweetwater 420 Music Festival continued into day four, which had an equally impressive line up to the prior days. The weather continued to cooperate and made for a beautiful day at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Ga.
