Concert Recap: Mark Knopfler

Saturday night, October 3rd, Mark Knopfler played a sold-out show at the Murat Theatre in the Old National Centre in Indianapolis. He was joined on stage by his band of eight other people to play a two-hour concert filled with classics from his former band, Dire Straits, and solo tracks, too. Knopfler is a musicians’ musician after having worked with and even producing records for the likes of Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, and Randy Newman. Rolling Stone ranked Knopfler the 27th greatest guitarist of all time and that title rang true on Saturday night in Indianapolis.

As the crowd sat in anticipation, a man appeared on stage wearing a bright, bold Union Jack jacket and introduced the one and only Mark Knopfler. The entire band then entered the stage and led the crowd in a clapping rhythm to warm up the room. In fact, Knopfler warmed the entire evening with his quick little jokes and asides. He even told his band “good luck” a handful of times. The entire crowd was giggling from his dry British humor and he kept it understated and consistent all evening.

The stage was set up with appropriate but discrete lighting and three blocks of instruments. Almost every instrument the band used throughout the evening (and there were many) was housed right there on stage. This gave the show a sort of living room or studio feeling. If you add in the fact that Knopfler hinted at the show being whimsical with a loose set list and the lack of large monitors at the front of the stage blocking the band, you can understand how this show may have felt personal in a way.

At one point in the evening, Knopfler took a moment to introduce his band members. Not only did he introduce them to an energetic, cheering crowd, but he had the most genuine and heartfelt things to say about them. The audience could feel the shared admiration between band members and this made for a special evening. These band members played more instruments than most other rock concerts ever have. Multiple guitars, electric bass, double bass used with and without a bow, keys, organs, accordion, fiddle, Uilleann pipes (the national bagpipe of Ireland), mandolin, saxophone, and others all made appearances on stage. This band is wickedly talented.

Highlights of the night included “Privateering,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Postcards From Paraguay,” and the Dire Straits classic, “Sultans of Swing.” The show closed with
“Speedway at Nazareth” before an encore of “So Far Away” and “Going Home: theme from Local Hero.” During “Sultans of Swing” Knopfler played his signature Mark Knopfler Stratocaster guitar. He had the amazing ability to be able to play that song’s incredible guitar solo and have the rest of his body be as relaxed as can be. It was awe-inspiring.

In fact, the entire audience was awe-struck all evening. Knopfler himself used the term “Transatlantic Blues” at some point in the evening and that perfectly describes this classic bluesy rock with inspired hints of Celtic instruments and melody patterns. Mark Knopfler and his band left the audience in a unique kind of sensory overload with so many instruments doing so many things. One can’t help but try to watch them all at once, and that kind of musical overload is the best kind of musical overload.

Forecastle Festival 2015

Forecastle Festival

Friday, 7:13PM – Roughly halfway through the first day of the festival. Forecastle 2015 has been fun so far, extremely hot however. So far I have discovered a new band, Fly Golden Eagle, taken in a bit of Cold War Kids and watched St. Paul & The Broken Bones wow another audience. I highly doubt those guys will ever come across an audience that they can’t win over. There has also been some delicious tacos and crazy good doughnut holes glazed in a local stout and covered in Fruity Pebbles, you have to love life on a festival diet. Cage The Elephant is taking the Mast Stage soon…which is my cue to get back out there. – Rob

Saturday, 2:09PM – Last night was interesting, to say the least. Cage The Elephant put on a fantastic show. Lead singer Matt Shultz attacked the music, the stage, the crowd and anything that came near him and it was fun to watch. I saw the last part of Houndmouth’s performance on the Boom Stage after Cage The Elephant had finished. Houndmouth is a great live band and the huge audience that they drew was a testament to that.

