“I wrote ‘Leftovers’ based on the kinds of people that don’t have any original ideas of their own,” Price says in an official statement. “It could be anything from stealing a song idea, to copying someone else’s style, or dating an ex of a good friend….I also really just wanted to rhyme ‘asshole’ with ‘casserole’ and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.Read more Read more

This past Saturday, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I can attest in fact that Brooklyn Came Alive. Allow me to explain, this year for the 4th year in a row Live For Live Music hosted this amazing single day event which sure felt a ton like Jam Cruise or New Orleans Jazz Fest. I say that because within about 8 square blocks in Williamsburg, musicians from the highest echelon of the jam scene got together, in formations they are not known to play in; like one-off supergroups, brand new band debuts and epic tribute sets. The three venues in Williamsburg chosen this year were Rough Trade, Music Hall of Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bowl. I can personally attest that the best part of the Brooklyn music scene revealed itself to me at each one of these unique venues over the 12-hour period I wandered around Williamsburg chasing the groove.Read more Read more

With his legendary guitar Trigger in hand, signature red bandanna and T-shirt emblazoned with ‘Beto for Senate’ , Nelson encouraged the crowd to join in and sing along with his new song “Vote ‘Em Out.”
Before he started the politically-driven song, which is a call to action against candidates voters dislike, Nelson said “Here’s a new song we’re going to spring on y’all tonight. Take it home with you, spread it around,”
“If you don’t like who’s in there, vote ’em out / that’s what Election Day is all about / and the biggest gun we got / is called the ballot box / if you don’t like who’s in there / vote ’em out.”
