Take 2@2 for Wednesday, August 24, 2016

1984

Take 2@2 for Wednesday, August 24th 2016 our Lockn’ Pre-Party continues. Throughout the process of finding songs to highlight Lockn’ acts, one band is truly difficult to get on the radio, Ween. In going through our vast archives I did find one live performance that I was able to make into a radio audience friendly song.

In Nineteen Hundred Eighty-Four, Van Halen released their 6th album which they ingeniously titled, 1984. The record produced the group’s only number one hit “Jump” and is the last album with original singer David Lee Roth. One song from 1984 was a staple on MTv. Adolescent males hurried home to witness a video that described one strife high school boys had to endure. This is “Hot for Teacher.”

Lockn’ headliners Ween covered “Hot for Teacher” on their Live at Stubb’s album. The three disc set covers Ween’s previous seven albums. During this hootenanny down in Austin, Texas, Ween did this raucous cover of Van Halen. Ween plays Lock’ tomorrow night at 10pm and Friday night at 6pm.

I hope you enjoy today’s Take 2@2, sponsored by Brown Automotive Group.

Take 2@2 for Tuesday, August 23, 2016

mmj930

Take 2@2 for Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016 our Lockn’ Music Festival excitement continues to grow. Last week we received a request from Brian T. Brian suggests we play a cover performed by My Morning Jacket on August 16th, 2002. For the record, I didn’t know that this certain cover existed.
MMJMag

We’ll get to the original after the cover for today’s Take2. My Morning Jacket do an amazing job of transforming the song you are about to hear into a tune that could have come right from Jim James and Company.

The My Morning Jacket cover of “Suspicious Minds” was recorded at the 9:30 Club in 2002. MMJ make their Lockn’ debut as the headliners on Saturday night. They’re scheduled to take the stage at 10:20 pm.

Elvis Presley originally recorded the single in 1969.

I hope you enjoy today’s Take 2@2, sponsored by Brown Automotive Group.