Sam Smith was the headliner last night, and this is where things got interesting. He opened his set with “I’m Not The Only One” which engaged the crowd as everyone sang along. He was personable with the audience….marveling at the fact that this many people in Louisville, KY even know who he is, he told the story of a tough breakup that lead him to write most of his first album and he had the crowd say hello to his father, who was in attendance. There was a fireworks display to the right of the stage, over the Ohio River during his set. Night one of Forecastle 2015 was headed towards a perfect ending. Then the winds came. Seemingly out of nowhere, strong wind just started blowing dirt and dust around the grounds, there was an announcement on the loudspeakers that heavy storms were moving in and the festival site was being evacuated. Twenty minutes later, we were in our car. The staff of the festival deserves a tip of the cap for doing a great job in getting everyone out of harms way in a quick and calm manner.

There were three after shows last night. One of them was planned on-board a boat, so the weather forced it’s cancellation. The other two went off as planned. We went to a club called Headliners to see Lord Huron. I was concerned that I wasn’t going to be into the show. It had been a long hot day and the music wasn’t starting until after midnight. Turns out I had nothing to worry about. Lord Huron’s new album Strange Trails is one of my favorites of 2015 so far and as good as the band sounds on the record, they sound even better live. Their stage show is full of energy and everyone in the club was having a great time. No one seemed to be bothered by the fact that it was nearly 3AM when the show wrapped up. Based on the energy in the place, the band could have played as long as they wanted and no one would have complained.

It’s off for Day 2 now….let’s find out what else Forecastle 2015 has in store. – Rob

Sunday, 2PM – Day two of the Forecastle Festival was full of great performances, with a couple of surprises thrown in. The day got off to a late start. There was some prep work that needed to be done to the grounds from the storms on Friday night, which delayed the opening of the gates by an hour and a half or so. This delay caused the schedule of performances to be shuffled around slightly.

The first band that I took in was Desaparecidos, the political punk band fronted by Conor Oberst. Their show was high energy throughout and full of political themes. The crowd seemed to be right on board.

After Desaparecidos, there was a little time to kill. I was able to utilize this time to get a strawberry-banana smoothie. Can’t beat that, especially in this heat. I was also able to take a bit of time and walk around the grounds, checking out some of the local art that is on display before making my way back to the Mast Stage for the start of The Word.

The Word is a super group of sorts. Made up of Robert Randolph, John Medeski, Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew. The performance was pretty much what you would expect from musicians of this caliber. They tore though the songs, flawlessly.

Once The Word had finished it was time to make it to the Boom Stage for Shovels & Rope. This is when it occurred to me that there wasn’t going to be any down time between shows with the new condensed schedule. Shovels & Rope put on a fun show, they drew an amazing crowd.

After Shovels & Rope, The War On Drugs took over the Mast Stage. I enjoyed listening to them, although I was surprised that their set was as laid back as it was. I really expected more punch from these guys.

The next stop was the Boom Stage to take in Sturgill Simpson. I had heard a lot of good tings about this guy and he lived up to every one of them. I expected to like the show, I didn’t expect to like it quite this much. Sturgill lives in a realm somewhere between alt-country, Americana and jam music. The package comes together wonderfully and the audience never stops dancing.

After Sturgill Simpson I found myself with a little time to kill and I wandered around until something caught my ear. There was a sound coming from the Ocean Stage that had just a hint of funk to it and I had to check it out. What I found was the biggest surprise of Forecastle 2015, so far. Cherub was on stage. A duo that is part electronic, part dance, part funk and part 80’s pop. As their set went on the crowd continued to get larger. There was an intense party atmosphere around the stage and no one was standing still. Cherub, as of this moment, put on the best show that I have seen here at the festival. A huge surprise considering I hadn’t heard of them until stumbling across them playing the smallest stage on the grounds.

Almost the minute that Cherub wrapped up, My Morning Jacket took the Mast Stage. Nothing fancy about their show, just amazing songs played perfectly in front of a rabid hometown crowd. There wasn’t a lot of banter between songs either, although Jim James did stop down long enough to talk about the great arts and music scene here in the city of Louisville.

