Conspirator: Unlocked – Live From The Georgia Theatre

With the Disco Biscuits existing in something of a musical purgatory these days, playing only large scale events like Camp Bisco and Mayan Holidaze, founding members Marc Brownstein (bass) and Aron Magner (keys) are focused squarely on Conspirator, the side project they developed in 2004. Enfolding guitarist Chris Michetti into a permanent guitar slot and calling on a rotating cast of talented livetronica drummers, the band just released Unlocked: Live from the Georgia Theater on SCI Fidelity.

A Memory of Music: December 2010

Welcome to another installment of A Memory of Music. Each month, we show you a different side of the scene, so join us for a trip down memory lane for December 2010 and remember to click on the photos for full resolution images. For the month of December it ‘twas the season of Santa Clauses and holiday parties. From Brooklyn to San Francisco, and a few places in between, the bands dressed in their finest to spread the cheer.

December in Chicago is all about Umphrey’s McGee.  Several weeks before their 3-day New Years Eve run, guitarists Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger treated their fans to an intimate acoustic show with lots of guest sit-ins playing both UM songs and a wide range of covers. This year marked the 8th Annual Holiday Show, which benefits the USTORM Foundation. Those who came early were treated to an Umphrey’s Garage Sale where fans could buy vintage merchandise at a discount and a few lucky girls and boys could enjoy a picture with Santa Ryan Stasik.

In the spirit of giving, legendary King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp played four free shows on Dec 3rd and 4th in the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan. The shows were billed as Soundscapes. For those fortunate enough to attend, Robert suggested they may be the last of the “Frippertronics” pieces and possibly his final public performancesREAD ON for more incredible images from December…

Last Week’s Sauce: April 26th – May 2nd

We must be approaching festival season because the next gigs for three of the five bands in this week’s piece are at festivals. We’ve got a healthy dose of Grateful Dead this week with segments from both Burlington’s Dead Sessions and Zen Tricksters. We’ve also got a tune from RAQ’s return as well as Jim James lending some lead vocals to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and a new My Morning Jacket tune that does not feature James on lead vocals.

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.
