Grateful Dead: Confirm Obama Show

The Grateful Dead
They will perform at a fundraiser in October

The Grateful Dead have confirmed rumours that they will perform for US Presidential candidate Barack Obama at a fundraiser next month.

The four remaining members of The Grateful Dead will perform at Penn State University's Bryce Jordan Center. Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Mickey Hart played a concert in February to encourage people to vote, and will be joined by fourth member Bill Kreutzmann on October 13 for the Obama fundraiser, reports Variety.

Members of the Allman Brothers Band are also due to perform at the event, increasing the likelihood that Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule man Warren Haynes will perform with the ‘Dead.

The gig may be a test-run for a rumoured full tour to take place in 2009.

The Shys: You'll Never Understand This Band the Way That I Do - Album Review

When I got the new Shys album in the mail, I wondered what The Shys would have to say? What have they been cooking up? Will it measure up to the first album, "Astoria"? That album was filled with heavy grooves, a lot of angst, and a few great songs. It also had one of my favorite rock n roll songs in years: 'Call In The Cavalry', so my expectations were high.

You'll Never Understand This Band the Way That I Do
The album starts with a great instrumental track 'Spanish Village by the Sea', which basically sets the backbone of this record. The whole album flows together & feels like one long piece, not a bunch of songs hashed out & forced together, or a lackluster attempt at making soul music.

Not one song stands out as the albums finest moment--the album should be taken as a whole. The Shys are just setting a mood with You'll Never Understand This Band The Way I Do, which would be lost by flipping song to song. The feel I get on this album is basically 'How Do You Sleep' / ‘Gimme Some Truth’ era John Lennon, Kyle Krone's vocals all rootsy and angst ridden.

Some of my favorite moments on this record are:
Hangman: Great heavy slide & anthemic chorus. A definite sing-a-long.
Savior: this song maybe the jewel of this album. Amazing intro of stutters & stops, & such a soulful feel. Then cutting into a very smooth chorus.
Brother Please: Like 'Savior', it has that Plastic Ono Band feel to it.
The first single She's Already Gone: with flavors reminiscent of The Band, it just rounds out the tone for this effort.

All in all You'll Never Understand This Band The Way I Do is an amazing step forward for The Shys, taking their knack for writing blues / soul influenced indie rock to another level. No shtick or pretention, ala the Black Kids. This isn’t lightweight indie music. This is 5 guys making soul music with angst & feeling. They've shown a knack for making not only a hit song, but a record that really flows together. Definitely not a case of the sophomore slump.
