Welcome to Seven in Seven, where we take a look at the shows coming to the area over the next week. As always, whether your musical tastes are rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, heavy metal, R&B, singer-songwriter or indie, there will always be something to discover.

Here are seven of the best on the schedule for the week of May 20:

Kathy Mattea and Suzy Bogguss — Friday at the Colonial Theater

It’s a longtime union that country music fans have been waiting for. Kathy Mattea and Suzy Bogguss, close friends and compatriots for many years, have finally joined forces to share their accumulated wealth of musical success on theater stages across the country. Aptly titled “Together at Last,” the show features both artists on stage throughout the performance, swapping songs and stories, singing in harmony and playing guitar to each other’s greatest hits. Never content to rest on their past accomplishments, the couple bring new material to these shows, as well as two careers full of humorous and heartwarming stories.

Ben Vaughn Quintet — Saturday at Ardmore Music Hall

Philadelphia-area native Ben Vaughn returns to his old stomping grounds to perform with the Ben Vaughn Quintet, then heads to Spain for a tour in support of Record Store Day’s recent release “The World of Ben Vaughn”. After seven albums — including “Rambler ’65,” which was recorded entirely in his car — and international tours, the singer-songwriter has spent more than a decade in Hollywood creating television music for “Third Rock From The Sun” and “That ’70s”. Show” and scoring numerous films.

Suicide Silence — Saturday at Reverb

Suicide Silence have come full circle and returned to their original label, Century Media Records, after nearly two decades of uninterrupted touring the world, selling hundreds of thousands of records, and cementing themselves as a pivotal band in the extreme modern. metal. Now the quintet from Riverside, Calif., has joined the label, which released their first three albums and latest single, “Speaking in Tongues.” Next month, they’ll release a deluxe edition of their 2007 debut album, “The Cleansing,” so expect a look in Reverb’s rearview mirror, as well as a punishing onslaught of new music.

May Erlewine — Saturday at City Winery

Indie folk May Erlewine has an exceptional talent for reflecting on her experiences and turning them into songs everyone can relate to, with her lyrics comforting weary hearts, offering light in the darkness to many and space for the pain and joy of being alive. Her latest album, This Month’s “Tiny Beautiful Things,” is no exception. Named after Cheryl Strayed’s book, which contains a selection of intimate letters between complete strangers, it’s a collection of songs focused on the power of connection and the emotional exchanges surrounding love, with production serving every song with a tenderness you can both hear and feel deeply.

Slow Crush — Tuesday at the Foundry

After touring pretty much nonstop around the world from late 2018 to January 2020, including tours with the likes of Pelican, Torche and Soft Kill and playing numerous festivals, Belgian rockers Shoegaze Slow Crush were forced to to make a break. off the road when COVID-19 hit. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise as they were able to fully focus on their second effort, “Hush.” The album exudes moonlit warmth through a haze of abrasive swirling layered guitars and Isa Holliday’s soothing vocals. There is a lull of nostalgic nostalgia and calm, contrasting cascading echoes of beautiful noise, showing a strong level of growth in both songwriting and musicianship.

Battles – next Wednesday at Wind Creek Event Center and May 26 at Ardmore Music Hall

New York art-rock icons Battles bring their incendiary show to the area with two dates, one in Bethlehem and the other in Ardmore. The concerts continue to support their latest full-length album, 2019’s “Juice B Crypts,” which married synthesizer loops, fierce drum patterns, and cyclical riffs into a sensory overload of information and musicality that threw everything that fans thought they knew about the group staged in the stream once again. Note that the first show will be in the first part of Primus, while in Ardmore the group will be headlining.

Sumo Cyco — next Wednesday at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center

For the past few years, Sumo Cyco from Ontario, Canada, featuring teen pop superstar/songwriter turned rock goddess Skye “Sever” Sweetnam as well as producer/guitarist Matt “MD13” Drake and bassist Oscar Anesetti, have proven themselves as one of the hardest do-it-yourself thrill stories in heavy music, enjoying an undeniable fan base with their impressive mix of metal, pop and of everything else. Now, after a short tour in support of Buckcherry, the band have embarked on a headlining tour, arriving at HMAC with the opening of Black Satellite.