Day two at Forecastle 2015 was a wonderful experience on all fronts and I expect great things from this third and final day. As I’m typing this in the media tent, I can hear Noah Gundersen on the Boom Stage playing a hauntingly slow cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” That means it’s going to be a great day, right?

Forecastle Blog: Day One

Rob
The early part of Day 1 started with rain. As soon as we got out of our vehicle…the rain started to fall.

The first stop after entering the gates was the Mast Stage to see Benjamin Booker. The crowd was sparse to begin with but it didn’t take long for him to grab everyone’s attention. For a three piece band, these guys know how to make some noise, the best kind of noise.

After seeing Benjamin it was a short walk over the the Boom Stage to catch The Black Lips. The crowd was into these guys from the moment they took the stage until the moment they left. The Black Lips bring a ton of energy in their live show.

After seeing The Black Lips it was off to the Port Stage to catch the last half of Foy Vance‘s set. The crowd was really into the Irish singer’s music, singing along and enjoying the more laid back vibe that he brought to the festival.

When Foy Vance finished I had the opportunity to talk briefly with Benjamin Booker. We talked about the excitement and nervous energy surrounding the release of his debut album.

After chatting with Benjamin it was back to the Mast Stage to see Gary Clark Jr. and then over to the Boom Stage where I was scheduled to talk with Jim Eno of Spoon.


Josh
While Rob was listening to music and interviewing bands, I was walking around soaking in the Forecastle atmosphere. From a giant boat being painted to row of art galleries the Festival is full of music, art, and all kinds of random sightings. Friday was full of different combinations of music. I was excited to see Outkast later on that night so I positioned myself near the middle of the crowd for the last part of Gary Clark Jr. on the main stage (Mast Stage). Thankfully I did. Just as expected when Gary finished I was able to move even closer for Twenty One Pilots. Having never seen or heard their music, I was shocked by their set.  A two piece band brought intense sound and crazy energy that eventually led to the entire crowd jumping and singing.  Promising to give the crowd everything they had, the 75 minute set ended with a bang. Hoisted up by the crowd, the drummer and lead singer played separate drums that propelled liquid off of them.

Having grown up listening to Outkast, it was a show that I would not miss. Once Twenty One Pilots finished I quickly made my way through the crowd to the second row. In for the long haul like others around me I quickly made friends to create a “Great Wall of China” -like barrier.  There would be no storming by to get closer from others behind us. What felt like an eternity quickly turned to heavy beats and guitar riffs. The set started with B.O.B. and ended with The Whole World with all the hits in between.

 

I am going to be completely honest. Making my way back into the media tent after the Outkast set and sitting down after a long day of standing and carrying equipment was heaven. It was the best 10 minutes that I could have asked for at that moment. 10 minutes quickly flew by before Rob and I realized that it was time to make our way to the late show at Headliners featuring Curtis Harding & St. Paul & The Broken Bones.

 

 

Forecastle Blog: Day Two

Rob
The second day at Forecastle has been all about music and interesting sights. Bands we’ve seen today: Boy & Bear, Spanish Gold, Lord Huron & Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings.

Boy & Bear put on a solid set this morning on the Boom Stage. Spanish Gold was the biggest surprise of the day for most of the crowd. They had everyone in front of the Mast Stage jumping and dancing. It was fun to watch the area in front of the Boom Stage fill up as Lord Huron starting playing and grabbing the attention of people walking by. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings put on an incredible show. Everyone was dancing and smiling the entire time they were on stage.

It’s off to the Mast Stage to see Band of Horses next….

 

Josh
Day 2 for me was a little bit different from Day 1. I was able to walk around and interact with a lot of people in attendance. Got a chance to meet a gentleman by the name of Joe who was a huge Dead Head. He and I talked music for almost half an hour after the Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings set. Found out that he and I attend another music festival at the same time earlier this year. Thanks to Joe, I have some new books to pickup to learn more about marketing, music and The Grateful Dead.

