Days and Nights Festival: Through A Glass, Gladly

While our national "leaders'' go through their Kabuki dance inWashington, gesturing wildly at shadowy villains of their own imagination, it's heartening to see other models arising: communitarian, artistic, generous.

As usual, California seems to be ahead of the curve, enacting sensible immigration laws, providing health care and focusing on workable and humane solutions. Just this weekend, as No Depression readers know well, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, with its plethora…

Magic, Madness and Myth in Monterey

The ghosts of the past were all over the place – after all, this is the place where Janis, Jimi and Otis tore up the place at the Monterey Pop Festival, which coincidentally recently celebrated its 45th anniversary -  but the mood at the first annual Monterey Americana Festival this weekend was definitely in the here and now.

Although the event,  headlined by cultural hero of the moment Jason Isbell, was criminally underattended, despite lots of good ink in the local…

Chet Flippo, Remembered

It was overshadowed by the news about James Gandolfini, but Chet Flippo, who had an enormous effect on rock journalism, basically bringing country into the mainstream, has just died.

I didn't know Chet , although we were Facebook "friends'' (whatever that may mean), but had enormous respect for his work, and the tributes pouring in from people's lives he touched are obviously…

Live Concert Review – Bill Frisell, Hal Willner and Chloe Webb perform Allen Ginsberg’s “Kaddish’’ at SFJAZZ Center

It was a strange night in a strange week. At a time when it appeared that the world had (temporarily, one hopes) gone mad, “Kaddish,’’ Allen Ginsberg’s lament for his mad mother was being presented at the San Francisco Jazz Center, in an unusual collaboration between protean hipster music producer Hal Willner (no relation to yours truly, although we both probably have roots in the same Lithuanian village), with music composed and conducted by the multi-talented guitarist Bill Frisell, in a…

Hi Paul ,

You're probably right about the Janis comments in Stanley's book..hippie sloppiness against  the sort of tightness and flash necessary to hold a down home crowd ,  Thought she'd have been hip to this beforehand , though . Confess I was not a fan..still got the Big Brother album(Cheap Thrills) which I wanted for the Crumb sleeve .

So much music , so little time...

Best wishes, 

vp
