    Default No Depression festival

    (moved from the wrong thread)

    GILLIAN WELCH, IRON & WINE TO HEADLINE FIRST-EVER NO DEPRESSION FESTIVAL

    Saturday, July 11 at Marymoor Park- Redmond, WA

    All-Day Event In Seattle Area Also Features Patterson Hood & The Screwtopians, Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, Justin Townes Earle, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Seattle Roots-Music All-Star Revue, And Zee Avi

    SEATTLE, Wash. Seattle Theatre Group (STG Presents), Live Nation, and The Lakeside Group present the first-ever No Depression Festival, sponsored by the pioneering and influential roots-music magazine and website. The festival will take place Saturday, July 11, 2009, at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington, just outside Seattle. The all-day event will feature Gillian Welch, Iron & Wine, Patterson Hood & The Screwtopians, Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, Justin Townes Earle, Jessica Lea Mayfield, a Seattle roots-music all-star revue, and Zee Avi.

    No Depression launched as a quarterly (and then bimonthly) magazine in Seattle in 1995, and quickly became known as the foremost journalistic authority for roots-music genres ranging from alternative-country to singer-songwriters to bluegrass to trad-leaning indie acts, and beyond. In 2008, No Depression shuttered its print publication and launched a website, NoDepression.com, which in 2009 has transitioned into a community-oriented site that will soon house an extensive archive of the former print magazine's content. In addition, No Depression has partnered with University of Texas Press to issue a series of "bookazines," the second of which hit shelves this spring (a third is due in the fall).

    Tickets, $45.00 (not including applicable fees), are on sale Friday, May 15th at noon at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at http://www.ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone 206-628-0888. Tickets can also be purchased online at http://www.concertsatmarymoor.com. For more information, please visit http://www.stgpresents.org and http://www.nodepression.com.

    This fest would be a win if you got Uncle Tupelo to do a one off.

    Amy --

    'No Depression' is the name of a website (and, previously, a print magazine) that covers the alt-country scene and has for years. It gets its name from the first Uncle Tupelo album, which in turn got its name from a 1930s song they covered called, you got it, "No Depression", whose chorus goes:


    I'm going where there's no depression
    To a better land that's free from care
    I'll leave this world of toil and trouble
    My home's in heaven
    I'm going there


    Also, because you probably don't know this either, Uncle Tupelo broke up in the mid 90s and Jay Farrar formed Son Volt and Jeff Tweedy formed Wilco. I think you've heard of Wilco.

    I don't actually listen to Wilco though. I might change that, since they're at Bonnaroo. Thanks for the rundown, Tom.

    amy there is so much good music that you don't listen to I'm surprised we are able to agree on radiohead.

    I'm a lazy music listener, Tom. I prefer to really really love the music I listen to and devote all my energies to that as opposed to kinda like the music I listen to. And I don't really treasure exploring new music as much as everyone else here seems to. LAZY.

    I have heard the name Uncle Tupelo before though.

    I used to listen to the anthology obsessively. I never listened to any of the actual albums though. Do you think the Anthology covers it or do I need to go get some more Uncle Tupelo?
