Around Windham County – Brattleboro Reformer
Play A cloud seems to hang over every note of this bipartite threnody for the victims of 9/11, written by Anastasio/Marshall in a glum Newark hotel room. Eventually, though, it evolvesinto a Zen-like contemplation of silent trees. Play 4. “Stash” Profoundly goofball lyrics (“The solar garlic starts to rot/ Was it for this my life I sought?”) tee up the band’s jazziest tension-and-release hyperspace explorations. Play 3. “Limb By Limb” Inspired by Rio de Janeiro parade drumming, Anastasio composed seemingly impossible polyrhythmic parts for Jon Fishman, who unravels and reconstructs them underneath particularly poignant Marshall lyrics about how love can tear you apart when you’re “trampled by lambs and pecked by the dove.” Play 2. “Simple” “We’ve got it simple, ’cause we’ve got a band.” The best song Lennon-McCartney never wrote celebrates Phish’s synergistic band/community relationship with processional aplomb and sly surrealism. Play 1.

7, 2014, 2:21 PM EST By Kory Grow Also from Rolling Stone: The Who Planning New Album Before Upcoming 50th Anniversary Tour As an example, the group cites its 2002 film, The High Numbers at the Railway Hotel, which a Dutch fan had been holding onto since 1964. The Who will include the best and most interesting items in their forthcoming anniversary releases, crediting the fans who offered them up, and giving each respective fan two VIP tickets to a show on its upcoming tour. Fans with extraordinary odds & sods can email the group at firstname.lastname@example.org. Meanwhile, the group will put out a greatest hits collection, The Who Hits 50!, on October 28th, and Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend & Co. are prepping for a Who Hits 50! tour that will take them to arenas in the U.K. this fall and North America in 2015. Additionally, over the next year, the group will mark its golden anniversary with releases and events that will commemorate the group’s cultural impact. At a press conference in late June, Daltrey personified the upcoming tour as “the beginning of the long goodbye.” The band has said that it would play “all the classic anthems” and deep cuts spanning its entire career, from when it was using the name the High Numbers to the present.

The Who ask fans for rare recordings for 50th anniversary festivities – MSN Music News
Its artist roster includes Grammy-winner Richard Stoltzman, Pulitzer Prize-winner Lewis Spratlan, Pete Townshend of The Who and former New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow. PARMA music has been featured in projects and programming on CBS, ABC, Fox, PBS, C-SPAN, National Geographic, A&E and Showtime. Matthias Muller, clarinet professor at the Zurich University of the Arts, has performed as a soloist with the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, Basle Symphony Orchestra, Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra Moscow and Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, among others. With the festival, PARMA officials celebrate a collaborative approach to the music-making process, from composition to performance and touring to marketing. Organizers added to a sense of invention by choosing venues which, like the concerts themselves, range from the conventional to the casual, including both concert hall and local bar, and offering experiments and educational opportunities along the way. Events will range from daytime events at Portsmouths North Church, St. Johns Church, South Church and The Music Hall Loft to evening events at the Red Door, Thirsty Moose Taphouse, The Music Hall and Portsmouth Music and Arts Center, as well as in Kittery, Maine, at The Dance Hall and Buoy Gallery. Putting Out the Call A typical feature of a music festival is a call for scores, a process by which festival organizers solicit music that will be performed during concerts and events.
