This is the first podcast of 2010 so I want to kick it off by wishing everyone a very Happy New Year. I’ve got a ton of great music lined up to get this year started off right so I hope you will continue listening. Just one quick announcement before I get into the music portion, I made a false statement in the last podcast when I was introducing the new Live Music Podcast App. I had assumed that the Itunes store used the same system for gifting apps as it does for music but apparently that is not the case. For now it looks like the only way to give an app to a friend is to email a gift card through the store. Unfortunately they are only sold in $10 increments so your friend will have to find another way to spend the eight dollars and one cent that they have left over. If you need a suggestion you might mention all of the great Itunes links that are found at livemusicpodcast.net.
Well the music I have for this show is Dan Auerbach and The Fast Five’s August 9th stop at last year’s Lollapalooza. This tour was in support of Dan Auerbach’s solo release Keep It Hid but you may recognize Dan’s voice from his other band, The Black Keys. I’m not totally sure why Dan and drummer Patrick Carney decided to spend some time apart for this album/tour but Black Keys fans need not worry. They have already been back in the studio to record the rap rock collaboration project Blakroc which came out last November and are also working on a new album which will be released in the spring. Similar to Dan, The Fast Five also have an alter ego outside of this gig and are more widely known as the San Antonio based group Hacienda.
