Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers: September 6, 2014 Lockn Festival

October 11, 2017

[screen shot from this video]

Since the sad and untimely death of the great Tom Petty, the tributes and remembrances have come in from all corners. Of those I was fortunate to read, the first-person tribute from Lucinda Williams seemed particularly heartfelt and authentic. Of the “fan” tributes, the writing of Patterson Hood from the Drive By Truckers seemed to mostly mirror my own personal experiences. Petty’s music provided a soundtrack of sorts for multiple periods of my life — from his early power-pop hits to his mid career LA-based American folk. He produced songs that instantaneously transport the listener back to that time in their life that the song represents. For me, the Full Moon Fever album represented my return to NYC to live full time and those songs bring me back to my first apartment in Sheridan Square. Oh, the days.

This performance at the second annual Lockn Festival is vintage Petty. The nearly two-hour Fest set draws from all periods in his career and while the tour was ostensibly to promote his then-new album Hypnotic Eye, which would sadly be his last album with The Heartbreakers, he didn’t rely heavily on new material performing just four songs from the record. The rest were the hits and some moderately deep cuts that had the crowd singing, swaying and cheering. This recording is our way to remember this truly great artist who left us all too soon.

The “legality” of NYCTaper hosting this recording is quite simple. The Lockn Festival is an open taping Festival, and indeed in 2014 the Fest’s website contained language that taping was “encouraged” and recordings could be distributed through free channels. With a written clear policy, Lockn Festival undoubtedly contracted with the artists who consented through their concert riders.

This excellent recording was captured by Kubacheck with the same equipment and location from the Wilco recording from this Festival posted on this site three years ago. Enjoy!

Wilco: September 6, 2014 Lockn Fest (1st Night) – Flac/MP3/Streaming

September 13, 2014

Wilco Jeff Smile Lockn
[screen capture from this video]

Wilco is currently celebrating their 20th year as a band, and we’ve been there virtually from the beginning — my first Wilco show was at Mercury Lounge in 1996. And throughout these past two decades, the band has consistently delivered quality albums, epic live shows and an infinite number of memories. I think its fair to say that many of my own personal peak experiences have come with Wilco as a soundtrack — whether it be a classic 1997 show at Irving Plaza, a rewarding trip to Coney Island, a great roadtrip upstate, or another great roadtrip upstate, or what is perhaps this site’s highlight last Summer’s cover extravaganza. So this year I even considered dropping everything and driving down to Virginia for a day. Unfortunately that was not possible, but that’s what friends are for. And this site has been blessed with some great friends, including Kubacheck who volunteered to “cover” Lockn Festival for the site. So we’ll have both Wilco sets from this Festival, as will we have the recently announced Portchester shows. For this night, the takeaway was Jeff Tweedy’s tongue-in-cheek revelation that he hates rainbows. Although the set was a truncated ninety-minute festival-sized Wilco show, there were also several musical highlights. As this is the 20th year celebration, some early numbers have been featured in the setlist and we are streaming from their first album “Shouldn’t Be Ashamed”. See you at the Cap in October!

Kubacheck recorded this show from the official taper’s section with his high-end MBHO cards. I did some post-production which included boosting the levels and adding some tasty EQ to provide some punch. Overall, its an outstanding recording that is consistent with the many quality Wilco recordings we’ve had on NYCTaper. Enjoy!
