String Cheese Incident - NYE 2016

From StringCheeseIncident.com

“Hey gang, we just kicked off a massive summer tour at Electric Forest this past weekend and we are so pumped to be out on the road playing music for you all! But we’re also always looking towards the future, so we wanted to share the news that SCI will ring in another New Year at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO, December 29th-31st!

NYE in Colorado will be the final shows announced in 2016. So that means Summer Tour will be one of your last chances to see the band before the fall/winter. With 20+ shows coast to coast, there’s an Incident for everyone out there! Come boogie with us! We’ll be spending most of the fall working on projects in our newly announced Sound Lab at SCI HQ. And then we’ll close out the year in style at the 1STBANK Center!

The NYE shows in CO will go on sale via SCI Ticketing on Wednesday, August 10th at 10am MDT, followed by a public on sale on Friday, August 12th. Stay tuned for info on Ultimate Incident Travel Packages!”

New Album ~ Bassnectar Releases ‘Unlimited’ [6.17.16]

Bassnectar -'Unlimited'

From Bassnectar

Dear Friends & Family!
“Our whole entire team is excited to announce the release of my next album “UNLIMITED” – this is a collection of music which represents the vastly eclectic musical tastes & creative ideas of both myself and many friends & collaborators who joined the project to build something unique and heartfelt. This is a very deep release for me, with much more downtempo than usual, and a lot of concepts I have wanted to finish for a long time finally coming to fruition.

The general theme of this album is the unlimited combinations of sound & ideas within the creative process; treating music like a sonic collage, exploring multiple simultaneous possibilities at once and wandering through the interplay between all the various layers and options. Every song has multiple versions and special hidden meaning, and alternate endings. And each song was created with you in mind… as part of an unwritten soundtrack to a future experience where your body and mind can lose themselves in the molecules, and the sound waves, and the energy 🙂

Click here to pre-order Unlimited + get 4 tracks now!

Here is the plot: the full album is slated for release everywhere June 17, and that evening we are planning to sync up for a live interactive release party, which we are calling our Listening Adventure. Last time for ‘Into the Sun’ it was our Listening Party, and we encouraged everyone to get together in groups to experience the new music. This time, since the music is a bit deeper and more downtempo, we are encouraging you to take a more inwards journey: find a good pair of headphones, or a prime location where you can really soak in the music, and then tune in to our live interactive exchange to join the conversation (more details to follow)…”

Video: Umphrey’s McGee “Reel to Real” – Watch the Trailer, Rent the Movie

From Umphrey’s McGee

“Reel to Real is an archival rock documentary about the innovative Umphrey’s McGee, diving deep into the early years by examining their inner workings through unreleased band shot camcorder footage. It reflects on UM’s days of suspended youth, racking up thousands of miles in a van and trailer without a worry in sight. But reality knocks as a founding member walks away mid tour, putting the entire venture in jeopardy. It’s a view behind the curtain, one designed not to paint a picture of what you think it’s like, but what it’s actually like to make the journey.”

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.

Bassnectar in ATL 2016 – Secret Location

Bassnectar - ATL 2016

From Bassnectar

“Come spend a weekend with us as we take over Downtown Atlanta for our first show since 2013 at The Tabernacle! We are going back to our roots – the underground parties of the 1990s: one room, one floor, no seats, sweat dripping from the ceiling, secret location…

There will be a map point & info to follow, but to be clear this is not a “show” – it’s a gathering.
As it is a destination weekend event, if you’re local to ATL then invite your friends from out of town and pull out the sleeping bags. It’s another family affair, and you are invited to be a part of it, but these tickets will go extremely fast, and we want to avoid scalpers as much as we can.

Joining us for this most special event: Hudson Mohawke – Lunice – Truth – Big Wild – ATLiens – Hustle Up”
