PleaseRock will let you experience the stoner myth in live performance via a giant projection of the film and a precise recreation of the album. When you press play on the Dark Side on the third lion roar before the movie begins, there are dozens of eerie ways in which the music and movie match up. It’s a musical tightrope act, since the entire band has to stay precisely lined up with the film to maintain the pacing. Easy Rider captured the energy and turmoil of the counter culture of the late 1960s. Music by Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, The Band, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, and the Who helped define the hippie generation and lends weight to the literal and figurative trip of bikers Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, and Jack Nicholson. A man went looking for America. And couldn’t find it anywhere… but PleaseRock will rediscover some of the magic by pairing this epic soundtrack with a screening of scenes from the film. British new wavers XTC created some of the most progressive and challenging music of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, and their album Black Sea is a favorite among critics and devoted fans alike. Nigels With Attitudes will perform the album, featuring Tim Smith (Noel Gallagher and the High Flying Birds, Jellyfish, Sheryl Crow), Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow, Don Henley, Sarah McLachlan), Kevin Spencer (Yacht Rock Schooner), and Nicholas Niespodziani, Mark Bencuya, and Mark Cobb (YRR).
