Coachella 2012 Announcement

Posted by teibs On May - 31 - 2011

coach12 300x204 Coachella 2012 Announcement@ZackTeibloom The 2012 Coachella music festival will be held over two weekends! Wait a minute…it’s the same bands both weekends? What the deuce? Why? That takes any plan of going to both right out the window unless you want to read a bizarro re-creation of the first weekend. OK, on second thought, that could be kind of incredible. Every tough decision you make the first weekend can be corrected. You’ll have hindsight. Would you be able to have the perfect fest the second time or would the random elements make that impossible? Would bands use the same banter? Would they play the same sets? How can they get all these bands to commit to being there two weeks in a row? My head is spinning. My first thought is that I hate it. Now, I kinda wanna find a way to go for both weekends. I don’t know if there’s a precedence for this. Jazz Fest has two weekends, but 95% different artists. So far reaction on Coachella’s Facebook page is negative. We’ll see how it plays out. I’m wildly curious. Here’s the press release: Read the rest of this entry »

American Idol Finale – Season 10 Results Show

Posted by shore On May - 26 - 2011

aisten 300x183 American Idol Finale   Season 10 Results Show@AndyShore I was shocked when Zack requested I write about the American Idol Season 10 Finale Results Show taping I attended yesterday. Especially after two years of Zack complaining about my live blogging of the show. Being there live was truly a unique experience. I will probably never again be able to say I saw Judas Priest, Beyonce and Tony Bennett all in one show. One because it doesn’t happen, and two because unlike Zack, I don’t have dreams involving Dave Grohl and rainbow sequenced hot pants. The actual results of Idol Season 10 took a backseat. Both because of the awesome acts on the stage that weren’t Idol contestants, and more importantly, because I honestly don’t care about the two finalists. Read the rest of this entry »

When My Dad’s 64

Posted by teibs On May - 17 - 2011

64 300x240 When My Dads 64@ZackTeibloom Today is my dad’s 64th birthday. He’s been looking forward to this one for a while. Most people look forward to/regret turning 65 for the benefits/stigma of being a senior citizen. Only a cool dad like mine would look forward to his “When I’m 64″ Beatles birthday. The song is about a younger man thinking about his future and wondering if he’ll still be cared for as he gets older, “Will you still need me, will you still feed me?” I can say, unequivocally, that Suzy and I, and all your friends and family, need you more than ever. And we’ll happily feed you. Portillos, Sammy’s, fruit cocktail and everything else in your wheelhouse. Thankfully, unlike the 64 year-old in the song,  you’re not losing your hair. There’s no grandchildren to bounce on your knee yet, but I think that’s a good thing. Little Royal will have to wait. I can’t wait to see you this weekend. And like the song says, a birthday greeting and bottle of wine (and some pictures) are coming. Love always.

Obviously, you know the original with the “Yellow Submarine” version, but I’m pretty sure you don’t know the reggae version. Enjoy.

ACL 2011 Line-up & C3 Ban Podcrash

Posted by teibs On May - 17 - 2011

ACLpreviewpod 300x114 ACL 2011 Line up & C3 Ban Podcrash@ZackTeibloom We knew Arcade Fire was coming. We were pretty sure about Kanye and Stevie, but Coldplay was a wildcard. Will we even see them? Not if Kanye has anything to say about it. And Kanye always has something to say about things. Well, so do we. I open up about the C3 ban and what it means for the future of crashes, we compare ACL to Lolla and pick our favorite day. Who does Andy really want to see that would surprise you? And most importantly, why will someone get pregnant if Andy goes to a show? Click here to listen <—It’s only 20 minutes. Hang out with us.

