Last Week’s Sauce: May 10th – 16th

More than half of this week’s selections come from the first Hangout Beach, Music, and Arts Festival in Gulf Shores, AL. The reviews coming in from those in attendance have been overwhelmingly positive and many more had the luxury of watching many of the headliners live, or almost live, via a free iClips webcast. Beyond the jambands featured from Hangout Fest, we round out our selections with two very different piano-playing-frontmen.

And we continue to take all the selected tracks, normalize them, create some simple fades and put it into one easy to download MP3 for you.

Artist & Title: Ben Folds – Annie Waits, My Philosophy, Such Great Heights
Date & Venue: 2010-05-16 The Warfield – San Francisco, CA
Taper & Show Download: star curtain

Picking three tunes from the Ben Folds concert was easy, well the categories were easy anyway. One solo tune, one Ben Folds Five tune, and one cover of The Postal Service. This is very crisp sounding tape, fans of his should definitely add this show to their collection. Ben Folds next performs July 17th with the Utah Symphony as part of the Deer Valley Music Festival.


From the same show, Ben riffs on Heaven On Their Minds from the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar

B List: 8 Reasons 12/30/2009 Was a Classic

Now that we’ve all had time to properly digest Phish’s 2009 and allow our respective iPods to sift through the weeds, it’s fair to put some things in the broader context. One thing that keeps coming up is whether anything from 2009 deserves consideration as a legendary Phish show?

While there are certainly heaps of people with strong feelings on both sides of this debate, I think the December 30, 2009 show deserves inclusion, at least to round out say a Top 50 all-time shows list. So, here is a defense of the rationale. All I ask is before you string me up from the rafters is that you read the list.

8) Like a Broken Record – Any Phish dork worth their weight in notepads knew that as the New Years run wound down, Phish narrowly approached their own record for the most unique songs played in a single year – which previously sat at a Wilt Chamberlain-esque 240. When the band stormed out of the gates with a first set that included a debut of Dixie Cannonball, a new song in Gone and a massive helping of 2009 first-timers (What’s the Use, Rocky Top, Corrina and Tela), it became clear they wouldn’t even need New Year’s Eve to eclipse the record. Like many holiday runs past, the night preceding New Years Eve took home top honors over the actual holiday, and the record got shattered.

7) A Lullaby the Breezes Whisper – Phish fans have short memories when it comes to craving for the band to play a song that’s been shelved for an extended period of time. Hence, the buzz for Tela has probably waned somewhat now that it’s been played, but leading up to the Miami show; this was without question the song everybody wanted to hear. A dust off of this magnitude usually runs the risk of some flubs, but the band tackled this intricate number with relative ease and a whole lot of excitement.

Dweezil Zappa – The Next Phase of Zappa Plays Zappa

If you’ve ever heard more than a few notes of Zappa Plays Zappa, you know that the band transcends the “tribute band” label. More akin to an orchestral performance of selected works than an imitation of the Frank Zappa sound and look, the band have carved out a comfortable space in the live music world, performing for Zappa-starved fanatics and curious newcomers all over the world.

Buzzcocks: The Ottobar, Baltimore, MD 5/12/10

Though the Buzzcocks have released more recent material, two albums in the last decade even, this tour was for their first two releases from way back in 1978 which were re-issued by Mute Records earlier this year and played in their entirety. That certainly sets up the potential for a show that’s more about the past than the present, but the band’s performance said otherwise.
