Re: “Art of Cool Festival, Night One: Revive Big Band's Music-History Concert Leaves Out Women to an Absurd Degree

Revive is my people. If folks were offended by this, I can assure you it wasn't intentional. Revive Music was created and is operated in large part by one mastermind, an amazing woman, Meghan Stabile. The amount of events she's done that's either featured, spotlighted and championed women of color in American Music, past and present, is unsurpassed - Nina Simone, KING, Dorothy Ashby, Dianne Reeves, Helen Sung, Brandee Younger, Terri Lynn Carrington, etc. This concert may not represent that sentiment to some, but if anything, anyone who was there and/or is reading this article, please take away the important message, which is that Black American's did more than contribute to the artistic and social constructs of this nation - we are the very foundation of it. We are the mirror to the life of many generations. Do not allow this slant, this POV, to condemn all the amazing and incomporable work that Revive does for music. If you're in NYC, check out their event this weekend, a tribute to an legendary female musician, Abbey Lincoln. It features Esperanza Spalding, Carrington https://www.facebook.com/events/1129475177179382/

And this, later in the month...

Re: “The blues of Randall Bramblett's career-long cult status—and the promise of his new Devil Music

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)

Re: “Video Premiere: Phil Cook and Skylar Gudasz Nod to Alice Gerrard in New Tribute Clips

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

Re: “Tuskha, the new project of Bowerbirds' Phil Moore, releases new video for "The Program"

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.

Re: “Richard Lloyd Tells a Vision: A Q&A with the Celebrated Guitarist

I stand corrected. The solo is Quine's.

Re: “Richard Lloyd Tells a Vision: A Q&A with the Celebrated Guitarist

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.

Re: “Richard Lloyd Tells a Vision: A Q&A with the Celebrated Guitarist

Nice to see this piece, but it was Robert Quine on "Girlfriend" not RL.

Re: “Moogfest Announces Nona Hendryx, Moor Mother, SURVIVE, and More in First Wave of Programming

@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.

Re: “Moogfest Announces Nona Hendryx, Moor Mother, SURVIVE, and More in First Wave of Programming

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.

Re: “Moogfest Announces Nona Hendryx, Moor Mother, SURVIVE, and More in First Wave of Programming

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?

Re: “Hopscotch, Night Two: Timing Tangles Erykah Badu and Young Thug

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.

Re: “Corrosion of Conformity, Superchunk Top the State Fair's Concerts This Year

Why does this piece call Maceo Parker a master funk bass man when he plays saxophone?
