On Saturday, March 24th, The National will join Bob Weir in a free webcast from Weir’s TRI Studios. Dubbed “The Bridge Session,” the event will be an evening of mixed musical genres, political discussion, and a showcase of modern technology. For the show, Scott and Bryan Devendorf of The National assembled a band from within Brooklyn’s independent music scene including Josh Kaufman, Thomas Bartlett, Kyle Resnick, Walt Martin, Conrad Doucette and Samuel Cohen. Their setlist with Bob Weir will include original songs by the Grateful Dead and The National, as well as cover songs with subtle, and not-so-subtle, political messages. Also in attendence will be Grateful Dead lyricist and activist, John Perry Barlow, who will be a panelist in a roundtable discussion that will take place between music sets.

The roundtable between sets will focus on issues that potentially unify people of divergent ideological perspectives – specifically, getting money out of politics and protecting the First Amendment. This roundtable will not be a closed discussion. Fans watching The Bridge Session at home will be able to ask questions to Weir, Barlow and other special guests via Twitter. It is being said that this event aims to “bridge the gaps” between people of various tastes and viewpoints. The name of the event also references TRI Studios’ location just North of the Golden Gate Bridge, and The National’s home base of Brooklyn and its equally famous bridge.

The Bridge Session will be produced by HeadCount, a non-profit organization that promotes voter registration and democratic participation. HeadCount founder Marc Brownstein, a member of the electronic rock band the Disco Biscuits and a Brooklyn native, will serve as emcee. Weir also happens to be on the organization’s Board of Directors.

Along with the world watching online, there will also be an intimate studio audience of benefactors and select media. If you would like to be in attendance as a benefector, you may acquire a ticket, here.

Have fun, and enjoy the show!

Ticketmaster leaked the 2012 Bamboozle lineup.

Looks like a Ticketmaster gaffe has leaked the Bamboozle 2012 headliners a little ahead of schedule. Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters and Blink 182 all appear in a promotional image on a page that was shared 2500+ times between Facebook and Twitter before Ticketmaster realized they’d jumped the gun on the announcement. The page has since been taken down, but the information is out there now.

Tickets are $65 for Friday passes, $75 apiece for the weekend dates or $190 for a 3-day pass. No word yet on when they’re supposed to go on sale (Ticketmaster errors aside).

Praise be to NJ Underground for spotting this.

Pete Townshend, the legendary guitarist and frontman for the classic rock band, The Who, slammed Apple’s iTunes at the beginning of this month, calling them a “digital vampire.” Speaking in Manchester in northwest England, Townshend called on the online music giant to do more to assist the artists from whom they are making so much money from. Townshend was quoted as stating the following:

“Is there really any good reason why, just because iTunes exists in the wild west Internet land of Facebook and Twitter, it can’t provide some aspect of these services to the artists whose work it bleeds like a digital vampire… for its enormous commission?”

He went on to describe how record labels and publishers had provided a range of services to artists, offering editorial guidance and how they would nurture artists creatively in the past. He did offer a possible solution though. He stated that he he feels Apple should hire 20 talent scouts “from the dying record business” to help new acts and provide financial and marketing support to the best of them.

Although I do feel that this is a great idea on one hand, I do not think that it would be a smart move for Apple overall. I feel that by doing so, Apple would open themselves up to a whole new industry that they know nothing about. Right now, they are riding a fine line, but they are still very much a computer company and not a music company. I say keep it that way and let’s try to find better ways of incorporating Apple’s iTunes into the music industry’s overall model. What are your thoughts?
