Live Music Archive iPhone App Now on iTunes

If you like live music and have an iPhone, I've got some great news for you. Yesterday the Live Music Archive iPhone App went live in the App Store on iTunes.

For just $1.99 you'll get access to over 70,000 live shows by more than 2,800 bands including Bela Fleck, Bisco, DBT, DTB, & DSO, Further, G. Love, McLovins, MMJ, North Mississippi Allstars, Phil & Friends, Robert Randolph, Soulive, STS9, SCI, TLG, and Umphrey's McGee.

And perhaps best of all, you'll have over 6,700 Grateful Dead shows (and counting) at your fingertips wherever you go!

Like most apps this one has a few shortcomings — it'd be nice to group shows by year and sort by rating or date added, and of course you can't use other apps while you're listening — but for less than $2 it's kinda hard to complain.

Download the Live Music Archive iPhone App on iTunes now.

Party with a Purpose at the 2008 ROTHBURY Festival

Sorry. You need to Flash to see this widget.

Organizers of the inaugural ROTHBURY Music Festival at the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan announced their lineup yesterday and it's quite impressive in both diversity and stature.

Among the over 70 bands confirmed to appear on 8 stages are Widespread Panic, Dave Matthews Band, Phil Lesh and Friends, John Mayer, 311, Modest Mouse, Primus, Snoop Dogg, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Thievery Corporation, STS9 and many more.

The events “purpose,” in case you were curious, is to “harness the unique energy of the live music community into a durable social movement” addressing climate change and clean energy alternatives. To that end, the festival will also include a Think Tank and Energy Fair.

The ROTHBURY Think Tank, curated by Stanford climatologist Dr. Stephen H. Schneider, will feature sessions and roundtables between leading scientists, scholars, writers, progressive political and corporate leaders, youth leaders, and entertainers.

ROTHBURY’s Energy Fair will let attendees get their hands on with cutting edge, sustainable technology and products.

Putting their money where there mouth is, organizers are taking steps to make ROTHBURY a near zero-waste concert through a variety of initiatives including replacing disposables with 100% compostables, recycling and composting, choosing clean energy, carbon-offsetting, and Green Ticket options.

Tickets for ROTHBURY go on sale February 27th and start at around $250 for a weekend pass.

UPDATE (July 6, 2008): Phish fan? Read about Trey, Mike and Fishman at ROTHBURY including setlist, photos, and more.

Fans of Phil & Friends got a nice treat last night as the band was joined by Trey Anastasio for his first complete show since his arrest last December.

While some disagreed, most reviewers were happy to see Trey up there while the setlist — with its lyrical theme of judges, jails, and arrests — seemed to make light of Trey's legal situation.

Shown here is just under three minutes of jamming from Cumberland Blues featuring Trey and Larry Campbell trading some fiery licks.

Want to hear more? Listen to the entire show at archive.org from a great Neumann source. You might also want to hit JamBase for a more detailed review of the show.

UPDATE (Oct. 27): You can now purchase and download soundboards of the show from Phil's site.
