BLACK MOUNTAIN’s Polaris Prize Gala Performance + babysitting tips!

Every year Canada’s Polaris Prize has a very lovely Gala to honor the nominees of the award. This year, Black Mountain’s “In the Future” was nominated, so the band attended the award ceremony and played their song “Tyrants” to a venue full of industry professionals eating dinner at tables and sippin’ on sparkly stuff.

Canada’s CBC also nominated the band in two categories for their annual Bucky awards.

1. Best Advice From an Artist: Steve McBean on “babysitting tips”
2. Best Hook: “Stormy High”

If you’ve used any of Steve’s babysitting advice in any of your endeavors OR love the hook in “Stormy High”, get on over to the CBC website and VOTE! Voting begins today and ends November 28th. Winners will be announced in special live broadcast on December 17.

ONEIDA Celebrate Success of “Wedding” Performance, Plan More Live Dates

On June 13th and 14th, ONEIDA showcased a complete performance of their 2005 album “The Wedding” at The Kitchen in New York, accompanied by a string quartet, avant-garde pianist, and multimedia art direction. According to those who were there, the “unique hybrid of multimedia concert and non-didactic rock opera” was, in a word, awesome. Check out the reviews from Urb and Vanity Fair

Oneida also kicked off the 2nd day of the Terrastock Festival this weekend, this time opting to rouse the crowd with some heavy, heavy jams. After hypnotizing them with 15 minutes of the classic “Sheets Of Easter”, the band launched into the live debut of “Preteen Weaponry”, their 40-minute opus to be released on Jagjaguwar in early August.

ONEIDA To Perform “The Wedding” With String Quartet In New York June 13 & 14

On Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, The Kitchen in New York City presents a live multimedia concert featuring a complete performance of ONEIDA’s 2005 album, “The Wedding”. Oneida will be backed by a string quintet under the direction of Brian Coughlin, who created the arrangements for the original recording, along with celebrated pianist Emily Manzo. In this evening, conceived for The Kitchen and directed by Nick Hallett, “The Wedding” is re-envisioned within the tradition of the song cycle as an abstract narrative. Multimedia art direction is provided by Mighty Robot A/V Squad, a longtime provider of Oneida’s lightshow. The work will be presented as a unique hybrid of multimedia concert and non-didactic rock opera.
