With a New Album, State Radio Play Webster Hall on Saturday

December 6th, 2012

When Dispatch went on a hiatus about a decade ago, singer-songwriter Chad Stokes Urmston knew he would keep making music, but he wanted to focus more on singing and the guitar rather than jamming and switching instruments. So he founded a new group, State Radio, that combines socially conscious songwriting with punk influences and roots-reggae rhythms. And despite Dispatch’s resurrection, State Radio (above, doing “Rash of Robberies”) are still going strong. The Boston-based trio recently released Rabbit Inn Rebellion (stream it below), and they play Webster Hall on Saturday.

Dave Matthews Band Caravan, Take Two

September 13th, 2011

Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned, so you dust yourself off and get right back up again. That’s what happened when Hurricane Irene rained out the Dave Matthews Band Caravan originally planned for late August on Governors Island. But you can’t keep a good festival down, and so the Caravan is back—this time on Friday, Saturday and Sunday on Randall’s Island. And while the lineup has changed, the bands are still killer. Dave Matthews Band (above, doing “Crush” in Central Park) plays a full set each night, and they’re joined by Dispatch, SOJA and TR3 (featuring Tim Reynolds) on Friday, Dispatch, Warren Haynes and Brandi Carlile on Saturday, and From Good Homes, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band, plus an acoustic performance by Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, on Sunday. Not too shabby, right? Governors Island tickets will be valid for the corresponding date (e.g. Friday tickets valid for Friday only), and three-day passes will be valid for all three rescheduled dates. The weather looks great and as an added bonus for your patience, you can download a free split digital 7″ from the Dave Matthews Band and Dispatch here.


Win Two Tickets to DMB Caravan on 8/27

August 12th, 2011

Are you familiar with the Head and the Heart (above, performing “Rivers and Roads” live on KEXP FM)? They’re a folk-leaning six-piece out of Seattle—Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar, percussion), Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar, percussion), Charity Rose Thielen (violin, vocals), Chris Zasche (bass), Kenny Hensley (piano) and Tyler Williams (drums)—and they’ve got an amazing live show. They’ll be here for two sold-out dates in September, at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 9/26 and at The Bowery Ballroom on 9/27. But they’re also playing with some pretty heady company as part of the DMB Caravan on 8/27, huge acts like Dave Matthews Band, Dispatch, moe., Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band and others. It’s going to be an amazing three-day festival on South Island Field at Governors Island, and The House List is giving away two tickets to Saturday’s show.
