It’s been a few days and a lot has been going down, so it’s time for a roundup of news from around the web.  The message is simple: don’t be a slacker or you will have to put together a hell of a long recap blog post.

Jonathan Russell and Josiah Johnson from The Head and The Heart perform live.

Interview: The Head and the Heart’s Tyler Williams on the band’s journey from open mics to three nights at The Fillmore – thebaybridged.com – Interview/ Feature

In a well written feature article/interview before the Fillmore shows Tyler reveals all, well maybe not all, but a lot. Here is a blip ““It’s not a healthy criticism circle up there. It bore down on Jon. It came out in one song … it’s pretty angsty,” he said. A second song, going with the working title of “Bird With Her Own Cage” will have a “hair” of electronica. “It’s about unrequited love, when you were young. And now you can actually have love, when you’re older. Does it mean the same as that unrequited love?”

Highly recommend checking out the full interview.

The Head & The Heart: Seattle Band Are “Liked,” A Lot – cityweekly.net – Feature/Interview - 

A great article that was released before THATH’s Salt Lake City performance opening for The Shins:
“They had something like 1,700 fans, and we had something like 1,600,” says The Devil Whale bassist Jake Fish. “So, Charity bet [Jones] that they could have more fans at the end of a year or something, just kind of joking around.” As of press time, The Head & The Heart had nearly 100,000 fans; The Devil Whale had nearly 3,000.

“I think they won,” Fish says with a laugh.

The feature goes on to discuss the relationship between the two bands (The Head and The Heart and The Devil Whale), and then dives into the song writing process on the new album and creativity with some input from Tyler.

Jonathan Russell of The Head and The Heart performing

Gone are the days.......

This week I was privileged to see The Head and The Heart open for the Dave Matthews Band not once, but twice.

I have been to many DMB shows, (and by many I mean more than 50 but less than 250) and the general rule of thumb is: you do not go in for the opening act unless you want first crack at the toilets before the drunk masses of young people make their way in to the venue. This was not the case for The Head and The Heart. Although the amphitheaters were not packed for their performance, there was more of a presence than is generally seen for the opening acts.

Night 1 – May 22, 2012 – Atlanta, Georgia.
The Head and The Heart, and Atlanta have a great history. For some reason the shows in Atlanta are always special, and this one was no exception. I have never before seen the pit full for an opening band, but on May 22nd it was full. Dave (Matthews) came out to introduce The Head and The Heart and expressed his love for the band, and how grateful he was that they were opening for him. I was in the upper sections for this show so I had a good view of the entire crowd aside from those on the lawn, and it was really nice to see that many people show up for an opening act. Again the amphitheater was not full, but for an opening act there was a really nice turn out. The set was solid, and as it went on more people got out of their seats and rose to clap, and dance along with the music. Lost in my Mind really got the crowd going, and Rivers and Roads made for one hell of a closer. It was my first time seeing Gone with the full band, and I really loved the build up. Later on during DMB’s performance Dave again mentioned how much he loved the Head and The Heart, their music, and has a hard time holding himself back from calling them all the time, and hopes he does not scare them off. Personally I enjoyed THATH’s 45 min set more that night than DMB’s 2 and a half hour set.

Setlist: Cats, Couer, Ghosts, Gone, Lost in my mind, Winter Song, Down in the Valley, Rivers and Roads