My second encounter was with a young lady by the name of Joy. Talk about a huge Jack White fan. She had been to Nashville and Third Man Records a thousand times. Literally had seen Jack White hundreds of times. I am pretty sure it was borderline between fan and stalker. That said, she was super friendly and nice. I respectfully declined the brownie she offered me.

After a quick stop at the media tent to reload on Red Bull (thank God for that this weekend), I was off to have my face melted off by Jack White. Rob took my strategy from Day 1 and positioned himself correctly to get close to the front as possible. Myself, I stayed back (helpful tip to all those who attend a music festival, ladies make the best blockers when moving through giant crowds). I feel bad but I did not get the lady’s names who helped me position myself in the middle of the crowd about 20 feet back from the stage. Having only listened to Jack White and the White Stripes, I became a huge fan in 2.5 seconds of the first song. Amazing musician and great performer. I don’t know about Rob, but I will definitely try to see him again the next time he is close to town.

The night ended with Rob and I heading back to the hotel for a good night’s rest..NOT! While in Louisville it would be rude not to check out 4th Street. Talk about an area that is fun, loud, intense, energetic and full of passion for dancing. One could compare it to KOK (Kilroy’s on Kirkwood) and Broad Ripple times 10.

Last stop of the night, FOOD. Nothing like late night Steak N Shake to cap off a day/night of fun. Can’t wait for Day 3…

Here are some of the sites from around the festival.

 

Forecastle Blog: Day Three

We’re back for day three of Forecastle. Tonight’s headliner is Beck and we’re not leaving until he walks off the stage. We’ve been looking forward to this show all weekend long. Ray LaMontagne also plays tonight, along with Brett Dennen and Trampled By Turtles. It’s going to be a busy Sunday.

Last night we took in Band of Horses and Jack White. Band of Horses may have been the best show of the weekend, so far.  Another highlight of the festival was Dwight Yoakam’s cover of Jackson Browne’s “The Pretender”. Jack White closed out last night’s festivities. His 90 minute set included songs from his new solo album Lazaretto as well as The White Stripes catalogue and The Raconteurs. He brought energy and excitement to the stage and he seemed to be enjoying it himself, I wouldn’t swear to it, but I think I saw him smile once or twice.

Lucius is starting…that means it’s time to hit the Mast Stage.

 

Josh
Well the sun finally showed it’s bright face today for the first time all weekend. HOT! Water was key for survival. I was able to bounce around again today checking out Lucius, Brett Dennen, Trampled By Turtles, Jenny Lewis, Nickel Creek, The Replacements, Ray LaMontagne, and Beck (heading there). My feet are cooking from all that walking. Of the 8 artists I was able to see, Trampled By Turtles was my favorite. It was the mandolin player’s birthday day (Erik Berry). Super cool to see and hear thousands of people sing “Happy Birthday” to him. Well, like I said, Beck is getting ready to start so I am hustling over to catch it. More of an update and photos to come later.

…Later Simply wow. Like Jack White, I was familiar with Beck’s music but had never seen him live. He was no disappointment at all. From start to finish he entertained the crowd and put on a tremendous show. The music, the crowd, the lights, the visual background screen behind Beck, the jokes that Beck told, were all just super cool. Sunday was a long hot day and it was well worth it once thousands of people started singing “Where it’s at. I got two turntables and a microphone”.

