Performers at this Event
The Black Crowes
The Black Crowes Remove performer from this event
At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely....
The Smashing Pumpkins
The Smashing Pumpkins Remove performer from this event
Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, Smashing Pumpkins were the group least influenced by traditional underground rock. Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars....
The Offspring
The Offspring Remove performer from this event
The Offspring's metal-inflected punk became a popular sensation in 1994, selling over four million albums on an independent record label. While the group's credentials and approach follow the indie rock tradition of the '80s, sonically the Offspring sound more like an edgy, hard-driving heavy metal band, with their precise, pulsing power chords and Dexter Holland's flat vocals....

Coming on the scene with a throwback style that betrayed his years, Pittsburgh-based rapper Mac Miller had just turned 18 when he spent 2010 making his name through mixtapes and video sharing websites....

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros Remove performer from this event
Formed in 2007 by Ima Robot frontman Alex Ebert after a brief period of existential crisis, the cultish 11-piece indie rock outfit Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros draw their inspiration from the communal musical communities that peppered Southern California (specifically Laurel Canyon) with positive vibrations during the '60s and early '70s....

(no rating) Jul 24, 2008 - MusicLover01 on The Black Crowes
Eating Crowe

The vibe was just not there. I'm sure Ed and Marc are glad to know that the Crowes are seriously hurting without them. Neither Chris or Rich seemed "on". Luther's guitar solos just were not good friends. I've seen this band all over the country over the last 20 years almost and never have been let down until towards the end of last year for the first time. I gave them one more chance & regret it. I heard a lot of people saying stuff like "they should bring back Marc" I would hate to see that with his solo/producing career really starting to blossom like it is. Believe me, the Crowes are missing that old chemistry. Sorry guys.

Selling themselves short!

I mean really, I think they can be a little less modest. They're really stupid.

pick your pocket full of sorrow, run away with me tomorrow

O! Nostalgia! The Pumpkins are, in a mushy and gross sentimental way, my favorite band. They were my first favorite, and for years seemed to mirror my changing interests (Billy started wearing dresses and apeing Marlene Dietrich hand gestures at the exact moment Glam rock and pre-code film infiltrated my brain... creepy).

The band always seemed like a bit of a secret, even when they were huge. Small awkward songs that seemed so big. Gut-wrenchingly teenage lines that will always hold an eternal truth (see title). Snarling guitars exploding out of lullaby-esque atmospheric waves (*the* band of the ADD generation...). A man whose hair disappeared as he became more and more famous (mirror images of Samson and Icarus rolled into one, really). Beautiful!

"Siamese Dream" stands as an angsty love letter to the human race... the most bitter songs are also the sweetest. "Adore" is just the best album ever, OK? Dancing out of tombs and into wombs on each cloudy day.

Billy Corgan is a genius, and enough of an egomaniac to think he actually matters. So he does.

"Zeitgeist" is a really good album. It's different. A band who no longer remembers who they were... but that's good. Times change. Better to forge anew than become The Police or Fleetwood Mac (*cough*). It's not their best, and maybe some of that heart and awkwardness is lost in a guise of maturity... but it's still there somewhere. Lines like "Of course I love you, baby / Coz I'm alive" couldn't be topped by Bolan, Dylan, or St. Augustine. And "Stellar" is, like, one of the best songs ever!

It's rock n roll, OK?! It's not a science. Sometimes it has to suck to make it special. And for that very reason, Billy Corgan is the patron saint of a generation's inner 14 year olds, for better or worse. re still amazing.

Nothing like them

One of my favorite groups of all time. Their music ranges from richly overdriven, symphonic guitar riffs to subdued, melancholy tunes that somehow evoke the feeling of old motion pictures for me. Although they have been on a downward spiral for some time now, the music I grew up with still holds a special place in my heart.
