The 18th Annual Radio 92.9 EarthFest will return to The MA Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Hatch Memorial Shell in Boston on May 21 2011 with a stellar line-up that includes LIVE’s Ed Kowalczyk, OK Go, Sponge and Atomic Tom. Presented by Whole Foods Market, the free festival is a celebration for the Earth, showcasing national and local music acts, environmentally friendly products and local non-profit environmental organizations.




Atomic Tom
Lead vocalist Luke White began writing demos in 2006 with Philip Galitzine on bass, adding guitarist Eric Espiritu in 2007. By early 2009, drummer Tobias Smith completed the circle. "We knew we had the green light," says Luke.

After countless New York area shows, ATOMIC TOM started to hear their lyrics shouted back at them at shows, "We knew the time was right for a full-length record."

From the exhilarating electronica-meets-arena-rock shuffle of “Let Let Go”, the epic romanticism of "We Were Never Meant To Be", and the hauntingly delicate "Play That Dirty Girl", ATOMIC TOM’S debut LP demonstrates remarkable musical ability and diversity, married with an innate sense of how to connect with an audience on a grand scale. "It’s possible to reach each and every individual in an eighty thousand seat stadium," claims Philip. "You can make an enormous, towering sound and still say something deeply meaningful and musical.” They plan to do just that.

The band's first single, “Take Me Out”, neatly summarizes the theme of the record: “It’s a vulnerable song. It’s about letting people into your life, letting people rescue you,” explains Luke. “Admitting that you need that, and then asking for it…that’s a very difficult task, though it’s something everyone goes through at some point.

Sponge
It's a classic music industry tale: musicians who have been struggling for years at success in the business are suddenly "discovered" and considered an "overnight sensation." "This doesn't feel like an overnight sensation to me," Vinnie Dombroski told Rolling Stone. Dombroski is the front man for the band Sponge, who exploded onto the music scene in 1994 with their debut album Rotting Pinata. The five members of Sponge have worked hard to find their place in the spotlight and know that in this fickle world they could just be a flash in the pan. However, they plan to be much more than that.

Sponge hails from Detroit, Michigan, a city that for a while bred many star musicians. But as Dombroski explained in Circus, "There's a real lack of opportunity [in Detroit]. Because of that people turn to music as a form of sustenance." That's exactly what all of the members of Sponge did starting in the mid 1980s. Growing up in the same working-class area, they've known each other most of their lives, although they played in different bands on the local scene.

Ok Go
In the year since EMI issued OK Go’s acclaimed third album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, the Los Angeles quartet has gone from being a rare young light on a major label to arguably the world’s most bleeding edge independent outfit. You probably know the bit about the treadmills by now (if not, you can read Ira Glass’s account below), but one can authoritatively say that those trusty treadmills shot the band into both better health and a technicolor zone beyond the hoary indie-versus-major debate.

Billboard called them “trailblazing,” the head of Apple’s marketing said they were “the first post-internet band, the first band to use the internet as a medium of art, not just commerce.” BusinessWeek praised their new model of “proactive creative types… looking beyond traditional parameters to get support for their work.” OK Go’s project is one of the modern age, of unlimited possibility, where infectious songs, inventive videos, surprising live shows, and an articulate, forward-thinking back-end combine into a total work by a defiantly do-it-yourself band without a shoestring budget. The band says they just like “making stuff.”

LIVE's Ed Kowalczyk
As the lead singer of Live, Ed Kowalczyk fronted one of the most successful American post-grunge bands of the ‘90s, coming to prominence with their 1994 sophomore album, Throwing Copper. With his bald head and intense eyes, Kowalczyk cut a distinctive figure, but what separated him from other ‘90s alt-rockers was his utter earnestness: he adopted U2’s open-hearted stance as his own, preferring sincerity to irony.

Live released seven albums between 1991 and 2006 before splitting, with Kowalczyk launching a solo career in 2010 with Alive. Alive was Ed Kowalczyk’s first major activity outside of Live in his professional career.

Mark Wahlbergs latest project... "Ted" just started filming and also Kevin James is filming "Here Comes the Boom"

been getting extra casting notices on both for a couple weeks.... so likely doing locations for one of those...


april 27th

We first heard about the movie Ted more than a year ago and now it looks like it is finally going to begin filming in Boston tomorrow!
In the movie, Mark Wahlberg stars as a man whose childhood teddy bear comes to life and remains his best friend into adulthood, causing rifts in many of his other relationships. Ted marks the feature directorial debut of Seth MacFarlane and also stars Mila Kunis, Joel McHale and Jessica Stroup.
Tomorrow, they will be filming on Treamont St in Bay Village where they have reportedly turned the building into a Liberty Rent-a-Car.

We’ve also reported that they will be shooting at 441 Atlantic Ave in Swampscott, MA on May 4, 5, and 6.
On May 12th they will be filming at Charlie’s Sandwich Shoppe in Boston and on May 18th and 19th they will be filming at Chandler and St. Charles streets in Boston’s South End.

**********

Here Comes The Boom, which is currently filming in Quincy, MA, isn’t just a funny movie, its a green one too.
The set of the Kevin James film has been designed to reduce waste and be more eco-friendly.
Plastic water bottles and non-biodegradable paper cups have been banned while costumes are sent to an environmentally-friendly dry-cleaner. They have also made several sets using sustainable bamboo.

