New Orleans Jazz Festival 2012 with Eagles, Foo Fighters, John Mayer, Tom Petty

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will feature The Eagles, Tom Petty, The Foo Fighters, and John Mayer among the hundreds of acts playing the festival in 2012. The party goes down across two weekends from April 27th to May 6th, and will be spread over a dozen (or so) stages.

With so much talent loaded onto this bill, it’s impossible to pinpoint just a couple featured acts. Al Green, Bon Iver, Herbie Hancock, My Morning Jacket, Iron & Wine, Feist, Florence + the Machine, and Jill Scott are all deserving festival headliners in their own right, but they represent just a fraction of the nationally recognized talent on this year’s packed festival lineup.

I can’t seem to decide what to do for NYE. Have you decided?

Sea of Dreams New Year's Eve 2012

2012 is almost upon us, and if you’re like me and my friends, you’re bickering over 6 different New Years Eve plans floating around. Well, allow us to confuse you even more. Here’s Thrillcall’s recommendations of the best concerts on New Years Eve in San Francisco to ring in 2012:

  • When: Doors 8pm / Show 9pm
  • Where: Great American Music Hall, 859 O’Farrell (at Polk)
  • Tickets

Les Claypool’s annual New Years Eve party is a thing of legends, which explains why it sold out the Great American Music Hall weeks before the end of the year – but if you can pony up cash for resale tickets or slip in at the door, you’ll enjoy one of the weirdest parties to exist in this already-very-weird city. This should carry that extra special reunion vibe considering 2011’s Green Naugahyde was Primus’…

Damn, I love Talking Heads videos. Why aren’t videos cool like this these days? Seems to me that videos used to be more artsy and less about glitz and glam (although there are some musicians out there that make some pretty artsy videos these days). Remember the video for the Talking Heads’, “Once In A Lifetime?” It was so classically Talking Heads, so classically David Byrne, and so classically 80’s that how could you forget it? When it debuted a year after its 1980 release, “Once In A Lifetime” became one of the most rotated videos on MTV. The video was also later exhibited at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Thirty years later, it is still an iconic video. Check it out:
