What I Missed, Someone Else Didn't...

If you're like me and missed the Black Rock Coalition's show over at Brooklyn Academy of Music's BAMcaféLive this past weekend (chile, no!), part of the BRC and BAM's Black History Month, and officially #2 of 3. You can live vicariously through Bold As Love's write up, and wait with baited breath for Bluegum's take on it while they offer a Morrison-Obama moment. Plus Bold As Love has a great interview with Stew, newly of Broadway with his black rock musical Passing Strange, and a write up of the show (but with no spoilers).

• Friday, February 29th
Next up at BRC's BAMcaféLive series is Earthdriver (pictured right) and Swear On Your Life (whose lead singer, MilitiA's rasped howls on "Self Taught" remind me of Fetchin Bones singer Hope Nicholls' gutterals on the intro to 1989's "Love Crushing"). Interestingly, Earthdriver is a musical collective that considers itself "just as much a movement as it is a band." Read more about them here.

And apparently there's more to be revealed on the URB ALT front for 2008; and what's poppin' over at the Bold As Live series for 2008? We're waitin', anticipatin'. The year's just getting started, but a lot's cookin', ma chere.

If you don't believe me look at the line up for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (April 25-27, May 1-4, 2008) including: The Neville Brothers, Santana, MAZE featuring Frankie Beverly, Stevie Wonder, Buckwhet Zydeco, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Burning Spear, Ozomatli with Chali 2na, Lizz Wright, Barbara Lynn (I'm A Good Woman, You'll Loose A Good Thing; Texas lefty guitar player), Golden Comanche and Chief Iron Horse & the Black Seminole Mardi Gras Indians, Irma Thomas, Cassandra Wilson, Elvis Costello & Alvin Toussaint, Al Green, Keyshia Cole... I can't list the whole line-up here, it's too dang long. But do check it out...

Put Your Records On
Meanwhile....father and son ya Salaam of breath of life are creating virtual musical calls to various actions, proffering the following jukebox bounty and conversation for the week of February 18th:

"The Isley Brothers give us 16 slow jamz. The Coup give us street reportage. And Obama gives us hope ;>). I couldn’t resist saying that even though what we get is three songs promoting Obama featuring The Mighty Sparrow, The Bergevin Brothers with Reverend Pat Wright & The Total Experience Gospel Choir, and Will.I.Am with a huge cast of supporting artists. Be inspired to act."

Well, don't you have some place to be? I know I do.
