Two night show [10 Sep 2006|11:17pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Hi everyone,

I've wanted to see Rusted Root live for so long. I'm really excited because they're finally coming to my town. They're playing two shows - a Friday and Saturday night - and I was wondering if anyone has seen then perform two nights in a row. Do they play the same set both nights? I want to make sure I catch all my favorite songs, but if both sets are the same, I only have to catch one. Thanks in advance for your input!

Root will be there!

I have a ticket for Bonnaroo that I can't use. It is not this weekend, but the next, in Manchester, Tennessee. I can't aford to make the trip out there. I'll sell it for what I bought it for ($184.50 + s/h = $209 total) and will ship it to you for free. It's just a week away. I'd like to sell this asap! If you're interested, let me know and we'll work out the details. I swear I'm not out to take your $ and run, and it's 100% a legit tix. THIS MUSIC WEEKEND CANNOT BE MISSED! I'm SO bummed I can't make it!

my name is seth
ive probably been listening to rusted root since the age of ten, and i still think theyre awesome
my first show i have ever really gone to was a rusted root show and it was actually last friday, at the state theatre in portland, maine.
it was an awesome show with the jazz mandolin project opening for them. i really want to see them again now. if you went to that show, i was the one in the big crowd dancing like a hippie and smoking...o wait that was everyone.
thats all i have to say, thank you for your eyes and ears

Hi I'm new [29 Jun 2005|04:53pm]

Hi all! I'm so excited. I'm going camping this weekend at Nelson Ledges in Ohio (about an hour from where I live) and the main reason is to see Rusted Root. I saw Michael Glabicki solo in Kent a couple months ago, which was pretty cool too. I'm going this weekend to this weekend music festival with my girlfriend, my kids (who also love Rusted Root) and my mom. They are performing on Sunday night in the open air. Should be a blast!

See the bloody faces lifted to the sky
Do you want to run to a future left behind?
I remember asking why, there lies aggression.
Separation where there should be love
Power plays while the people die
Let it rain and protect us from this cruel sun

I remember asking why, there lies aggression
Separation where there should be love
Power plays while the people die
I remember asking why, I remember asking why I remember asking why, I remember asking why, why.

Open up your eyes, your eyes and let the child learn.
Open up your eyes, and let the child learn

Let it rain, and protect us from this cruel sun

Why does war kill only the small man? Why does war kill only the small man? I think we know, yes, we know I think we know, know, know

I remember asking why. I remember asking why. I remember asking why.

Let it rain, and protect us from this cruel sun

updates! [13 Sep 2004|06:57pm]

[ mood | working ]

hey hey now, how is everyone?

i went to see liz and jenn perform together this weekend at mr. small's and have a couple of updates for you:

(1) jenn wertz is 6 months pregnant - who knew?! she is due in january and is having a boy. she looks GREAT. (as usual)

(2) both liz and jenn confirmed in two separate conversations, that root is currently booked for a new years eve show in pittsburgh. not sure of the venue but it seems like it's a go...

liz said from now on, shows will probably be pretty few and far between as everyone is concentrating on their own projects (and families, by the looks of it) but that they are not calling it quits, as a band. so... some good news, kinda bittersweet but understandable. that will just make the remaining shows that much more special, hopefully.

that's it for now :)

Not Root-specific, but I'm a dedicated fan, and I'm a writer for this new site. My goal is to get the word out about bands/artists that I think you guys would dig too :) Now that Root's gone, we need to fill that void :)

New site for musicians and music loversCollapse )

Hello, I just joined here after getting an invite a couple months back. To be honest, I have been out of touch with what's going on with Rusted Root for quite some time. Perhaps that is why I am joining this community now, to connect again. I was a long time member of the Rust Tribe, in fact I still might subscribe to it though i don't read it. I'm lucky enough to live in Rochester(one of their favorite cities to play) so I was able to see them fairly often back in the day. One thing that strikes me as wonderful still today is that out of any shows that I ever went to, none were as happy and upbeat as RR shows. There was just this aura about them that could never be touched or duplicated.

once again i'm bouncin' round the room [28 Mar 2004|08:46pm]

i'm just now starting to go to these big things. i was never much for the big social events and huge crowds, but i felt i needed to get out more.. i started out with local hard core band shows, and then bigger things, and one of my most recent was warped tour in early august up at six flags darien lake.. and i'm going again, because i had such a great time, and muse fest seems to be more my style, laid back and mellow with just friendly people sitting around, and enjoying really good music. and camping! camping is uber fun. i'm expecting to have 10 times more fun at this than warped.. i've never gone before, but i've been invited a few times, and things have always come up. so i'm making my plans early early in the year to go to this 3 day event. woo!

I'm not sure if I have heard of muse fest in particular, but I have been to Independence Bash and Phil's Farm Fest and what not at the Sterling Stage Kampitheatre or whatever. they had two stages. I'm thinking it was about 50 presale 70 at the door to get in. Lots of people, lots of nice people, vegans, hippies, drunks, druggies, whatever. We all camped out and had a nice time sharing weed, nitrous, food and drink. It was great. I haven't been to a festival in about a year or so though. I moved back way up north in Massena, like I can see Canada in my back yard, just across the St. Lawrence river. Man I miss living in CNY. The camping, the festivals, the music, the people, the drugs. Everything. You got a feeling there that you just can't get anywhere else. Everyone's nice to each other dude. You can walk to a random fire and just be like, "Hey", or not even say anything at all. You just sit and watch the fire with them, listen to there music. If you have a drum, then sit down and start jammin with em. It's great.

so has anyone heard of muse fest? i was invited by my friend sharah, and it's like this huge hippie festival that lasts for 3 days. and you camp out in the middle of nowhere, and every day is filled with drum circles and tribal-like music, like rusted root and afrocelt and.. phish. well i don't think THOSE bands will actually be playing, it's more of an example of what the music will be like. and you often find people running around naked and drunk in the middle of the night. this should be amusing, i can't wait to go. if anyone is around the ithaca area in newyork.. definately check it out!

peace my friend! ;-)

I was invited to join this community. I'd never heard of Rusted Root before, but a friend of mine, an intern at Rolling Stone, was able to snag complimentary tickets for the December 1996 concert at the Beacon Theater in New York.

The reviewer harps on the rudeness of the audience, but that's probably because he was up in the balcony, in the VIP section, which was filled with an older crowd, mostly industry people looking to hook up. The real fans were down on the floor, feeling the vibe. I think it was one of the most intimate live shows I've been to, given the size of the venue. Rusted Root put on a great live show, and I'd go see them again. I'd even pay for the tickets, this time. :P

I still have a crush on Liz Berlin. :)

Ok, new member, may as well post. I'm not a regular viewer of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," but on a recent episode they played "Send Me on My Way" in the background. The man being made over had a strong Jamaican heritage, so I assume they used the song for its tribal sound. Although, I'd think they'd choose something with more drums in it to achieve that effect.

Oh, and hello, my friends. :)