Sound check

• Kathy Mattea: “455 Rocket”

• Suzy Bogguss: “One day soon”

Slow Train Ahead: Developer Plans to Turn DL&W Terminal into Waterfront Concert Hall | Music https://fiftysix.net/slow-train-ahead-developer-plans-to-turn-dlw-terminal-into-waterfront-concert-hall-music/ Sat, 14 May 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://fiftysix.net/slow-train-ahead-developer-plans-to-turn-dlw-terminal-into-waterfront-concert-hall-music/ Jeff Miers, Marc Sommer Developer Sam Savarino plans to transform the second floor of the DL&W terminal in a waterfront music venue a stone’s throw from where Canalside Live wrapped up its annual summer concert series in 2019.

Developer Sam Savarino plans to transform the second floor of the DL&W terminal in a waterfront music venue a stone’s throw from where Canalside Live wrapped up its annual summer concert series in 2019.

Savarino plans to use the site’s 40,000 square foot outdoor terrace, which he says can likely seat 4,000 to 5,000 people, for the new venue which is expected to open in 2025. Plans also include events live music inside the second floor of the building. Working with Project for Public Spaces – which created the “cheaper, lighter, faster” concept used at Canalside – Savarino is also envisioning an 8,000-10,000 square foot public market, artist studios and booths of food as well as a mobile stage for concerts, festivals and special events.

“Our intention is to create a public space of the size, scale and characteristics of successful large public spaces in other communities,” Savarino said.

Savarino said there was a need for a music room between the 400-capacity Buffalo Iron Works Music Club the developer owns in the nearby Cobblestone neighborhood and the planned 400-capacity amphitheater. 8,000 berths in the Outer Harbor.

“There’s a big hole in the middle. One of the things that’s missing with Thursday’s loss to the Square and the Canalside gigs is a place with an easy entrance and an easy place to meet people,” Savarino said.

He said he believes the new concert hall on the building’s second-story exterior deck where the train line ends — overlooking the cobblestone neighborhood on one side and the Buffalo River on the other — will fill that hole. .

The reuse of the DL&W terminal is a long time coming. The lower floor serves as Metro Rail’s Yard and Shops complex, but the second floor has been vacant since the last Erie-Lackawanna passenger train left the station in 1962.

After $52 million in preliminary improvements, the NFTA will now use the $30 million recently approved in the state budget for 2022-2023 – the estimated price for the entire work – to repair and restore the second floor. from the shed.

“We (have been) planning this together since long before Covid,” said Josh Holtzman, who started as an events manager at Buffalo Iron Works eight years ago before becoming co-owner with Savarino. Twenty6 Productions, which Holtzman runs with business partner Grace Vesneske, will handle booking and production for the DL&W concerts.

They both visited the Cherry Street Pier in Philadelphia to see how a former train station terminal has been transformed into a mixed-use event space that includes a farmers market and an outdoor concert hall.

Then, at Savarino’s suggestion, they traveled to Hong Kong to see another multi-purpose terminal that is open daily and attracts large numbers of people.

“This trip was huge, because it was emphasizing something that Sam often says – that you can do a lot with very little space, and you can also fill a big space with a lot of little things,” Holzman said.

This aligns with their goal of creating a year-round entertainment venue that can transition from using a mobile stage in the summer to moving indoors, with other activities happening simultaneously.

Holtzman and Savarino said the DL&W terminal will operate “something in the vein of what Thursday was in the square,” with plenty of parking available due to proximity to the KeyBank Center and also access to the rail.

“What other event space has a subway that comes right to its front door?” said Holtzman. “You can hop on the light rail anywhere along the line, and if you take it all the way, you’ll be dropped off right at the concert.”

Holtzman said that, like at Iron Works, there will be a commitment to local artists and bands touring for national acts as well as the ability to headline events “tailored to them.”

It’s a significant concern for regional musicians, who have long argued that a “Buffalo renaissance” must include new opportunities for them.

“On paper this all sounds super cool, but as a musician I don’t know where this is going to help our scene,” said Geno McManus, a full-time musician with more than 25 years of experience. “I don’t think a local band can get 5,000 fans unless it’s tied to an event. Opening for a National can be fun and helpful, but these slots never pay anything, so it’s a bit more of a “for fame” deal, as opposed to a “get paid to work” deal.

Still, McManus said he thinks the venue itself has a lot to like, so he’ll be watching with interest.

“I’m very interested in this project, and I think most musicians in the community will be too, as long as local participation is handled fairly,” he said.

For Amherst’s James Seney, who said he attends about 100 shows a year, the promise of an easy-to-access mid-size venue in the Cobblestone neighborhood is enticing.

