编辑 | 删除 The Machine: Live @ Variety Playhouse 01/26/08

Lola 发布于:

THE MACHINE, America’s premier Pink Floyd show, has forged a 20 year reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, while creating a legacy all their own. Over the years, The Machine has touched the hearts and souls of many, selling out clubs and theatres across North America, Central America, Europe and the Middle East. They have also appeared at renown music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, and Rock of Ages in Stuttgart, Germany and continue to expand their fanbase exponentially every year.

The New York based band focuses on making every show an authentic Floydian experience for their fans. Known for performing a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16 album repertoire, (complete with faithful renditions of well known hits as well as obscure gems), The Machine’s stellar musicianship, dramatic lighting, multi-media accompaniments, and passionate delivery of inventive setlists sets them above and beyond the rest.

In the classic tradition, The Machine explores collective improvisation paralleling and even rivaling that of an early 1970’s Pink Floyd mentality. Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays continues in the spirit of the later Floyd lineups of the1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans, and their newest A to Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet. All in all, every step on the timeline can be traced at a Machine concert.

In 2004, “Two Nights at the Keswick” was released as a DVD/CD, archiving the band’s bi-annual residency at this historic venue. Their next release, “Unplugged”, (2006) captures a special acoustic performance at B.B. King’s in New York City featuring rare Syd Barrett solo material in addition to deep cuts from early Floyd albums. Currently, a new project is in the works involving a recent European tour. Look for this new release sometime in early 2008.

The members of The Machine include founding members Todd Cohen (drums) and Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals), with long time stagemate Ryan Ball (bass, vocals) , and newly aquired Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals).


晚上去variety playhouse看了这个乐队的演出。像电影院的场地,因为是演唱Pink Floyd的曲目,观众年龄两极分化的很厉害,有白发苍苍地老rocker,还有起哄一流的小屁孩。从一开始我就冲到了台前,keys natural high,自己爽到不行。上半场都是旋律性很强的歌,我跟着摇头晃脑很起劲。左手边有个一身黑衣服分不清男女的人大概是最起劲的,跳的舞好像我国乡下传统的驱魔舞,简称“跳大神”,我那个寒啊。间或还有人忽然晕倒在地上,有警卫跑来让人把烟掐掉。不知道是不是磕多鸟的缘故。

中场休息的时候我去后面找rochelle同学聊天,结果旁边的一个哥哥主动搭讪。晕菜,他马子就在旁边坐啊,这个美国人民的relationship观念实在太不强咧。

下半场基本很迷幻,要不是一直站着,估计我就睡着了。快到结尾的时候很高潮,大叔们的看家本领都抖落了。没什么特别就是技术,活儿好!换我,那手就是帕金森。

正式曲目演出完毕,乐队退场了一下下,结果老少爷们都喊Encore,我那感觉就好像到了茶馆听相声。喊Encore的时候,左手边有个大叔,我靠,抓着栏杆一个人跳起艳舞了。那感觉彪太良好,我看得快吐掉了。就跟昨天看芙蓉姐姐在淘宝卖衣服的照片一样恶心。结果咧,乐队真的出来了(会不会是看不下去那大叔的艳舞了不得而知),因为是tour的last stop了,不止Encore了一首,简直是倾情大奉送,keys一激动,键盘也不玩了,拿了一个嘴吹的电子琴出来。我赶紧拍了个短片,link等下贴。

本来散场的时候想去跟keyboard哥哥套磁,如果是自己的话估计就去了,结果rochelle同学身体不适,没这想法。错过鸟哦。。。

刚刚惊喜的发现自己一个月前的video成功上载,拿来贴上
