Two September concerts at Wrigley Field got the go-ahead from a City Council panel today as the Cubs continue to look for a pinch hitter to step in for the canceled Elton John-Billy Joel show in July.
Though the Cubs have not announced who will play at the ballpark Friday, Sept. 17, and Saturday, Sept. 18, Ald. Tom Tunney pushed an ordinance to allow the team two additional night events beyond the 30 night baseball games allotted each year.
Last month, sources said the Dave Matthews Band, Paul McCartney and Phish were under consideration for the September shows.
With Phish seemingly in a good place, Gordon is happy to get his solo band — he’s still touring under “Mike Gordon” but is looking for a band name — back on the road, before he returns to working on the new record.
“Our last tour just started to have this ferociousness about it, when we were taking the songs and finding the life of the songs, but we were also kind of breaking against the structure of the song and finding the edge that cuts against the structure, and that made it really exciting for me,” he says. “And so I’m really glad that we’re about to do it again.”
Mike and his band spent last week in rehearsals in the mountains of Vermont for their upcoming 8-date March run, which begins with a sold out show this Friday, March 5th in Troy, NY. Wanting to give fans a unique glimpse into the practice space, we're releasing a track that grew out of the session.
Mike explains: "On the first day of practices, we decided to come to the studio and invite the muse to control us for a day. I led a guided meditation in which we imagined tapping into universal energy that connects from the spheres, through us, and into the center of the Earth, and then we imagined being on stage as the music played the band and the coolest sound we could fathom came out. Each band member then described his aural vision, directing the others to create it. And this little sampling is Craig Myers' vision, entitled 'Birth Of The Universe.' He described ambience wallowing from nothingness, and then mouthed out a rhythm that Todd could then interpret, helping to kick the thing into rock-ass gear. Nice work, Craig."
You can download the track absolutely free at mike's website.
