Nigel Hall Band + Galactic with David Shaw – Indianapolis, IN @ The Vogue Theater 4/4/13

On a recent Thursday night, I headed up to Indianapolis to one of my favorite venues in the region, The Vogue Theater (look for more videos in a few months after I catch Mos Def at this venue!)

Nigel Hall Band

The opening act was the Nigel Hall Band, which featured Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff and Erick “Jesus” Coomes (from Lettuce) and Jermal Watson (from The Dirty Dozen Brass Band). I walked in and got set up a few minutes late, but you can watch most of the set right here.

Galactic never disappoints. This evening they brought vocalist David Shaw (from The Revivalists) and they pulled out several interesting covers. Below you’ll find an edited video with the most interesting covers, and below that you’ll find the complete two hour set in 2 parts. If you’re unfamiliar with David Shaw or The Revivalists just look below for a few videos from Fiyawerx Productions annual Jazz Fest parties.

VIDEOS: The Roots – Phrenology Tour 2003 – 4 shows with 4 different guitarists

When The Roots embarked on the world tour for their 5th album, Phrenology, in early 2003, they had entered one of their most experimental stages (just as Common had recently done with his Electric Circus album, released only 2 weeks after Phrenology.) The Roots had fully embraced the jam band aesthetic; with guitar now an integral part of their live sound each band member took time on stage for extended solos and improvisations every night. At the same time, their sound was as tight and hard hitting as any funk/soul revue you can remember. At the top of their game, they consistently rocked crowds and impressed critics.

Questlove

With 10 years of hindsight, we can look back and see just how on point this group was as they paved the way for the next generation of hip hop and soul musicians. On the 10 year anniversary of the Phrenology tour I present four broadcast videos of The Roots from 2003, each with different lineups and guitarists.

First up is their homecoming show at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom near the end of the tour. This show featured a slew of surprise guests, including Nice & Smooth, Brand Nubian, and Special Ed. Watch the full video below in 2 parts, download the DVD, or download the full audience audio recording.

Next up is a video from their European Tour just a few weeks later. By this point, guitarist Ben Kenney had left to join Incubus on bass. Having been with The Roots since the summer of 2001 when he filled in on bass while HUB was out, he switched to guitar in mid-August of 2001, then departed in mid-March of 2003.

For this short European tour, Vernon Reid & Martin Luther both held down guitar duties. By May of 2003, Captain Kirk Douglas stepped in on guitar and has been in the band ever since. Presented for the first time with upgraded audio, you can watch this video on youtube, download the DVD, or download the broadcast audio.
