The Revivalists Perform Two Songs On Jimmy Kimmel Live

first_imgThe Revivalists appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, performing two favorites from their 2016 Men Amongst Mountains “Fade Away” and “Wish I Knew You.” The latter has reached new heights, earning the #1 spot for various radio hosts over the last couple of months. It even won the #1 placement at Alternative Radio this last spring, setting a new record for most single-week spins ever at the format. “Wish I Knew You” continues its unstoppable climb breaking now at Hot AC and landing major Top 40 adds such as Los Angeles’ KIIS-FM. Kimmel even noted that was his “summer jam.” “Fade Away” is another fan-favorite, as it features the rocking melodies and love lyrics The Revivalists are known for. The song choices painted a complete picture for fans old and new to enjoy the New Orleans-bred septet in prime time lights.This marks The Revivalists’ second late night television appearance, following Conan in December 2016. Previous to that, they’ve performed on television twice on the TODAY Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show also last year.

Holy Shit You Guys, Did You See The Cast For The New Lion King Remake?!

first_imgWhile we all grow up in different places with different backgrounds, different living situations, different beliefs, and so on, there is one thing that almost everyone’s childhood had in common: Disney movies. We all watched them, sand along to them, probably had a lunchbox with one of their characters on it at some point in time. Those movies are classics, so when Disney began an extensive campaign of live-action remakes, many people were skeptical. However, so far the films have been great: The technologically groundbreaking 2016 The Jungle Book remake directed by Jon Favreau was a worldwide smash, earning close to $1B worldwide, and this year’s live-action Beauty and the Beast became the highest-grossing live-action musical of all time within ten days of its theatrical release.With the strength of its cast, the proven track record of its director, its beloved story and characters and, of course, the unforgettable soundtrack written by Elton John, Tim Rice, Hans Zimmer, and more, the new live-action remake of The Lion King is shaping up to be a sure-fire classic in its own right.The new Lion King is set to open July 19, 2019. Until then, listen back to the original movie soundtrack and imagine these new voices in the mix. Sounds pretty fantastic to us… In a post on Disney‘s Twitter account yesterday evening, the entertainment giant revealed the full cast for their upcoming live-action remake of 1994 animated musical classic The Lion King–and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) will play the lead role of Simba, with Beyoncé starring alongside him as Nala. The legendary James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa from the original film, while Academy Award nominee Whiwetel Ejiofor will play the nefarious Scar and the decorated Alfre Woodard will play Simba’s mother, Sarabi……And that’s just the leads. The rest of the supporting cast is equally star-studded, with comedian and late night host John Oliver playing pessimistic toucan Zazu, South African actor/playwright John Kani voicing the wise Rafiki, and a sure-to-be-hilarous pairing of comedic favorites Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Timon and Pumba. Scar’s cackling hyena cronies will be played by multi-talented comedians Eric André and Keegan-Michael Key as well as Ugandan-German actress Florence Kasumba, best known for playing Ayo in the Marvel cinematic canon. Child actors JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph will play young Simba and young Nala.last_img read more

first_imgLast night, Chris Robinson and his Green Leaf Rustlers project rounded out a three-night run at Sweetwater Music Hall in Marin County, CA, the Grateful Dead motherland. To mark the occasion, founding Grateful Dead member, local resident, and venue co-owner Bob Weir came out to join in the music, as he’s been known to do at the Mill Valley venue.Weir joined Robinson, multi-instrumentalist Barry Sless, bassist Pete Sears, drummer John Molo, and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell (usual guitarist Greg Loiacono was unavailable due to tour dates with The Mother Hips) for three songs to start their second set. After a pair of Grateful Dead staples–”They Love Each Other” and “West L.A. Fadeaway”–Weir finished out his guest spot by helping the band through “It’s All Over Now”, the Bobby and Shirley Womack-penned song that became The Rolling Stones‘ first #1 hit and that the Dead covered briefly toward the end of their career.Now that this brief run with the Rustlers is over, Robinson will turn his attention to As The Crow Flies, a new Black Crowes-facing project featuring Crowes guitarist Audley Freed and bassist Andy Hess, Chris Robinson Brotherhood drummer Tony Leone and keyboardist Adam MacDougall, as well as guitarist Marcus King.
