After months of anticipation, Woodstock 50 organizers have at last shared the full lineup for the festival’s half century anniversary. John Fogerty, Santana, Country Joe McDonald, Canned Heat and Hot Tuna, and John Sebastian, who all appeared at the 1969 event will perform at Woodstock 50, in homage to the festival’s original lineup. The Grateful Dead, who also graced Woodstock’s 1969 lineup, will take the stage at Woodstock 50 as Dead & Company with John Mayer.

The three-day lineup is an eclectic amalgamation of 1969 artists and comparatively more recent acts. The Killers, Halsey, JAY-Z, Black Keys, Chance The Rapper, Miley Cyrus, Cage the Elephant, Miley Cyrus, Janelle Monae, Earl Sweatshirt, and Brandi Carlile illustrate the genre-canvassing character of Woodstock 50’s sprawling roster of talent.

“Woodstock ’94 was a nice mix of young and old and that’s kind of what we’re going for here,” festival organizer Michael Lang told Rolling Stone. Woodstock 50 will take place from August 16-18 at Watkins Glen, New York. Tickets for the landmark anniversary event will go on sale April 22. More information about tickets can be found on Woodstock 50’s official website.

.Paak is back: Artist announces new LP on the way, accompanying tour

.Paak is back: Artist announces new LP on the way, accompanying tourAnderson .paak Onard Release Date Artwork

Seasoned crooner Anderson .Paak just doesn’t seem to ever run out of steam. Mere months after dropping his highly acclaimed LP, Oxnard, in November 2018, .Paak is back, and eyeing his next album release. The followup to Oxnard bears the name Ventura, and as in the case of Oxnard, Ventura too accredits Dr. Dre as the project’s executive producer. Slated to arrive on April 12, Ventura is the fourth and final installment in .Paak’s narrative series of albums.

“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over, I went further and found my depth,” .Paak said in a release. “The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time, but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number, so welcome to Ventura.”

Post-Ventura release, .Paak will embark on a 21-date tour in support of the album. Thundercat will assist at each stop on the tour, while Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco, and Jesse Reyez will appear as openers on select dates. The tour, entitled “Anderson .Paak’s Best Teef in the Game Tour,” will take the artist through a myriad of major U.S. cities, spanning New York, Toronto, Chicago, and more. Tickets to the tour will go on sale on March 8. Each ticket purchase comes with either a CD or digital edition of Ventura.

Tyler, The Creator reunites Odd Future at Low End Theory’s final installment, and drops a new music video with A$AP Rocky

Tyler, The Creator reunites Odd Future at Low End Theory’s final installment, and drops a new music video with A$AP RockyTyler The Creator

Low End Theory unplugged its sound system for the final time with a packed house on Wednesday, August 8. The bittersweet event brought droves of avid supporters for the send off, and even featured an Odd Future reunion. The closing of LA’s beloved club night went out with a bang, with Tyler, the Creator set to headline. In a twist of sorts, a mini-reunion ensued with Earl Sweatshirt, Syd, Hodgy Beats, and more. The group’s former factotum went on to mention The Airliner, where the beloved experimental hip-hop and electronic club night took place every Wednesday for over a decade, was in fact where Odd Future had their first show.

Attendees of the sold out event had a chance to hear Wolf Haley’s version of Gucci Mane‘s “Lemonade,” and “Orange Juice.” Biz Markie was there to capture the visuals.

Oh, and A$AP Rocky showed up too. Low End’s send off was quite the affair. Tyler and Rocky’s club appearance was closely followed by a new drop from the two rappers in the new clip for “See You Again” from 2017’s Flower Boy. Stirring anticipation for a collaborative project between the A$AP Mob and Odd Future frontmen is starting to build, and hopefully it materializes soon.

Check out Tyler, The Creator’s first ever NPR Tiny Desk concert

This post was originally published on this site


2017 was arguably Tyler, the Creator’s biggest year yet. The OFWGKTA founder released his fourth studio album Flower Boy back in July to widespread critical acclaim. It saw Tyler hit lyrical stride at the peak of his career through a journey of introspective, self defining tracks.

Tyler, the Creator’s debut Tiny Desk performance was the first time NPR has held a nighttime performance, at the special request of Tyler’s team to light the room themselves.

Tyler and his bandmates perform bathed in a saturation of rich, self lit colors, “What’s your name?” Tyler asks a woman in the crowd. “Nana” she replies. Tyler then motions to his backing choir to sing along, “Nana in this motherfucker” they sing. It’s quite silly, but Tyler and his backing group sing with an impassioned fervor.

The group plays “Boredom,” “See you Again,” and “Glitter” across the twenty minute concert, all songs from Flower Boy. Tyler’s bandmates balance his nonchalant frontman presence with their earnest vocal hymns. Even when he’s joking, Tyler, the Creator seems to hit a soft spot in his audience.
