Small crowds like the one in Utrecht The Netherlands where I was with my 7 year young daughter may be humbling to RB but in real terms this is freaking absurd given the quality of his music, his musicians, every song he has written and every song he has played ....in Holland he was not even picked up by Paradiso Amsterdam but played The Helling a small venue in Utrecht....I have been playing his music to every visitor who entered my house ....over 500 in some 8 couchsurfer hosting years .... great music everybody acknowledges ...buy his stuff I will promote him until my last breath A real Southerner to be proud of.... Wish I would live in Georgia just to see him on a regular basis not once in a lifetime (so far)
Wow! I am speechless. Skylar that was amazing! You are very talented. I love your vocal range and passion. Thank you Alice Gerrard for writing that song. It gives me goosebumps. So meaningful especially in these times. xoxo
Also the "correction" (UPDATE) above is incorrect. The original anticipated release date of the new Bowerbirds album was September 2014. We didn't even get our money from the Kickstarter until January 2013.
I stand corrected. The solo is Quine's.
Richard Lloyd did play guitar on "Girlfriend," as did Robert Quine. In fact, so did Ivan Julian, and Fred Maher, and Matthew Sweet: liner notes are really helpful.
Nice to see this piece, but it was Robert Quine on "Girlfriend" not RL.
@BrianHowe-- Thank you SO MUCH. I had seen that she was part of the Philip Glass program, but for some reason I thought she wasn't going to be there in person.
@Aims Arches, just in case you haven't seen this, Laurie Anderson will be in Chapel Hill next week!
I mean, if "they" includes "world-renowned futurists, philosophers and visionary artists" I think we can be pretty hopeful about what will unfold under the 2017 themes. Super bummed I missed Laurie Anderson last year. She never fails to bring incisive perspectives on current issues home, like in a visceral sense.
It will be interesting to see where the "protest" theme goes. Will they be collaborating with local protest groups like Durham in Defiance, Beyond Policing, or SURJ, to see what progress could be made on issues that are important to local activists? Or defining "protest" in a different way to avoid engaging with controversial issues?
I'm so happy to see this collaboration, and this affordable way to attend both!
Though I know it isn't Redhat's fault she was late, I do think they could have handled the situation better. They released an updated set time initially, I wish they would have followed through and kept us updated. I also felt she was a bit more lackluster than usual. I know artists are people too, but she could have brought a bit more energy to the crowd who gave up precious show time to stay and wait on her. Kudos to Redhat for pushing past ordinance, but they should work on keeping the crowd up to date.
Most amazing times Catching you with old friends in Grayton Beach ...Kyle , Bouder ...and our dear lost love Kenny... Dread Clampitt ...can't wait to see you at Ardmore Music Hall !

Thanks so much for giving me a platform to share this video far and wide. I appreciate everything the IndyWeek staff does to promote local arts music and culture !! Louis Landry
It was an editing error. It has been fixed. Thanks for pointing it out.
Why does this piece call Maceo Parker a master funk bass man when he plays saxophone?
Last paragraph is just more proof there is a double standard when it comes to justice.
Thank you so much for these clips; it was a special show.
