Keller Williams Winter Tour 2017 “Shut the Folk Up and Listen”

Keller Williams & Leo Kottke - Shut The Folk Up Tour 2016

From Keller Williams

“This winter, Keller wants everyone to “Shut the Folk Up and Listen”! Starting in January, Keller will continue his 2016 collaboration with Leo Kottke by bringing his newest project, “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” to 24 cities around the country! For this tour Keller goes back to his roots, with just an acoustic guitar, he’ll share the stage with one of his musical idols, flat picking six and twelve string guitarist Leo Kottke. This unique evening of music features solo sets by both artists and spontaneous collaborations between the two.

In addition to the 24 dates with Leo Kottke, the Pacific Northwest will get an album-release run (stay tuned for more info on this front!) and the midwest will get some Keller Solo love. ”

Papadosio Fall Tour 2016 “Pattern Integrities”

Papadosio - Pattern Integrities 2016

From Papadosio

“Papadosio have announced the release of their new EP, Pattern Integrities Vol. I due out September 21st, 2016, and phase one of the Pattern Integrities tour, kicking off with three nights headlining the Resonance Music Festival in Thornville, OH and concluding with two shows at Brooklyn’s iconic Brooklyn Bowl.
The Pattern Integrities tour introduces a new concept from Papadosio: The Pattern Integrity, or “P.I”, set. The P.I. set is in tribute to the great mind of Buckminster Fuller, and features live looping, sequencing, sampling, improvisation, and synthesis. The P.I. set is an effort to do something original, not just with the music itself, but the way in which it is performed. Fans can get a sneak peak of the P.I. set in the just released EP teaser video here.

Papadosio will dedicate the first night to the P.I. set in cities with two shows; and the first set in cities with one show. Papadosio presale for non-festival shows starts Thursday, July 28th. Local on-sales begin on Friday, July 29th.”

Fishbone Releases Sublime’s “Date Rape” in 360 Virtual Reality in Honor of Bradley Nowell

From Fishbone

In honor of the spirit and artistic contributions of the late Bradley Nowell, who passed away 20 years ago; LA’s legendary ska-punk-rockers, Fishbone debuts their virtual reality music video of Sublime’s “Date Rape” in “360° Experience”, live from The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA. Sublime originally released the song “Date Rape” back in 1992, off their LP 40 oz to Freedom.

“With all due respect to Bradley Nowell and the rest of the Sublime family, this is one of the many Sublime songs that cuts my heart, but its the main one I wish Fishbone would have written,” says co-founder and bass player Norwood Fisher.

Fishbone - Spring Tour 2016

One of the first Hollywood production houses to specialize in VR content, Experience 360° uses cutting-edge technology & workflows to produce original content for all consumer devices from traditional, two-dimensional access to content on phones, tablets, computers, and televisions in up to 8K resolution. The technical challenges in past attempts to create immersive virtual environments have been overcome by Experience 360°. The current challenge faced by the industry is generating compelling immersive content for this new medium.

Fishbone hits the road this week, starting May 26 in Cleveland, OH, then heads to Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, IL May 28, and many stops along the way in Minneapolis, Detroit, St. Louis and more.