“The question for everyone in the Buffalo area should always be – ‘How can I get close to the water and have a good time doing it?’ This venue seems to answer that question,” Seney said.

She played all the songs from “Sour” as well as covers of Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated” and No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” — another nod to her rock influences. (“I just think she’s the coolest,” Rodrigo said of Lavigne.) For those who know Rodrigo from the Disney+ show “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” she also offered fans a rendition of “All I Want,” a song she wrote for the show.

Although a young and relatively new artist, Rodrigo has years of experience in the scene; that onstage comfort was on display as she interacted with the crowd, at one point donning a pink cowboy hat given to her and taking a selfie video on a fan’s phone before flashing it back to the audience during “Deja Vu”. ”

Much of Rodrigo’s fan base is made up of young women his own age who relate to his ability to tap into feelings of teenage angst and romantic angst. While the crowd at the Roxy was made up mostly of young women, many had parents with them in the crowd, though more adults mingled in the lobby or bar. (I also spotted at least five people who were FaceTiming friends during the concert.)

Before almost every song, Rodrigo talked about his inspiration for writing it, which in many cases came down to heartbreak or the thought that you weren’t enough for a partner. The whole show wasn’t loud rock: Rodrigo performed a few songs alone on stage with just a microphone and a guitar.

“Driver’s License,” which Rodrigo performed on a shimmering piano under a disco ball, felt slightly out of place in third place on the setlist, compared to the high-energy opener that featured the brash pop-punk “Brutal” and “Jealousy”. , Jealousy.” The power ballad that launched Rodrigo’s pop career may have resonated closer to the end of his set, or after a slower part of the show.

The big catharsis was “Good 4 U,” the closest thing to the show and a catchy pop-rock song inspired by late ’90s and early ’00s instrumentation. As thousands of fans screamed for the premiere times every word in a live setting, it was clear that if Rodrigo’s momentum continues, the next time she returns to Atlanta, it will be in a much bigger venue.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Janet Jackson fans were on “All Nite” for the first-ever concert at Lynn Family Stadium on Saturday night.

New Edition opened the show right after the Kentucky Derby, with the six original members performing inside the stadium.

Jackson then took to the stage for around 36 songs in her first performance since 2019. Director Tyler Perry was also spotted during the concert.

It was the first gig for the Louisville football stadium with a purpose-built stage that required 30 lighting and staging trailers.

The two main components of the stadium concert were the single stage and the pitch floor. Both are designed to protect virgin turf.

85 West, the band that put on the gig, said the priority was to protect the pitch.

Chris Chartier, assistant general manager of Lynn Family Stadium, previously said it would be a big day at Lynn Family Stadium.

“It’s a really big test for us,” Chartier said.

Jackson also made an appearance at the Barnstable Brown Gala on Friday night.

Footage of a spectacular 360-degree stage for the Platinum Jubilee pop concert has been revealed for the first time.

The structure will surround the Queen Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace as 22,000 people, including members of the Royal Family, will gather to watch the BBC’s platinum night at the palace on the evening of Saturday June 4.

Artist’s impressions and moving images show the structure stretching in a circle around the landmark, with the palace in the backdrop projected with the image of a Union Flag, a large portrait of the Queen and lights beaming hundreds of feet into the night sky.

Two other stages – connected to the circular stage by a footbridge – will be built in front of the gates of the palace.

Construction began earlier this week to create 15,000 standing places around the memorial and 7,000 seats in the north and south stands.

The concert promises to feature some of the world’s biggest pop and rock stars, with a full line-up to be announced by the BBC in the coming weeks.

Hosts Kirsty Young and Roman Kemp will lead live coverage of the Platinum Party at the Palace which will be shown live on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and on the BBC.

The Party at the Palace is just one part of the four-day program of events planned for the Jubilee weekend next month.

The celebrations will begin on Thursday June 2 with the Queen’s Birthday Parade and Trooping the Colour.

The concert promises to feature some of the world's biggest pop and rock stars, with a full lineup to be announced soon.

The UK’s long tradition of celebrating royal jubilees, weddings and coronations with the lighting of beacons will continue to mark the Platinum Jubilee.

Beacons will be lit across the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories.

For the first time, beacons will also be lit in each of the Commonwealth capitals to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

On Friday June 3, a service of thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral. The service will include Bible readings, as well as prayers and hymns that will be sung by both the choir and the congregation.

During the service, the church bell, named Grand Paul, will ring. It was made in 1882 but fell silent in the 1970s due to a broken mechanism.

