Fall 2009 Tour

Unread postby gs » Fri Aug 07, 2009 2:26 pm

Can't find a complete tour itinerary yet, but I just bought a ticket to Califone: Performing Music From "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers" at the Workplay Theater in Birmingham on October 28. I assume it's a music + film event since that venue has both a stage and a screen. So be on the lookout for shows in your town.

yes tim

it is another option... whereas the taped show can travel in all its beauty to the most remote places you as califone will never apppear at.. and thus spread the word about your music
.....remote places in switzerland or germany or france

any chance you will tour europe with the new album under your wings ?

Just got home from the opening night performance of the film...

The film itself is very good...started out slowly and I wasn't quite sure where it was going...and I've listened to ""All My Friends" at least once everyday since Sep. 8. But once it got rolling, things picked up and the ending tied things together very nicely and helped me understand some things about the album itself.

The guys played "Apelike", "Funeral Singers" and "Evidence" in full and snippets of other songs throughout the film. "Evidence" was played over the credits and was a great way to end the show. Very interesting experience overall.

I'm going again tomorrow night and if anyone from the band or the museum happens to read this before then, the one drawback was that I felt that the film audio was too loud...it made it difficult to understand some of the dialogue at times as well as the nuances of the live music itself.

After the film ended, there was a 15 minute or so intermission and then the band came back out and played a few songs off the new album, including "Polish Girls", "Bunuel" and "Better Angels" and a couple of others.

Sunday nights' show is, I believe, sold out, but if you get the chance to go, either here or anywhere on the tour, do so.

Great show gentlemen, thanks...

I wondered if that would be the case. Can you elaborate?

Sadly I don't think I'm going to be able to make any of the shows. Birmingham is only 4 hours away, and Nashville 3 hours, but work will keep me from either. Hopefully there will be some other opportunity to see the film in the future.

Thanks for the notes about the show. It's been a long time since I've seen these guys live so I like to hear about the experience for minute moments of vicarious living.

Mike, you should check out this interview from Chicago Public Radio -- it's the band talking about the film and album, and playing some of the songs:

Yes, that's a good call about listening to the radio show. If I told you specifics it might ruin the movie for you...the way things end is pretty cool and well thought out and if I'd known how things were going to play out it might not have been as gratifying.

But Mike, if you want to ask me specific questions, feel free. Also, one thing I can say without giving away too much is that some of the song titles are instrumental, (no pun intended) in making the film make sense.

Cool. Thanks for the link. I'll check it out when I have the time. Thanks also for withholding the explanation so as not to spoil the film experience for me. I'm sure I will eventually have a chance to take it in.

Cool! But man, I don't think they made it confusing enough.

Califone's on WNYC today at 2:30pm Eastern time... listen here: www.wnyc.org.

Picked this up from the Califone FB page. Should be a good listen.

Any truth to the sad rumor that the Birmingham show tomorrow night has been cancelled?

Yes, shows in Birmingham, Atlanta and Nashville were canceled. The Bloomington, Indiana show is still on. No word as to why the cancellations.

I just received an e-mail about the Birmingham cancellation.

It's very disappointing, but I hope everything is okay with the band.

Drove down from Chicago on a day not fit for man or beast to see my third show of the current tour. I believe that some, if not all of the band, did the same. Without going into details, they've refined the live performance to the film and as much as I liked it before, it was even better three weeks later(First two shows being Chicago). I see different things in the film each time.

After the film was finished the guys came back and played for an hour or possibly even more to a very enthusiastic and appreciative crowd. Thanks again for a fantastic end to a very long day.

I did the same thing. Worked all day Friday and then drove down to Bloomington for the show through some horrible weather. Forgot that they were/are an hour ahead and was worried I was going to miss the first half of the movie. Luckily it started late. I have to say it was well worth the drive. The guys played a great set after the movie. I felt the MCA show I saw was great (opening night) but this show was better. Great audience and great sound. Was really pleased to see them work Giving Away the Bride into the set.

Yep, that was one nasty drive. I saw them both nights at the MCA and the second night they played "Giving Away The Bride". It's good on the album, but really shines live.
