Weekly Mashup – The Parent Edition, 4-17-11

by Dave Sharp on Apr 17th, 2011

We posted great stuff this week:

 

All the while in Nashville…

 

  • The patriarch of JEFF The Brotherhood, Robert Ellis Orral, reflected on parenting and the duo growing up: “Jake was intense, confident, and curious—almost magic in a way. His brother looked up to him. When Jamin was little, he wore a different costume every day, always doing characters like Luke Skywalker or Batman, and they had to be perfect.”
    Also mentioned: Diarrhea Planet

  • JEFF The Brotherhood was confirmed for Bonnarroo.

 

  • Nashville Film Festival showcased two must-see premiers: Better than Something: Jay Reatard – the story of the late Memphis musician – and Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone, which was an unusual journey for one of the most unusual bands around; to celebrate, we interviewed Norwood Fisher: http://sinizine.net/interviews/2011/04/fishbone-interview/

And beyond…

 

  • One of the coolest things I’ve discovered recently? Bridge Nine’s digital music subcriptions site.  Its cool even for the sticklers for the novelty of physical records.  Its all about convenience – anytime you want some Lemuria, Give Up The Ghost or Defeater, its at your finger tips.  Unlimited annual memberships are $30. TheB9.com

 

 

  • Also on the April 16, one of our favorite compilations and musical movements, Take Action, will release TAKE ACTIONA Compilation For Charity Volume 10 Silverstein, Bayside, Polar Bear Club, The Swellers and Texas In July will participate in this year’s tour. Don’t get too excited though, Nashville’s not on the itinerary.

 

  • Slightly Stoopid‘s “420 At The Greek” celebration featuring Bad Brains, Barrington Levy, and special guests Karl DensonDon Carlos and Del Tha Funky Homosapien on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at The Greek Theater. The band recently decided to donate all their proceeds to Music for Relief to benefit Japan aid.  Wish we could make it, what an amazing lineup.

 

  • The Wonder Years will release there next album Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing on June 14 on Hopeless Records.  They’ll be at Rocketown on 4/30.