Forecastle Blog: The Monday After

 
Josh
It’s lunch time on the Monday after Forecastle. Rob and I elected to make the drive back home Sunday night after the show. We were both really jacked up on adrenaline thanks to Beck so the first hour flew by. It wasn’t until I dropped Rob off in Bloomington that I got a chance to really collect my thoughts. The drive from Bloomington to Indianapolis is a peaceful journey at 2am. Thinking back over the weekend I was thoroughly impressed with the Festival. Not that I am a festival expert by any means. This one was different from other festivals I have been able to attend in the past. The music was great don’t get me wrong. Getting in and out was very easy. The crowd each day was friendly. Let me explain on that. I’ve been to festivals where people constantly push through because they HAVE TO BE upfront. Not the case here. People allowed you to move through the crowd until it was obvious there was no where else to go. People were happy. I never encountered the overly intoxicated drunk you normally see at shows. I also didn’t encounter too many people on drugs either (which was different). I got offered a brownie once (like I said before I respectfully declined), saw some young adults take a hit of acid, and some here and there were smoking (non-cigarettes of course). But overall that was it. This festival seemed more family friendly. Saw a ton of kids. Even little babies with headphones on which you can see in some pictures. I called the babies future rock stars in training all weekend. Which all of this leads me to the final ultimate question, “Would I attend again next year?” For the price of admission, cost of food and drinks, quality of music, crowd assessment, staff friendliness, quality of cleanliness, flow of traffic…Yes. Yes I would come back and encourage others to do the same. Bonnaroo is Bonnaroo. Hangout is on a beach but expensive. Coachella is a hike to try to get to from Indiana. Forecastle is a great festival for those looking to get a solid 3-Day music festival experience, and enjoy it!

Lastly I would like to thank the staff at Forecastle Festival for allowing me to attend and supplying me with Red Bull all weekend. Gracious hosts. I would also like to thank Karma Records who helped make this blog possible. I hope you enjoyed our coverage and photos of Forecastle Festival 2014. Thank you for joining Rob and I every step of the way this entire weekend.

