Brotherhood of Thieves to Play Keene Music Festival

Over sixty bands will pack onto the campus of Keene State College tomorrow for the 14th annual Keene Music Festival in southern New Hampshire. On the schedule is local CT indie rock band, Brotherhood of Thieves, who will play Stage 14 at 4:00 PM. “We are really looking forward to sharing a stage with so many talented musicians,” says Nicholas Cole, lead guitarist. “It’s a great way to kick off Labor Day weekend and take part in the unique Keene community.” With over twelve performance areas, Keene offers one of the largest free music festivals in the state, which is great exposure for the diversity of bands on the bill, especially for Brotherhood of Thieves, who are excited for a change of atmosphere. “Playing bars is great,” Nick says, “but it will be nice to play to a bigger and more varied audience.”

We recently sat down with Nick to learn more about Brotherhood of Thieves, whose recent release Little Left To Lend is haunting and potent, taking the title from its fourth track “Vast and Unaware”: “I have little left to lend you/other than these tired tones.” The lyrics, mostly penned by singer Jake Wardwell are poetic, but not overwrought, and his distinguished voice is bold, existentially reminding us all in “Walls” that we are all temporary. Bassist, Jack Reynolds (“Savage Love” to friends), shines on songs like “Church” where his opening riff establishes an authoritative nostalgia of an empty, faithless place. Nick’s guitar solos are precise and well-placed, never self-indulgent or sloppy, like so many lead guitarists can be, and his switch to mandolin on “Shifting In” is a comforting gem to ease the record to a close. Drummer, Monte Arnstam, is teeming with energy and enthusiasm at every show, which makes his complex percussion sharp and on point, while Mike Antoinetti adds distinctive color to every song via the organ, a full sound that complements the artful and carefully crafted instrumentation of Little Left To Lend.

Mo’ne Davis Rules Little League Baseball World Series

The whole country is talking about 13-year-old pitcher Mo’ne Davis, who recently gave some of the best male Little League baseball players in the world a run for their money. Hailing from South Philadelphia, Mo’ne has been a star athlete at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy for several years. Though she prefers basketball, Mo’ne thought that playing baseball over the summer would be a great way to spend time with her friends. She probably had no idea it would lead to tweets from Michelle Obama, TV invites from Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon, and her face on the cover of Sports Illustrated. But talent like hers is rare, regardless of gender. A 70-mph fastball is incredible for anyone in middle school, which is comparable to a 90-mph fastball at the Major League level. More noteworthy, however, is that Mo’ne is the first girl to pitch a winning game and a shutout in Little League World Series history. At only 5’4”, 111 lbs, Mo’ne is tiny in stature, but unbelievably powerful. Her pitching mechanics are precise and make her a lethal force on the mound.

MTV’s 30th annual Video Music Awards will air Sunday night, 8/24 in Southern California, and I’ve had to Google at least half the people being featured at the event. Lucy Hale, apparently of the reality show American Juniors and Pretty Little Liars, and Charli XCX (is that a new Charlie’s Angel?), British singer/songwriter, will host the pre-show, no doubt trying to avoid any media attention that will recall last year’s twerk-atastrophe. The Parents Television Council has already demanded that MTV/Viacom not promote the same type of explicit sexual content that they did in 2013 with Miley Cyrus’ non-stop tongue and booty provocations. Still, with Nicki Minaj and Beyonce on the schedule, performances definitely aren’t expected to be on the conservative side. It seems that shock value is all the 2014 Video Music Awards will have going for them yet again since names like Sia, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande, Avicii, Angel Haze, Sam Smith, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Fifth Harmony are barely old enough to register in my brain let alone in the halls of American music television fame.

Phish Tour 2014

Phish has been on tour nearly all summer, and they’re not stopping anytime soon. The hip Vermont-based jam band will continue rocking into autumn as they play the west coast through November. Phish has been going strong since the 1980s, and their cult-like following is only increasing with each new generation of earthy-crunchy, Trader Joe’s-loving neo-hippies. Though the band has never received any type of mainstream airplay, Phish’s dedicated fan base has ensured continuous success, picking up where the Grateful Dead left off (the post-Garcia attempts of Ratdog, Furthur, and Phil Lesh & Friends try as they might, can’t replace their former frontman’s distinctive stage presence). A fusion of psychedelic rock, jazz, funk, and bluegrass, Phish’s wide-ranging sound draws substantial influence from the Dead with lengthy instrumental solos, groovy lyrics, and loyal fans who consider themselves family, or “phamily,” as they follow the band from show to show and often around the country.

1D and 5 Seconds of Summer Launch North American Tour

Murder? Mayhem? No. Just two of the hottest boy bands in the world and their most painfully vocal fans. August 1st marked the beginning of the North American leg of One Direction’s “Where We Are” tour with opener 5 Seconds of Summer, the Australian pop punk band with an equal knack for causing those high-pitched shrieks only teenage girls can make (Harry Styles allegedly cured a girl of laryngitis earlier this year after not speaking for six months because her need to squeal was that powerful). The tour opened in Toronto for two nights at the Rogers Centre, continued into the U.S. for consecutive shows in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and will move throughout the country, ending early October in Miami.
