Who else do you love? [26 Sep 2007|01:51pm]

 I'm a big fan of Culver City Dub Collective too. They have a contest going on now- show your “bad reaction” and you could win a signed Yamaha snare drum, CDs and other cool stuff. They’re pretty funny, check out the reaction of the girl who gets hit w/ a fish lol http://www.brickfish.com/music/culvercity?tab=1&m_CulverCityBadReaction

Who else do you guys like??

BEN HARPER - Brisbane Concert [21 May 2006|09:05am]

[ mood | ecstatic ]

Hi guys, was anyone at the Brisbane riverstage concert last night?

I've got some pretty good photos as I was right up the front, if anyone wants them.

It was such a good show. He did about 25 songs, and Jack Johnson rocked up for one.
He even took the Australian flag we held out for him.

Go and listen to a sample of Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals' cover of The Beatles song "Michelle"

Australian's should check out the Bluesfest line up.

The Blind Boys of Alabama have recently been announced, so fingers crossed for Ben (a long shot, but there is still hope)

Amazing line up regardless!

by Ben Harper

Not talkin' 'bout a year
no not three or four
I don't want that kind of forever
in my life anymore
forever always seems
to be around when it begins
but forever never seems
to be around when it ends
so give me your forever
please your forever
not a day less will do
from you
People spend so much time
every single day
runnin' 'round all over town
givin' their forever away
but no not me
I won't let my forever roam
and now I hope I can find
my forever a home
so give me your forever
please your forever
not a day less will do
from you
Like a handless clock with numbers
an infinite of time
no not the forever found
only in the mind
forever always seems
to be around when things begin
but forever never seems
to be around when things end
so give me your forever
please your forever
not a day less will do
from you

(Got to be my most fav ben song right now)

Yesterday I brought Ben Harper's 'The Will To Live', haven't stopped listening to it and I am really enjoying the version of number three on it- I'm used to the live from Mars version.
Anyway I really like this CD, very mellow.
What do you guys think about it?

Tonight's show [22 Jul 2005|04:51pm]

[ mood | excited ]

I'm about to leave for the tonight's Ben Harper concert (Royal Oak, MI). I'm sooooo excited for it... Iits general admission so I'm getting there as early as I can. its at a smaller capacity venue (only 1700 I believe) so it should have an even more intimate feel and there probably won't be a bad seat (or standing room) in the housel. anyone else going to any shows on the current tour?

The community's been a little dull lately, so let's liven things up.
Here's a 40 minute performance by Ben and the band at a radio station.

You'll need Realplayer for this...

Your mod, Sidra

By the way, if anyone wants to mess around with the layout, that'd be pretty great.

I just rediscovered Ben Haper after not listening to him for years. His stuff is amazing.
name: Chris
Artists I listen to: Ben Harper (of course), Circulatory System, Kings of Convenience, Michael Franti (if you like Ben Harper than I STRONGLY suggest checking out Micheal Franti) , Bob Marley, The Folk Implosion, Bright Eyes, Gin Blossoms, Grateful Dead, Louis XIV, Loretta Lynn, Grandaddy, The Verve Pipe, Buzz Poets, Elliott Smith, Jason Leowenstien, American Analog Set, Los Lobos, Dinosaur, Jr., and many, many, many others.

My favorite Ben Harper song would have to be, hands down, Brown Eyed Blues.
I recently got a live recording of Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals playing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, which is incredible. I do have a question I would like to pose to you all. This may just be me being nieve, but who are the Innocent Criminals? I had never heard of them before I bought this recording.
Sorry if that's a dumb question. It's just peaked my curiosity.

Just for the heck of it.. [10 Jun 2005|03:07pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Just curious... what is everyone's favorite Harper song? Mine has to be "Roses from my friends." Soo good.

Why was the tour cancelled? I got my hopes up high, hoping to see him in Toronto, bah...
He probably has a good reason, so I won't get too aggravated.
