What else is going on?
Dick Dale is embarking on a 25-city tour across the US! While this may make all men wearing “Old Guys Rule” shirts jump with joy - not so fast. Unfortunately, the beloved artist who crafted the sound of the surf scene in the ‘60s and ‘70s is doing so to pay for medical expenses he needs to stay alive. He’s touring with rectal cancer, renal failure, diabetes and massive vertebrae damage...oh boy. Sad, but at the same time motivating - I hope all fans can come together to show support.
Lollapalooza in Chicago happened this past weekend and I don’t know too much about what went on, but something specific caught my eye that I thought was a bit funny. Apparently those who viewed the Brooklyn group, Wet, perform, felt the same as we did when we saw them perform at Capitol Hill Block Party. Hard to explain, but some dude at Consequence of Sound knows what’s up.
Lastly, I can’t write about music news without mentioning that Quantic dropped his album, A New Constellation, last week...just saying.
