Eagle Rock Music Festival, Saturday, October 2, 4:00PM to 11:00PM
"Musicians perform at eleven unique venues ranging from auto shops to formal stages to historical buildings, and even a motel balcony along Colorado Boulevard."
Bonne Musique Zydeco stakes their claim each year on the balcony of the Eagle Rock Welcome Inn Motel.
"Bonne Musique Zydeco (BMZ), literally "good zydeco music," is a 6-member band specializing in the Creole music of Louisiana and east Texas. BMZ draws upon the style of traditional Cajun and Creole musicians, and the influences of the blues and New Orleans artists of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s to create a blend of music designed for dancing. Zydeco is a mix of rock ’n roll, blues, Caribbean and R&B music. But it’s not rock ’n roll or blues music, it’s zydeco. "
"Chris Alfaro is Free the Robots. The genre-defying artist pulls together heavy doses of traditional jazz, psych, electronic and hip-hop, with progressive melodies and devastating drums into a rich pot of sound. His techniques create harmony between genres with the blending of obscure samples with analog and digital compositions."
The Eagle Rock Music Festival will welcome the eclectic, local lineup for which it is known,highlighting the ethnic and cultural diversity of the Los Angeles music scene. Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock experiments with a multitude of genres to create the truly original experience that has paved the way for many other community music festivals.
Musicians perform at eleven unique venues ranging from auto shops to formal stages to historicalbuildings, and even a motel balcony along Colorado Blvd. that will be open to pedestrians between Eagle Rock Boulevard and Argus Street.
I figured the Eagle Rock Music Festival presented a great opportunity to experiment with Tubepress.
So here's the deal. If you shot video at Eagle Rock Music Festival last Saturday, and if you've loaded the video to YouTube ...
You can tag that video with the term "Eagle Rock Music Festival 2009", and the TubePress software should automatically find your video and plug it into this website... http://eaglerockmusic.nelanews.net/
Please give it a try!!!
(There is one minor bug: Some false positives that I managed to bump to the end of each group.)
The band is out of Orange County; The Dusty Rhodes sound is a mix of rock, country and folk. The "Influences" listed on the Dusty Rhodes MySpace page reads like a canonical Who's Who's of classic rock.
