“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. ”
“The recent heavy rains experienced in the Charleston area have water-logged the grounds of Riverfront Park. With more rain in the forecast over the course of the next few days, conditions are likely to worsen. Thus, we will be unable to safely and expediently build the festival site as planned. With this in mind, Chucktown Ball is being moved to the North Charleston Coliseum.
We take our fans’ safety very seriously and want to provide you with the best experience possible. All previously purchased tickets will be honored at the new venue and all bands will still perform as planned, with the exception of Dangermuffin, who are no longer available to participate. We intend to take the vision of Chucktown Ball and deliver an amazing experience alongside the accommodating staff of the the North Charleston Coliseum, who are thrilled to now be hosting our event. We hope you are ready for some arena rock!”

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.
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.

“Couch Tour is back and we’re not messing around. UM is happy to announce yet another webcast collaboration between Umphrey’s McGee and TourGigs, bringing you the entire tour, a whopping 15 nights! We will be kicking things off TONIGHT in Cleveland, OH and bringing you every single show through the double header in Asheville, NC on February 20th. Shows can be streamed with an Event Pass for $12.99, or you can buy the Tour Pass - access to all 15 shows – for $129.99 (a $65 savings).
We are debuting some exciting new features for this tour. Firstly, anyone who purchases any show (Event Pass or Tour Pass) gets access to the replay as well as On Demand. The replay, available almost immediately after the show is over, is a looping replay of the show with no viewer controlled playback. The On Demand, available the day after the show, allows you to start, pause, fast forward etc. the entire show. The On Demand access will remain available throughout the entire tour until February 22nd. In addition, the chat room has now been optimized better for mobile, so you can have a better two screen experience of watching the stream on your television or computer while participating in the chat on your mobile device.
We always hope to see you in person but if you can’t make it out, consider yourself covered. The next four shows feature the great Joshua Redman joining us on sax so there is no time like the present to lock in your Tour Pass. As an added bonus for picking up the Tour Pass, you’ll receive On Demand access to the unreleased NYE 2015 run from the Fillmore.”
From Umphrey’s McGee
“Umphrey’s McGee announces the start of 2016 with a 25-plus-date national tour kicking off with a three-night run at the historic Beacon Theatre in NYC, two nights in Asheville for our first arena double-header, and a triumphant return to the Left Coast in March. Instrumental rock-fusion quartet, TAUK, joins us for over 15 performances, as well as our friends The Motet in Asheville, and saxophone virtuoso Joshua Redman on select dates.
2016 marks Umphrey’s 18th year on the road! In our continued effort to push the envelope of heightened fan experiences, our immersive high-end audio offering Headphones & Snowcones will be offered during the 2016 tour, alongside umVIP Enhanced Experience programs. Get the full umVIP experience at our triple-headers in New York City and Aspen, as well as our two-night arena stand in Asheville. “Nothing Too Fancy” umVIP ticket upgrades will also be available in Kalamazoo, Richmond, and Sandpoint. Each umVIP program is unique in its offerings, but all of them have the same core principle: we hook it up, so you can GET DOWN.
Pre-sale tickets along with the umVIP packages will go on sale Wednesday, October 21st at 10:00 am ET for Leg 1 dates (January 27th thru February 20th), and Wednesday, October 21st at 10:00 am local time for Leg 2 dates (March 10th thru 26th). Likewise, the public on-sale will occur Friday, October 23rd at 10:00 am EST on the East Coast, and 10:00 am local time on the West Coast.
Stay tuned for more dates to come, more innovative offerings from Team UM (Couch Tour anyone?), and more opportunities to roll umVIP as we kick off 2016 the best way we know how — with rock hands blazing.”
From Umphrey’s McGee
“Umphrey’s McGee returns to Charleston, South Carolina on September 24 through 26 for the first-ever Chucktown Ball 2015, a three-night run at the Music Farm. As some members of Team UM now call Charleston home, we are excited to rock a triple the only way Umphrey’s knows how. For those of you interested in the cherry on top, umVIP has put together packages including travel options. To boot, the Music Farm is currently undergoing a face lift just in time for these special three nights. Umphrey’s fans can expect better sight-lines, a new PA, more room, updated bathrooms, and overall a better concert experience.
umVIP packages and pre-sale of discounted $80.00 three-day tickets will begin at 10:00 am ET Wednesday, July 1st, with public on-sale beginning 10:00 am ET Wednesday, July 8th.
To aide the continued efforts begun by Rev. Clementa Pinckney, and to further assist those effected by the recent tragedy at Mother Emmanuel Church, a portion of all ticket sales will be donated to Lowcountry Ministries – the Reverend Pinckney Fund.”
“Umphrey’s McGee and TourGigs are triumphantly reuniting to bring you a Pay Per View stream of the Chucktown Ball, live from the Music Farm this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 24th – 26th. The HD multi-cam live stream kicks off at 9:00 PM ET (all 3 nights), but in case you can’t watch it live, we’ve got you covered. We will be playing a looping replay of the each night’s show for about 24 hours after it airs. Anyone who purchases the webcast can watch the replay. Each night’s webcast can be purchased a la carte for $12.99, or bundle the 3 nights together for $29.99. Don’t miss this Chucktown Ball couch tour experience!
Our streams work on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, iOS devices, Android devices, Roxwel Samsung Smart TV app and now ROKU! To watch the stream on Roku, download the ‘Roxwel’ Channel on your Roku set top box. From the Roxwel channel, you can select the stream and enter your code to watch.”
“Mike Gordon returns to the road with his band on the heels of last year’s exhilarating tour supporting Overstep. The Mike Gordon June Tour 2015 will begin down south in Charleston, SC and will include stops in St. Louis, Chicago, Philly, Albany, Buffalo, New Haven and more. Mike will perform as part of the Lowell Summer Music Series just outside of Boston and will return to the famed Egg in Albany.
A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a real-time presale at tickets.mike-gordon.com which ends Thursday, April 9 at 5PM ET. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, April 10.
The band will make a few debuts along the way including The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, Paper Mill Island in Syracuse and a Father’s Day show at the Academy of Music in Northampton. The band’s repertoire will be augmented by hints of synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.
Wired Magazine came out to a show on Mike’s March tour last year to experience and talk about the new visual, audio and interactive tech-ification that will be a part of this June run. Mike will be bringing along his band – Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Robert Walter (keyboards) and John Kimock (drums).
“I like the idea of breaking down boundaries,” Gordon says. Of the theatrics and curiosities onstage on the Overstep tour, the centerpiece is an interactive piano-like instrument spanning the lip of the stage. At certain points during the show, touch-sensitive panels illuminate; by tapping on them, audience members trigger sounds and jam with the band as it plays. That’s just one piece of the big wacky puzzle. To experience it for yourself, catch one of the shows on this tour.”

“Known for their amazing live shows and the frequency at which they tour, blues-inspired southern rock band Widespread Panic have been creating a dedicated following since forming in the early ’80s. Based on the strength of their musicianship, songs like the Billboard charting “Can’t Get High” and “Hope in a Hopeless World,” and energetic live shows, they’ve managed to rank among the top 50 grossing touring acts for eight years straight without the aid of substantial radio play, television appearances, or retail store promotion.
In December 2003, after playing annually for 18 years (adding up to over 100 dates!) and breaking sell-out records for Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Oak Mountain Amphitheatre, Philips Arena and UNO Lakefront Arena, the band decided to take a well-deserved break. But in 2005, fans nationwide were treated to Widespread Panic’s highly anticipated return to the road.”