A production spokesperson recently said, “We strive to reduce waste and recycle as much as possible. Eliminating water bottles reduces the transportation of those bottles and excess waste after use. Similarly, dry cleaning, energy generation and sustainable lumber are a focus due to their supply chain impacts.”
It’s great to hear about an entire production that is trying to help the planet, hopefully more films will adopt the same practice!

Posted ImageMargaret Glaspy
Born and raised in rural Northern California, Margaret Glaspy, singer/songwriter came to Boston a few years ago on a grant from the National Foundation for the Advancement of Arts, and plays regularly at Club Passim and the Lizard Lounge. Her credits also include performances at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and New York City's Ziegfeld Theatre. She counts Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell, and James Taylor among the artists who have won her old soul at a young age.
Posted Image
Dietrich Strause
Dietrich Strause has been drawing in Boston audiences with poetic lyrics brought to life through his flowing finger-picking guitar, a mellifluously woven viola, and the pulse of a roots heartbeat. His band features of some of the Boston area's finest musicians, Billy Beard (Session Americana), Jim Larkin (Jesse Dee), and Laurence Scudder (The Ryan Montbleau Band).




Posted Image

Darlingside
Darlingside is a string rock quintet, based in Northampton, Mass., that features lush five-part harmonies, classical cello-violin duets and compelling break-beats. The band keeps audiences on their toes with their exuberant stage presence, spontaneous a cappella, frequent instrument switches, mind-boggling covers and a widely eclectic, cross-genre blend of original material.

Posted ImageSarah Borges
Known to many nationwide due to relentless touring with her fiery rockin' band, The Broken Singles, Sarah has drawn praise throughout the country, including accolades from the Boston Globe ("the playfully charismatic Borges truly shines"), Time Out New York ("irresistible") and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ("just a whole lot of fun"). The band received raves in the New York Times for their "vivacious" live show and Borges was awarded "Local Female Vocalist of the Year" at the 2008 Boston Music Awards.

Posted ImageRyan Fitzsimmons
While still a relative newcomer to Providence, Rhode Island, Ryan Fitzsimmons was nominated for Best Folk Act for 2004, and in 2007, he was awarded "Best Male Vocalist" in the Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll. He has performed at the Newport Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and many other venues throughout New England, including Cambridge's TOAD and The Lizard Lounge. He is currently finishing his second CD with David "Goody" Goodrich (Chris Smither and Peter Mulvey).

Posted ImageFandango
Fandango is as much a spiritual renewal as it is a reinterpretation of some of the best soul, blues, gospel, and Americana music ever written. At their weekly Wednesday night residency at TOAD, Fandango frontman Fred Griffeth leads this congregation into soul and R&B righteousness! Fandango also includes Steve Cuoco on bass, Chris Anzalone on drums, Cliff Spencer on organ with Bob Enik and Kevin Belz sharing guitar duties.

Synopsis:

Academy Award-winner Errol Morris’ TABLOID follows the much stranger-than-fiction adventures of Joyce McKinney, a former “beauty queen” whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her across the globe and directly onto the front pages of the British tabloid newspapers. Joyce’s crusade for love and personal vindication, as illustrated by Morris, takes her through a surreal world of gunpoint abduction, manacled Mormons, oddball accomplices, bondage modeling, magic underwear and dreams of celestial unions. This notorious affair is barking mad. Equal parts love story, film noir, brainy B-movie and demented fairy tale, TABLOID is a delirious meditation on hysteria – both public and personal – from a filmmaker who continues to break down and blow open the documentary genre with his penetrating portraits of eccentric and profoundly complex characters. In TABLOID, Morris concocts another jaw-dropping portrayal, this time of a phenomenally driven woman whose romantic obsessions and delusions catapult her over the edge into scandal-sheet notoriety and an unimaginable life. Long before the days of Lindsay, Britney and the 24-hour news cycle, Joyce McKinney reigned as the ensnaring Femme Fatale accused of sexual defiance. In TABLOID, she is back, and Morris offers up his best guilty treasure.

This could be pretty sweet... band list pending.

Somerville has one. Cambridge has one. Now it's our turn.


Jamaica Plain has no shortage of talented and diverse musicians, composers, and performers. On Saturday, August 20, they will have a chance to come together for one incredible day of music. They will be able to listen to each other perform and celebrate the incredible musical nexus that is Jamaica Plain. The festival will feature all genres, all ethnicities, all persuasions, all ages. It's for all of us.

There is deep pride Jamaica Plain. It manifests in one-of-a-kind Mom and Pop stores, restaurants, bars, art galleries, sports leagues, and political, cultural, and historical groups.


The musicians that live in Jamaica Plain have played all over the city and country. Despite the thriving scene that manifests itself in a few local venues and basement shows, there hasn't been an opportunity for these artists to get together locally on a large scale.

The Jamaica Plain Music Festival's goal is to celebrate the diverse and creative sounds of many of our local musicians.

The concept of the Festival was developed by a group of long-standing residents. We have recently formed a 501c3, nonprofit corporation, and Board of Directors.

This festival is coordinated by a group of friends who are committed to music and the arts and Jamaica Plain. Our goal is to make this an annual event that will grow in size and attendance over the years.
