The National + Grateful Dead - April 10, 2012

We just want to point out that this happened. The Bridge Session, a collaborative concert involving Bob Weir, members of The National, The Walkmen, Takka Takka, Yellow Birds and Thomas "Doveman" Bartlett took place in Northern California (and on the internet) in late March. No it wasn't a collective hallucination. You can read about The National's continuing interest in reinterpreting the Dead legacy elsewhere on the internet, or this more personal take on drummer Bryan Devendorf's appreciation for both the Dead & Phish. Despite our punk & DIY roots here at Brassland, we have erected a big tent all up in here -- and if you go back far enough you sort of start to realize almost all musicians start off doing the kind of crazy DIY-style s**t where our hearts lie. (If we're lying we're dying!)

Anyhoo, if you're short on time, may we suggest you just kick down and chillax to this YouTube grab of the entire concert. If you're even shorter on time we're particularly fond of the band's take on Cass McCombs "Love Thine Enemy" which starts up at the 4:33 mark. (And yes, that time code is eerily familiar.) Finally, for all the New Yorkers in the house -- Further are at the Beacon Theater through next week. They have to put someone in there when we're not using it.

We couldn't report on everything unless we turned www.brassland.org into a 24-7 Jherek Bischoff news service. (Come to think of it, for something like that experience you should check out his Twitter feed, or ours.) Anyhoo, there are two pieces of particularly BIG NEWS to announce at the moment, so let us break the drought: (1) ....continue....
