People Noise - CD Release Party

This coming Saturday local band People Noise will return home to play a CD release party at Headliners Music Hall. The CD has been out since June 12th and that makes this party 18 days late but as they say, better late than never.

Playing along with People Noise will also be The October from Calvert City, KY; Parlour Boys from Kentucky as well. One Less Reason, hailing from Memphis, TN will also be in attendance.

Doors are at 8pm and the cost is a measly 7 bucks so get your ass out there and see some live music!

The Best Concert of All Time.

The following is from Ron Whitehead:

The Best concert I've ever had anything to do with. You've got to understand. Since childhood I've attended, performed at, produced, and participated in tens of thousands of concerts round the world. Last night, June 3rd 2007, The Rudyard Kipling Benefit Concert was The Best.

The Best Concert of All Time.

There are many reasons why it was The Best Concert of all time. I'll name a few. Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Sarah Elizabeth Whitehead are my two favorite singers. They are two of The Best singers songwriters musicians. But there is more. They have a rare necessary element: deep passionate compassionate hearts. They have an innate inherent wisdom that is both ancient and childlike. All those elements birth a charisma that is electrifying. The energy at The Rud was electric. 4-hour concert. The audience in rapt attention. There is more. The union of male (Jim) and female (Sarah) energy produced a duet unlike any other duet, past or present. Plus. No singers have the courage or ability to go where Jim and Sarah went at the Live at The Rud concert. They covered the spectrum of musical genres: from acappella mountain to oldtime to country to blues to jazz to folk to soul to rock to R&B, from broken hearted spirituals to steamy romance, and more. In one concert Jim and Sarah proved that they are master singers in any genre. The audience was mesmerized. Not one person, including the performers, will ever be the same. That includes Carl Broemel (amazing), Andy Cook (brilliant), and me. The night was more than special, it was pure alchemy. We were transformed transported to new realms. Spirit and sex became one energy. The Holy Spirit The Great Spirit moved in us and through us. The Rud was filled with angels with spirits. We heard angels sing, perform. We will never be the same. My heart is open. Tears of joy. Amazing Grace. Thanks.

Quick Rudyard Kipling Benefit Show Review

I just wanted to post real quick and let everyone know how lucky I feel that I got to see this. It really was a special occasion that I will never forget. Hopefully we did the Rud some good. Tomorrow we will do a full post with pics and more details.

• Jim James was on stage almost the whole time. Just Under 4 hrs.
• Carl Brommel played on most of the MMJ songs but not all.
• Tons of covers.
• Two new Songs (positive about one, the other could have been a cover I didn't recognize)
• We all wore blind folds for a couple songs.

Keep your fingers crossed about a recording surfacing.

PS: The second episode of the podcast is almost complete. It should be out by the end of the week.

A couple pictures to tide you over...
