First Avenue Hosts All-Night Dance Parties In Honor Of Prince

first_imgAmong Prince’s many claims to fame was his role as a unifying force for Minneapolis culture, as the Purple One was born in the Minnesota city and stayed true to his roots throughout his entire life. Not only did Prince live at Paisley Park, just outside of the city, but his iconic film Purple Rain was filmed at the beloved club First Avenue.The club served as a symbolic home for artists to pay their respects to Prince for years. Groups like TV On The Radio, STS9 and more come to mind as bands that performed Prince covers at First Avenue within the last year alone. Of course, those efforts were made during Prince’s lifetime; a true representation of Prince’s legendary status.In the wake of Prince’s passing yesterday, fans everywhere flocked to First Avenue, and the venue became a literal shrine for the late great. Well aware of their role in Prince’s legacy, the venue threw an all-night dance party yesterday, charging no cover and keeping music going from 11:30 PM until the morning. For those who weren’t able to make it, the venue is planning similar events for tonight and tomorrow night, with dance parties starting at 1:30 AM and running until the wee hours.The venue also shared the following statement in memorial:Our hearts are broken. Prince was the Patron Saint of First Avenue. He grew up on this stage, and then commanded it, and he united our city. It is difficult to put into words the impact his death will have on the entire music community, and the world. As the tragic news sinks in, our thoughts are with Prince’s family, friends, and fans. We deeply mourn the loss of our friend, a true star.Rest in peace and power Prince.[Via CBS Minnesota]last_img read more

With Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein in on the reunion, expect a revival of some of the classic Misfits songs, and costumes, for the performance.Only and Danzig were founding members of the group, and fought over the band and its rights for years. Eventually, Only was allowed to perform with a new singer throughout the 90s, while Danzig focused on his eponymous solo project. The reunion was unexpected, but certainly well received by longtime fans of the band.They said it would never happen…last_img read more

David Bowie’s Last-Ever Recordings To Be Featured On Upcoming Release

first_imgEarlier this year, the world lost an icon in David Bowie, who dramatically exited the world with a brand new album called Blackstar or ★. Bowie’s final album is essentially a reflection of his life and his death, as the songwriter knew his days were numbered during the recording process. It was a truly beautiful moment in artistry, however bittersweet it was.★ wasn’t the only project that Bowie was working on during his final days, as he composed the entire score for a musical called Lazarus. Starring Michael C. Hall, Lazarus had a successful run off-Broadway, and will soon open up in London. A new cast album compilation is due out on October 21st, and, as Consequence of Sound noted, the album will also feature a handful of original Lazarus recordings by David Bowie himself.The Thin White Duke recorded three songs, “No Plan”, “Killing a Little Time”, and “When I Met You”, with the same lineup of musicians that orchestrated ★. Until now, only the cast recordings of these songs have surfaced, so this new release will indeed spotlight some of Bowie’s last-ever recorded music.As the Bowie family has promised to continue sharing unreleased music from the late great David Bowie, the new Lazarus compilation is certainly a step in this promising direction. Unreleased Bowie music will also be featured on the forthcoming box set Who Can I Be Now?, which will feature a full version of his 1974 album The Gouster. More info here.Rest in peace, Starman.last_img read more

Bob Dylan Shares Unreleased Gospel Tune From 1980 Rehearsal

first_imgIn 1978, Bob Dylan spent a great deal of time writing gospel tunes, many of which never made it on record simply because there wasn’t enough time to release them all. Most of the unrecorded songs lived on gospel tours from 1979 to 1981 (that eventually turned into bootlegs), or they never left the rehearsal room at all. One of the songs to never see the light of day was called “Making a Liar Out of Me,” which was only once mentioned as a song title in Clinton Heylin‘s book Still on the Road: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1974-2006. “Making a Liar Out of Me” will be featured in a six disc set from Bob Dylan’s gospel era to be released on November 3, 2017 as Trouble No More: The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979–1981. The box set will feature both studio and live recordings from this era to place Dylan in his own period of sound, creativity, and ultimate mastery.You can now listen to the studio recording of “Making a Liar Out of Me,” recorded at a rehearsal on September 26, 1980, below:The Nobel Prize-winning songwriter is gearing up to hit the road with the great Mavis Staples later this week through the end of November. See below for a full list of Bob Dylan’s fall tour dates with Mavis Staples.
