Hip local news…Fishbone @ Attucks Theater 2/23/13

This news comes right after watching this great documentary on Netflix called ‘Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone‘.  I recommend it.

Legendary band Fishbone will be preforming at the Attucks Theater in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, February 23rd, 2013.

This is part of the Attucks Theater’s Discovery Music Series.

Last time I saw Fishbone perform was at the Boathouse in Norfolk, Virginia 1997. They were part of the ‘Nuttstalk 19 Nutty 7’ tour. It was Fishbone, with opening act John Frusciante (of Red Hot Chili Peppers when he first quit the band and went solo…amazing) and Trulio Disgracias. Here’s a description:

“According to Addicted To Noise, Fishbone’s Norwood Fisher will be taking his roving, roaming P-Funk-inspired funk circus on the road from mid-April through early June with a lineup of bands that includes everyone from ska upkeepers the Skeletones to the reformed Thelonious Monster.  Nuttstalk ’97, which will feature DJ sets in between bands, finds Fisher sharing the stage with Joi, Weapon of Choice,  Super 8, former Red Hot Chili Pepper John Frusciante,  the Street Walkin’ Cheetas and the supergroup Trulio Disgracias.  This time around Trulio will include three members of Fishbone,  three ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers and past and current members  of Weapon of Choice, Spearhead, the Untouchables, Super 8,  Circle Jerks and P-Funk.”

I remember Angelo using some giant full-page size rubber stamps and stamping and signing books of his ‘poetry’ at the merchandise table. I wish I would have bought one of those! I wasn’t such a ‘book-geek’ back then as I am now.

Hip Music…Lollapalooza Aug 3rd, 4th, & 5th

Today starts the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, Illinois. I’m pretty bummed I can’t be there, but they are doing a live webcast on YouTube. I’m going to check that out. Here’s a link to their channel –> YouTube

Looks like a great line-up. I used to see Lollapalooza every year (sometimes in more than one city each year) when it was still a touring festival. Turns out Perry Farrell, the founder, didn’t like playing in the corporate owned amphitheaters. Good for him, but bad for me because I don’t get to the Chicago area that much. I have it on my Bucket List though.

Can’t believe it’s twenty years old now. I’ve seen the tour first in Cleveland, Ohio..then Columbus, Ohio…Virginia Beach and the Washington, DC area. Good times…

I’ve seen the shows in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, missed the 1996 show, but saw it again in 1997. Lollapalooza then took a five year break. I went again in 2003. I had tickets to the 2004 show, but that was cancelled, and that’s when the festival was permanently moved to Chicago. Haven’t seen it since then.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 inductees

I recently (around 12/7/11) saw a news article on-line about the up-coming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2012.

I was very excited to see that ‘hipsters’ the Beastie Boys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Donovan (as well as Guns N’ Roses and others) have been inducted!

I also read that the induction concert has been moved back to Cleveland, Ohio instead of New York City where it has taken place for a few years.

Well….I’m originally from Columbus, Ohio and thought that this would be the ultimate concert to see on a visit ‘home’.

I just took a look at RockHall.com website to verify the date, and saw that the concert has already SOLD OUT on Dec 17th!

The concert is taking place on April 14th 2012 at Cleveland’s historic Public Hall.

If anyone goes, and would like to report back to HipsterApproved.net with all the details…that would be great!