ACL 2011 Headliners Leaked

Posted by teibs On May - 14 - 2011

stevietime 300x167 ACL 2011 Headliners Leaked@ZackTeibloom Kanye West. Arcade Fire. Stevie Wonder. Either SPIN printed it wrong, or these are your 2011 ACL Headliners. Get excited. Each of these three pack a world-class performance. All are in the mid-high 9 range when they bring their A-game. The only relative wildcard is Kanye, and he’s been on point lately. We know Arcade Fire are headlining for a fact, as they were the first name on the scratch off tickets, Kanye has been heavily rumored and is no stranger to Austin and there have been rumblings of Stevie. In my book, this tops Lollapalooza for best headliners of the summer. I texted Andy to tell him and he just wrote back, “Sick.” We’ll drop a podcrash on you Tuesday when it’s official, with the rest of the names, but for now, I’ll be going to bed dreaming of these three. Oh, and My Morning Jacket, Chromeo, Cee-Lo, Fleet Foxes, Fitz and The Tantrums and everyone else already confirmed. C3- you know how to get a damn good line-up together. Even if we’re not besties anymore. See you in the dust bowl AKA ACL.

Here’s some of our favorite reviews of Kanye, Stevie and Arcade Fire: Read the rest of this entry »

Festival Crashers Blacklisted from C3

Posted by teibs On May - 11 - 2011

blacklist 300x134 Festival Crashers Blacklisted from C3@ZackTeibloom We always kind of feared this would happen. When we were first starting out in February 2008, Andy didn’t want us to advertise that we crashed festivals for this very reason. He fought me on having a tab on the site dedicated to crashing. Over the last couple years, he’s come around on crashing and even done a few himself. The crashing tab is now the third highest traffic getter in the history of the site, only behind the home page and the festivals tab. It’s a pretty big part of the site, but more than anything, we’re about the music. We always have been. We never thought anyone would actually care that much about the crashing. We’re a small Web site covering festivals the best we can and sharing our love with other fans. We didn’t think anyone paid us any mind. That’s why today’s call from Fresh and Clean Media/C3 Presents was so surprising. Read the rest of this entry »

gpceelo 300x185 Cee Lo Green: Talking to Strangers featuring Grace Potter & the Nocturnals@AndyShore I jumped at the opportunity, when I saw Grace Potter post on Facebook saying they needed people for the studio audience for a taping of Cee Lo Green’s new talk show on Fuse. Those are two of my favorite artists in one place, and Cee Lo has proven to be as funny as I expected on the Voice. I could only imagine the hilarious back and forth between Cee Lo and Grace. Unfortunately I still can only imagine, but more on that later. Read the rest of this entry »

Arcade Fire takes Crown of Love from Austin

Posted by teibs On May - 5 - 2011

winafcrop 300x211 Arcade Fire takes Crown of Love from Austin@ZackTeibloom I had no intention of crying at the Arcade Fire show. Even as tears were streaming down my face, only a song into their set, I didn’t know why I was doing it. There were enormous expectations for the night. Was it the hours and hours of build up coming out in a moment of pure ecstacy? Was it Win coming into the crowd? I’ve always had a thing for singers coming into the crowd and getting right in my face. Was I just that enchanted by Win and Regine and Will? I know this ranks right up there in the 9.7-9.8 range with LCD at Stubbs and Phoenix at La Zona Rosa, for truly pantheon Austin performances at our biggest venues, but why did it resonate more than any others? I’ll start at the beginning and try to figure it out.

When you take a day off work, pay above cover for a ticket and find your way to Bee Caves two hours before the doors even open, you better pray the show will be worth it. You hear a rough and unpolished, brand new band doing sound check as you sit in the dirt outside, realize there’s another band coming before Explosions in the Sky, and hope for the best. “We Used to Wait for It.” We’re used to waiting for it. You kill another hour in the dirt, rationing out water and sunscreen. You sweat, holding sweatshirts for the thirty degree temperature drop on the way. The doors finally open. You’re told not to run, so you hop, skip and jump your way into the venue and settle in. Three rows back, dead center. The kids that got there at 11 am, 5 hours before you, got themselves an extra 5 feet closer than you. You get a perfectly cold beer and a cold enough water bottle as last supplies and hunker down. You joke that you wish you could take a number and go further out of earshot for Schmillion and be laying down, staring up at the sky for Explosions in the Sky, but you know that if you want Win Butler singing into your face, you’re going to have to stay right where you are. And you most certainly do want Win Butler singing in your face. Read the rest of this entry »
