Stage Fright was filmed on Motörhead’s 30th anniversary tour on 7th December 2004 at Phillipshalle in Dusseldorf. The BluRay contains the full, 20 song live set played that night including all the hits like ‘No Class’ and ‘Overkill’ plus loads of backstage footage, interviews, photo galleries and testimonials. Originally released on 18th July 2005 the concert is a huge celebration of the bands live achievement throughout their illustrious career.
A timely drama that centers on an unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson, Hidden Figures), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever. Critics claim, “Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell soar in this riveting true story” (Pete Hammond, Deadline).
By the time the world hears the performances from these two shows, Gov’t Mule will have celebrated 25 years as a band, which is something they never could have imagined. It’s no easy task keeping a band together for 25 years. You don’t get to do that without having built, nurtured, depended on, and tested important relationships. In fact, with any band that’s stayed around that long, it’s all about relationships. When the band decided to document where they are currently (musically speaking), it was immediately clear that, amongst other things, this release should be a celebration of those relationships. Available June 28th via Provogue Records, Bring On The Music: Live At The Capitol Theatre is a commemoration curated with the audience experience at the forefront. “Without our audience, there would be no chance or reason for us to be around 25 years later,” says founding member and lead guitarist Warren Haynes. “They’ve stuck with us from the beginning, and this is our way of including them in the celebration of our 25 years together.”
From the project’s inception it was always planned on being filmed and recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. “It’s one of our favourite venues,” offers Haynes. “Since it re-opened in 2012, we’ve had the pleasure of playing there multiple times with many magical shows taking place over the years.” Additionally, bringing on Danny Clinch to direct the film was always part of the plan. “Our relationship with Danny pre-dates the formation of Gov’t Mule,” explains Haynes. “We’ve watched each other’s careers grow in ways that included twists and turns neither of us could’ve predicted. He shot photos for many Mule records throughout the years, including our very first record. It was an obvious choice to work with him again this time around.”
All in all, the music is the connective tissue that brings all these relationships and experiences together. “Music is the thing that’s helped us individually and collectively get through hard times, and it’s driven every decision we’ve made as band since we began in ’94,” states Haynes. “The music has connected the band with the audience, and we all continue to grow together with it.”
In November 2018, The Doobie Brothers returned to the Beacon Theatre for the first time in 25 years to perform two of their landmark albums, Toulouse Street and The Captain And Me.
This historic performance at the Beacon offered an opportunity for Doobie fans to hear deep cuts and songs never-before performed live by the band, such as “Mamaloi,” “O’Connelly Corners,” “Ukiah,” and “The Captain And Me.” The show begins with the 10 songs from the group’s second studio album, Toulouse Street. Originally released in 1972, it’s been certified platinum. Several of the band’s most popular songs first appeared on the album, including “Jesus Is Just Alright” and “Listen To The Music,” the latter presented here with a brand new arrangement featuring horns.
Next, The Doobie Brothers played its third studio release, The Captain And Me. Originally released in 1973, it reached #7 on the Album Chart and has been certified double platinum. Hits include “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove” and “South City Midnight Lady.” The show ended with a three-song encore that included their #1 hit “Black Water.”
"Small Town Southern Man" is the story of country music icon Alan Jackson - a driven artist who has played an essential role in bridging the old and new worlds of country music by blending mainstream country and traditional honky-tonk, which irreversibly jolted country music into the modern era. The program travels the entire journey of Jackson's life, from his boyhood in Newnan, GA to Nashville and his first career successes.
In The Public an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, some homeless patrons turn the building into a shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what's really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
