For today’s edition of BBR, I’m picking my new copy of Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album. I received this record as a birthday gift last week, and I just can’t stop looking at it.
This vinyl edition marks the 20th Anniversary of the initial album release. As many RATM fans know, the album cover for this release features the historical photograph of the self-immolation of Thich Quang Durc. However, this new XX edition of the album features the image on the vinyl itself.
So because it is Earth Day and because people need a real swift kick in the ass when it comes to caring for our planet, I’ve chosen this album. I hope it lights a fire in you today.
Tonight we’re in Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn Bowl opening for folks rockers Cabinet! Show starts at 8pm.
See y’all there. ~Boots.
We ride to New York City today to participate in the APAP Showcase at the Rockwood Music Hall (stage 2) 9-9:30pm, but come at 7:00 if you wanna so our brother/sister bands tear it up. If your in NYC tonight come out and see the best touring bands the nation has to offer.
You can’t go wrong seeing ANY of these amazing bands, so come spend your Monday the right way at the APAP showcase tonight!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The touring lifestyle is a roller coaster ride full of ups and downs, which requires patience and grit to get through the trials between the good times. Sometimes you’re flat broke; sometimes you have to sleep on tile/concrete/wooden floors; sometimes you spend mind-numbing, endless hours in the van to play a new city, and sometimes the whiskey is gone… The payoffs, though, can sometimes be so rewarding that your decision to do this whole, crazy godddamned thing is validated a hundred times over!
Yesterday was one of those days, my friends. We left Cambridge early to play our little hearts out at the sold out Green River Festival in Greenfield, MA, and had the time of our lives! We were honored to share the bill with greats like Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, Norah Jones, the James Hunter Six, and our personal heroes, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band!
We played our set to a great audience, second line paraded a bunch of cardboard fish-bearing children and parents around the grounds, and sat in with the Dirty Dozen! We had such a good time that we decided to share some pics from the festivities with you. The tour is kicking off right, and we’ve still got almost 2 more months of shows to do, so keep your eyes out! We’re coming for ya.
Ah, what a day. We aren’t done with the northeast just yet, though!
Tonight we’ll be debuting at Rochester, NY’s Lovin’ Cup with the talented Amanda Ashley! The doors open at 6, and Amanda Ashley kicks things off at 7. Come make our last night in the northeast for this chunk of tour a party!
Where Brooklyn At?!?!
I gotta say, as far as big metropolitan cities go, this place is Beautiful! In a way it reminds me of home – a crazy mix of cultures, excellent food, great music, fun people, and lots of pride. That’s what I love most – people here take pride in the city. To me, that speaks loudest!
Here’s a small playlist dedicated to my other favorite big city – BROOKLYN!!
The Beastie Boys- No Sleep till Brooklyn
Youngblood Brass Band – Brooklyn
Gang Starr – The Place We Dwell
Yasiin Bey (aka. Mos Def) – Brooklyn
