Texas prog heavies the Mars Volta have broken up. News of their demise came last night (Jan. 23) via a series of tweets from singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala, who founded the group in 2001 with multi-instrumentalist and producer Omar Rodríguez-López, his former compatriot in post-hardcore faves At the Drive-In.
The lineup has been announced for Mountain Jam 2013, and given the assemblage of talent, we're guessing there are going to be a lot of happy campers at the Hunter Mountain ski resort in Hunter, N.Y. Scheduled for June 6 through 9, this year's festival features Phil Lesh & Friends (featuring Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Joe Russo and Jeff Chimenti), Widespread Panic, Govt Mule (back for the ninth straight year), Primus, Dispatch, the Avett Brothers, Gary Clark Jr., Soulive with the Shady Horns, Jackie Greene, Deer Tick, ALO, Rubblebucket, the Amy Helm Band, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, the Revivalists, David Wax Museum and Simo.
Early-bird tickets go on sale this Saturday, Jan. 19, at 10AM EST, offering fans a discount of up to 25 percent off day-of prices. Options include three- and four-day passes -- with and without camping -- as well as an all-new Super VIP Press Package, which gets you catered meals, free massages and access to the artists.
Paul McCartney and Nirvana, Eddie Vedder and Roger Waters, Michael Stipe and Coldplay's Chris Martin: Last night's 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief was teeming with team-ups, and we've got the videos below. As these clips attest, the performers gave it their all, treating fans at New York's Madison Square Garden and an estimated 2 billion people around the world to the kind of concert that, sadly, only happens after horrible disasters.