It was restored in 2021 and has rung eight times since then. However, this is the first royal occasion he has been stunned on.

More than 1,400 marching soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will come together in the traditional Parade to mark the Queen's official birthday, which usually takes place on the second Saturday in June.  Pictured: Trooping the Color parade in June 2017

The service will begin at 11:30 a.m. and the Grand Paul will be rung between 10:50 a.m. and 10:55 a.m., followed by a chime of bells. After the service, a reception will be held at the Guildhall.

The Palace Party will be the main event on Saturday June 4, but as part of the weekend’s central celebrations, Epsom Downs Racecourse will stage the 243rd running of the Derby.

On Sunday June 5, over 60,000 people will mark the Jubilee with their very own Big Lunch event.

Every year since the idea began in 2009, The Big Lunch encourages communities to celebrate their connections and get to know each other better, coming together in the spirit of fun and friendship.

In 2022, The Big Lunch will bring Jubilee celebrations to the heart of every community.

People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with their neighbors as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small – street party or picnic, tea and cake or barbecue in the garden. The Big Lunch gives tips and ideas for organizing an event.

The weekend of celebrations will culminate in the Platinum Jubilee Pageant with over 5,000 people from across the UK and Commonwealth and will take place against the backdrop of Buckingham Palace and the surrounding streets.

It will combine street arts, theatre, music, circus, carnival and costume and celebrate the service of Her Majesty’s reign, while honoring the collective service of people and communities across the country.

The bells of Westminster Abbey will ring to mark the start of the pageant, as they did on the day of the Queen’s coronation.

In doing so, the Queen’s Household Cavalry Mounted Band will lead the Gold State Coach along a crowded route back to Buckingham Palace.

Made of gilded wood, a thin layer of gold leaf on wood, the Queen’s coach is seven meters long, weighs four tons and stands 12 feet high. Due to its weight and suspension, it is only ever used at a walk.

Drawn by eight Windsor Gray horses, the grand carriage, led by the Household Cavalry Mounted Band, will begin the spectacular finale of the Pageant Carnival on Sunday June 5 as the procession weaves its way along the nearly two-mile route .

Over 10,000 people will be involved, including military personnel and over 6,000 volunteers, artists, key workers and 2,500 members of the public.

Well-known celebrities from music, film, sports and the arts will also take part in the competition, while the armed forces will play a key role.

A total of around 1,800 military personnel will be there representing the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army and Royal Air Force.

Adrian Evans, Pageant Master, said: “Everywhere you look, in the gilded carvings and painted panels, in the uniforms of postilions, grooms, footmen, attendants and mounted guards, there is a rich tradition and history .

“It will be a unique spectacle that we have the privilege of opening the Pageant with which it will set the tone for the many, many spectacular venues to come.”

Stray Kids rocked sparkly stages at a 3-day concert in Seoul!

Kick off Stray Kids 2nd “MANIAC” World Tourthe group performed three concert dates from April 29 to May 1. On the last day, the concert was also broadcast on the Beyond LIVE platform.

As a result, the face-to-face gigs stage the band’s return to the concert scene after two years and five months since “District 9: Unlock.”

All seats were sold out quickly, and even limited-visibility seats were opened, proving the band’s ticket-selling power.

The title of the tour is derived from the main title of Stray Kid’s 6th mini-album, odd released on March 18 this year. A well-thought-out and well-prepared setlist was presented, extolling the group’s charms and uniqueness.

Kicking off their opening scene Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and IN pumped up the crowd with “Maniac,” “Spider Web,” “Easy,” and “ALL IN.”

The performance of “Red Lights,” a unit song by Bang Chan and Hyunjin, from the Noeasy 8-member album, warmed up the crowd even more.

Greeting the fans, the members were all happy and grateful to have reunited with STAY after a long wait. They assured fans how they prepared for the stages to share the fun and excitement.

Afterwards, Stray Kids continued their explosive performances with fan-favorite tracks such as “Back Door” and “Side Effects” along with other popular songs from their previous albums.

As a result, the scene featuring 15 songs as well as the band’s session got the crowd excited which matches the band’s energy.


Live Group + Unit Scenes

Dressed in traditional hanboks, the Stray Kids look like Joseon young masters with irresistible charm. They went on to rave about performances of “Thunderous”, “DOMINO” and “God’s Menu” in the live band version.

Afterwards, unit scenes ensued where Bang Chan, Reno, Seungmin, and IN sang STAYs along with the sweet ballad “Waiting For Us.” Next, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, and Felix showed off their hip and stylish charm for “Muddy Water.”

