Tonights’ Theme Song …. BLAST IT! @tbtduluth

My favorite memories of Newport are the unexpected, unplanned moments, [like] when someone invited me to join them onstage, in the street or on a boat in the harbor or in the yard of some fucked up mansion early in the morning, or ringing church bells and wrestling wild boar in the chapel late at night, duets with the late great Whitney Houston, night swimming, howling in the streets, singing in the fort. It’s another world.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The band Deer Tick, which got its start in Rhode Island, had to find another way to get home for the Newport Folk Festival when U.S. Airways refused to let a member on board with his guitar, the band tweeted Wednesday:
"Just got kicked off a @USAirways flight cuz they wouldn’t let me bring my guitar on board. @Newportfolkfest here I come!!… via @Amtrak"
@Newportfolkfest replied: “They messed with the wrong Folking band.”
Another user posted a link to an article on Redditthat said it’s legal to bring guitars on flights. @deertickmusic answered: “i showed them that. I was told US Airways doesn’t follow FAA rules (???)”

Newport Folk 2014 OEB Spotlight: Tall Tall Trees – “Waiting On the Day”

Pairs Well With…Kishi Bashi, Andrew Bird, My Morning Jacket

It’s been two years since Tall Tall Trees’ expansive sophomore record Moment was released and the hope here is that NYC songwriter has embraced even more of his weird side for his upcoming 2014 follow-up.
