Sept. 5 brings indie darlings Vampire Weekend to the capital along with local acts Little Stella, Three Little Birds and Shannon Rose and the Thorns.

The festival closes Sunday, Sept. 8 with The Wailers, who formed after Bob Marley’s death marked the end of their previous group Bob Marley & The Wailers.

German reviews of Neil & the Unicorns? in Berlin

For those of you who can’t wait, one of the first reviews of the June 2 Berlin concert that kicked off the European Alchemy Tour of Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

3893440_0_urn-newsml-dpa-com-20090101-130603-99-02978_large_4_3Dressed all in black Neil, along with Poncho, Billy and Ralph played to a crowd of 22,000 at Waldbuehne.

One article describes the Horse as: “Ancient warriors” and “Not virtuosos but instinct musicians.” Apt descriptions.

Another calls Neil “The Last Unicorn.” But we already knew this..;-)

Picnic with Neil

Neil Young and his band Crazy Horse will join Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois at the third annual Greenbelt Harvest Picnic at Christie Lake Conservation Area.

The 67-year-old Canadian rock icon will headline the daylong music, food, and fun fest that takes place Saturday, Aug. 31 at the conservation area in rural Dundas.

Young will conclude a European tour Aug. 21 at London’s O2 arena and then return with Crazy Horse to North America for the Harvest Picnic, his only southern Ontario stop of the summer.

“As I look at this year’s lineup for Greenbelt Harvest Picnic,” said Lanois, “I can say that my dream has come true. I’m surrounded by artists who I love, many of whom I’ve made records with. This year’s Harvest is truly a homecoming.”

Lineup: Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Emmylou Harris, Daniel Lanois, Whitehorse, Rocco DeLuca and Trixie Whitley (more to be announced in upcoming weeks)

Virginia in September

Neil Young, other big-name bands coming to Nelson County festival

Posted: Saturday, May 18, 2013 12:15 am

Neil Young & Crazy Horse is listed among many top-name bands coming to Central Virginia in September as part of a new four-day music festival in Nelson County. Already months into the planning process, Interlocken Music Festival is scheduled to take place at Oak Ridge Estate in Arrington from Sept. 5 to 8. Producers have said they expect a turnout in the tens of thousands.

In addition to Neil Young & Crazy Horse, producers have said some of the confirmed bands are: Furthur, made up of Phil Lesh and Bob Weir from The Grateful Dead along with five other members; Zac Brown from the Zac Brown Band; The String Cheese Incident; and The Black Crowes. Event publicist Ken Weinstein said in an email that they are planning to announce more bands Monday or Tuesday.

According to a press release for the festival, the bands will play in “unique and exciting artist pairings.”

“Interlocken’s conceptual theme will touch all elements of the event: ‘when something ends, another begins,’” the release states. “This simple yet powerful ethos of sustainability will be integrated into camping, lodging, food, drink, transport offerings as well as specialized onsite activities.”

Another part of this theme will be captured by an emphasis on quality over quantity, as there will be fewer bands that will play in continuous two-hour sets on two main stages so that the music never stops. Several of the bands will play multiple sets on different days.

While Oak Ridge Estate will serve as the site for the event

The festival will take place on Oak Ridge’s racetrack, which is the length of six football fields, according to the press release.

“We are very excited to welcome the Interlocken festival to Oak Ridge,” Oak Ridge owner Rhonda Holland stated in the press release. “Several concert promoters have approached us in the past about using the track. We have always been concerned about the impact that this would have on the surrounding community and the land. Dave and Peter have a history of caring about the communities and land where they produce events. We look forward to working with the Interlocken team for many years to come.”

“Hopefully, this will become the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival of Central Virginia,” Frey said at the meeting. “That’s our goal.”

Weinstein said all bands announced so far have been confirmed to play at the festival. Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Furthur both have listed the festival listed among their tours on their official websites.

The Black Crowes and The String Cheese Incident did not have the festival listed on their official websites.