-Josh

ADDENDUM TO WTTSFM.COM WEB SITE USER AGREEMENT AND PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT
Containing Additional Terms for Sites Involving Online Commerce, Links to Third Party Entities, Contests and Games and Postings (“the Addendum”)
Before you may access WTTSFM.com sites involving online commerce, links to third parties, postings, contests and games (“Member Sites”) you must acknowledge that you have read this Addendum with the WTTSFM.com Privacy Policy and the Web Site User Agreement and accept their terms by clicking “I Accept” at the end of this Addendum. If you do not agree to data collection policies and the use of the data outlined in the Privacy Policy or the Web Site User Agreement you may not access Member Sites. The term “the Site” is used to refer to all WTTSFM.com Web Sites – those requiring membership and those not requiring membership.
You must be at least 18 years of age to click “I accept” or to use Member Sites. WTTSFM.com relies on users to be truthful in giving age information or participating in sites that are age-related.
WTTSFM.com’s Privacy Policy
Your privacy related to your Internet use and this Site is important to us. As part of the operation of the Site, we gather certain types of information about users and we would like to tell you the types of information we gather, what we do with it and how you can correct or change the information about you.
Information Collected By WTTSFM.com
WTTSFM.com collects two types of information from users; personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) (such as first and last names, street address, birth date and/or e-mail addresses); and non-personal information such as aggregate data (such as how many users log onto WTTS.com on a daily basis).
Personal Data
WTTSFM.com explicitly asks when it needs Personal Data that presumably identifies or can be used to contact you. We will ask for Personal Data if you register for our newsletter or other membership services, or when you answer surveys, enter contests or other such interactive features; or if you want to engage in a commercial transaction online (that is purchase something from a Member Site). You may not participate in any such activities that require the submission of Personal Data unless you are 18 years or older.
Aggregate Information
Aggregate information, such as which pages users access or visit and information volunteered by users, survey information and/or site reservations is collected through various methods. For example, WTTSFM.com collects IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from our Site our server automatically logs your address. We do not link IP addresses to any personal data. We collect IP addresses so that we can provide aggregate data to advertisers about volume of use. Aggregate data does not contain Personal Data about an individual user.
Use of Cookies
WTTSFM.com also uses “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that most major Web Sites write to your hard drive for record keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies allow WTTSFM.com to measure activity on the Site to improve your user experience, for example, by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, thus allowing you to visit various Member Sites without re-registering. Cookies are used by WTTSFM.com to measure activity on the Site and make improvements and updates based on which areas are popular and which are not. WTTSFM.com does not use cookies to retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie. Except for personal information voluntarily provided by you (i.e., during membership registration or a contest) WTTSFM.com does not use information transferred through cookies for any promotional or marketing purposes.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers, which is standard in the Internet industry. WTTSFM.com does not control these cookies, and these cookies are not subject to WTTSFM.com’s privacy policy.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you’d prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, some parts of the Site, such as the member-only areas and shopping, contest and game areas, probably will not function properly if you do so.
Use of Information Collected by WTTSFM.com
WTTSFM.com uses both Personal Data and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. Both personal and non-personal information are used to improve the content of the Site, to customize the content and/or layout of the Site for each individual user and to notify users about updates to the Site, promotional offers or opportunities that we believe will be of interest to you.
WTTSFM.com shares aggregate information with third parties for both advertising and promotional purposes.
WTTSFM.com may also share Personal Data with affiliated third parties, such as advertisers, for marketing or promotional purposes. WTTSFM.com will disclose to users when their Personal Data will be shared and will provide users with an opportunity to decline sharing Personal Data at the time of your registration for the particular activity or feature, or alternatively, via the following procedures. If you object to the use of your Personal Data for advertising or promotional purposes, you may stop that use by modifying your registration information online. Please change or delete your registration information by returning to: https://www.wttsfm.com, unchecking the relevant boxes or deleting the relevant data and then clicking “submit.” We reserve the right to contact you at any time for administrative or informational purposes regarding your membership or the activity you have registered for.
Also, if you have registered as a member through our online registration system and have subscribed to one or more of our e-mail newsletters and do not want to receive such e-mail newsletter(s) from us in the future, please discontinue your subscriptions by returning to: https://www.wttsfm.com, unchecking the relevant box or boxes, and then clicking “submit”.
In the event WTTSFM.com plans to post any Personal Data on the Web Site, WTTSFM.com will either notify you of this possibility at the time of registration, when you provide Personal Data and/or, if possible, when such information is posted.
Children and Privacy
WTTSFM.com encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online, and to be fully familiar with the sites visited by their children. At various Member Sites, WTTSFM.com will ask whether users are under the age of 18 as part of the registration process. WTTSFM.com requires users to be truthful and accurate in responding to these questions. No Personal Data should be submitted to or posted on the Site by users under the age of 18 years.
We do not knowingly or intentionally collect Personal Data from persons under the age of 18 and will automatically reject and delete the registration or entry of any person we believe in good faith to be underage. Any false or fraudulent registration or entry from a minor will be deemed to be ineligible and will disqualify the minor from the receipt of any prize, benefit or other participation.
Message Boards and Chat
Please remember that information posted to message boards and chat areas becomes public information. Use caution when posting. Users under the age of 18 should not use chat rooms or message boards. As set forth in WTTSFM.com’s Terms and Conditions of use, users of chat rooms and message boards must follow acceptable standards of behavior when posting messages online.
Links to Other Sites
It is important to note that for your convenience, WTTSFM.com contains links to third party web sites and that those web sites may not have the same business practices or privacy policies as WTTSFM.com. WTTSFM.com has no responsibility or liability for your access to and use of any third party web site. For instance, if you click on an advertisement on WTTSFM.com, this may take you away from WTTSFM.com and to an entirely different web site owned or controlled by a third party. The Site can include links from advertisers, content providers and partners who may use WTTSFM.com’s logo and/or style as a result of a co-branding agreement.

Therefore, you should consult that web site’s privacy policy before you submit any Personal Data. See our Web Site Use Agreement for more information about linked third party websites.
You must click “I accept’ to signify your agreement to the Web Site User Agreement, any Addendum, and our Privacy Policy.
