Briefly: Live Nation Meets Extreme Makeover

Get ready for more makeshift, mediocre, misguided Fillmores: The Wall Street Journal today published a fine feature on the world’s largest concert promoter, and it appears the current business model just ain’t generating enough capital for Live Nation. The company will now attempt to morph into a record label, memorabilia dispenser and employer of seasonal workers. Let’s see whose identity they can steal for those new growth drivers.

Friday Mix Tape: Back To Shuffleupagus

Neddy and I are off to see Andrew Bird this evening while the rest of this city hits Terminal 5 for Ween’s two-nighter…so in order to get Neddy on my good side before the show, we’re gonna pimp out another one of his efforts.

I’m letting ye olde algorithm choose the mix again this week, with the one caveat being that I’ve restricted the choices to music released or recorded during 2007. So here’s a random — literally and figuratively — mix of this year’s infinite crop of tunes, including a couple live tracks of varying sound quality. There’s even two songs performed within a day of each other, interestingly enough. Enjoy.

Travis & Maximo Park: Moore Theatre, Seattle, WA 11/17/07

The recent show by Maximo Park and Travis at Seattle’s historic Moore Theatre was one to remember – high-energy, with great music and even better performances.  Opener Maximo Park, already big in Europe, is relatively unknown in the States, despite regular recent airplay on KEXP (90.3fm/KEXP.org) and other college stations; if the show they put on opening for Travis is any indication, they will soon be much better known.

Yoko Ono: Open Your Box ( The Remixes)

Open Your Box is a dance mix collection of quintessential Yoko Ono songs. The unique feature here is that the lyrics are understandable, and quite often full of pain, not your typical mind-numbing dance fare. Even though the songs didn't originate as dance music, Open Your Box does contain one essential ingredient in successful dance mixes: sex.
