Kula at Wanderlust

USPS played a really fun set at Saturday Night Kula at Kula Yoga Project in Williamsburg, (i hate capitals), it was really interesting to make music as people move to it doing strange yoga postures, you really can sense a connection with the music and people.

Kula Yoga, is also owned by schuyler grant who with her husband eric krasno, run the wanderlust festival.

to celebrate 10 years of kula they are having a special event at wanderlust wednesday night, purchase tickets at either studio and get a $20 dollar discount, a "sage pass" gives you access to the kula pre festival party. schulyer grant is also teaching a class that night.

Union Street Preservation Society/Andy Statman play The Living Room on 04.29

They say good things come to those who wait... and for Union Street Preservation Society, the Brooklyn-based folk-bluegrass revival group that has been touring across New England over the past several months, their homecoming is cause for celebration. If not only for the fact that they're playing with acclaimed bluegrass mandolinist and klezmer clarinetist Andy Statman, then just as much because singer/guitarist Dave Lieberman has finally recovered from his recent biking accident. Their debut full-length, "Spring to Rust," will be in full effect (I'm hoping to hear my fave 'Meet Me in Spring'), and from what I understand.. the band will be showing off some new pieces as well. Should be a real barnburner. See them perform April 29 with Andy Statman at The Living Room, and if you find yourself in Cambridge, MA on Friday April 27th, see them play with This Way, their roots-rock pals from Portland, ME.

Jerry Garcia Bob Wier National Anthem (ufo in background)

A stirring rendition of the National Anthem by Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Vince Welnick at Candlestick Park on April 12, 1993. Even in the later years, they could still belt it out. ALSO: A never-before-noticed UFO flyby occurs at 2:11 in this video. Note the object's unusual green hue. (Perhaps certain aliens just wouldn't miss this rendition for the world--literally...!)

national and bob wier, the bridge sessions

the bluegrass craze in brooklyn hits a new low! with the national sitting in with bob weir, with banjos and accordion.

this guy sucks at banjo. bluegrass arms race fuck yeah! you suck!

Jaimo's Jasssz Band and The Jamie McLean: Gramercy

Jaimo's Jasssz Band and The Jamie McLean band brought a good crowd to the Gramercy Ballroom starting the show around 7:30pm and going past 11pm. Just a few weeks earlier The Jamie McLean Band recorded a live CD and DVD at the Gibson Guitar Studios in NYC with Taylor Hicks (American Idol) and Jason Crosby (Robert Randolph) sitting in on two tracks. Back again in NYC McClean started out the night with little more than an introduction, inviting the crowd to come to the front of the room and “make it a party” he commented on the familiar faces in the audience and got strait to the music. The band features Jamie McLean on Guitar and vocals, Ben Mars on bass and Brian Griffin on drums. Jason Crosby sat in for the entirety of the set on keyboards and violin. Mars and McClean were high energy and all smiles while drummer Brian Griffin stayed Intently focused on the other two members, locking in a tight power trio.

The set mainly featured songs off the band's most recent album Sunday Morning (featuring John Popper from Blues Traveler and Nigel Hall of Lettuce). Starting off with the bluesy tune “Holy Water” that included a dissonant guitar solo which had McClean trading licks back and forth with Mars. The song set a tone for the night of classic 1-4-5 blues progressions with humble and at times self effacing lyrics. A highlight of the night was Reggie Pittman, Jaimo's trumpet player sitting in on a cover of Otis Redding's Mr Pitiful. Jamie McClean left The Dirty Dozen Brass Band to pursue his own sound and he certainly proved it at the Gramercy

Jaimoe is celebrating the release of his new CD "Renaissance Man," he was introduced onstage as “the original Allman Brother,” with these sort of connections he has put together a stellar group of musicians featuring Jaimoe on drums, blues hall of famer Junior Mack on vocals/guitar and Dave Stoltz (of PBR) on bass. “Rainy Night in Georgia,” featured Junior Mack's deep baritone voice, “Leaving Trunk” showcased the bands blues chops, Junior Mack broke out his best slide work playing signature Duane Allman licks on his cherry red Gibson SG.

For “Dilemma” the band stepped aside to give Jaimo the spotlight for a 5 minute drum solo. The band then stepped back onstage with the rumbling of the bass leading back into the song. The band closed the set with The Allman Brothers’ “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” with a “Jessica” tease toward the end. They closed the set with Albert Collins’ “Black Cat Bone.”