Towards the end of the concert, Stray Kids showed no restraint in bringing frantic moments through their music.

“Hellevator,” “Double Knot,” “TOP,” and “Victory Song” ignited a stunning combination of light effects and intense rock sound, elevating the already energized audience even further.

Stray Kids had a significant time hearing the screams of the live audience after a long time. The audience responded with loud applause and cheers to their performances on stage.

At the end of the three-day concert in Seoul, maknae IN shared how much the group wanted to be on stage.

“The stays are like the water of life for us. Thank you for giving us a precious moment that we will never forget, and thank you for always being by our side.

Chef Bang Chan said, “It’s been 10 years since I came to Korea. There were times when I was alone, but I was able to get this far thanks to my limbs and my STAY, who always comfort me. I want to say thank you. As a more reliable leader, I will always be by your side. I like You.”

Meanwhile, Stray Kids, who successfully completed the Seoul performance, are preparing for their world tour. They will visit key cities in the United States and Japan from June to July.

Omar Apollo Brings Mariachi and Corridos to Sanctuary: Concert Review https://fiftysix.net/omar-apollo-brings-mariachi-and-corridos-to-sanctuary-concert-review/ Sat, 30 Apr 2022 18:28:00 +0000 https://fiftysix.net/omar-apollo-brings-mariachi-and-corridos-to-sanctuary-concert-review/ With three EPs and a full studio album to its credit, Omar Apollo’s “Desvelado” tour setlist carefully selects the musician’s projects.

With three EPs and a full studio album to its credit, Omar Apollo’s “Desvelado” tour setlist carefully selects the musician’s projects. But the latest addition to his catalog — the masterful and eclectic “Ivory,” with its creative immersion and genre flair — is what prompted the Mexican-American singer to go wild at his sold-out show in Los Angeles. at the Shrine Friday night.

A wall of synchronized screams greeted the 24-year-old onstage as the soft strums and guitar melodies of his opener, “Talk,” swept through the crowded room. Despite struggling with initial sound issues, Apollo kicked off the show with exuberant swagger, playing his own guitar riffs for the first half of the night.

Dressed in matching oversized blood orange pants and jacket, Apollo performed songs from his early discographies, like 2020’s “Useless” from his “Apolonio” mixtape, and some from his debut EP, “Stereo” — like the lingering “Erase” and the unrequited love anthem, “Ugotme”.

Midway through, Apollo summed up the songs for “Ivory” beginning with “Killing Me,” which saw the singer transition smoothly between the track’s bilingual lyrics and distorted guitar licks. His new songs have been made strong enough to reach the tails of the stretched Sanctuary hallway, giving fans unparalleled perspective and infectious energy.

That fans were watching and shouting at it was almost irrelevant; Apollo was fully in his element, thrusting his hips and twirling across the stage, spitting out lines from the stuffed flow of “No Good Reason.”

The highlight of the night, however, began when the ultimate emblem of Mexican pride – the country’s red, white and green flag – ended up on Apollo’s back just as he had intended,” Let’s get into our real Mexican shit.”

Suddenly, an all-female mariachi band took the stage to help Apollo’s emotionally charged ranchera, “En El Olvido.” Gritos erupted among clusters of fans as Apollon’s elastic howls and controlled vibratos filled the hall – an effect augmented by traditional trumpets and strings. Apollo kept the passion at an all-time high, following the mariachi performance with his 2020 corrido, “Dos Uno Nueve (219).”

The rest of the gig went down as a party in its own right with Apollo taking a moment to catch his breath to tell the crowd “this is the greatest show I’ve ever played”.

White confetti showered the room as his falsetto voices gushed out for the set’s closing songs: his collab with Kali Uchi “Bad Life,” “Want U Around” and, of course, the intoxicating “Tamagotchi” produced by Neptunes.

As an encore, Apollo couldn’t resist replaying the illustrious and hard-hitting “Tamagotchi” with his team and friends by his side on stage. As fans dispersed for the night, “Tamagotchi” echoed through car speakers in crowded parking lots full of content (and sleepy) Angelenos.

List of sets:

Speak
Useless
To erase
you got me
Kill me
No good reason
Bounce
beat me
I am waiting for you
In El Olvido
Dos Uno New (219)
frio
Evergreen
petrified
Invincible
Tamagotchi
Suicide bomber
bad life
Mr neighbor
I want you there
